James W

Saturday 13th August 1898

James W. Packard purchased a Winton automobile #12 after visiting the Winton plant in Cleveland, Ohio with his brother. Dissatisfied with the purchase, Packard was prompted to build his own car and establish the Packard Motor Car Company, which would later be acquired by Studebaker. Lagging sales eventually led to the discontinuation of the Packard models in 1958.
