On a 400 acre site a few miles from the factory, Packard has built the most
unique proving ground in tb8 world of industry. Besides containing a 2fc mile
long, 50 foot wide, banked turn, oblong race track, this proving ground contains
a perfect airplane landing field.
-Equipment on this experimental speedway consists of everything from a towing
dynamometer to a testing laboratory. Proving Packard cars built from 29 years
of recorded experience calls for a different type of track and accessories than
|if. Packard were building cars in a wide range of price classifications.
As of today* a certain number of finished Packard cars are taken from the assembly
line each month and placed in test at our proving grounds. These tests run anywhere
from 5000 - to 50,000 miles and are compressed in as few as 20 days. By
working three shifts of men, cars record mileage in excess of a year's average
driving in a comparatively few hours.
|This proving ground permits actual measurements for wear on cylinders, pistons,
bearings, valve springs, transmission, universal joints and rear axles, scientifically
and accurately.
The Packard Proving Ground is a gigantic "crime detector." Through this investment
your prospect is assured of simplicity in design, durability in manufacture
and economy in operation of his Packard purchase.
This picture shows a special Packard Eight phaeton traveling at a speed in excess
of 100 miles an hour.
