Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum
...the best thing I could do was to try and preserve a museum with a collection of one model for each year of the company’s existence, between 1900-1958. - Arthur Stone
Welcome to the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum, the local museum featuring motor cars, related memorabilia, and a gallery dedicated entirely to Franklin Delanor Roosevelt.
This museum was created out of the vision of Mr. Arthur Stone, who highly appreciated pristine Packard cars, which is why this museum is sometimes called the Packard Car Museum. In fact, inside you will find the largest collection of Packard cars and historic memorabilia related to them from 1900 and on!
As you explore the museum you will get to 'indulge in some of the industrial age's greatest achievements', with daily tours that take you through the vast number of cars on display plus the array of hood ornaments, old gas station signs, carburetors, gear-shift knobs, horns, ashtrays, lamps, vintage magazines and photos, and much more. See pristine Packards up close, each containing a detailed analysis from inception to discontinuation. Some examples of cars you will see include the Gentlemen's Runabout Speedster, the 1922 Model 126 Sport Phaeton, the 1958 Model Hawk, and much more.
