Dave (O_D), today one of the few "nameless" cars, a 1940 One-Twenty 4-Door Touring Sedan (1392) without thief-proof number between the embossed triangles. The owner of the car with vehicle number 1392-10553 seems to express a personal touch by idiosyncratic coloring of the window frames and a frog-green steering wheel.

That's perfect. Don't stop! Like Anthony (cortes121) I followed the link and read the article with interest.

For Sale Rules/Guidelines

To help avoid confusion, spammers, and people just trolling please respect the following guide lines when posting any part, item, or vehicle for sale:

1) If you are listing an item or part for sale, please clearly state the price of the item in the listing. There is no sense for an interested party having to play phone tag trying to inquire about a part that may be out of their price range. If you don't list a price, I will remove the item unless there is an explanation as to why someone needs to contact you for pricing.

I see, thanks O_D.

Today the introduction of a rare 1954 Packard Executive Sedan, one of 65 ever built. The large car is up for sale in the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

VIN: 5451-2008
Thief-Proof: C76784

I asked the seller to search for a Henney body number but there wasn't a respective number plate.
Howard (HH56), follow the link to find a couple of pics of the Frigidaire A/C. If they aren't suitable, I could aks for more.

With a probability bordering on certainty, the foldable table was the force behind the name "saloon".
But what is the function of the small hook at the driver's seat?

For contrasting juxtaposition an image that shows a 1938 Twelve All Weather Town Car by Rollston.

Hello Martin (mhartzold), welcome to PackardInfo.come
To me, it looks like 411055 and the number in question is a so-called thief-proof number. Our expert Dave (Owen_Dyneto) published -> there a sample of Packard font:
Resized Image

To -> quote him: In Packard's proprietary type font the digit "1" is represented as a "I".

Dave (O_D), the seller calls it 1938 Packard Eight "Saloon", well, at least Packard is correct and the front window seems to confirm 1938. The ocean blue beauty queen comes without vehicle number and the paint that covers its thief-proof number started to flake away. I think it deserves a place in your cabinet of curiosities. To register it in the Kingdom of Belgium, the thief-proof number <423504> embossed into the firewall was stamped into a plate too, that is fixed at the frame. Now it is double-safe, but nevertheless part of a comedy of mistaken identity. The website where the below shown images originate has two lists: a) -> offered cars and b) -> sold cars The Packard in question, which is a RHD with New Zealand roots occupies both lists. images source: oldtimerfarm.be
