Welcome to Packarding! My first Packard was a 1939 1700 so has a certain fondness to me.

For your question, the scorching looks to have been a carburetor fire or something external as I can’t image the head getting hot enough to scorch the paint like that. It may be a good investment to buy an infrared thermometer through Harbor Freight, Amazon or one of the others to verify the temperature, though, before any real damage is done. They are quite inexpensive and easy to use - you just point them at the area to measure..
