1937 Packard 115-C Six

The Packard 115-C was the company's first six-cylinder car since 1927. The 115-C was positioned as a low-priced vehicle that could serve as a companion to the company's very successful One Twenty. The six-cylinder engine in the 115-C was basically from the One Twenty but with two fewer cylinders. It was an L-head straight-six that displaced 237 cubic-inches and produced 100 horsepower. There was a three-speed selective synchromesh gearbox with a single disc clutch. Hydraulic drum brakes could be found at all four corners. The wheelbase measured 115-inches and offered in several body styles including coupe (Business, Convertible, and Sport Coupe), Sedan (Club Sedan, 5-passenger sedan, and touring sedan), and a station wagon. Pricing ranged from around $800 - $1300.
