Near the end of Packard as a producer but I'm still impressed with the Packard 400.

Considering Packard's limited resources at that point, that beautiful '56 was a very strong effort!

Lincoln Premiere '56 one of my two favorite  Lincolns, the other being the '70 Mark III. I have no interest in the other 2 other cars.

Lincoln by a lot, but the Packard made it less than a slam dunk.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Caddy, Packard, Lincoln, but tomorrow it might be different. They're all amazing. Another very nicely done comparison, John. Thanks.

I like all three, but the Cadillac was kind of flashy, the Lincoln just doesn't keep my attention, but the Packard, both modern and conservatively understated, is my choice, then and now.  Good comparison photos!

The 56 Lincoln was one of the most beautiful  cars of all times IMO. The Cadillac and Packard are super nice  but they were upped by an iconic design.

I picked the Lincoln; it looks more svelte and modern than the other two. The Packard, well it's a Packard and beautiful, but by 1956, the writing was on the wall. It looks dated. As for the Cadillac, I appreciate the style and the class. The '56, on its own is a sharp car, but compared to the other two. It is very dated and bloated. Even with the refined styling of the '56, one can see its beginning from the early 50s. 

Lincoln, Packard & far behind, Cadillac.

The iconic Cadillac is my pick; followed very closely by Lincoln then Packard.

If asked without pics I would have said Lincoln. Go figure. Today it's the Packard as #1. They went all out and put the others to shame. The Lincoln, quality wise is just an oversized Ford so it's #3. The Cadillac, no way is it an oversized Chevrolet, it's #2 just behind the Packard. Oh, and gents, thanks for the kind words.
