8x10 black and white Packard Co. file photograph, from copy neg. of glass neg., of 1899 Packard Model A Number Two. Inscribed on photo back; 1-cylinder, 9-horsepower, 71.5-inch wheelbase 2-person roadster with carriage top, body by Morgan & Williams, carriage manufacturer, Warren, Ohio. This deluxe Model A was built for William Doud Packard who used the car for about a year and is said to have driven the car as far as Lakewood, N.Y. The car featured a wood panel dash on the back side which was a compartment for tools & packages, the top fitted with a cushioned top, and surrounded on three sides by a brass rail. W.D. Packard's son Warren recalled that at about age 9 he would perch on this seat and hang on tight to avoid going over backwards. All 5 Model A Packards were either completed or under construction in 1899 and all considered to be 1899 Packards.
