NEW HAMBURG, Ontario - Feb. 20, 2024 - PRLog -- A spectacular 1927 Packard Eight 443 seven-passenger touring car and mid-20th century toys made by West German maker Schuco will come up for bid in online auctions held Friday, March 1st (Toys) and Saturday, March 2nd (Petroliana & Advertising) by Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd.

The March 1st Toys auction has a start time of 4 pm Eastern and features the late Howard Meyer Legacy Collection. Up for bid will be 180 lots, all of them toys. The Petroliana & Advertising auction the following day, March 2nd, begins at 9 am Eastern time and will contain 398 lots of petroliana (gas station collectibles), advertising signs, toys, soda advertising and model planes.

"Howie Meyer's legacy continues with his carefully curated Schuco collection," said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. "Every toy was hand selected with Howie's discerning eye. The March 2nd sale is bound to delight a wide range of collectors. Highlights include toys and display model aircraft, gas pumps, dealer signs and advertising, and a lineup of Red Indian."

The 1927 443 Packard has been known for decades as "The Lindbergh Packard" and is the undisputed star lot of the two days. The 443 series was built between 1927-1928. This low mileage, numbers matching car underwent a meticulous restoration in 2005 by Stan Uher of Classic Coachworks in Blenheim, Ontario, where it was returned to its original black finish.

Packards of this era are renowned for their luxurious finishes and exceptional engineering. The car looks intimidating, but on the road it offers a smooth, easy ride. The tan wheels and well-fitted Haartz cloth top with boot are complementary. The interior including the rear jump seat was tailored with chestnut leather. The wood-grain dash has a tooled leather gauge panel.

"The Lindbergh Packard" was on permanent display at the Antique Auto Museum in Niagara Falls, Ontario during the 1960s. It was said to have been made for Charles 'Lucky' Lindbergh, although hard evidence remains to be found. The museum subsequently closed and the car has remained in private collections ever since. It carries a pe-sale estimate of $225,000-$250,000.
