1938 Packard Eight Club Coupe

For the 1938 model year, the Eight platform, previously known as the 120, underwent a redesign that incorporated all-steel construction, eliminating the need for rubberized fabric roof panels in closed body styles. This particular example is a 1195 Club Coupe style, one of several body styles available on the 127″ standard wheelbase.

The model range was updated with new styling elements, including a V-shaped windshield with a central trim strip extending onto the roof, a fixed central hood panel, revised hood louvers, and thermostatically controlled grille shutters.

Under the hood, the 282ci inline-eight engine features side valves and was rated to produce 120 horsepower at 3,800 rpm.
