I am researching what is supposed to be a 1924 coupe.

Chassis stamping is U46xxx.

What does that tell me? 6 or 8 or???

There is also a tag that reads (attached)

Special Coupe
222-16

Thanks for any help

How many cylinders and what wheelbase? I'm trying to make a connection to the bodies primarily built for the early series Single Six by Pullman. There hasn't been a lot published recently about the Pullman bodies but I think it might be a place to start looking.

Checking in Turnquist's book, 222 is the body type number for a First and Second Series Six coupe, 126" wheelbase. Production was from 1922-1925, Packard was not building by calendar year in that era. I think these were Pullman bodies.

Try the Kimes-edited Packard book on the Single Six for some history on these

Hi

My references show the 222 body no. was the four passenger coupe in the First and Second Series Single Six, 1922-'24. It has quarter windows and an integrated trunk, the interior has the partial rear seat with a storage compartment behind the driver's seat. The front passenger seat, similar to the lwb model jump seats, folds against the dash for access. Pullman is named as the supplier.

The 222 body no. shows up in the Third Series Six as well for the four passenger coupe but its different. It does not have the integrated trunk, looks more like the five passenger coupe with the separate box trunk. What the seating configuration isn't specified.

Steve

Thank you both. That is very helpful information.

This one must be different as it has an external trunk in the rear deck behind the rear window, but has a solid bench seat with a well behind it. Nothing folds and only the single seat.

Dr.'s coupe maybe, hence the "SPECIAL" with the coupe on the tag?

No engine and I am checking the wheelbase.
