Thought this was interesting
I wonder how much was made from licensing?

Hi L.T.R.D.,

I'm not familiar with these ornaments and am sitting here trying to figure where exactly they'd go?? Would one have had to drill holes in fenders to mount them? (horror of horrors!!)
One poster that I was communicating with made reference to this kind of accessory as 'gee-gaw' and inferred that they cheapened a car's appearance. Were these common back in the day??? Chris.

Packard called them louvres and applied them to some 51-3 rear fenders. They did require holes in the fenders. 3 were standard on higher end but was a dealer option on all models. You see many cars that have had an extra one added. That particular round end style the "flare" copied was from the 51 pot metal offering and in 52 and some 53s they changed to a pointed end and were done with stamped steel.

I debated on adding these to my '51 200 series, but don't know. Not that wild about the look in some ways. I do like the "tailfin" chrome pieces they had above the tail lights though.

I like the look of them. I got some for my 51 before parting out and have them on my 52
