Greg, I believe that the lamps below the headlamps are so-called auxiliary lamps for city driving. The -> fact book mentions them. The -> cowl lamps are park lights.

... i just added the car to the registry, you can see an image of it there ...


Open in new window


Gary (Wallybones), when it comes to your specific car, that is shown in the owner registry, then the internet is a rich source. Take for example -> this page:

"A passionate car collector, restorer, and active AACA member with numerous restorations under his belt, he discovered this rare Packard outside of Buffalo, New York in the early 2000s. He brought the car home to Ohio where he and his family began the painstaking process of restoring the car to concours standards. Penn-Dutch Restorations of Glen Rock, PA was called in to perform the body restoration, paint, and detailing ... Following its outstanding restoration, this Packard was shown in numerous AACA events, earning its First Junior at the 2012 Southern Fall Meet, and a Senior National First Prize at the Auburn Spring Meet. It was also shown at the 2012 Glenmoor Gathering. In the time since the restoration has matured while remaining worthy of display in regional concours and club events today. Such is the Light Eight’s rarity, exquisite style, and historical importance, it qualifies as a CCCA Full Classic and is thereby eligible for CARavan tours and Grand Classic events, where the brisk and lively performance that makes the 900 so desirable can be fully appreciated."

... posted for documentation of original equipment ...


Not sure if the "For Sale, Wanted, Trade" forum is the best place for documentation. But don't get me wrong please, Randy, thanks for posting. How about the "photo archive"?

Michael (JoeSantana), how could you do that? Honestly! No one is in position to correct him on this. Be so kind to align your thoughts and actions with the principles of Ingsoc* by making "all other modes of thought impossible." [Nineteen Eighty-Four, novel by George Orwell]



*Ingsoc: for when Stalin is too libertarian for you

How about this:
Once upon a time, when Detroit was still part of the legendary Packardia empire they found an old fresco, which contained a potential answer to the original question. By help of scientific application of computer-generated imagery a natural imitation was modeled, showing the proper use of both parts.

One of these? I must admit though that the drawings aren't intended for a 1591-2050 chassis 2055 but they help maybe nevertheless.
