The second year for the Clipper, and the first year for the 2-Door Club Sedan body style.



 

 

 

 
For 1942 – Clipper styling throughout all 4 of the new Packard lines!
And that means more good news! For it makes Clippers available at substantially lower prices than the mid-season sensation of 1941. and this in the face of higher labour and material costs ... increased taxes ... and generally rising prices in the industry!
Even the 1942 Clipper 8 – with the same power, comfort and roominess as the '41 Clipper – is actually lower priced!
Add to this price picture all the dollars-and-cents advantages of Clipper functional styling and you have the No. 1 sales story of the year. For Clipper styling pays dividends the public has proved it wants ... improvements in comfort – roominess – economy – safety.
Pricing and styling are but two examples of how the Packard program is planned for the “long haul.” The
 s are built to last – to win friends – to create and maintain owner-loyality.

LOOKING AHEAD? YOU'LL LOOK at this rakish
  Clipper with kindling eyes! And you'll think, "More beautiful - sure! But what's beauty got to do with ride?"
Just this: The Clipper is exceptionally low-slung for greater beauty. But this same daring design also permits a better type of suspension. which smothers jolts ... bounce ... sidesway. It delivers, naturally, the smoothest ride you've ever enjoyed. Scientific shock-reCording meters show that the Clipper rides 29% smoother!
Another advantage of this advanced streamlining: it enables the Clipper to cut through the wind with far less drag - and to save you gas. Example: Proving Ground test show that the Clipper uses 12% to 18% less gasoline than last year's economy champion Packard! And new Clipper styling pays practical dividends in a dozen more ways!
But, perhaps even more important now is long life. The 1942 Clipper is a wise choice for this year's new car buyer. It's built for the "long haul" ... with nothing skimped. So, for extra miles and extra years, head for the nearest Packard dealers and ... Skipper a Clipper!
