As noted previously in this thread, the 9th Series (1932) was the first to used the new body type- production number format from the get-go. Some late 8th Series apparently were also so numbered.

Sorry, I missed that the first time. Was that info I posted on your car correct?

It appears to be correct though the 11th Series Eight car line had 2 5-passenger sedans, and 1100 and an 1101 (body type 713) on a slightly longer wheelbase, not sure which one the photo is.

You'll now see a "Packard Decoder" option on the Main Menu now. It should work for Vehicle Numbers 1932-1956 and Engine Serial Numbers 1899-1956.

This is in complete 'beta' testing mode, as I find more gotchas and things I have to still account for. I still need to add some more info for that gets returned with the Engine results to show relative models for which that engine is applicable. But that's code to write on another day.

Give it a try and let me know if it works or what doesnt.
