RHD V8 Packard Roadtest Article Image

Here is a roadtest by a British publication of a right-hand drive V8 Packard. The V8 cars were converted to RHD by Leonard Williams, the London Packard dealer. From 1939 thru 1954 the RHD cars were assembled at Detroit; before that by Packard Canada starting in 1933 I believe.

There are several things interesting about the RHD conversion. Firstly the V8 models were the first to Dave Czirr knowledge where Packard did not do the conversions themselves, either in Detroit or at Packard Canada. Secondly, the omission of the clutch pedal let them move the two pedals and dimmer switch to the right in the conventional arrangement, previously notably in the early to mid-30s, the accelerator was placed between the brake and the clutch due to the confined space.

"Some might get a kick out of this. Even though hang on and trunk units were available and probably much less cost & trouble to install, guess East Grand thought they were not befitting a properly attired Packard so the kit was made available mid 55. Wonder if anyone has info on how much it cost to be done after the fact rather than ordered up front." - Howard
