Packard 1924

Packard’s largest cars appeared in the Single Eight 143 series, which used a brand new chassis of 143-inch wheelbase. Only two 7-passenger Sedans and one Touring Car appeared in the series. Known officially as Body No. 245 the $3,850 Touring Car is shown here with an attractive set of disc wheels.
Upholstery and panels are in red leather, while the top is of a canvas material. Dual sidemounts would have looked great on this model, but in 1924 Packard offered neither the sidemounts or the welled fenders necessary for their installation.
The jump seats, robe rail and courtesy light make this car very attractive. The white wall tires and a rear mounted spare give this car a very long look. Complete with wind wings and a Packard accessory motometer
