WTB-Reproduction VIN Data Plate for 37 Packard

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a source to purchase a reproduction brass VIN data plate for my 37 Packard.  I am told they were at one time available on Ebay but I have had no luck finding one.  Thanks.  Email:  Pint4@new.rr.com

I believe that LaVine restorations bought the Pulfer and Williams company. I don't think that they carry as many items as Pulfer and Williams did, but they do have some items for the classics.

JW-I click on the email address in your post that says www.texaspackardmeet.com and my computer says it is an invalid address. That is why I am looking for Bill email address.  Thanks.

What about Max Merritt Packard Parts.  I've bought from them before, the last thing was a complete Distributor for the '34.

Thanks for everyone's help.  I was able to purchase a repro plate from Bill Clark.  Looks nice.  Can't wait to have it stamped with the data.  Has anyone ever had one of these brass plates stamped like the originals?

Most reproduction plates I see have been "engraved" versus the correct stamping method. I'd prefer to see them stamped. Only the serial number itself should be engraved. The dealer and date should be stamped.

Try to find someone who can reproduce the Packard Font for the model/serial number.  The rendering of the number one is often a glaring error on reproduction plates.packard font numeric.jpg

Are the numbers above for example or how they should actually look?  Does any one have the 0 and the A-Z showing the correct font and size?  To do a data plate right, it might be quite challenging.  I would like it to look authentic as best as possible using a repro plate to start with.  The question is where to start and finding someone who can do it right.  Thanks,
