This is a hard to find item. The "Packard" emblem that goes on the decklid is easy to find. So far the "Clipper" emblem that also goes on the decklid has been impossible to find.

So are the plastic '57 Clipper Wheel and '58 Packard Emblems for the Trunk Lid/License Light, so if you need a Nameplate, better get to work and make some! :D

So the ones I have on my two 'spare' decklids should be saved, eh?
I'll keep that in mind. ;)

1958 is probably the same but earlier years are different. Based on the small production numbers there just aren't many available.

Let's not forget~ that plastic piece is different between '57 and '58.
And on both years- it's only used on wagons.


But we're not talking about those- we're talking about that 'Clipper' name plate.
A '58 does NOT have one. They were only on '57s.

I have afreind who restored a rare 1920s Laird biplane. Since he's a retired dentist he made his own casting for hard to find items like correct wingtip light houisings and lenes.

Now he's building a correct replica of a Sopwith Pup WWI fighter...complete with a WWI French rotary (the cylinders spin...not a Wankel) engine.

So getting new pieces shouldn't be impossible. Might be pricey to have chromed, but not impossible to get.

I will look in my little box of chromed treasures.

I went out and looked. Found a '58 "Packard" script and one for a Constellation, but no '57 "Clipper" I may well have one - just not in that place.

If that's what you wanna think- go for it.
Folks who pay attention know that I don't need to be urged.
Just ask Carl (for one) if he agrees with me.

To: StudeDave57,-----If You are willing to part company with ANY of that 'rare stuff' (which apparently You ARE willing to do) You automatically go to #1 on the CLASS GUY meter! (I know more people that
won't part with ANYTHING whether they're ever going to use it or not.)

As for your script, I have found some decent ones in junk yards. Have to take your time in taking them off.
As for the plastic emblems.....I sold my "only" 57 probably 5 years ago. Chip has it on his wagon. As for the 58's I have three nos tucked away.
Might be willing to sell one if I knew it was going on a car. The last one I sold went for big dollars on ebay three or four years ago.

The Clipper emblem is hard to find. I looked for 10 years before finding it this year at York, for $20! The insert on my wagon is rare as hen's teeth. The one I got from Joe is the only nice one I have ever seen.
