This is a Clipper, not a Packard Clipper. It was its own make in '56.

A belated comment here re: Packard vs Clipper.

There is controversy over whether or not the 1956 Clippers should be considered a separate make.
At the begining of the model year, Packard appeared to intend to list the Clipper separately and removed the Packard name and reference in the advertising. However, during the course of the year, they changed their mind and began referring to them again as "Packard Clipper". "Packard" nameplates were shipped to Packard/Clipper dealers for installation on all new and unsold 1956 Clippers and were available to the public at no charge for addition to their '56 Clippers.

I my mind, since this decision occurred during the course of the same model year, I regard Packard as retroactively designating all 1956's as "Packard Clippers" and feel they should be listed as such.

The "Panama" name was no longer used in 1956.
That particular line was just the Clipper Super hardtop.
(By contrast, the Custom line still used the "Constellation" name.)
