I started to answer and realized I not only do not know your year of car, I am not sure of your body style. I suggest using the "Model Information" area under the main menu and locating a shop manual or other manual for your car and reviewing an image of your model/year frame detail, close review will show all mounting points.

115's are 1937 only. The body is identical to your 120-C from the firewall back.

If the front fenders, hood, rear bumper, rear wiring, running boards, toe board, steering column bracket are removed, then the only think left should see all body mounting points on the frame underneath the car.

Yes it’s a 37. I got all that and more I think and I’m still missing something. I’ll get pics or a count tomorrow

Here is what I remember:
One in front of the firewall each side, 2 per side inside the cowl rails. Two per side at the A Pillar of the cowl mount. The ones down the side rails in the cab and at the B pillar are obvious, you may have overlooked the two that are on the frame rail that runs across the frame in front of the gas tank, then there are two (1/side) at the top of the rear wheel kick-up, and then the two in the trunk's back corners and then 2, each side under where the spare tire goes.

Big Ben, for inclding your '37 Six Touring Sedan. in the Registry.

You're to be commended for saving this Packard from an inglorious end in a scrapyard or worse. Albeit, with 440 power, 727 trans and corvette suspension. Without your intervention, it would have been turned into Toyota's or somesuch.

it was too far gone to make a oem car but i can keep the body and the name alive and hope that others will see it as something that is worth keeping around. just cant let a good looking ride become scrap over no motor and a locked up rear end. or just because its a shell. im sick of seeing the fords and chevys get the love and not the off makes. i want the world to look at the off makes and go ya i can still have fun with that.

only major issue it the price of parts is going to kill anyone from wanting to build one. maybe one day it will be cheaper and i can add more real packard stuff to it.

side note i know were a complete car is that will not be getting chopped up and i hope to get it running too.

The Fords and Chevies are the off makes, not Packard!
