Packard was a United States based brand of automobile originally known as the Ohio Automobile Co.
when its founders built their first car in 1899. It became the Packard Motor Car Company in 1903.
Originally based in the Packards' hometown of Warren, Ohio, the factory was moved to Detroit, Michigan in 1903,
after a majority of stock was purchased by a Detroit-based group of investors led by Henry Bourne Joy
and his brother-in-law, Truman Handy Newberry.
When it merged with Studebaker in 1954, Packard was one of the last remaining independent U.S. automakers.
The brand went off the market in 1958 but its cars are still highly sought after by collectors today.
