1933 Packard 1002 Standard Eight

In 1933 the Packard Standard Eight became known as simply the Eight. A dual downdraft carburetor, smaller flywheel, automatic choke and revised manifold helped boost the trademark Eight's horsepower to over 120. Wire wheels now became standard with discs and wood wheels becoming optional. There were seventeen different body styles available, all of which were effectively marketed to the American public who responded by spending nearly $20,000,000 on new 1933 Packards and, though not phenomenal, it was impressive that Packard was able to claim a profit during such trying economic times.
