Vilero, I didn't see extra indicator at the said web page. The original indicator is part of the grille.

I'm sure Vilero is agreeing with you, Rjluna2 ;)
I guess the extra indicator is a later add-on, not making it 'made for I'...
Just wondering: 1941 (and 1942) Clippers had fine mesh in the central grille, this looks more like the 1946 grille. But indeed, those had wrap-around bars on the side grilles... Or was there maybe a low-line version (the Six?) with the new central grille and the old side grilles?

DynaMike, somewhere along in this web, someone told me it was mandatory to have white indicator in Italy in late 1950's. So I figured it was add-on.

Same goes with older vehicles in Australia that required amber indicators both front and rear that was not originally installed.

As I understand it we use the field 'made for XX' when there are visual differeneces to the homemarket verion (except when it's only the LHD/RHD difference) and when these differences are a result of madatory requirements when the car was new, so not when it's an addaptation to later legal requirements. In the 40s in Italy there were no laws about the front indicators yet (these came in 1959).

In a belated answer to the grille bar extention question, the 1946/1947 Packard 6's and standard 8's did not carry this feature.
All other Packards did.
(This is an 8 since it carries the Clipper name on the door. The 6's did not have a nameplate at all.)
