After Cadillac introduced the first mass-produced V-8 engine for its 1915 models, Packard raised the stakes with the first series-production V-12. Presented for the 1916 model year, the Packard Twin Six was made until 1923 and returned for 1932. The tourings were among the most popular styles.

The Twin Six's reliable engine of almost seven liters (424.1 cubic-inch) was noted for smooth acceleration in high gear and sufficient power to propel some of the models to 70 mph with this 88 hp engine. The 3-speed manual transmission had been moved from the rear axle to the back of the clutch. The Twin Six established Packard's reputation overseas for quality. At a time when engines were bolted solidly to the frame, Packard cars achieved an unprecedented level of smoothness with their light-weight connecting rods and pistons.

Twin Sixes had press-steel frames and were built on a choice of 125, or 135-in. wheelbase. The open models were painted in blue striped with cream-yellow. The hood and fenders were black; however, and the huge three-ft.-diameter artillery wheels were cream yellow striped with black. Standard equipment included a top that could be raised by one man, side curtains, a windshield, horn, clock, tire carrier and pump, and a complete tool kit. The car sold new for $2,600 to $3,350.

Here at last was a luxury car that produced exceedingly smooth power at all speed ranges and the Twin Six established Packard's reputation overseas for quality.
