1953 Packard Clipper


1953 Packard Clipper

When the Packard Clipper returned in 1953 after a five year absence, it replaced the entry-level 200, and joined the Cavalier, Mayfair, Caribbean, and Patrician. The Clipper line was divided into standard and Deluxe trims, with the former carrying a 288-cid, 150-hp straight-eight, and the latter being equipped with a 160-hp, 327-cid eight-cylinder engine. The Deluxe also carried more upscale trim and convenience features. A two-door club sedan and a four-door sedan were available as either standard or Deluxe models, while a Sportster coupe could be ordered to standard spec. Prices ranged from $2,500 to $2,800, and more than 60,000 were built.
