Vehicle number space is stamped "703 579", 703 corresponds to a 1934 Eight 1100 which only was available as a 5-passenger sedan. 579 is my sequential number.
"BKLYN" for Packard Brooklyn and the date of delivery completes the information in the remaining two spaces. Curiously each stamped in the wrong position as is often seen with Brooklyn plates of the era. Packard Brooklyn on Atlantic Avenue was a factory branch under Packard New York.
Prior to the body type plus production sequence number method of vehicle numbers, you cannot determine model and body type from the VN. Occasionally right-hand drive models are distinguished by an "R" suffix.Attach file
