1940 120 extended rear bumper
Just popping in

There is a 1940 Packard 120 sedan convertible in the attached. The bumper extends well beyond what I think would be necessary for a factory luggage rack. Hopefully those of you who are experts in this era can tell me: 1) why would there be a longer bumper bracket?
2. The owner says he bought from a family who's parents owned a Packard dealership, and was always told it came that way from the factory. Was something like this ever offered as an option from Packard?

Thanks in advance for helping a rookie!!

Those are most definitely bumper support irons for a trunk rack equipped vehicle. Either the car had a trunk rack equipment when new, or for whatever reason, speculation ________, the car has them now.
