The Packard Eight was a luxury automobile produced between 1930 and 1936, and was a progression from the earlier Packard Six which was first introduced in 1913.
The Packard Eight was offered in four models, the Standard Eight, Custom Eight, De Luxe Eight, and Speedster. It was powered by a low-compression aluminum-head inline-8 producing 90 bhp (67 kW) (hence the name). The Eight offered optional (no extra cost) four-speed sunchromesh transmission .Like other Packards of this era, it featured Ride Control, a system of dash-adjustable hydraulic shock absorber. The Eight also featured automatic chassis lubrication and "shatterproof" glass.
The Eight was available on several wheelbases, from 324 to 370 cm. For 1938, the Eight's wheelbase was stretched 7 in (180 mm) over 1937, and the body was also wider.
