GENERAL INFORMATION:

Clipper emerges as a distinctive second line for Packard in 1955. Custom is the top of the three-tiered line-up, with the most obvious step-up from Super being interior trim. The 55th Junior Series models are a major facelift of the 1951-54 shell, but trunk lid, rear bumper, and taillights are carried-over from previous Series. New back-up lights are now standard on this model and integrated with the taillights. Helmswheel ornaments adorn throughout. Curved door molding creates a natural cove for more dramatic, though optional, two-tone paint scheme. Rear fender skirts are not available, due to unique lower moldings for this model, which extend from rocker panels, over rear wheel openings, and to rear bumper. All-new V8 engine is standard, with upgrade to new Twin Ultramatic automatic or overdrive manual transmission available at extra-cost. All-new Torsion-Level suspension is optional, but was likely factory-installed on all examples of this model. - BH
