PACKARD EIGHT/120

Touring saloon, fixed-head coupé, convertible coupé, convertible saloon, limousine.

Still with sidevalves, available as the Eight in '38 and the 120 in '39. Three chassis lengths in '38 and two in '39, still an attractive car and unmistakably a Packard. Overdrive available from '39, making it an even better touring car. Refinements include thermostatically controlled rad shutters and anti-roll bar. Competitively priced at £715 for the convertible saloon, and in the States the Darrin bodied 120 Victoria was simply stunning.
