Highlights

- First post-war design for Packard.

- Extensive facelift of basic 1946-1947 design resulted in fatter appearance, termed by some as a “pregnant elephant.”

- Good year for Packard with total 92,251 cars produced; Only 7,763 Series 22 Custom Eights produced.

- Decision to remain in mid-priced market, rather than just high-end luxury, now seen as strategic error.

- Price new: $3,250.

Provenance

Acquired January 2012.
