United States | Auburn, Indiana




Offered here is a 1947 Packard Clipper Custom Limousine built by Henney Body Company on November 15, 1946. This unique, one-of-a-kind, 1947 limo was reportedly built for the Chairman of the Briggs Company.

The interior does not have a glass divider, however it does feature a closed rear quarters for rear passenger privacy. The rear passenger compartment is very large and includes jump sears for additional guests and a radio is built into the right armrest area.

The powerful Packard straight eight-cylinder engine is coupled with a smooth-shifting manual transmission. It is riding on wide whitewall tires with chrome hubcaps and bumper-mounted foglamps. The Packard’s panels appear to be very straight; new paint was applied several years ago, but still is in show-quality condition. The broadcloth upholstery and straight hair Wilton carpet are in superb condition with no apparent repairs needed.

This uncommon and beautiful Packard would be welcome at any CCCA Tour or as a Full Classic on the show field. This massive, 21-foot car has smooth, continuous lines that contribute to its timeless beauty.
