1947 PACKARD Custom Super Clipper Limousine by CMF

With the 1942 senior body stamping dies lost/abandoned/ sold/scrapped during World War II, Packard used only the Clipper body dies for their post war production. This limousine, with or without window division passenger compartment, was made for Packard by the Henney Company of Freeport, IL. In the post war years, the Henney Company constructed over 3,000 limousine bodies for Packard until Henney stopped production in 1954.

I am quite impressed by the care with which CMF assembled this model. Better known for their 1:18 products, this Chinese firm has produced a couple of fine Packards. But being rather complex in detailing and made of resin, this model needs careful handling. I especially like the two-tone paint and have seen photos of the 1:1 with similar colors and separation. It's a good model.
