In the earlier photos Gerd posted of the same car('37 Senior?), it doesn't appear to have the device fitted behind the windscreen...

Yes Mal, that is correct. These "earlier photos" are photos, which I posted earlier but they were taken later. Hungary was battle zone after the "Bombing of Kassa" in June 1941 but thereafter it took three years until the war came into the Hungarian territory at full tilt. The temporary usage of this special device may reflects the course of the war. The snapshot in question was taken in 1942.
Please find below another images of this very car in 1943. The pictured calm is deceptive. In fact the Packard and its occupants drove through the eye of a hurricane ... but Carl Lutz was someone with gallow humor.

Today a Packard advertisement, published by the Indo-American Automobile Co., Ltd., 90 years ago. "Indo-American Automobile", well, that's a history-charged name!

Packard as much as one pleases. A car in its majestic completion, labelled with the royal coat of arms of Helsinki, the capital of Finland.
