I have no experience with this gauge but I may need one once I fire up my engine again.

An eight page article with color pictures entitled, "Packard Vin Tags" by Jim Balfour can be found in, THE CORMORANT NEWS BULLETIN. Volume LVI #11 dated November, 2021. All you ever wanted to know is in that article. The author also invited the readers to contact him for additions and corrections aehbajb@gmail.com. His detailed chart for every years lists 1929 as variety D-16(his numbering system for all the photos in the article), used from 1925-1933. Material: Brass with etched background. Size:4 1/2 x 3 1/4. Best identifier is "600 U.S. Patents".

Patents numbers on the data tags started with #1 in 1904 and was updated on the tags every couple of years through 1937 at #1350. The size of the Tag changed also changed through the years.

If I was more techy I would include the pictures of the whole article!!

Great looking Car! My Packard Eight Parts catalogue has a detailed picture, names and part numbers for each tool on Page 225. Maybe the parts catalogue for your car is the same. I hope to find original tools for my car someday as well. Good Luck.

Interior Details for 29 Club Sedan
#7

29- 640 Club Sedan
Biting the bullet and redoing my interior. I would like it original down to the fine details. Size of each item, proper location, and trim. The parts manual has lists of every material, put I need pictures and details. Any suggestions and pictures you can share? I've scoured the internet, lots of variety or nothing. I gather open cars and closed cars differ, along with what model; Standard, Custom, or Deluxe. A notch up in materials and details as the wheel base increased. I have a 640 Custom Club Sedan - big eight 140 WB.

Rear Door pockets- n/a. Two on the back of the front seat.

Robe rack rode(between the two grab handles): material?

Foot rest: Carpet piping Y/N?

Front Door pockets - Y/N? location, passenger only?

Rear seat pockets-Size, location, look.

Front kick panels- Left, N/A. Rt, small tool pocket holder? Cover or exposed?

Gray linoleum front flooring. The hold down access hardware in all 4 corners, visible inside the car, ends after the 3rd series. How is the flat wood floor secured? From under the car only? no special hardware?

Seats: I believe pleated for 640? Do the pleats wrap or stop at the edge of seat? Buttons Y/N? 1,2,3, or 0 buttons per pleat. Button location; Flat front, seat bottom, seat back? Differences material or pattern from front to back?

So many details so little knowledge!!

I just found/bought a complete original 640 club sedan but most of the interior is rotted away. sitting out in a field in California since 1941.

Thanks for any help.
