If I could have any American car from the 1950s, it would be the 300B. The Packard is marvelous, but it loses for me.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Beautiful Packard, but the Chrysler takes the cake!

I like the Chrysler 300B, but head to head with the beautiful PACKARD, it loses out.  I've always felt that the THREE most perfectly styled cars for the Fifties were the '56 Packard, '56 Cadillac, and '56 Lincoln.  Every other car that year is behind them.

While I like the Chrysler, nothing tops the Packard.

Tough one for me as they represent two different high end lifestyles - one young & active and one old money and established.  That Packard is gorgeous.

The '56 Chrysler looks both graceful and muscular but the Packard just looks strange.

I have been pondering this for several hours now, I want to say Packard because it’s a Packard and is a beauty. But that 300 is OMG gorgeous. I have to go with the 300.
