dbo:abstract
  • Der Packard 120 (sprich: One-Twenty) war ein PKW, der von 1935 bis 1937 und von 1939 bis 1941 von der Packard Motor Car Company in Detroit hergestellt wurde. In den Modelljahren 1938 und 1942 hieß der One-Twenty Packard Eight. Der One-Twenty ist ein wichtiges Modell in der Geschichte von Packard, da mit ihm die Firma zum ersten Mal in den Markt der Achtzylinder der oberen Mittelklasse eindrang. Packard-Enthusiasten sehen den One-Twenty und den One-Ten / Six als Wendepunkt, von dem an Packard nicht mehr als wichtigste amerikanische Luxusautomobilmarke galt. Die Einführung des One-Twenty (und später die des One-Ten / Six) war notwendig geworden, um Packard in den letzten Jahren der Weltwirtschaftskrise auf dem Markt zu halten. Der Grund, warum die Firma nicht einen weiteren Markennamen für ihre preisgünstigeren Autos wählte, mag wohl darin liegen, dass im Werk an der Grand Avenue nur eine Fertigungslinie zur Verfügung stand und dass die Einführung einer weiteren Marke hohe Kosten verursacht hätte. Da der One-Twenty als Packard vermarktet wurde, konnte man ihn schnell herausbringen und man verschaffte den Käufern den Stolz, einen Packard zu besitzen. (de)
  • La One-Twenty è una delle vetture più importanti nella storia della Packard. Questa vettura segna l'ingresso della Casa nel mercato delle vetture di fascia media dotate di motore V 8 cilindri. Questa scelta all'epoca fu criticata in quanto la Packard era famosa per le sue vetture di lusso. Erano però gli anni della Grande depressione e per sopravvivere la Casa non aveva altra scelta. I vertici della Packard presero in considerazione anche la possibilità di vendere queste vetture sotto un altro marchio. Alla fine però gli investimenti necessari alla creazione e diffusione di un nuovo marchio erano pari a quelli della creazione di una nuova linea di produzione e pertanto l'ipotesi venne accantonata. Inoltre utilizzando il marchio originale la vettura poteva arrivare velocemente sul mercato, utilizzando la rete vendita già esistente, ed avrebbe offerto la possibilità agli acquirenti di possedere una vera Packard. I fatti daranno ragione alla scelta della società e alla fine saranno 175.027 le unità prodotte. (it)
  • The Packard One-Twenty (also known as the One Twenty and 120) is an automobile produced by the Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan, from 1935 to 1937 and from 1939 through the 1941 model years. The One-Twenty model designation was replaced by the Packard 200. The One-Twenty signified the first time that Packard had entered into the highly competitive mid-priced eight-cylinder car market. Packard enthusiasts view the production of the One-Twenty and the Six/One-Ten models as the start of Packard's losing its hold on the market as the premier American luxury automotive brand. It was a marketing strategy shared with GM's LaSalle, the Chrysler Airstream, and the Lincoln-Zephyr. It was introduced after Rolls-Royce brought to market the Rolls-Royce 20, which was manufactured between 1922 and 1929, and replaced by the Rolls-Royce 20/25 which was built between 1929-1936. The introduction of the One-Twenty (and later the Six/One-Ten models) was a necessary move to keep Packard in business during the final years of the Great Depression, expanding on an earlier approach with the Packard Light Eight. Branding the One-Twenty a Packard afforded buyers the cachet of owning a Packard, a name long regarded as one of America's most prestigious cars. Other reasons the company decided to forgo the development of a companion brand name to sell the less expensive models may have been linked to its single production line capability at its Grand Avenue manufacturing plant or to the expense of launching a new brand of automobile. It also ushered in a novel advertising approach, commissioning an advertising "jingle" called "When Heaven Was at the Corner of Sycamore and Main". (en)
