RealRides of WNY - 1948 Packard

This 1948 Packard Super 8 was w-a-y ahead of its time. As we learned from the brochure, “The interior of this distinguished sedan is finished in your choice of a gray or a tan color scheme.” Shades of 2021! We also learned about how the “…doors are equipped with pull-type handles and no-slam rotary latches… and ‘rear doors are broader,’ for easier ins-and-out.” I can’t verify it, but I’m going to go on record here and proclaim this the first use of the phrase “ins-and-outs” in post-war automobile advertising. We saw this one back in 2012 in the Village of Wilson.
