Minimarque 43 - Packard Darrin Convertible Victoria Coupe de Ville 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Packard Darrin Victoria 1941 Ivory Alternative version MNMGRB105B brown Howard ‘Dutch’ Darrin relocated his coachworks from Paris to California in the late 1930s, one of a huge number of Americans to return home as the European political situation darkened. Once re-established he began work on a number of Packard cars and these were eventually given the blessing of Packard boss Ed Macauley. Most were convertibles but a special ‘Coupe de Ville’ show car was also built, the removable front section of the roof being in Plexiglas. That unique car is represented here and the lines look very good. The paint on our sample has a deep gloss but is a little heavy and has obscured some panel lines. The simple detailing is all neatly fitted though and overall it’s an attractive model of an unusual subject.
