Packard DID utilize a supercharger on a few samples of their brand-new straight-8 engine for the 1954 model year. Why they decided to introduce a new straight-8 just a few months before their new V-8 was due for roll-out is something that still puzzles people. On the sand at Daytona, they managed to get one of these huge supercharged beasts up to 113 mph. However, all Packards were RWD.
And, yes, the Duesenberg SJ models were supercharged. The “regular” J models were normally aspirated.
Cord did utilize FWD, but in its first interation, on the L-29 model, forward traction on an inclined gravel road was so poor that owners had to back up that type of hill in order to eliminate wheel-spin. That problem led Groucho Marx to sell his Cord fairly soon after buying it. The more familiar coffin-nosed Cord 810 had the engine mounted further forward than the L-29 did, thus reducing traction problems.
