  • First post-war design for Packard
  • Extensive facelift of basic 1946-1947 design resulted in fatter appearance, termed by some as a “pregnant elephant”
  • Good year for Packard with total 92,251 cars produced; Only 7,763 Series 22 Custom Eights produced
  • Decision to remain in mid-priced market, rather than just high-end luxury, now seen as strategic error
  • Price new: $3,250
