Hydraulic lifts on closed models?

Has anyone ever run across a 48-50 closed Packard (either a coupe or sedan) that Packard (or a coachbuilder) modified to use their hydraulic power window setup? I know the convertibles came with this feature standard. Wondering if any of the high end clientele saw the power windows on the convertibles and wanted them for their closed car?

According to Robert Neal's book and the parts manual, in addition to the 22-23 convertibles the hydraulic windows and seats were available on 23rd series 2352 Custom and 2372 Deluxe Super 8 sedans. I would expect a few would have wanted the option.

I have seen one Custom and one Deluxe on e-bay over the years with hydraulics--they must not have been very popular. The Henney funeral cars and ambulances did have them, however.

Interesting. Thanks for the replies!

Has anyone ever seen a 40's era vehicle that had electric power windows - not limiting replies to just Packards? wondering what kind of a trick it would be to install such a system. Probably not worth the trouble, but curious.

I know of at least 3 1941 Packard models that have been converted to electric power windows. I believe the motors were Jeep Cherokee and a 12-volt motorcycle battery hidden in the trunk which only requires charging from a trickle charger a couple of times a year to do the job. I'm not aware that any prewar car that had electric power windows as a factory installation.
