During what years were Packards
The first Packard was driven on the streets of Warren Ohio on November 6, 1899.
Production continued in Warren until
1903 when Packard moved to Detroit, MI. From 1903 to 1956 Packards were produced in
Detroit, MI. In 1956 Packard and Studebaker merged with the
Studebaker name surviving. From 1957 to 1958 a badged Packard was produced at the Studebaker plant in South Bend Indiana.
In all an estimated 1.5 to 1.6 million Packards were produced between 1899-1958.
Why should I join?

classis automobiles. Our members are very knowledgeable on Packards, their history, service, and parts availability.
