Packard Model 3-48 (1448) Six Runabout

The fourth iteration, the 4-48, came along in 1914. It had a stout moteur six-cylinder, an L-head configuration and 82 horsepower.


From February through June of 1914, there were 441 units of the Packard 4-48 produced. Today, there are less than 10 that remain. The engine that powered the 4-48 was a six-cylinder unit that displaces 525 cubic-inches (8603 cm3) and produced 60 horsepower. These cars were advertised as the ‘Dominant Six.’

The engine was rather impressive, having an L-head design and seven main bearings. Braking was from seventeen-inch brake drums, which replaced the prior fifteen-inch units.

All 4-48 models, including the runabouts, rode on a 144-inch (3657,6 mm) wheelbase.

The Packard 1-48 for 1914 cost an astonishing 4,650 at a time when the average price of a new car was just $500.00 and an average yearly wage was $1300.

These cars boasted 37-inch tires over wood spoke wheels, electric head and side lamps, aluminum bodies, and the soon-to-be-standardized left-hand drive.
