That answers it. I didn't know the accessories would separate into so many pieces. Good luck on a quick "concert" though. Looks like you'd need the back seat of the Packard for the staging area.

Appears to be a 34 Twelve, 1107 (142" wb), body style 730 or 731. Tires look to be heftier than the 7.50 x 17 x 6 ply that was OE. And the plain bail cap was chosen over one of the optional radiator caps so it wouldn't appear so decadant?

Another Twelve (with interesting side mirrors), displayed at the EXOTICA, a vintage car rally in Moscow. It was labeled with "1933 Packard, 160 instead of 180 horsepower".

Thanks for the picture. Actually it's a 1934. The front bumper is from a Twelve but it's unclear to me if the car is actually a Twelve or not as another identifying feature would be the head and fender lamps which appear to Eight lamps.

Dave, thank you. An Eigth or a Twelve - I'm afraid it could take a long time until the veil of history lifts. With view to our solitary photograph (click to enlarge) I'm able to complete a bit what was said. The number plate contains "Сф" = Sf like "Sofia". That seems to confirm that the car was registered in the capital of Bulgaria. And please take a look to its flagpole. Its presence could be a pointer to an official car or a former official car (tread wear).
