Packard 160 was part of a model designation by the Packard Motor Car Company from 1940 until 1942, referring to its engine's horsepower. Complete designation in factory preferred spelling is Packard Super Eight One-Sixty. Some 1942 models got Clipper styling and were similarly called "Packard Clipper Super Eight One-Sixty". While the designation "Super Eight" was used earlier and later, "160" or "One Sixty" always was part of the designation, and never stood alone.

I'm late to the party on this.

Script says 160. !60s have a white medallion on the hood spear and painted hubcaps. This car has the red medallion and the cloisonné hubcaps which are 180 attire. the 180 hubcaps could have been possibly been put on the car when new but I'm dubious about the hood medallions.
