GENERAL INFORMATION:

Wheelbases remained the same for the larger Packards this year, but a four-speed transmission was new and a 4.69:1 rear axle ratio was available. The carburetor was a Detroit updraft, and twin fan belts were fitted. A vacuum booster pump was added mid-year. All windows were now Non-shatter laminated glass, there was a glove compartment on each side of the dashboard, and both the driver's seat and the steering wheel were adjustable. Parking lamps were now fender-mounted, and headlamps changed from their former parabolic look for one resembling half a cantalope. Dual mounted spares were standard on the 745, an option on the 740. Fifteen designs were offered in the Individual Custom line: six from LeBaron, five from Brewster, and two each from Rollston and Dietrich.
