Packard Station Sedan
The Packard Station Sedan wis a pseudo station wagon model produced bi the Packard Motor Car Company o Detroit, Michigan atween 1948 an 1950. Bi offerin the Station Sedan, Packard coud market a vehicle wi station wagon attributes, but athoot the full investment costs associatit wi a full-blown station wagon program development.
The Station Sedan uised a combination o steel framin an body pairts alang wi structural wood panels tae create a "woody" station wagon-like caur. Unlike ither woody wagons o the day, which uised wooden passenger compairtments mountit tae chassis o a particular caur, the Station Sedan uised a steel subframe an steel passenger doors ontae which hard wood panels wur mountit. The ae wooden door on the vehicle wis the rear gate assembly.
Neither a sedan, nor true station wagon, the Station Sedan enjoyed limited success an wis discontinued when the 1951 Packard models wur introduced.
