Matching numbers on a 1934 Twelve

Greetings all,
I’m brand new here with a hopefully basic question.
How would one determine that the engine sitting in the car is the actual one it left the factory with?

The car is a 1934 Twelve, model 1107.

I understand that engine and chassis numbers did not match on early cars but production records should list what engine was installed in which chassis, ie a “factory pair”.

Is such info available in the Packard world?
Thanks in advance.

Sadly no. Unless you had the delivery paperwork that came with the car, there is no other reference form that information as Packards records were destroy when the plant closed. The best we could do tell you if that engine serial number is in range for your model and year.

and there are casting dates on the block and oil pan. (and timing cover??not sure on that) which could be correlated to the delivery date on your car, as well as with data from other 34 twelve owners...

1934 Packard Twelves have been carefully watched during the past 60 years. If you're concerned that your car has been made into a Twelve when it originally had an Eight, there are people that can give you the skinny. Provide a little more information, and I'll see what I can do.
What is the body style?

Probably 30 percent of all open-bodied 1107 Packards are fake. As a buyer of one, you really need to do your homework. There are ways of finding out.

Hi West,
Thanks for yours and others comments. I’m not buying, just repairing and the question arose due to failing repairs on freeze cracked water jackets on both sides. So, if this engine and car are a factory pair, get the block repaired, if not, then maybe find a replacement block depending on cost.

But my next question is regarding the rockers and HLA (hydraulic lash adjuster) system. Is there anybody out there that rebuilds the roller follower and needle bearing pivot? These ones are badly in need.

Since I’m a complete newbie here I don’t know the drill on photos yet but here are some numbers.
The block is #901640, data plate is #739 18, and the firewall is embossed 180326 in 7/8” tall numerals.
