1947 Packard Super Clipper Sedan
When automobile production began after World War II, Packard decided to only produce the Clipper Series and abandon the other model lines. For 1946 Packard produced the Clipper Six 2100 and 2103, Super Clipper 2103, and the Custom Super Clipper 2106. The Super Eight and Custom convertibles were added in 1947. In 1949 Packard introduced the 23rd Series Eight and Deluxe Eight.
The Clippers were unique and innovative for their time. They featured an alarm on the gas tank that would whistled as the fuel was pumped, stopping only when the tank was full. The running boards and door hinges were concealed adding to the smooth appearance of the body. The Clipper Series were also very wide. This not only gave passengers extra interior room, but it gave the vehicle stability at speed around the corners. The width was a foot wider than it was tall making it the widest vehicle in production at the time.
This beautiful eighty nine thousand mile luxury Packard Super Clipper is something to behold. This is the prettiest blue you have ever seen, and the dark blue cloth interior with white accents really tops it all off. Speaking of luxury, when you sit in the interior of this car you almost think you're in your living room. Rich wood grain dash and window moldings and chrome everywhere. Under the hood you find a straight eight-cylinder engine that has 356ci and 165hp that can move you down the highway with the best cars out there. This car will surely make you the envy of all your car friends.
