PACKARD TRUNK

PACKARD TRUNK

This Packard Trunk is different than the one on my 1930 Phaeton.

It measures 33 " side-to-side, 20-1/4 " front-to-back, 20-1/2 " tall.

The rear-most 6 inches of the top is a flip-up lid on a "piano-hinge" with latches on the rear (no keys, but unlocked).

When the lid opens, you can open a latch on each side-wall of the trunk, and the rear-upright panel flips 180 degrees downward, also on a piano hinge.

The outside of the flip-lid has an metal oval tag riveted toward the right top side with the Packard name in "Packard" script, and the wording "Packard Motor Company Detroit" with a blue-painted background.

Inside of the top flip-lid is a larger riveted metal oval tag.

The upper part of the oval says"WEISMAN LUGGAGE MFG. CORP."

The center part of the oval says " QUEEN QUALITY LUGGAGE"

(Sorry, but the "Q" is for both Queen and Quality)

The bottom of the oval says " SYRACUSE, N.Y. U.S.A.

There are two brackets on each side of the trunk where it appears that they each would surround a rod to hold the trunk in place.

The covering , minimally torn on the right side, is in fair condition. The interior has a fabric covering which is coming loose from the top interior surface.

There is a "nickel-sized" hole in the lower right rear lid.

This appears to be a larger, rare sized Packard Trunk. It is probably worth in the range of $475.00 , and I would like to see it go to a good home. I'm open to reasonable offers.

If this is the restoration item of your dreams, I could possibly bring it to Hershey if you buy it right away.

Tom,

The safest thing would be for you to get the inside measurements of your trunk rack, as I cannot be certain that it would be identical to the one on my '30 733.

This trunk measures 20-1/4" front-to-back, 33" side-to-side, and 20-1/2" tall.

My car's trunk measures 18-3/4" front-to-back, 37" side-to-side, and (20-1/2"-?) tall.

If your rack can accomodate this trunk, I can bring it to Hershey, and I'm open to a reasonable offer.
