Like most American Car Companies, the postwar Packards were basic 1942 models. Vehicle design, styling and engine powertrain were basically carryover styling with minor product change. The standard engine was a straight eight L-head engine displacing 356 cubic inches and 165 Brake HP. This Packard is a two door five passenger Club Sedan with “fast back” rear styling.
The Custom trim level featured distinctive interior trim, rich broadcloth and leather upholstery, special upgraded carpeting and rich imitation wood grain effects on the instrument panel and window door frames. The base vehicle price was $3,140 dollars placing this vehicle in a very expensive price class. The Packard Clipper model series was introduced in 1941 and ended with the 1947 model run.
