1935 Packard with a LS3 V8

This 1935 Packard One-Twenty two-door sedan called “Lucille” was built by Rooster’s Rod Shop in Gaffney, South Carolina. The classic is powered by a 6.2 L LS3 V8 that makes 430 horsepower at 5,900 rpm and 425 lb-ft of torque at 4,600 rpm. Behind the engine sits a 8L90E eight-speed automatic transmission controlled by a PCS TCM with gear select module kit and push button shifter. A Moser 9-inch rear end sends power to each rear wheel. Underneath the body you find a custom chassis and suspension built by Reilly Motorsports with Wilwood six-piston brakes and Viking adjustable coilovers.

    This is one of the most beautiful builds I have seen. It is the complete package. Beautifully styled body kept close to the original design with upgraded driveline done tastefully. Rooster’s Rod Shop is steadily moving up my list of preferred builders.
