1950 Packard Deluxe 8 Description

Go Pack(ard) GO!!!! We have an awe inspiring 1950 Packard Deluxe 8. This is decked out to commemorate the Green Bay Packers. It features a 288 Straight 8 with a Chrysler Torqueflight 727 3 speed automatic transmission which transfers power back to a 1952 Packard rear axle featuring a 3:55 gear ratio. It also has an FM chip installed in the radio to allow FM stations to come through on the factory radio. Take this beauty tailgating to all the games, you will not be disappointed in the amount of heads that will turn while driving this beauty!

Although the postwar Packards sold well, the ability to distinguish expensive models from lower-priced models disappeared as all Packards, whether sixes or eights, became virtually alike in styling. Further, amid a booming seller's market, management had decided to direct the company more to volume middle-class models, thus concentrating on selling lower-priced cars instead of more expensive--and more profitable--models. Worse, they also tried to enter the taxi cab and fleet car market. The idea was to gain volume for the years ahead, but that target was missed: Packard simply was not big enough to offer a real challenge to the Big Three, and lacked the deep pockets with which a parent company could shelter them, as well as the model lineup through which to spread the pricing.

As a result, Packard's image as a luxury brand was further eroded. As Packard lost buyers of expensive cars, it could not find enough customers for the lesser models to compensate. The shortage of raw materials immediately after the war--which was felt by all manufacturers--hurt Packard more with its volume business than it would have had it had focused on the specialty luxury car market.
