With its Fifteenth Series introduced in 1937, Packard offered its first six-cylinder car since 1927. Remarkably, the 100 horsepower 237 cubic inch L-head inline six-cylinder engine was capable of propelling the Packard Six down the highway at 100mph. Packard had entered the medium-price field in 1935 with its 120 model. Here is a six-cylinder version of what was essentially a 120. The Packard Six shared the same sheet metal and most of the mechanical components. With a 5-inch shorter wheelbase, the Packard Six has a shorter hood. The engine was basically a 120 Straight Eight less two cylinders. Less trim, and a blended interior fabric also helped differentiate it from the more powerful, larger 120.
