PACKARD SUPER 8 (1938)

5-seat saloon, 5-seat club sedan, 7-seat limousine, drophead coupé.

New for '38 (or the Sixteenth Series) was a vee 'screen and a more modern dash, while an ivory steering wheel was used. By now it was the only Packard in production with an alloy crankcase, and this was the last year the Super Eight would wear its own distinctive coachwork.
