Known History

Packard introduced the 645 Deluxe Eight, a chassis specifically designed for the extravagant custom and semi-custom bodies of the time, before the stock market crashed in 1929. These long-wheelbase cars, with their long hoods and strong and silent nine-main-bearing engines, have come to be regarded by collectors as the ultimate examples of Packard's Sixth Series cars.

 

Several improvements meant Packard's Sixth Series cars were a cut above the previous year's lineup, as well as the competition's. The suspension featured a shock-absorbed “loose trunnion” suspension system that was remarkably similar to what one might find on a modern-day automobile. This development led to the design of a rocker mount held in place by four short compression springs; road shock was absorbed by the forward and backward movement of this loose trunnion.
