Hello all, i've just bought a car wich seller have told me is a 1937 120, i can't tell because it doesn't have a title or the VIN plate and i don't know about the series, it just have the the theft proof number. By reading the FAQS,i think it says that the car could be identified by that.
I need to register the car and don't know how to do it.
Theft proof # 281327
And the block has stamped 1 10 51 in both sides of the block by the frewal, wich tels me is a newer engine, can anybody help with this please??
Also in other forum i was told it is a super 8 not a 120

Going by the front fenders the car is not a 120. It is a senior Packard and is probably of 1937 vintage, as 1938 Packards had split front windshields.

Jorge, as noted by others the vehicle is a 1937 senior model, not a 120. Just please confirm, is the theft-proof number enclosed by triangular brackets, as for example: <281327> The brackets were not used on the 1935-36-37 junior series cars.

G'day Jorge Cardozo,
Now that you're on your way to identifying your Packard, I invite you to include it in the Packard Vehicle Registry.

Jorge,

Now it's narrowed down to a '37 Super Eight and from the Model Identification Page for 15th Series can only be one of a few alternatives, most likely a Touring Sedan presuming it doesn't have a divider window. You could always include it as a "best guess" and, when more info comes to light, update the Registry entry as required.

Maybe a Forum Member with expertise in '37 Super Eights can assist by providing points of difference between the various models to narrow it down even further?

Thanks Ozstatman, another detail, the car has open roof, it used to have canvas top, like the old French Citroen, and is missing floor andand seats.

That was not an opening panel, it was a fixed piece of waterproof cloth. The newer technology to stamp steel roofs was displacing this older construction.
