Following its official nonstop run
of 300 nours at the Automobile Club
of America, the Packard "SS" motor
which established' this world's record,
is prolonging its endurance test by
additional mileage on the road
After the completion of the block
test, which more than doubled the
previous world's record of 132 hours,
the motor was sealed tinder the ob
servance of the technical committee of
the Automobile Club, and replaced In
the. chassis from which it had beefi
taken. It was then run at full speed
on the Long Inland speedway.
From the metropolis the car con- |
taining the motor was driven at a
high rate of speed to Philadelphia, ;
where it is now the centre of much j
interest occasioned by its endurance i
rccord. It. still carries the seals which [
show it ha* undergone no adjust- \
During the 300 hours of continuous |
running on th<; test rack, the motor j
made 21.600.m00 revolutions at a con
stant speed of 1,200 per minute. This ;
represents 11.23S miles, a distance'
greater than a nonstop run from New j
York to Shanghai.
