1933 Packard Model 1004
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

HISTORY OF THE 1933 PACKARD 1004 SUPER EIGHT
For Packard’s 10th series of Automobiles, the company introduced several innovations with the 8 cylinder models. The Packard Standard Eight was now just the Packard Eight and the Deluxe Eight models begun being referred to as the Super Eight. The Super Eight in particular saw several improvements including a strengthened chassis with a new manifold design and a new Stromberg carburetor that raised power output to 145 horsepower. Vacuum assisted brakes were featured and gave the driver the option to adjust the level of braking to assist their needs. The wheelbase of the Deluxe models was dropped in favor of a 135” wheelbase chassis. Individuals seeking a more stately appearance opted for the 142” wheelbase which was 5 inches shorter than the 1932 “Deluxe” models. With 13 different factory body styles available, individual bodied production numbers were limited. Of the 1,327 Super Eight models built for 1933, only 788 were assembled on the 142” chassis. Body no. 650 was the Super Eight Touring, a stylish and functional Touring car with rear fold away jump seats that allowed seating for either 5 or 7 passengers. With a restyled exterior and a new windshield treatment, the Touring was especially stunning. It is no wonder why examples are highly coveted among collectors today.
