1910 Packard Model 18 4-Passenger Touring Car

Packard was an American luxury automobile marque built by the Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan, United States. The first Packard automobiles were produced in 1899, and the last Detroit-built Packard in 1956, when they built the Packard Predictor, their last concept car.

Packard bought Studebaker in 1953 and formed the Studebaker-Packard Corporation of South Bend, Indiana. The 1957 and 1958 Packards were actually badge engineered Studebakers, built in South Bend.

Packard began its second decade of production by adding a new 'City' model, the Model 18, introduced in late 1908, as a smaller version of the popular Model 30. The pricing of the model 18 was approximately $1,000 dollars less than the Model 30, but still at the cost of $3,200, it was more than the average house. The Cream and Brown paint colors were an additional $50 option, folding windshield at $70, and Cape Top at $135. The '18' designates a French calibration of horsepower that equates to 30 horsepower. The engine is a 267.5 cubic-inch T-head four-cylinder. 1909 production was 802 units. The Model 18 was produced through 1911.

Packard advertising slogan was 'Ask the Man who Owns One.'
