1948 saw the finalization of Packards post-war styling. This new look was highlighted by a smooth headlight to tail light treatment on the side panels with only the beltline ridge appearing to separate what could be considered the fender line. This free-flow styling as Packard called it, gave the new cars a striking, modern appearance. The front bumper was integrated into the grille and the well-appointed interiors featured large, comfortable seats while offering generous amounts of hood and leg room. It is no wonder why Packards of this generation were loved by the public. The New York Fashion Academy awarded Packard their Fashion Car of the Year award for 1948. Totally new for 1948 was model number 2201 the Standard Eight Station Sedan. In the 1948 brochure, Packard declared the Station Sedan as featuring the all-occasion beauty and comfort of a sedan, all the traditional utility of a station wagon along with new strength, streamlining, and proud distinction. This four door wagon offered comfortable seating for six and was only offered for three years. Only 3,864 Station Sedans were assembled until 1950, making the woody wagon one of the most sought after Post-War Packard models.
