Packard Model 1- 35 Twin-Six Touring

The Packard Model 1- 35 Twin-Six Touring (1916) came with a 12 cylinder V engine and a displacement of 6950 cc | 424.1 cu in. transmitting a force of 88 hp (64,768 KW) @ 2600 RPM. Designed by Colonel Jesse Vincent. This engine powered the company’s prestige models up to 1922.


With a capacity for 7 passengers, its wheelbase was 126.5 in | 3213 mm.

The new “twin six” was a vehicle that would place the company in the luxury field for the next two decades and set the tone of Packard’s over-all thinking for many years.

The cars were keyed directly to the upper scale sales bracket. Two series were offered the, 1-25 with nine models and the 1-35 with 13 styles. The designations were based on wheelbase not horsepower.

The 2 door passenger coupe cost was $2,700 and the 3 passenger coupe was $3,700.

One of the “Twin Six’s” best testimonials came from the home of Rolls Royce. ‘For twenty years the Packard car had held the reputation of being in America what the Rolls Royce is in England.’ The chassis of the new “Twin-six” bears no resemblance to earlier Packard’s it is channel section pressed steel 6 inches deep. The front axles are I-beam with roller bearings and rear axles are beam tubular steel, semi-floating.
