1940 120 extended rear bumper
Just popping in

Ken Lobsinger
There is a 1940 Packard 120 sedan convertible in the attached. The bumper extends well beyond what I think would be necessary for a factory luggage rack. Hopefully those of you who are experts in this era can tell me: 1) why would there be a longer bumper bracket?
2. The owner says he bought from a family who's parents owned a Packard dealership, and was always told it came that way from the factory. Was something like this ever offered as an option from Packard?

Thanks in advance for helping a rookie!!

Re: 120 Front fender identification

I have a front fender question/observation as well. I see many Packard models from the late 30s through 41, that have front fender spare time mounts and some that don't.
Are there specific years, models or options that have the side tire mounts? Can someone direct me to the "Source" to get a firm grasp of the subject?
