1934 Packard 1104 Super Eight

For 1934, Packard expanded its catalogue, from six models resting on five wheelbases to nine models on six wheelbases. The Eleventh Series were given new fender contours, with the fronts curving downward reaching nearly to the front fender. Additional changes were made to the hood door handles, running boards, better upholstery, radiator caps, and a fuel filler integrated into the left tail lamp. The engine compartment featured a new oil cooler and a new oil filter. Due to an optional radio, Packard installed a larger generator.

The 1934 Packard 1104 had a wheelbase that reached nearly 142 inches and power was supplied by an L-head straight eight engine displacing 384.8 cubic-inches and offered 145 horsepower. There was a three-speed selective synchromesh transmission and mechanical brakes on all wheels.
