Owen, You're the theft proof number whisperer.


Let the ride decide, this is what I made out :

Theft proof number of C81430 on that 1954 Packard Pacific.

Anyone else wanna take a stab?

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.

Here is another 1954 car, hopefully you can read the firewall number in the engine bay picture.

This early 1951 Packard 300 Touring Sedan is equiped with Ultramatic. His youth it spent in Texas and waits for a new home in Austria now.
The color of the instruments is an optical highlight of the car with thief-proof no. A97944 and vehicle no. 2472-16086. Sometimes the sun turns the gold-silver-green instruments into light gray but there the green looks deep and fresh like new.
