I think the interior colors were red, blue, tan, and green. I've never seen a green one. The contrasting piping effect gets muted in the tan.

The first photo in the thread shows the "open mouth" 22nd series design, in the second version where the end connectors are chrome instead of painted. The center section between the bumper guards is open.

I think it's interesting how the design evolved to a heavier and heavier look. I think the original two horizontal , body color connector look is the cleanest and ties in best with the side moldings.

"Classic" and "Full Classic" have a narrow meaning - not trying to reopen that can of worms, but you can check the Classic Car Club of America. Cars are older, mostly pre-war.

I think 41 120 wheels are 15 x 5, yes? Not sure about Clipper wheels but 22nd-23rd are 15 x 5.5."

have you looked to see if a build slip survives? Feel on top of the glove box compartment and on the gas filler tube.

The Junior cars didn't ruin Packard, they saved it. All the other independent luxury car makers died in the Depression. Cadillac and Lincoln brought out LaSalle and Zephyr, and received corporate welfare. Imperial survived as a brand, but wasn't much more than a New Yorkerand also had corporate support.I do agree that the name and probably the grille of the Six should have been different.

true on other colors being available and ordered - but this car's color, interior, and hubcaps are not 47 Custom Eight.

The Packard Plant is about 40 acres, so would make a pretty large urban garden or park. I'd think that ground contamination would have to be checked first, as in any industrial site of that age. But it's not in a very desireable neighborhood.

For a commercial venture, it's not far from I-94.

But for any of these , the value is less than that of vacant land - the buildings are mostly badly deteriorated.
