Car producer : 



236 Eight 244 Touring





The Eight was available in either a 136- or 143-inch size and offered with 12 cataloged factory bodies. Disc wheels and balloon tires became standard and a new Bijur chassis lubrication system was added. Beginning during the spring of 1926, a Hotchkiss drive was added. For 1927, Packard introduced Bijur chassis lubrication and hypoid final drive gears to their Eight Series. The engine was enlarged, now displacing 6.3-liters. Horsepower rose accordingly, now rated at 105 bhp. Top speed was in the neighborhood of 80 mph. Optional color schemes became available at no additional charge in 1927.

The opportunity to take the rolling chassis to a custom coachbuilder was also made available to the customers. A special custom catalog offered a four-passenger sedan cabriolet by Judkins, town cabriolet by Fleetwood, a five-passenger stationary town cabriolet by Derham, a seven-passenger limousine sedan by Holbrook, and three custom models designed by the legendary designer, Dietrich.
