1936 Patent PLate on Ebay

Post by dgpnaples » Thu Jan 24, 2019 2:23 am

This 1936 Packard Patent Plate came up under Packard Parts for sale on Ebay this week. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the Rhode Island dealer that delivered the vehicle. Also why do you there are two extra holes in the plate?

Just curious for any comments on the tag.

By the way I saved the photo right side up and it keeps defaulting to the image you see.

If you click on the image, it turns around to right side up. Weird.

Extra holes are probably to mount "something" on the firewall.

I looked at the Packard website and find that the 1088 is defined as a 1937 115C.

In my "The Production Packard" by Dar Kuel for my 36 Packard it states that body type 1088 is also a 1936 Packard Six Business Coupe?

What am I missing on the Body Type number 1088? Which car does the plate belong?

Maybe David might know.

1088 means more than just a 1937 115C, it specifically means a Business Coupe body on a 1937 115C chassis.

I don't know where you come with 1936, there was no 6-cylinder Packard in 1936. Are you perhaps getting confused by the 1936 date on the plate? That's the delivery date of the car to the first owner; the 1937 115C (6-cylinder) cars were introduced on September 3,1936 so a 1936 delivery for a 1937 model year car is entirely appropriate.

So without any question the plate is from a 1937 model 115C with a business coupe body.

Yes, of course, that info is correct. But the plate is from a 1937 model year car, not a 1936. Your thread is titled "1936 Plate PLate on Ebay", but the Packard Six (115C) did not exist until the 1937 model year.
