Photo courtesy of Stuart Blond of the decal used on the center section of the batwing air filter on the 1955 Caribbeans, part # 476001; not used on the 1956 Caribbeans. This photo appeared in an issue of The Cormorant News Bulletin quite a few years ago. The original decal may (?) have been the same as the artwork on the back cover of the Senior catalog, 2nd picture.

Trunk rack medallion for 1932 Light Eight, photo courtesy of Mark Silverter. I can't say I ever noticed that the Light Eight had it's own unique medallion. Anyone else have any observations on this?

Dave Czirr asked that I add to this thread with some photos from the original 34 Packard 1100 I just acquired. I thought I would start with part of the documentation package I received with this car, these are items the first owner, Theodore Frey, got with his new car. They include the owners instruction book and service card with their envelope, an instruction card for the Startix system, a battery warranty card, and the envelope from an owners survey. In addition there is what appears to be the factory build sheet dated 7-27-33 listing the car's equipment and color scheme. This is apparently a very early production car which was shipped to the Packard Motor Company of Pittsburgh, which I assume to be a zone office since the firewall serial number plate is blank in area where the dealer name was usually stamped. It was apparently used as a demonstrator and wound up at Liberty Motor Sales in the Pittsburgh area. It had 5,160 miles on it (!) when Mr. Frey purchased it on 11-27-33. Mr. Frey owned the car from then until November of 1987, putting less than 1300 miles a year on the car.

What great pieces of information.
Wonder what that PA1769 EMBLEM would be.
Interesting note is "STRIPE Standard Position and Size". Theres a Turn Table photo of a 34 CR that ive been looking at for yrs and swearing that it has single strip and not the double. Ive been told im nuts but this gives me credence.

The "Emblem" is the radiator cap "Deluxe" mascot or doughnut chaser. Very little of the striping remains on this car but what is there is a dual stripe, very thin.

FI states nothing about the BUTT WALNUT wood graining which i always thought to be an option. BUT does state "Equip: DELUXE". Wonder if the BW was part of this and what else was under this package or could BW be installed at the whim of the production department.

I have to get that Time Mach working.
