Re: what year is this Packard?

You're very welcome. As to the picture, it most likely is a factory photo taken for marketing purposes. In the above-referenced book there are numerous photos with the same whited-out background dating as far back as 1903.

Re: what year is this Packard?

With its' drum-style headlamps and the steering wheel on the right side it is pre-1913. It looks a lot like the car depicted on page 68 of the Crestline Dammann/Wren Packard book, described as a 1912 seven passenger Packard Six Touring car on the 133 inch wheelbase chassis. They state it was priced ...

Re: 1939 super 8 exhaust manifold

Checking the 1935-1941 Master parts list, it looks like the exhaust manifold is specific to that year only. It shows part number 334552 for the 17th series (1939 model year) Model 1703-3A-05. The 1940 and '41 Super Eights have different numbers for their respective years so it appears that none of t...

Re: Looking for identification help

I think there are a couple of errors at play here. The 1940 160's were assigned Models 1803 (127" wheelbase,) 1804 (138" wheelbase) and 1805 (148" wheelbase.) In the Model 1803 line the Club Sedan was assigned the body number 1376. Model 1807 (138" wheelbase) is a Custom Super Eight 180; there were ...

Re: '38 Senior wheel color

Bill,
The color looks right to me, I would figure it's Gypsy Brown also. I don't think the junior series had a choice of banjo wheel colors as the seniors did. That's a might fancy gearshift knob, the 120 had a deep brown plain knob without any brightwork on it.

Re: '38 Senior wheel color

The wheel pictured looks just like one that was on a 1937 120C 1092 touring sedan that I used to own. IIRC it was shown in the accessories brochure as an option. The '37's hub cover/horn button looked different than the one pictured, again IIRC it had the Packard crest centered on it. So I think the...
