1937 Packard Limo??

There is an interesting story accompanying this candid photo of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Moyle Sr. Moyle was the Principal behind the Marquette Cement Company in Oglesby, Il. We had dinner with his Great Grandson in Whitefish, Montana this week and he remembered hearing about the car.

In June of 1949 the Moyles boarded the Queen Mary on a trip to Mr. Moyle's childhood home in Cornwall England to celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary and brought this car along with Nephew Albert Moyle to be their chauffeur.

They listed it as a limousine, but I can't see the divider. It is definitely earlier than '38 due to the single windshield. The plate is from '37 and it looks to be a 5 or 7(most likely?) Touring Sedan, either a Super 8 or Twelve.

Can any keener, more knowledgeable eyes comment?

Any ownership records exist?

Definitely a 37 senior car. By the looks of the hood vents it's a V12.

Ok, so the bumper was new for '37 and the vents are Twelve, so it is a '37 Twelve. I think there are 3 wheelbases for Twelves 132,139 and 144" Anyway to tell which it is?

Is the round running board light in the rear fender unique to Twelves?

Anyway to tell if it is a limo vs a touring car?

By a strange coincidence I got on the forum to ask about 2 Running board lenses I have and what they fit on. Here are a couple of pictures I took a half hour ago. The threaded side is about 1.5" Diameter.

1936 and 1937 120's Are what we like best. But we also like all other Packards too.

I want to clarify, I don't know about your cars lenses but the ones I have here thread on. My junior Limo does share a lot of parts with the Senior Limos but it does not have the running board lights.

Thank you for sharing, wonderful period image of what was likely their brand new '37 Twelve. Improving the license plate appears to read Illinois 1937 149-229. Its impossible to discern which of the various sedan or limousine styles from this view. Recollections of those who rode in it might allow us to make an educated guess. Certainly hope it still exist.

Steve
