Nice! Would the chrome 'pillar' between the front and rear door glass have stayed there when the windows were down? (I think Kaiser-Frazer's 4-door hardtops had a similar fixed pillar between the windows.)

A Patrician with a 3 on the tree- or in modern parlance "Millennial theft deterrent" is an oddity!

That's great, love it!! My '54 Studebaker has a double deterrent - three on the tree, plus the starter button under the clutch pedal.

Jason, thanks for posting all the pics of the progress on your Packard. Your hard work is obvious!! The transformation is amazing. For example, no way that I would have expected the dash to come back that nice.

Looking forward to seeing more of your progress, and especially pics with the new interior installed.

Paul

Oh no, the '55 Patrician link didn't make it!

Paul, now you've got me thinking my knee-jerk answer my not be correct. I'll check Neal's book myself tomorrow.


O_D, were you able to check Neal's book?

That's a lot of car for $7500! And great looking original paint. The 356 and overdrive sounds like a fine combination for highway cruising.

Thanks Owen_Dyneto for the info. What had me wondering was that pretty much every online source (including here at www.packardinfo.com) indicated that the 2282s were export only.

I'll try to get ahold of a copy of Bob's book. I assume this would be "Packard 1948 – 1950", correct?

Thanks, Paul

1949 Packard Six Touring Sedans (2282)?

Are any 1949 Packard Six Touring Sedans (2282) known to still exist, especially in the US?

I’m curious about these, since most references indicate they were export only. However, my family’s Packard dealership in Hempstead NY sold nine (9) of these vehicles. (These nine are detailed in the attached .jpg......I couldn't get the HTML table code to work).

Are there other US dealers that are known to have sold these 1949 Packard Six Touring Sedans?

Thanks for any input!

Paul

Found the following on Facebook marketplace. These are NOT mine, and I don't know anything about them.

Thanks folks for the quick responses!

The info Owen_Dyneto provided explains all the engine number suffixes except the six cylinder "CE" -- engine number G5145CE (car serial number 2282-9-2708). Any idea about this one? Did the six cylinder engine have a cam and oil pan change also?

Also, any idea on the letters mean at the end of these serial numbers:
2462-32235A
5477-2697C

Thanks!!
