Flackmaster: Thank you for reply, I did rule out a 1939 Packard Rollson 1701 in New York some time ago, however my current message is a different car - a lead was given to me about a man from upstate New York who may own the car in question.

Many thanks,

Van

To All:

Thanks to the kindness of the guys over at Bulb Horn Magazine, I have received a copy of the Vol 4, 1959, pp49-51, article about Dan Topping. Unfortunately, it was not about the missing 1939 Packard Rollson.

Will keeping looking!

To All:

Does anyone have a copy of the "Bulb Horn Magazine" from 1959, vol 4, page 51? I have learned that an article on Dan Topping is in this issue, and it might be about the 1939 Packard Rollson 1701.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Van

Re: Owen

Thanks for the great pictures and story of this 1934 Packard Town Car. Even though this is not the Topping trade in, this seems to fit the mold of a Rollston being traded in on a new Rollson, even given some problems with the ID numbers.

Fascinating!

I have checked, rechecked, and triple checked these numbers, which are typed on the original invoice.

This story of a missing Rollson 1701, and now a missing or non-exsistant 1934 trade in, is the kind of material that a book could be written about.

Seriously, thanks for your input.

As a secondary story of interest on this Rollson 1701, when it was purchased Dan Topping traded in a 1934 Packard Town Car Model 1102, No. 374312, Vehicle No. 1101-12., for an allowance of $755.00. The purchase:

Purchase of 1939 Rollson 1701 $5,455.00
Less Trade In 1934 Town Car 755.00

Total cost $4,700.00


It would be nice to know if this 1934 town car still exsists.

Re: Gene in Florida.

Thank you for your private efforts in finding this classic. Unfortunately, the Rollson you mentioned was not the one I have been looking for.

Best wishes on your retirement!

Van

To All: Had the privilage of talking with a close member of the Topping family. Sadly, they could not provide any information on this missing classic.

Will keep looking!

To All:

New info on this still missing Packard Rollson:

Car purchased at the Packard Motor Car Company of New York, 485 Madison Ave, on January 11, 1939. Branch - 61st.street.

Car not delivered until June 29,1939, due to the last minute change to have a chromium windshield installed at the additional cost of $180.00.

Has anyone ever tried to use the records of the New York Motor Vehicle Division to tract a particular car?

Still have no photo of this classic.

Any info would be appreciated!

Van
