In 1948 Packard introduced a pseudo-station wagon called the Station Sedan. The wood, northern birch framing maple panels, was mostly decorative with only the rear quarters and gate assemblies being structural in nature. Unlike most station wagons of its time which seated eight or nine passengers, the Packard was strictly a six-seater with no provisions for a third seat, making it neither a sedan nor a true station wagon. The Station Sedan weighed a hefty 4,080 pounds. Its success was limited, selling only 3,266 in 1948 at the expense of $3,425 each. Highlights:
  • The 1948-1950 Packards were based on the 1946-1947 Clippers
  • The Station Sedan blended sedan and station wagon features
  • Price new: $3,425
