Could it be a key code?
An internal tracking number?
A dealer number?

I don't know the meaning of the "2205" but it may be worth remembering that it was found on the teletype slip on the gas tank filler which was the chassis assembly slip and different than the body build slip would be found above the glove box. I have never had the good fortune to compare a matched set of these to see how the two sets of teletyped assembly details might have differed.

Certainly not key numbers, they were prefixed with a "P" and ranged between P1251 and P1500.

It's a mystery. I think the answer is lost to time. The 'gas tank slip' from my 1949 22nd Series Custom Touring Sedan shows 9735. The slip from my 1949 23rd Series Custom (renumbered later as a 1950) isn't legible but looks like it might be 67 something something.

The excellent book Packard 1948 to 1950 by Robert J. Neal refers to the meaning of this number as being 'currently unknown' (page 34).

I have a matched set (see above). FWIW, the only difference between the glove box version and the gas tank version is that the gas tank version doesn't show WSW (white side wall tires). I must admit that since the gas tank version was supposedly for the chassis build, I would have thought that that the tire type would have been important...

JD, thanks so much for that, I've been hoping to see a "matched set" for a very long time.

Thanks for updating. The car went to a Indiana restoration shop. Hopefully we will see it on the road again.

I know i'm late to the party, but I love the look of this '50 with the surface rust. I usually am not partial to the bathtub body style but there is definitely something about this one...
