Default '41 Henney Packard

Found this at a Packard swap meet and show last Friday. It looks like a '41 Packard seven passenger sedan, which would be interesting as that is. Well, it turns out it's actually a '41 Henney Packard sedan ambulance. It has Henney logos and the removable post, split/removable front seat, and it even has holes in the dash where the sign mounts were on the passenger side windshield.

Rare as it is, the interesting thing is that this is a Packard One Sixty, the top of the line luxury model. Most of these would have been built on the One Twenty, which would have been large and powerful enough for use as a sedan ambulance. One of the Packard folks wondered that one could have bought two One Twentys for the price of a One Sixty back in the day. Why?

The current owners live in Maryland and have done a top-notch restoration job. They bought it in rough shape, from someone who bought it from some kids using it for a band hauler in Xenia, OH. Anyone from Ohio know any prior history?

Yes, both George and I have talked to the current owner about the PCS, hopefully we will see him at a meet soon!
