    I really love that you're posting these, Chris.

    Did these come off the wall next to the office window in the showroom?

      Not exactly. These were all stapled to a really old board that was just kind of tucked away in a corner. I got a chance to take them out, so I got them, otherwise they would have been left for trash. There is still a whole wall of them left at SASCO.[xx(] Ill just keep posting them until I run out. (Btw: this was the only Packard on this board)

        Chris, that's a 1953 Packard, not a 1951.

        1953 and 1954 had the squared-off upper windshield corners, unlike the rounded-off corners of the smaller 1951 and 1952 windshield. And a 1954 would have had a continuous-length side molding, not the "fender and door" molding on the subject car.

        So it's a 1953, and a Clipper. [8D]BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

              Dean: Go here:

              http://www.packardclub.org/

              Click on Showroom / Automobiles, then on 1956 when the showroom page opens.

              You'll see many 1956 4-doors and you can try to pick out which model your friends want to sell. It will be one of the following 5 models, which are all the 4-door sedans marketed by Packard for the 1956 model year:

              Clipper DeLuxe 4-door
              Clipper Super 4-door
              Clipper Custom 4-door


              Packard Executive 4-door

              Packard Patrician 4-door
