WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – The National Packard Museum, which specializes in the luxury car brand, is getting a new addition to its collection.
The museum in Warren is now displaying a 1937 V12 Packard Roadster.
It is one of 70 models made at Packard’s Detroit factory that year, and there are only 20 left.
The car was a gift to the museum by Edward Lozick, of the Cleveland area, who made arrangements to donate it after he died.
“On many occasions, this particular owner was approached by collectors to buy this car and his constant comment was, ‘No, this is going to the National Packard Museum,'” said Executive Director Maryann Porinchak. “He stuck by his word.”
Collectors offered Lozick $300,000 for the car, which can now be seen in the museum’s Great Hall.
