Two Packard Mayfairs arrived at the Henney Motor Company factory in Freeport, Illinois, US for conversion into Monte Carlo show cars, with Packard being charged $9,095.36 apiece for the completed cars. The Mayfair’s roof was cut-off over the front seat, which necessitated the installation of much structural bracing. A continental kit was installed and the special interior featured dual fold-down armrests in the rear. Once completed, the two Monte Carlos, (one painted red and white and the other two-tone blue) were sent out on the car show circuit and on a tour of various Packard dealerships.
