GENERAL INFORMATION:

The Clipper have a grille with full-width curved center bar; new hood ornaments; wraparound backlights on all cars; and noticeable trim revisions. The Clipper Special was most like the old styles as plain, rounded rear fenders were retained. A straight chrome molding with barbed tip sat high on the front fenders and doors. A second straight molding was set lower on the rear tenders and back door of the touring sedan. Jet plane hood ornaments and plain cloth interiors appeared. The basic Packard equipment assortment included twin horns; twin visors and wipers; horn ring; front and back bumper guards; jack and tools. The Clipper Special added turn signals, glove box light and clock to the list. The Clipper Deluxe have the front and rear body side moldings linked via a staggered chrome plate. It was actually part of one long, continuous arrangement of chrome strips. The Deluxe had all the same features found on Clipper Specials plus chrome wheel trim rings and fin-shaped rear fender top chrome blades.
