Beautiful Automobile ! But why a spark plug on the carburetor ? I have seen it before and cannot explain it . Thank you .

A "fueliser" carb. Preheats the fuel before it reaches the combustion chamber because of the lower/poor fuel quality back in the day. 


Just looked at 5 different '20's 6 cyl Packards this morning, all of which were fueliser equipped! See pic below of one of the carbs.
