Packard unveiled its latest Tenth Series models in January 1933. As part of the lineup, the Standard Eight was succeeded by the Eight, which came in two variations based on wheelbase length. The first option was the 1001, featuring a shorter 127.5-inch wheelbase, and it offered a choice of four coachwork styles, including the sporty Coupe Roadster.
Across the entire range of eight-cylinder vehicles, Packard made significant engineering enhancements. These included the introduction of a new dual downdraft Stromberg carburetor and a special manifold that boosted the power output to an impressive 120 horsepower.
