1947 Packard Clipper Custom Limo

1947 Packard Clipper Custom Limo 1947 Packard Clipper Custom Limo Built by Briggs Body Company on November 15 1946. This 1947 Limo is one of a kind. It was reportedly built for the Chairman of the Briggs Company and is unique. There is no glass divider so that it could be owner driven. However, it does feature closed rear quarters to give privacy to the rear seat occupants. The rear seating area is large and included to jump seats for guests. A radio is also built into the right arm rest area. As you can see, the Packard is extremely straight on every panel. New paint was applied several years ago and is show quality. The broadcloth interior and straight hair Wilton carpet is also in excellent condition needing no repairs at all. The Packard straight eight engine coupled to a manual transmission is a powerful and smooth. A factory overdrive adds to the cruising ease of the Limo. This is an unusual and beautiful Limo that could easily be used as a Wedding car or it would be welcomed at any CCCA Tour, as it is a full Classic on the Show field it is also a hit with spectators. The massive size (19 1/2 feet) and the smooth lines contribute to its beauty. $47,500.
