  • NM hunt: '49 Packard limo

    Divider models are limos while non-divider models are referred to as 7 passenger sedans. So technically, this is the latter. Notice that the rear doors have an additional 6" or so besides the stretch behind them.

    Hood, most of grill, one bench seat, gauges, taillights, rear bumper, & both jump seats were missing. The metal was pretty straight & so rust free that it was a shame to see so many parts gone.

    No mistaking a body number when it is beautifully stamped a foot across into the firewall!

    This Packard is available according to a neighbor. Owner wasn't home and I didn't stick around. Guessing on year, btw.

    Didn't take much mileage or time (about 4 hours apart) before coming across this *perfect* donor for the limo:

    Everything at this hidden spot (same place that had the '35 Pierce Arrow limo) is for sale. Doesn't take much creativity to see the limo arise after coming across the donor. How hard can jump seats be to find..? Heh.
