Trying to identify a high-end coupe

Hi,
I'm trying to identify the year and model of that car, parked in Place de la Concorde, Paris, in 1947. I tend to think it's a 1935-36-ish Twelve, but my knowledge is close to zero in pre-war cars... It looks it is a high-end coupe, given its size. Headlights are obviously not factory, and the lack of a hood ornament is not surprising, as they were banned in France.

Yes, a senior Packard. Front bumper is a Twelve bumper. Hard for me to judge the degree of slope of the radiator which is one visual difference between 1935 and 1936 seniors but I believe it's 1935.

headlights look like Marchal, not uncommon for a sale in France

Hi

Yes, '35 Twelve five passenger coupe, a 1207, Body Style 837. Chrome radiator shell and Marchal headlights. Thanks for posting, it must have been well hidden during the war.
