Re: Can you identify this

That looks like an ashtray cover for a 1935 or 1936 model 120.

Re: Plastic material on door pull- 1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper

About 40 years ago someone was advertising this in the Packards International magazine. It may have been a club project, back when they were making and selling projects.

Re: 1955 or 56 Executive. Need Direction.

Thanks for posting. The Executive was produced only in 1956, starting around March (it replaced the Clipper Custom in the lineup). You can also post your information at www.packardinfo.com.

Re: How many 56 Executive 2 doors left?

There were 1,031 1956 Executive 2-door hardtops built. I have been collecting information on them, and all 1955-56 V-8s, since 1982, and I record 13 as listed in excellent condition, 12 as very good, 18 as good, 14 as fair and 10 as poor. 8 are confirmed as being scrapped.

A few years ago there was a lady who was a higher-up in the Arte Express business (general manager or some such). She was a guest speaker at a PAC National Meet banquet, in which she told about the pro...
