Packard entered The Great Depression head on, offering even more luxurious and expensive cars than they had done prior to the close of 1929. In 1932, They introduced their Twin Six which kept this name for a year before becoming the Packard Twelve. The Packard Twelve was their flagship vehicle. Its twelve cylinder engine was powerful and capable of gracefully carrying the elegant coachwork which carried the passengers. To appeal to the segment below this, Packard offered a medium-priced car called the Light Eight. It was produced for only one year, 1932. The selling price ranged from $1795 to $1940. Power was from the L-head, inline-eight, iron block, aluminum crankcase, rated at 319 cubic-inches, generating 110 horsepower. The car sat atop a 195 inch wheelbase.

In comparison to other marque's at this time, Packard had a strong cash position. Large companies such as Cadillac were able to pass through this rough time in history with the support of the GM brand. Lincoln had the luxury on relying on the Ford brand. Other companies in Packard's position, such as Ruxton, Marmon, Franklin, Pierce-Arrow, Duesenberg and Stutz were not as lucky, and were forced to cease production by 1938.

Packard kept its costs down by offering a single production line with inter-changeability between these models. Instead of introducing new models ever year, they persisted for many years. Another tactic was offering low-cost vehicles. Their Packard 120, introduced in 1935, was the companies first vehicle to be offered for sale for less than one-thousand dollars.

Packard's eight-cylinder, 320 cubic-inch engine produced 120 horsepower. Standard features on the Eight Series included automatic Bijur chassis lubrication system, fender lamps, dual trumpet horns mounted under the headlights, and a fully synchromesh three-speed quick shift transmission. Available options included: front and/or rear bumpers, Dual sidemount spare tires, sidemount covers, clock and cigar lighter.

This 1932 Packard 904 Convertible Victoria has coachwork by Dietrich. It sits atop a 148-inch wheelbase and has a 'V'-shaped windshield. There are two doors, a rear storage trunk, and a covered, side-mounted spare tire.
