Pretty similar in styling concept...but the Packard looks like a Lincoln that's packed on a few pounds! So I'll vote for the more svelte Lincoln.

I'm a Packard fan, and my 1/43 collection shows it.  But this Packard just doesn't have the looks that Packard needed.  It was an update of the pre-war body dies when Packard needed something new.  That's what this Lincoln has.  Of course, Lincoln had Mercury to share many of these stampings, and Packard could only have a variety of the same basic body under series names.  Sorry, Packard, but for this choice I have to go with the Lincoln.

I picked the Packard although not as updated as the Lincoln it has a better flow to my eye.

Hands down, the LINCOLN for me!  In comparison the Packard looks bulbous and outdated (to my eyes).

I also voted Lincoln for the same reasons.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Packard for me; I never warmed up to this Lincoln styling at all.

The Packard for me.  Love the nose and the streamlined body.

Packard for me too. That car has strength and personality. The Lincoln, other than the nose, just does not capture me.

Have to go with the majority here the Lincoln just has the more updated styling, noticed the Packard even still has the older spilt windshield!

Lincon’s curved, one piece windshield and that unusual headlight treatment does it .

I wanted to vote Lincoln, but when it comes down to it, the Packard does look a bit more bloated, but it screams class & distinction, even in this form and it is my favorite year in this generation. So going with the Packard.
