ONLY 67k original miles, this 110 special serves as a great invitation into the Packard Family.The Packard One-Ten (also One Ten and 110) was a range of six- cylinder automobiles produced by the Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan during the 1940 and 1941 model years. The One- Ten model designation replaced the Packard Six model name. Packard reintroduced a line of six-cylinder cars in 1937 after a ten- year absence as a response to the economic depression and ongoing recovery cycle in the United States. As an independent automaker, Packard could not look to other internal divisions to support its base of luxury models, so the inclusion of the Six, and the later 110 models, was necessary to aid in supporting the firm's bottom line until better times returned. The Six couldn't have come at a better time for the automaker, just prior to the nation's 1938 economic depression. By offering the less expensive Packard, the company was able to attract buyers who would otherwise be unable to purchase the more expensive Packard models. Built on a shorter wheelbase than the senior Packards, the One-Ten was introduced in August 1939. The One-Ten was available in a broad range of Body styles, including both two and four-door sedans, station wagon and convertible. Total output for the 1940 model year was 62,300 units. Following its successful first year, the 1941 One-Ten model range was expanded, and a second trim level, the Deluxe was added.
