1956 Can you identify from info on title?

Post by 1953Wrecker » Thu Jan 03, 2019 5:41 am

I'm hoping someone can help me identify the model of a 1956 Packard from the manufacturer's number on the title. Info on title is 1956 model, 4 dr body style, manufacturer's number 5682MG1644 (I think it is MG, hard to read and the G could be an 8), 8 cyl., 4-1/8 bore, 54.45 hp. This was my brother's first car (long gone). I would like to frame the original title for him with a 1956 magazine advertisement showing the car. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome!

Very straight forward identification, 5682 identifies the vehicle as a 1956 Packard Patrician (senior car line, 4-door sedan). 1644 identifies it as the 644th 1956 Patrician built. MG identifies the paint scheme, Dover White over Aegean Blue.
