This is the left front fender from a 1956 Clipper Super Executive. The Clipper series was made by the Packard Motor Car Company which produced fabulous luxury automobiles. There were very few Executives built. The last Packard was made in 1958 and it was a take off of the Studebaker Hawk series. Taken in Port Angeles, Washington ~ Lynn

    WOW, love that color. And they were super back then…really built, not like the plastic cars today. (Not that I would remember 1958..I didn’t show up until the next decade…heehee) Very nice my friend :)

  • Unfortunately I was around back in those years. I did have a car just like this in my collection. Thanks for commenting, Nancy ~ Lynn

    That’s SUPER alright!! It’s such an unusual color and I don’t think it ever became popular again……….did it?

  • It was popular back in the 50’s but none were quite like Packard’s unique colors. The Packard Caribbean had a three tone paint job. Thanks for commenting, Steph ~ Lynn
