It was with both great surprise and great fanfare that Packard introduced its Ninth Series in June 1931, nearly eight months ahead of the typical new model introduction. The Standard Eight Series 901 and 902, the Deluxe Eight Series 903 and 904, and the Individual Custom Eight, also under the Series 904, received significant updates over the short model run of the preceding Eighth Series. Packard further astounded the automotive world with the January introduction of the new Light Eight, its first medium-priced automobile, along with the return of the Twin Six V-12 at the upper-end of the company's price strata. .
