1939 Packard Six Convertible
The Packard Six was introduced in September 1936 as a 1937 model. The success of the Packard One-Twenty, a lower-priced eight added to the product line in 1935, convinced Packard management that a range of models in the mid-priced market was essential to survival in the Great Depression. The One-Twenty had sold at three-and-a-half times the volume of “senior” Packard's, the Eights, Super Eights and Twelves, in its introductory year. The Six displaced the One-Twenty as the most popular Packard by 1938, and in 1939 outsold all other Packard's combined. New features that were year were a column-mounted “Handi-shift,” replacing the floor-mounted gear lever, and heavier rear springs
