Yes, I believe that the upper side trim is from a later model (maybe 1951-1952) but the hood ornament looks correct. There were several different ornaments and I believe that the cormorant was optional on any that did not have it as standard equipment.

The ornament is actually a pelican from the Packard heraldry but more often referred to as another seabird, the cormorant. As I only ever owned one Packard in this era and it was a hearse so I cannot advise on the model of this one without knowing the vehicle number.
