The “Packard Model 3-35 Twin-Six Touring” (1919) came with a 12-cylinder V-engine and a cylinder capacity of 6950 cc | 424.1 cu in. transmitting a force of 90 hp @ 2600 RPM. Designed by Colonel Jesse Vincent. This engine drove the company’s prestige models until 1922.
With a capacity for 7 passengers, its wheelbase was 135 in | 3429 mm.
Introduced in August 1919, the 3-35 represented 2,715 models sold that year. There were few significant changes to the 1918-1919 models. Packard itself did not distinguish between models, nor did it keep production records by model year.
The aluminum pistons now had two compression rings and an oil scraper. Also, the intake and exhaust manifolds were redesigned. Even with these improvements, the horsepower rated remained at 90, although the rated RPM figure droped from 3000 to 2600.
