The Custom Super Clipper Sedan is one of only a handful of post-war Packard's accepted by the Classic Car Club of America as a Full Classic and with one look at the exceptional build quality and stunning simulated woodgrain on the interior it is easy to understand why.

HISTORY OF THE PACKARD SUPER CLIPPER EIGHT TOURING SEDAN
For 1947 Packard continued to push design into the true postwar phase, facing heavy competition from other marques such as Studebaker and Kaiser-Frazer. The 21st series Packard nomenclature continued through 1946 and featured new grille characteristics that would influence future designs. The new models were a perfect combination of style and sophistication that continued to showcase Packard as one of America's most premiere manufacturers. Packard's most expensive 6-passenger offering was the Custom Super Clipper Eight Touring Sedan which cost more than $3,400 when it was new. Only 5,690 Custom Super Clipper Eight Sedans were built for 1947 making their collector appeal today very high, especially considering the model's Full Classic notoriety from the Classic Car Club of America.
