1941 Packard Clipper.

The Packard Clipper was an American automobile first announced in 1941 by the Packard Motor Car Company, a leading manufacturer of luxury cars since the early 20th Century. By February 1942 some 16,000 '41 Clippers had been produced. When the United States entered WW2, Packard switched production to the war effort producing Packard Merlin aero engines, a licensed copy of one of the best engines of its time, the Rolls-Royce Merlin.

A significant number of Packard Clippers were bought by the U.S. Army and used both at home and in numerous theatres of military operations overseas as personal transport for senior officers. At least two Packard Clippers became particularly famous when they were used by General Dwight D. Eisenhower and General Douglas MacArthur, two of the country's best known military leaders.
Restyled Packard Clippers were produced after the end of WW2 but in much smaller quantities.

1:35 scale plastic model kit from Roden, requires paint and glue.
