Between yesterday when it was posted and today, an unrestored and rough 1941 Sports Brougham was sold on Facebook and if the buyer is here, I would love to see more of it. These were among the most beautiful coachbuilt Packards of the era in my opinion and I was very tempted. This one had running boards and side mounts but without those, they are not just beautiful but downright stunning in their clean, flowing style and coupe-like rear.

Absolutely, Don. Great example of the reach that the Junior series had. The LeBaron is 100% Senior.

Great to know one more '41 LeBaron Sport Brougham is being restored. Its the mostly elegantly proportioned 1941 model and a stellar example of how much design potential those bodies had if only Packard had exploited it.

Hope the purchaser will step forward here, let us in on the restoration process.

Just occurred to me yesterday, this the same Sport Brougham that was auctioned in the Columbus, Ohio area, May 18th this year. Where is its location now?

A very good looking car with lots of potential. Also an ambitious project.

Is the design a product of Packards efforts to hold off the nibbles that Cadillac's 60 Special were taking from what had been Packard's market?

I often wonder if any progress has been made on this one.

I suspect it might be the same car but if so it seems to have acquired some grey primer. I canít see too much in common other than the same running board damage and the hole for a spotlight which both appear to have.

Is that what that hole is for, Don?? I have exactly the same hole in my car (size and placement-wise) and when I look at spotlights online, it looks like the through-hole size would have to be significantly bigger. I thought maybe it was for an external radio antenna or something??? Chris.

The one on the a-pillar is for a spotlight. The spotlight has only a small shaft going through the pillar that moves the light in the outside pillar-mounted base but there were also spotlights without any inside controls other than a switch although I donít recall seeing any of that type in the accessory book.

I'm quite sure they are different cars, Don. Note roof antenna on one, no hole for a roof antenna on the other. I do have the vehicle number for the one I posted, I'll dig it out and provide it later.

Chris, I believe the radio antenna (non-roof style) was fastened with two insulator posts to the driver's side cowl panel.

These are indeed outstanding cars, I was very fortunate to be closely associated with #41 for a number of years, and there were two others in the area that were often seen at local events.

Dave, I agree that they are not the same car. Too many differences. What I thought was an antenna hole on the roof now appears to be only a mark of some sort.
