The Nuclear Packard

While the car you see above looks like it belongs on the scrap heap, it has just been rescued to soon become the pride of the National Atomic Museum. The car,a stretched 1941 Packard Clipper was used as part of the Mmanhattan Project to ferry the scientist that developed the A-Bomb from the testing range around New Mexico. The Museum is looking for donations to restore this car and a 1942 Plymouth back to life, if you can help follow a link to their site below or check out the gallery over on autoblog. http://www.atomicmuseum.org/atomiccars.cfm http://www.autoblog.com/2009/02/14/manhattan-projects-los-alamos-limo-found-restoration-planned/

One thought on “The Nuclear Packard

  1. My family went through the war with a Packard 160 coupe. I know these cars well. Your Packard is post-war. Do a search on the web and compare your grill with the authentic 1941 Packard grills. HUGE difference.
