1954 Packard Clipper
1954 Packard Clipper, the 1% sedan
This car was almost a Cadillac, a runner up that cost more and performed less. However, it sure looks stylish driving around Palm Springs central doesn’t it?
“The Packard Clipper was initially a single model of the Packard Motor Car Company introduced in April, 1941, midyear, much as was the 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang and other new departures. It was manufactured between 1942 and 1947, from the six and junior eight, to the Super-8, where it cost more than and outperformed corresponding Cadillacs. The Clipper name alone was reintroduced in 1953 for the Company's bottom line through 1956, in which final year it was considered a stand alone make, and not a model of Packard.”
My chase car was a Cadillac SUV.
