PACKARD LIGHT 8

Sedan, convertible coupé, coupé, 4-seater coupé, roadster, phaeton, sports phaeton, tourer, various customs.

Listed in '33 in this country, yet only produced in '32 in the States. Distinctive was the upswept grille, there was a new 1273/4ins frame using conventional running gear, though the four-speed 'box had gone, replaced by a synchromesh three speeder. It cost just as much as any other Ninth Series Packard to build, and was killed off for retailing at too low a price!
