Our Prized Convertible Victoria Features The Only Dietrich Custom Interior We Have Ever Seen
Winning four distinct awards since 2015 including first place at Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, and St. John’s, this 1934 Packard Twelve 1107 Convertible Victoria is a unique piece of history. With a LeBaron body and the only Dietrich custom interior we have seen, this work of art is one of the prized pieces of The JBS Collection.
This model was only offered by Packard for three years of production with the 1934 model being the most sought after of all. Today, there are fewer than ten Packard 1107 Convertible Victoria still in existence. This car was the first Packard model that offered a radio option, and our Victoria has that option installed.
An Interior Like None Other
This vehicle is the only Dietrich custom interior that we or our partners have ever seen. That is important. That is history.
Raymond Dietrich of Dietrich Inc.
Raymond Dietrich was the first head of design at Chrysler, and Dietrich was a co-founder of LeBaron Inc., which designed the body of our 1934 Packard Twelve Victoria.
His designs went beyond the automobile industry as well. After his retirement, his reputation and astute eye for flow and lines drew him out of retirement when Gibson Guitars convinced him to design an instrument. Dietrich rose to the occasion, designing the iconic Gibson Firebird guitar. And he, of course, founded Dietrich Inc. in 1925.
