I want the History of my Vehicle

Post by John 3:16 » Wed Jul 09, 2014 4:04 pm

Hi comrades,
I just recently purchased a 1937 Packard 115c Touring Sedan. The number on the plate is 10828460. The car is well preserved and looks all original. I would like to know the history of the vehicle. Can anyone help me?

Any clues come with the car like old registrations, insurance stubs, service receipts, etc. showing information on a previous owner? You can contact local clubs from the city/area where the car was purchased to see if anyone there remembers it. You can check with the roster keeper for the 115Cs on this club's site to see if it was registered. Is there a dealer name stamped on the patent plate? This will give you the name of the dealer who delivered the car when it was first sold. How about the person from who you purchased it, what does he/she know about the history of the car? Just some suggestions, good luck in your search.

When I was 18 in 1951, I bought a 1940 Packard 110, 4-door sedan in Eugene, OR. When I went into the army in March of 1953, I sold it. I have no paperwork on the Packard, but do have a photo of the car with Oregon license plate visible.

Any ideas to trace the Packard to see if it is still around? Or find out its demise?

Just curious. Thanks. Wayne Warner, Springfield, MO

I can't tell you anything special about your car, but I can tell you that if you got it from the Packard Dealer in Eugene Ore in 1953
was a firm called; Robertson & Perry Co. perhaps this will help......

Wayne, I don't have encouraging news; even if you had the vehicle number your chances of tracing the car are slim and without it, just about impossible.
