Coachwork: Henney
 
The second Packard show car to appear in 1953 also featured a special roof, or rather, part of one. The Monte Carlo was based, not on the limited-production Caribbean, but on Packard's popular 2-door hardtop, the Mayfair. Two examples were built by the Henney Motor Company, with Packard being charged the sum of $9,095.36 for each. The Mayfair's roof was cut-off over the front seat, which necessitated the installation of a solid 'B' pillar and much structural bracing. A continental kit was installed and the special interior featured dual fold-down armrests in the rear.

Both cars ended up in the hands of private owners and both are currently owned by Mr. Marano.
