This may be apples vs oranges, but here's what my '41 looked like:

Re: Looking for grille and front bumper for ‘49 deluxe

As far as the central grill is concerned, you can use one from any 1948-1949 22nd Series Eight, Deluxe Eight, Super Eight or 1949-1950 23rd Series Eight, Deluxe Eight.
There are 5 grills available on eBay now starting at under $130.00 (missing emblem). The grills are fairly easy to come by. You can post a WTB notice here in the 'Packard Parts & Misc - For Sale, Wanted, Trade' forum.
The bumper needs further investigation. Packard switched from the open (split) front bumper to a solid 23rd Series style bumper during the 1949 22nd Series run. You will need to find out which your car needs. does the car still have the bumper and/or the attachments still in place?

When discussing 1949 Packards, it helps if you know which Series the car is. Packard sold both 22nd Series and 23rd Series that were 1949 models. There could be a major difference in the front bumper and its attachment.

If it's for a non-Clipper Packard and says 'Packard' on it, it's definitely worth something depending on condition. Got a photo?

356 for sure. 9 mains, 4 bolt exhaust connection and location of distributor clinches it.

I said that Packard dropped the CUSTOM Club Sedan with the 23rd Series.

BigKev's idea is a good one. Do you have the stainless trim for the door panels? It would probably be helpful if you could identify the trim/pattern needed for your model, e.g., Standard Eight, Deluxe Eight, Super Eight or Super Deluxe Eight. Since Packard dropped the Custom Club Sedan with the 23rd Series, it can't be that.


Edit: bkazmer beat me to it.

That sign is the home office of General Insurance Company of America. The home office was in Seattle. So...

Edit: I see Roger found it while I was posting.

The only problem now is that there is a discrepancy that will probably cause some confusion:

If I enter a number for a 22nd series 1948 model I will get ...xxxth out of 5320 vehicles...

If I enter a number for a 22nd series 1949 model I will get ...xxxth out of 8134 vehicles...

For the sake of consistency and simplicity in coding, I'd be inclined to use the total production number for the series rather than trying to calculate the start/end numbers for the year. That would give the 8134 number for both the above examples.
