Certainly seems like going to a lot of trouble and massive expense to convert an old car that would drive and function just as it was built with a proper restoration and maintenance. I suppose its done to impress others...and demonstrate how well-off one is...

Hi

Definitely not a Packard Six, nothing matches. not the five bolt wheels with front wheel brake, not the flat, uncrowned fender or the parabolic headlight shells. Two door phaetons had almost no popularity in the U.S.

You might try posting this photo on the AACA Form Photos Section "What is it?" to reach a wider audience of knowledgeable old car folks to get a positive identification.

DIY Garage Inc:

Its your car to do with as you see fit, just a proviso before you do: you'd better plan on keeping the car a very long, long time. There are already several such early '50's Packard convertibles that have had another make newer powertrain installed that remain advertised for sale for years on end with no takers. The reality is, Packard people only want Packards with a Packard engines. Good luck with your '51 Convertible.

"What was the difference between a standard clipper and a super clipper?"

The 1946-'47 21st Series Clipper line comprised four subseries as follows:
The 'Junior' series built on the 120" wheelbase.
Clipper Six, 2100, 245 ci six.
Clipper Standard, 2101 and Deluxe, 2111, 282 ci eights.

The 'Senior' series built on the 127" wheelbase.
Super Clipper, 2103, 356 ci eight
Custom Super Clipper, 2106, 356 ci eight.

Sedan body shells were shared across all four series, the 'Senior' series have substantially longer front fenders and hood to accommodate the larger straight eight.

Hope this imparts perspective to what the Super Clipper was. In the marketplace, it was the main Packard competition versus the Cadillac Series 62.

Tinman,

Thanks for posting the photo. It could be a good project start if it turns out to be a solid car, or at least a good parts car. The small hubcaps and lack of grille 'whisker' makes me wonder if it is a six although listed as an eight.
Auction companies get a lot of details wrong when it comes to old cars.

Very good likelihood this Packard will sell for a scrap value price. Large auctions with many other make cars in better condition usually set up the situation for the independent make cars to go dirt cheap. Go get it if you can.
