Text says 138" wheelbase but to my eye it looks like 127", a 1903 chassis.

yes , 1903. If I squint at the data plate I see style 1472, which is the 127" touring sedan.

It says it sold for $5,500? Wish I would've known I could get a '41 for that price.

Me too! I never would have guessed that '41 160 1903 would have sold so cheap. Someone bought a great bargain.

Stay tuned for more info on this one. For now, 35,000 original miles, interior is cleaning up nicely, no O/D or radio but that's ok. Seems to be a single repaint, however the job is so thorough I feel as though it might have been a dealer re-color to accomodate a sale. The car hasn't run since 1974 and was part of the Roaring 20's museum in VA. If anyone has a back story on the car I'd love to hear it.

My friend won it, of course with a little 'push' from me. The final bid doesn't reflect the bidder's fee, sales tax, etc. We're bringing it back to life but will keep it's survivor status. The interior is all original, faded but no torn or worn spots. The chrome cleaned up nice, the engine wasn't stuck but 1 valve was a bit fussy. I'm certain the clutch disc is stuck to the flywheel, also common when a car sits for over 4 decades. No rust holes except for a small bit under the right sidemount. Dash plastic is what us Packard folk dream of finding. The door weather seals were melted away, and I surmised that it may have sat in front of a big window and saw more heat in the VA summers than most of the other cars. I found a picture set of the museum and go figure, damn near right in one of the big front windows. New seals ordered but still some mess to clean up in that regard. Overall a nice car and yes indeed, the 127" wheelbase. I find that to be way better than the 138" versions. Film @ 11...
