Hi There,
I am looking for some info from anyone who might have a Packard from this era.
These cars have the park lamps below the headlamps but they also have cowl lamps. Do the park lamps and cowl lamps work independent of each other, which would mean an additional switch of some sort, I suppose, or do they function together on the same switch?
Also, what was Packard's reasoning behind the extra set of lamps?
Thank you, Greg

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.
