1939→1940 Packard One Twenty Model 1901
In 1941 the One Twenty line was reduced to just eight body styles which included the Business Coupe, Club Coupe, 2-Door Touring Sedan, 4-Door Touring Sedan, Convertible Coupe, Convertible Sedan, Station Wagon and Deluxe Station Wagon.
These models benefited from a 19th-series redesign that full integrated the front headlights into the fenders. Accent lines also rode behind the tires on the fenders.
The hood featured the One Twenty script for the first time and the hood louvres were reduced substantially and doubled as hood releases.
