1925 Packard Model 236

The name Packard Model 236 was in reference to its Second Series production and its 136-inch wheelbase platform. Also available was the 143-inch wheelbase used by the Model 243. The larger, 7-passenger body styles used this longer wheelbase, while the smaller and sportier cars rested on the 136-inch platform. With the Second Series, Packard dropped the 'Single Eight' designation and was now simply called the Eight. The L-head straight-eight engine was similar to the First Series unit, a 357.8 cubic-inch displacement with a Packard updraft carburetor with Fuelizer, nine main bearings, and delivering 85 horsepower at 3,000 RPM. The Bijur chassis lubrication was a new feature, and the Skinner Oil Rectifier was also new but less progressive. Disc wheels and balloon tires were now standard, and a Hotchkiss drive system was adopted on later models.

Initially, the Model 236 wore standard Packard colors, but with the introduction of pyroxylin lacquers by mid-1925, the list of available colors grew.
