Here are the technical specs
---Construction of the Light Eight followed the Packard tradition. It had a heavy frame with X-bracing, 8-inch (203mm) deep side members, and the usual rear-wheel drive. Wheelbase was 127.75 inches (3,245mm). Power came from a 320cuin (5.2L) straight eight engine with a compression ratio of 6:0, delivering 110hp (82kW; 112PS). It had a vacuum-plate clutch and an angle set hypoid differential. Battery and toolboxes were mounted on the fenders. Full instrumentation was used.
The car was distinguished by a grille that had the traditional ox-yoke shape, but also with a then fashionable "shovel" nose. Closed Light Eights had a quarter window layout that was not shared by other Packards.
The Light Eight used the same engine as the Standard Eight, but was lighter - 4,115lb (1,867kg) for the sedan vs. 4,570lb (2,073kg) for the model 901 Standard Eight sedan. It was also a good performer for its day.---
