Pics -- Packard Request and other Packard Dream Cars
Due to a steady flow of requests to bring out a modern interpretation of its classic pre-war grille, Packard developed the Request prototype and debuted it at the 1955 Chicago Auto Show. Based on the 1955 Packard 400 two-door hardtop, the front design on the Request dream car did characterize the traditional grille, and the car also wore custom-built split bumpers and modified front sheet metal. Creative Industries constructed the one-of-a-kind Request for Packard, and the handsome 2-tone exterior was painted in pearlescent white, with copper-colored top and side accent strips.

I had been searching for a Minimarque Packard Request for several years, and one of our friendly model dealers was finally able to find one for me.

The Request was the last Packard dream car that I needed to have a complete set:
