It was Jacob Henney who started his carriage making factory in 1854. Over the next few decades his son turned his company into one of the finest making hearse, ambulance & limousine maker by bringing innovation into his business.
Over the years their relationship with Packard became so strong that Henney mostly used Packard made cars for their hearses and ambulances. Further fillip was added when Henney was approached by the then government to custom-built 22 ambulances to the US Veterans Bureau.
This particular ambulance model had a 327 cm3 Flathead Straight-8 engine with a power output of 190 hp. Inside the car, was a Packard patented Ultramatic automatic transmission having a 2-speed reverse epicyclic gear train with torque convertor lock-up. Then there was a well laid-out stretcher, oxygen tanks, emergency medical equipment kit, folding seats for accompanying health-worker. On the outside there was a powerful beacon attached in the front, to spot people in the night
Nearly 700 of these Packard Henney Ambulance models were built during three years.
