“The supreme combination of all that is fine in motor cars”
What Packard means by “balance” in a motor car goes far beyond the mechanical balance of parts which assures silent, vibrationless operation. Packard’s clientele takes that for granted.
The balance in which Packard takes pride is that perfect balance of desirable qualities which led one enthusiastic owner to write that his Packard was “the supreme combination of all that is fine in motor cars.”
Packard’s deliberate aim for 27 years has been to develop a car of all-around excellence-not a car famous merely for one outstanding trait but of acknowledged superiority in all. Those who own Packard cars know how well Packard has succeeded.
Whatever you may expect from a motor car the Packard will provide to an unusual degree. Beauty, smartness and distinction recognized and imitated the world around. Speed unsurpassed by any but racing cars. Roominess and comfort which are proverbial. Low operating cost and long life which makes Packard ownership a real economy.
It is the balanced excellence of the Packard which makes it so universally admired and desired.
