American Factory Mascots

Manufacturer:  Packard Corp. 1899-1958.  1930-31 Goddess Of Speed - Special.

A 1930-31 Packard Deluxe emblem - Goddess Of Speed.  Die-cast zinc and chrome plated.  This version is not often seen, and I think the number 8 represents the number of cylinders.

They were fitted to new vehicles as a publicity item to celebrate the crossing of the Sahara Desert by Prince Eugene of Belgium - who used two Packard Eights in the same year.
