Did Packard make a factory Sport Phaeton (dual cowl) in 1936 on the Eight Chassis? I was under the imporession that in 35/36 the Sport Phaeton was only available on the Super Eight and 12 longer wheel base chassis.

According to Turnquist and other sources, there was no factory bodied sport phaeton in the 14th series Eight car line.

Dave,
Thank you for the confirmation. A very nice looking 1936 Sport Phaeton on the Eight chassis is currently for sale, I was certain the Sport Phaetons were only available in Super Eight and Twelve.
