1931 Packard 845

Packard 845: Traditionally known as an American luxury automobile, the cars that the Packard Motor Company produced came straight from Detroit, Michigan and later South Bend, Indiana. The Packards were in production from 1899 to 1958, not a bad run, considering it endured the turn of a century, two world wars, and the Great Depression. In a brash attempt to defy the stock market crash that set off the Depression in 1929, Packard decided to up the ante; it produced even more expensive, great looking cars. The result: the Packard Twelve. The company had only one production line, which helped to keep its costs low, certainly helping to keep the company afloat during such hard economic times.
