1957 Packard Clipper Town Sedan by Brooklin Models

 BRK 171 - 1957 Packard Clipper Town Sedan in Tiara Gold

The 1957 and 1958 Packard lineup of automobiles were based on Studebaker models: restyled, rebadged, and given more luxurious interiors. 

Only one Packard model was available for 1957, the Clipper, and it was a Packard in badging only. Beneath those Packard badges was Studebaker's top-of-the-line President dressed in tailfins, unique trim, a different headlight treatment, a supercharger and an upscale interior, among other things. The Clipper was offered in two body styles--a four-door sedan, dubbed the Town Sedan, and a station wagon, the Country Sedan. For longtime Packard customers, this was badge engineering at its worst: A former world-beating brand, renowned for quality and innovation, reduced to some chrome emblems.
