The first Packard Clipper was produced

Tuesday 1st April 1941

The first Packard Clipper was produced. The 1941 Packard Clipper was one of the last cars built by Packard before it shifted to military production for the war effort. Built on a 120 chassis, the car featured a smoothly curved modern body, drawn by noted designer Howard ‘Dutch’ Darrin. His design molded body and fenders into a dramatic flowing shape that contrasted sharply with the traditional design themes. After the war, Packard resurrected this design for the 1946 and 1947 model years.
