A number of years ago I saw a one page calendar that showed all the Ford 
pickup trucks from the first one to the present day. I thought , what a nice idea.
I thought that I might try something similar with 
some of the car pictures I have collected.
I have been collecting pictures of Studebakers, Packards Nash, Hudson
and Jeeps for some time now and I first wrote a web page on the Studebaker.
Then one on Jeeps  and Packard followed.
Now I thought I would try a web page on the Nash and Hudson.
I have since added a page on old Pickup Trucks , Hudson. Essex and Terrplanes
of Australia , Volkswagen ,  Kaiser and Henry J and now I with the
help of one of my visitors have written on on the Crosley

These pictures came for a number of sources including 
web pages of the manufacture, news groups and my own.
Since most of these pictures came from news groups there may 
be a chance that your car is shown here.

I would like to invite any one that has a favorite Packard picture or a Web Page
that they would like added to this page to E mail me a copy.

The Packard began it's life in the early 1890's when Ward Packard first got the idea to build a motor car. In 1903 the Packard Motor Car Company was formed.
By 1909 packard was one of the major automobile manufactures in America.
Also by 1909 James Ward  Packard was ready to retire and turn the presidency over to Henry Joy who had joined Packard in 1901 Under his direction the Packard company had grown to 6000 employees and their factory covered 33 acres of floor space. They continued to build high quality expensive cars.
By 1925 packard was the indisputable leader in the field of prestige automobiles.
The depression of the 1930's hurt Packard. By 1934 their production had dropped to below 7000 units per year from a high of more then 50,000 in 1928. Big multi cylinder cars were just not selling.
It was during this period that Packard decided to build a lower priced automobile and the 120 series was brought out. This move saved Packard for another 20 years.
The Packard 120, named for it's 120 inch wheel base was announced in 1935.
In 1939 Packard stopped production of it's V 12 engine and would never again regain the prestige it once had.
By 1941 the traditional Packard lines were almost completely gone with the introduction of the Packard Clipper.
In 1954 Packard bought Studebaker but it was too late to save Packard.
It remained in production until August 15'th 1956.
A 56 year history came to an end.
In 1957 the company tried to save the Packard name by introducing a dressed up
Studebaker with the Packard name on it.
This didn't fool the buying public. This was tried again in 1958 but only 1745 were sold.
That move ended the packard forever.

An interesting footnote sent to me by Robert Dowling, one of my visitors.

Packard bought the ailing Studebaker Corp.
The Packard stock holders got the short end of the deal. Upper management thought they could ride on the (former) prestige of Packard and have Stude. compete with Chevrolet. It didn't work and in two years the
Studebaker-Packard Corp. was facing insolvency. Creditors demanded they get rid of one of the two manufacturing plants. Unfortunately they chose to keep the Studebaker plant in South Bend Ind. and dump the Packard plant in Detroit. Management soon realised their plan was failing, but it was to late. The South Bend plant was not designed to handle cars as wide as the old Packards as was the old Detroit plant, so they couldn't go back and start production of big wide cars again. I've seen design plans for the "New Packards". If you've seen a late 50's early 60's Lincoln Continental (the one with the slanted head lights) or the infamous Edsel thats what they looked like. When I first saw them I thought it they were for Ford products.
Think about it! If you take the front of an Edsel an replace the "Horse collar" with a little grill shaped like a Clipper grill, you've got the Idea! I can't remember if Ford bought the plans or the design team went over to Ford after Packard folded. After the dismal sales of "Packardbakers" (Those Studebakers with the funny looking add-ons) they dropped the Packard
name. In 64 they dropped the name completely and moved production to Canada.

The following is an interesting true story provided by Harold Youmans

Back in 1899 when the first motorized vehicles were starting to appear, a young engineer that had recently graduated from college was fascinated with the new motor cars and wanted desperately to be a part of that industry.  He was especially impressed with a car that was winning many of the races conducted to advertise the car's power and technology. Many times the cars would race against a horse to prove their endurance. 
The car this young engineer favored was the Winton automobile.
(Winton made automobiles from 1898 until going out of business in the 1930's) 
The young engineer decided to purchase a Winton automobile and it was 
delivered to Detroit in the year 1900 on a flat bed train car.
After cleaning up the dust and protective grease he took it for a test drive. 
He was pleased with the performance but felt there were a few things that could be improved. 
As a good engineer, he dismantled the car and made note of areas that could stand improvement.
He felt that if he could inform Mr. Winton about these items that he would be 
offered a position in the Winton factory. Upon reading the letter, Mr. Winton did not care for the impudence of the young
upstart engineer and immediately replied to him.
The letter that Mr. Winton sent to the young engineer is currently on file in the Smithsonian Institute.
 It read: Dear Mr. Packard, if you feel you can build a better car, I suggest you try. 
And the rest is history.
