Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum commemorates the history, engineering, and design behind the luxury, American-made Packard line with an immense collection of mint-condition cars and memorabilia housed in a 30,000-square-foot facility. Feast eyes upon the whitewall tires and suicide doors of the 1929 Dual Cowl phaeton, designed by coachbuilder Raymond H. Dietrich, or marvel the pristine running boards and quilted-leather interior of the 1909 Packard Speedster 60th, the museum's oldest model. The showroom reproduces the feeling of a 1920s showroom with vaulted ceilings, nostalgic gas-station signs, and walls bedecked with pictures, documents, steering wheels, and taillights. Inside the library, guests peruse shelves laden with rare period magazines, vintage photographs, and the uneaten crumbs of Henry Ford's breakfast muffin. Children younger than 12 are welcome free of charge.

Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum

Arthur Stone spent six decades assembling the collection of classic Packard autos that makes up the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum. His love for the Packard's combination of engineering and elegance has resulted in the United States' largest Packard collection, containing one model from each year of the company's 58-year existence. The museum's 30,000-square-foot space mirrors the look of a 1920s Packard showroom, with heraldic-style gas-station signs hanging above gleaming specimens of auto history, all restored to full working order.

Models such as the 2201 Woodie wagon from 1948 demonstrate the manufacturer's innovation amid changing times, and the 1909 18 Speedster evokes an era when saddled cheetahs shared roads with cars. Original concept-design drawings line the walls, and an expansive library contains shelves laden with periodicals and fascinating reading materials.

Customer Reviews

This is a wonderful Museum. The two Saturday Curators gave a wonderful personal tour and were so knowledgable about the cars and the museum - it was fantastic to not only see the cars but hear the history and factoids about the cars and the other memorabilia. If you're a car or antique nut it's a must visit. Well worth it.
