1941 Packard Clipper
The 1941 Packard Clipper was one of the last cars built by Packard before it shifted to military production for the war effort. Built on a 120 chassis, the car featured a smoothly curved modern body, drawn by noted designer Howard 'Dutch' Darrin. His design molded body and fenders into a dramatic flowing shape that contrasted sharply wîth the traditional design themes.
After the war, Packard resurrected this design for the 1946 and 1947 model years.
