The trunk emblem must certainly be an accessory. You don't see it on many of the cars.

Two questions:
1. Is it normal to wrap an entire exhaust system, including muffler and tail pipe? Is there some sort of benefit in doing that?

2. Why wouldn't a 900 Registry have all six known cars listed?

Beautiful car. I'd love to have it.

I'm pretty sure they're black.

Another suggestion I recently saw was to clean the rim thoroughly, then line it with duct tape, giving the hub caps tabs something to dig into.

I think this is becoming more common now that people are getting their wheels powder coated as opposed to just painted.

Once upon a time that was your rebound bumper which was to keep your upper shock arms from banging on the frame when the wheels dropped down.


If that's what this is from, it would only be the portion holding the rebound bumper onto the frame. The actual rebound bumper would be many times that size.

Interesting body as it is devoid of the rear quarter windows, the rear window looks smaller than my 1608 and it looks to have had some form of partial top cloth/vinyl covering.


Being a formal sedan, it is on a shorter wheelbase than your 1608. Thus, the differences you pointed out. The Formal sedans had padded leather tops.

Howard is correct. 1940 models were the first commercially available cars with air-conditioning.

Nice car. I hope you'll be able to buff and polish the paint back to a good shine.

This is "Packard Inc. Philadelphia." This wasn't a dealer. It was Packard's distributor in Philadelphia. Dealers buy from distributors.

IMO, many Packards could benefit from an extra ground between the engine to the body or frame.


My 1940 came standard with an extra ground; from transmission to frame.
