1929 Packard Standard Eight - 5 Passenger Sedan - Body Model 6-26 / Type Number 333
Throughout most of the classic era, Packard outsold all of its competitors in the United
States-including Lincoln, Cadillac and Pierce-Arrow. At its peak, in 1928, Packard built some of
the most luxurious cars available anywhere in the world.
Power is supplied by Packard's legendary 319.2 cubic-inch straight-eight motor, which developed 90 horsepower.
These later models were easily identified by the round-back headlights that replaced the earlier drum-backs style.
Packard, originally called the Ohio Automobile Company, was founded by two brothers, James Ward and William Dowd Packard in the city of Warren Ohio. By 1925, Packard was considered the indisputable leader in the field of prestige automobiles.
In 1929 Packard prices started at $2,600, while Henry Ford was producing vehicles that sold
The Packard brothers offered a more refined automobile with an improved design and innovations
like the modern steering wheel.
Packard built vehicles were consistently considered the elite in luxury automobiles and developed a following not only in the United States, but also abroad.
1929 was a big year for Packard, as all of their vehicles were now fitted with straight-
eight engines. The Model 626 rode on a 126.5-inch chassis. Mounted under the bonnet was a
319.2 cubic-inch engine that produced 90 horsepower.
There was a three-speed selective transmission with a single plate clutch, shaft drive and hypoid differential.
1929 was Packard's most successful year. More than 54,000 vehicles were sold during the model year. It was the first year of production for the Standard Eight in-line engine.
There were 5 bodystyles available on the 626. This Five Passenger Sedan that was built on August 10th of 1929. It was sent from the factory to the Horst & Mooney distributor in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
This Packard sedan is especially unique since it retains most of its original features. It
has been passed down from grandfather to grandson and was restored no less than 20 years ago.
Few vintage cars remain in this condition today.

forces, thus eliminating vibration.
