New Owner, New to Packards...Single Six, Photo added

I'd like to add my car to the Registry, but I'm not sure of the nomenclature. I "think" that it is a First Series Single Six 133/225. 133" WB, 7 Passenger Touring, Wooden Wheels, 2 wheel brakes, battery under floor, tail and brake light combo. Engine Number *U19247*, "Serial Number" U19131A. The "Serial Number" comes from an old state Registration paper that came with the car. The builders data plate is missing. The car was/is registered with the engine number. Might I find that "Serial Number" stamped on the car, other than on the missing data plate? The car was/is now registered as a 1921.

This car, a remarkable survivor, was in the collection of the most noted collector in our County in the late 1950's until his death in, if I recall, the early 1970's. I well remember the car from frequent visits to the Gentleman when I was a High Schooler driving a Model A Ford. Never dreamed then, nor now, that I would ever be lucky enough to own such a fine car. It hasn't taken much at all to revive the car, Thank You, but I don't think that any of the prior owners really had her running right, based on the amount of dirt I found fully clogging the carb to intake manifold return line.

I'll have more questions, I'm sure and will be grateful for your help. Just got new tags today, so tomorrow should be very interesting!!

G'day Jim,
to PackardInfo, I too would like to see your Packard in the Packard Owner's Registry! However looking in the Model Info pages for First Series cars I didn't see a 133/225 combination.

I'd think forum member DavidM will see your post but, just in case, I'll give him a nudge in this direction. David, being a First Series owner, is very knowledgeable in this regard.

There's the rub RE: "Series" vs. number designations. Photo to follow soon.

Hi Jim: I'm envious, that looks like an outstand and unmolested car - here's hoping it gives you much pleasure.

I note you're from Oswego, NY. My grandfather and his brother arrived in Oswego from Germany in the 1880s, my Dad was born there, and I've visited many times, both as a youngster and more recently - enough to say I know the city reasonably well. As a kid I sailed thru the barge canal locks several times, toured the old hydroelectric plant when it was still functional. My grandfather was a foundry worker - Fitzgibbons. Just two years ago I was there for a funeral and toured the maritime museum. I believe I still have some distant relatives there. The old family home was 241 East 7th.

Dave, I think you got mixed up. You are talking about a total different town. Oswego is on lake ontario and Owego is west of binghamton. I used to live in the catskill mountains about an hour east of binghampton.
