What year is this tail light?

Recommended Posts

I have this Packard tail light listed for sale as fitting 1929, 1930, 1931, and 1932, but another eBay user said this was incorrect.

 

Does this only fit a 1931 or 1932? Can anyone provide photos, almanac notes, or original sales material that would provide definitive proof?

Here's what the 1927 343-290 tail light looks like. Red is running light. Amber is brake light. White is backup, but only works when headlights are on. 1927 is nickel plate. 1928 and newer would be chrome plate. Steve59848880a3e6e_DSCN09471.thumb.JPG.b9a1043b08fbf3d159871abed2be8fbc.JPG

That taillight fits 1929  6th Series cars and some earlier models -  others can confirm the earliest. Definetly not 1930  7th Series , or later.  The 7th Series has a profile mimicking the radiator top profile.  It was also used on other makes such as Chrysler but with a Chrysler insignia inscribed.
