Re: packard 1940 coupe chauffeur need

Hello - Thank you for your post.

What is the vehicle number for your car? It would be located on the metal plate, about 4-inches square, located on the firewall under the hood (bonnet) of the car.

Can you post any photographs of your car to this forum? Thank you.

Re: Circa 1954 dealership poster

I've not seen one like this before, but (no doubt) Packard headquarters sent copies out to the dealerships in the early 1950s.

Underground, secured, parking at the Westin is = FREE = to registered guests of the hotel, as long as they are also registered for the PAC National Meet. And, the rate of $129. per night is a Bargain.

Re: 10 Year Service Watches

The watches were presented from 1918 every year through 1951. In 1918, Packard's board of directors approved $10,000 for the awards.
The complete story on these awards was published in The Packard Cormorant magazine (#171, Second Quarter 2018).
