Packard redesigned its entire line around the Clipper, even extending itto its top-of-the-line seven-passenger sedan and limousine.
These models were built on an extended 148-inch wheelbase chassis by theHenney Motor Company, of Freeport, Illinois, Packard's long-servingbuilder of ambulances and limousines.
Henney's reputation for craftsmanship was legendary, and these cars,essentially the first modern "stretch" limousines, were built with thesame care and quality as any coachbuilt automobile, continuing thepre-war tradition begun by Rollston, LeBaron, and others.
They were beautifully finished with the finest materials, includingbeautiful broadcloth upholstery, Mosstred carpeting, and Art Modernewood-grain and Bakelite trim.

NOTE: Production of the seven-passenger models was extraordinarily low,and survivors are prized by collectors, not least because they are amongthe final Packards recognized as Full Classics by the Classic Car Clubof America

History of the 1947 Packard Clipper

Packard turned from building top-tier luxury cars prior to WWII toRolls-Royce Merlin aircraft engines during the war, but picked up in1946 with the Clipper series they had introduced in 1941.
The returning 1946 Packard Clippers were almost identical to the prewarcars, being semi-streamlined two- and four-door sedans with fade-awayfenders.
The grille remained tall and narrow, only now with fewer and thicker bars.

The Clipper could be ordered with a 245-cid straight-six engine thatproduced 105 hp, a 125-hp straight-eight engine that displaced 282 cid,or a 356-cid, 165-hp L-head eight.
The latter engine was reserved for the luxury Super and Custom Super lines.
The base Clipper rode on a 120-inch wheelbase, while the Super and Custom Super Clippers rode a 127-inch wheelbase.
The Custom Super also came as a seven-passenger sedan and as a limo,both of which rode on 148-inch long wheelbases, which was one of thelongest in the domestic industry.
Prices ran from $1,700 for a six-cylinder car to $2,900 for a Custom Super Clipper sedan.
The LWB versions were more than $1,000 above that price, still.

The Clipper is an interesting line to follow, with some of the 1946 and 1947 cars at the very top of Packard quality.
Because of low production numbers once they are found they areworthwhile additions to any collector's garage and sky rocketing invalue!!!
