PACKARD SUPER 8 (1932-34)

Limousine.

Only one body style offered here; a shame as the other styles still attractive, despite the onset of skirted fenders in '33. Like Standard 8s, there were new frames for '32, with 142 and 147ins wheelbases, 17ins wheels were new for '33 and an oil rad/heat exchanger was new for '34. Typical of the thought behind the cars was the springing of the rear spring trunnion, and all the cars are handsome and splendidly proportioned.
