Classic Woodies Gallery
Packard automobiles started production in 1899, merging with Studebaker in the 1950s. The wood bodies were built by Hercules of Evansville, Indiana, who also made bodies for Ford, Chevrolet, Studebaker and Durant from 1925 to 1935.
Although Packard went out of business in 1958, it outlasted many other independent car companies, surviving two World Wars and the Great Depression.
