. ’41 was a breakthrough year for Packard styling, with the first headlights streamlined into the fender. . Love the bumpergards. Note the excellent radial whitewalls.

Sreamline Moderne Packard tail lights, and rear bumperguard . This is a car that can be toured without hesitation! It’ll keep up with freeway traffic, the brakes are the powerful hydraulic original design drums. The 1941 Packard 160 was ahead of it’s time, the engine and chassis configuration took Packard all the way to 1950 – because it was so well engineered! The driving feel is modern, stable and sure. . The interior is freshly and correctly done, with leather and whipcord combination . All of the woodgraining has been correctly and beautifully redone, it’s spectacular! This view also shows the carefully adapted A/C and Heater box. . And here are the cleverly done A/C and heater controls, done with Packard plastic knobs! And look how nice the plastic is!

Here’s the original hood ornament. . The paint on the car is older, and does show some flaws here and there. There’s a ding on the front fender, as well as what look like crack repairs at the fender edge on both front fenders.
