Here’s a look at the above new additions to The Vault at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
1939 Packard Twelve Landaulet by Brewster
The 1920s saw the coachbuilding industry allowing clients to have exclusive customization abilities, especially for those who could afford to acquire it.
The body of this Packard was constructed by Brewster to the specification of Post Cereals-heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and was originally used on a 1927 Rolls-Royce chassis.
In 1935, when the Rolls-Royce was ready to be traded in for a new model, Ms. Post, so captivated by the bespoke coachwork, had it removed from the original Rolls-Royce and fitted on the more technically superior Packard Twelve chassis that she purchased specifically for it.
In 1939, she repeated the process by placing the body on another new updated Packard Twelve chassis.
This example is built in the “landaulet de Ville” style, with the coachwork comprises a top hat that can only be lowered over the rear-seat passengers. This allowed the chauffeur to stay enclosed in isolation and free from distraction as he maneuvers the heavy vehicle around.
1948 Bentley Mark VI “New Look” Saloon by James Young
In the early 1920s, British coachbuilding company James Young Ltd. commenced designing and constructing bodies on Bentley chassis.

2023 Honda SCL500 Review With Riding Videos
New for the 2023 model year is American Honda’s 2023 SCL500. This is a new scrambler-style streetbike. This new motorcycle is based on the underpinnings of its ultrapopular Rebel 500 cruiser and is priced at $6,799 so it represents good value in the class versus bikes similar to Royal Enfield’s Scram 411.
The SCL500 is powered by Honda’s tried-and-true 471cc parallel-twin engine. It features an eight-valve cylinder head, dual overhead cam, water-cooling, and fuel injection. This nets around 43 ponies and 30 lb.-ft. torque at the business and at the Dunlop Trailmax 17-inch tire.

2023 Honda SCL500 Gallery
We take a spin on American Honda’s new-for-2023 SCL500 scrambler. (Drew Ruiz/)
The SCL500 wears fork gaiter boots that give a scrambler aesthetic. (Drew Ruiz/)
The 471cc parallel twin is smooth and easy to command. It pumps out nearly 40 horsepower at the rear tire. (Drew Ruiz/)
Despite its engine size (and price) the SCL500 is a real, full-size motorcycle that will fit a range of riders both big and small. (Drew Ruiz/)
The styling certainly isn’t our favorite but we value the upswept muffler and ribbed seat. (Drew Ruiz/)
In typical Honda fashion, the exhaust note is muted and does a great job of not attracting unwanted attention. (Drew Ruiz/)
The SCL500 is an easy-riding bike that offers above-average handling capability on curvy tarmac. (Drew Ruiz/)
The cockpit of the SCL500 is cozy and accommodating for large and small riders alike. (Drew Ruiz/)
Twin shocks with over 5 inches of suspension travel and a long wheelbase afford a cozy ride over bumpy road surfaces. (Drew Ruiz/)
Instrumentation is simple and effective. It can be difficult to read in direct sunlight however. (Drew Ruiz/)
Riders seeking a quality, full-size scrambler-type motorcycle (for light off-roading) will value the 2023 SCL500. (Drew Ruiz/)
