A four speed non-synchromesh transmission with "short throw" from 3rd to 4th.

Perhaps I'm mistaken (not unusual), but I believe all 1930 Packards had the four-speed transmission.

In regard to the steering wheel, The 1931 wheel is indeed much nicer than the 1930. Most people are unaware of this subtle "modification" to our Speedster, but it sure looks better, and it's much more desirable to hold onto as well.
