THE PACKARD EIGHT

Always built to the highest standards, the Packard was unquestionably one of the finest American cars of the pre-war era. First introduced in 1924, the Eight was notable as the first Packard to employ four-wheel brakes. Its side-valve straight-eight engine developed 85bhp from 5.9 liters, and the model Eight line-up initially comprised ten models on two wheelbase lengths. In 1927 the engine was enlarged to 6.3 liters and a smaller 5.2-liter Standard Eight was introduced for 1929, with the larger engine continuing to power the Custom and DeLuxe Eights. The latter was re-christened 'Super Eight' for 1933, by which time all Packards featured synchromesh transmissions.

The height of the Depression did not dampen the artistic inspirations of the automobile industry. The years 1930–1937 produced some of the finest styling seen in the automotive world even to this day. Packard, who always producing beautifully styled and functioning machines before, truly spread its wings during this period. Like many great works of art, some of humanity's greatest triumphs are inspired during the toughest times.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

1933 Packards are wonderfully made and styled automobiles - it was only a shame there were so few who could afford to buy them. 10th series production totaled a meager 4,800 units, a far cry from the 16,613 for the 9th series, and way down from the nearly 55,000 sold in 1929. The 10th series would represent Packard's smallest output of the Classic era.

Built on the 142-inch wheelbase, the model 1004 was offered with 14 individual body styles. Priced at $3,090, the 7-Passenger Sedan was one of the more expensive body styles available but was still one of the more popular ones for its luxurious practicality. All the same, only 1,327 Super Eight chassis were built, 788 of which were the longer wheel base models.

This particular Packard was sold new in New York City by Park Avenue Packard. It would have been quite a sight when new in the Big Apple. It is most unusual as touring cars are quite rare in this era, with the fashion trending toward all-weather cars. This body style does give some evidence to it being a government use vehicle as touring cars such as this were very popular with high ranking government officials.

The seven passenger touring car designs by Packard are some of the best-looking touring cars of the period. Under the watchful eye of Ed Macauley, director of Packard styling division, graceful art deco influenced designs, that were also influenced by Raymond Dietrich, were crafted and fitted. These bodies were of the utmost quality.

Restored a number of years ago, today this car presents very nicely as an older restoration. A CCCA senior award winner, this car has been in current ownership since 2007, were it has been carefully maintained and kept in climate-controlled storage. It is quite fetching in its brown color scheme with light brown interior.

This Packard would make an excellent choice for various vintage car events. This was the first year of the dual throat carburation which led to a noticeable improvement in performance, making these cars very roadable even today. This tourer is sure to bring its next owner years of high quality and refined motoring.
