WHEN YOU VIEW the new
  One Ten and One-Twenty, you'll find it hard to believe that such fine cars can be priced so low.
And, until this year, it couldn't have been possible to offer you so much car for your money.
For these
 s are the first new models to benefit from Packard's recently-completed 4-year expansion plan. In its entirety, this tremendous plan involved the expenditure of millions for new plant expansion, new factory arrangement, new production equipment... all so that manufacturing costs, could be reduced and the savings passed along to you.
As a result of this long-range program, you can now buy a Packard - a fine car 100% worthy of the Packard nameplate - for a lower price than ever before.
1940 Packard offers you so much more of everything you want in a motor car that you'll never be quite satisfied until you own one.

Over all the cars on 1940's highways – this phenomenal new Packard One-Sixty makes you monarch!
It's the new master of America's highways! It earns this title in agile performance, roadability and handling ease.
It has the most powerful 8-cylinder engine that any 1940 American passenger car can boast - 160 horsepower! More power per pound of car weight than any other car you can mention.
Take one look at its long, low racy beauty, and the first word that comes to your mind is – fast! And this car is fast! And we don't believe any car has as easy a cruising speed. In fact – experienced owners advise new owners to keep an eye on their speedometers.
Yet it gives you a gas economy that is almost nip-and-tuck with that of cars weighing hundreds of pounds less, and with motors of 20 to 25 less horsepower!
But its economy features don't stop there. Thanks to Packard design and Packard precision manufacturing, this car seldom sees the inside of a repair shop.
And it's as gentle as your pet dog. Its handling ease will amaze you-and its ride is an eye-widening experience in comfort.
Economy and handling ease like this might lead you to think it's a midget, but again you'll be happily surprised. Get in, stretch out, and relax-there's room to spare.
One more bit of astonishment – this great car costs even less than last year's Packard Super-8!
And now-ask your Packard dealer to bring this car to your door. Take the wheel, take to the realm of the broad highway, settle back in the ruler's seat-and see how it feels to be a king!
Available in eight body styles and three different wheelbase lengths. Long, lithe, handsomely appointed, this car is a joy to look at as well as a dream to drive.
