...If I recall correctly, the 1941 models were the first Packards in many years to feature two tone paint...

John (JW), I didn't notice that but now, when you say it, I think that's true.
Here are two more questions. Could someone confirm or deny, please, that a 180 has the same configuration and marked seven captions as shown in pic # 1 below?

And what is attached to the door in pic #2?

Joe (Tinman), thanks for sharing.

Chris (Packard newbie), I agree, the two-tone color is great.

A couple of times we uploaded images, showing U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt on an inspection tour of the Douglas Aircraft Company's factory.

-> #1
-> #2
-> #3


The following photograph claims to be taken at the same event but somehow FDR managed to change the vehicle.

After presenting Zhukov and Patton on its own in a Packard, the below photograph shows the both alpha leaders united.
Therafter we have the honor to host another member of an European nobel house at PackardInfo. It is nobody less than Alfonso Battenberg, Prince of Asturias, who "died at the age of 31 as a result of a car accident." [Wikipedia]
