Well documented with 35,472 actual miles, car #2027 is specifically mentioned within The Packard Cormorant Magazine (Winter,80-81), article Those Rare 1942 Packard Convertibles by A.H.

During 1988, Christine Roddy sold the car to Betsy Williams of Northern California, who was known as a serious Packard enthusiast. Although the car was a solid actual mile survivor, Betsy would embark on a fastidious professional quality body-on frame restoration/preservation, one that required several decades to complete. The extended time was mainly due to her insistence that any important parts required Must Be NOS original components and the extra time it took to locate them...
During 2012, Betsy's husband T.C. Williams sold the car to the current caretaker Ray M. of Southern California whom is an avid and meticulous collector, one that insists that all components be in full working order, as near perfect in cosmetic presentation as possible and finally, it must be roadworthy.
