the details on the MID are:
Vehicle Make/Model: 0 PACKHARD 110 BUSINESS COU
(how do you spell Packard?)
I was wrong... I don't know my pre-war Packards too well, and yes it's spelled Packard
. So I broke out my reference book!
There were basically 2 types of Packards Pre-War; the Junior cars and the Senior cars. Junior cars were the One Twenty which had a 120hp straight 8 and the "Six" or One Ten from 1940-41 which had a 100hp straight 6
The Super Eight (One Sixty) and Custom Super Eights (One Eighty) were the big boy luxury cars with a 160hp straight 8, these were the "Senior" Packards.
Imagine Mercedes today selling the B and C class, and on the other side of the showroom the S600, S65 and SLS... That's how Packard got through the depression, the Six and One Twenty were priced to sell in volume, before that Packards were for the wealthy.
It's a shame Packard died, they were, by far, the finest volume built Luxury cars America ever made. And for the most part prior to WW2 Cadillac could only dream of seriously competing with Packard. A lot of people feel that the Six and One Ten hurt Packard in the long run as they cheapened what was a serious prestige brand.
If that's a 110 then the 0 must mean 1940 and some digging shows that it looks just like a 1940 110. A business coupe is a coupe without a back seat, the club coupe on those looked identical from the outside, the business coupes were designed for salesmen, etc to keep their samples, etc in the rear where the seats would have been.
