For well-heeled buyers desiring the flair of an open automobile, Packard offered the Model Eight 1001 in Coupe Roadster configuration, such as the example offered here. This was the only open body style offered in the Model 1001 lineup, and, at a price of $2,250, was the model’s most expensive, as well.

The 320 CID, nine main bearing, straight-eight engine now produced 120 hp, up from 111 hp the prior year. This engine powered Packard models weighing nearly 5,000 lbs., but when fitted to the Model 1001 chassis and the relatively lightweight Coupe Roadster body, the result was the best power-to-weight ratio of the lineup – the perfect complement to the sporting, open design.
