Description for Packard Single Six 1940

Joan is a pleasure to drive and own. (Joan, as in Joan Crawford, is my 1940 Model 110 Packard's' name) And true to her namesake, Joan turns heads to stare, receives long looks, and catches many "wolf" whistles as she passes on by heading down the road. Cruising and touring,are a couple of her specialties. Joan runs, drives, stops, has turn signals, honks, has a backup light, and turns corners with no problems.When I take the grand kids for ice cream, she always draws a crowd of admirers. " What kind of car is she ?". and "Love the color !" are the most mentioned comments. At car shows..... ah, well what can I say!
Joan runs well, and she looks very good (and to even make it all better) Joan is very RARE!
First of all, most of the younger people don't even know what a Packard is nor the story behind Packard and the mark Packard made on automobile history. And secondly, when was the last time you saw a two door Packard? Joan is the Packard company's answers to Ford, Dodge, Chevrolet's' "family sedan" slot on the market. Made smaller and lighter the 110 Model (which is what Joan is) was the answer to family automobile needs. Packard had always been a BIG car, a favorite of the wealthy, and had earned a BIG name as America's finest mass produced automobile. But, during the mid 1930's ALL of the automobilemanufactures were feeling the pinch of the Great Depression. For Packard something had to be done to increase sales. They decidedto produce a smaller, more economical car that the middle class could own and operate. The Packard 6 cylinder models were to be the answer. Most of the model 110 werefour door models but the two door models were also available.And so, the Packard "family sedan" was born."Why buy a Ford or Chevroletfamilysedanwhenyou can own a Packard?
