1950 Model Year Identification

Packard engine numbers were stamped on a white-painted boss on the upper left-hand side of the cylinder block. A vehicle number was also stamped on a plate attached to the left top side of the cowl and was the same as a Body/Style Number, since it identified the model or style. The Body/Style Number appeared as the first four digits of the Packard serial number, followed by the engine number. Engine numbers for the Standard/Deluxe Eights were H-200001 to H-291000 for 1949 (Series 2300) models and continued through H-295000 for 1950 (Series 2300-5) models. Engine numbers for Super Eights were H-400001 to H-41 6000 for 1949 (Series 2300) models and continued through H-425000 for 1950 (Series 2300-5) models. Engine numbers for Custom Eights were H-600001 to H-602000 for 1949 (Series 2300) models and continued through H-61 0000 for 1950 (Series 2300-5) models.
