Packard?? in a 1941 Finnish movie.

Those headlights were used on '33, '34 Packards.  I believe that all models used them. 1933 was also the first year for the skirted fender.  John

Here is my guess -

The factory picture, below, is a 1933 Packard 1004 Super Eight 7-passenger sedan (body type #654).  Please note that the size of the rear door and the size and shape of the quarter window is a good match to the unknown Packard.

The front door 1/4 lite is not as long as the 1933 1004 version? Perhaps more like the 1934 Super 8?

 

Yes the forward lower corner of the vent window is different. Yes, we in NZ call it a quarter light - an English term - the Yanks call it a vent window.

Spinneyhill, 

I think you nailed it.  The unknown car is a 1934 Packard 1102 eight, 7-passenger sedan.  Factory picture below.

That is a good photo although the lighting is not good enough to highlight the pin striping very well. I notice the car is on a turntable so they could take a photo from many angles without moving the camera.

 

@Grandpa where do you find all these factory photo's?
