This 1937 Packard hearse appeared on eBay which, according to the description, has a body by a coach builder other than Henney. 1937 was the first year of Henney’s and Packard’s exclusive agreement so it is interesting to see one by Silver-Knightstown.

Also interesting the wheelbase of 158” as my 1941 was 160” which I had thought went back some years but apparently not.

Looks like it was based on a 120 and not a super eight.

The Henneys of the era were also typically on the 120 chassis but had 160 trim. My 1941 was a 120A but looked like a 160 which they also made but it was far less common.

Don, to be totally correct your 1941 was not a 120A. The ABC was only used from 1935-37:
1935 120A
1936 120B
1937 120C

The proper designation for the 1941 120 commercial chassis is 1901A.

Yes indeed, that is correct. They were often referred to unofficially as 120A.
