I didn't even know if existed in the first place.

If you like your Packards supercharged, here's a couple of photos not seen all that often.

(1) A twin supercharged Twelve (in a later body) done as the story goes for his own use by a mechanic at Packard-Albany.

(2) Photo of a factory-experimental supercharger installed on a 6th series big Eight.

Here is this boat in Houston with the supercharged Packard engine.
