1930 Packard Phaeton
Pinewood Derby Car

I created this 1930 Packard Phaeton for the 2005 Cub Scout Pack 210 Pinewood Derby. Cub Scouts was also created in 1930 and this was the 75th Anniversary. The body of the car is entirely cut from pine. I used the typical Pinewood Derby kit for the body and added the small luggage box on the back, the removable top, the rounded headlights and the dowell rod bumpers. The top of the cab come off and there is a battery compartment inside. This is for the working headlights and taillights. I painted it to match the most popular color scheme of the 1930 Packard Phaeton.
