Description

The six cylinder Packard, also known as the single-six, was introduced in 1921 as a smaller companion to the 12 cylinder model called the twin six. Packard drew on its aero-engine experience during World War I to create a 288.6 cid, 6 cylinder engine that produced 81 horsepower. By 1928 the Single-Six would feature four-wheel brakes, Bijur chassis lubrication, aluminum pistons, and revised combustion chambers and manifolds. So popular was the Single-six, that Cadillac would introduce a companion model called the LaSalle to compete head-on with it. 1928 would be the last year for the Single-Six, from here on out Packard would concentrate on its eight-cylinder engine and the new V12 until introducing a new 6-cylinder engine for 1937.
