I have no personal interest or stake in the eventual sale of this 1937 Packard 120 Touring Coupe Project.   Note: Serial plate shows body type number (1094) plus the actual production number of that body type (2872), starting with a base number of 200.  The engine number stamped with a prefix 'X' indicates rebuilt replacement engine, iirc.

The prefix "X" is the usual prefix for a 1937 120 Eight Cylinder engine numbers. X133718 is within the range of X100001 to X150267 for 1937.

They're great cars. I bought one several years ago which was also in Mass. and had it shipped here. I had it painted the same bronze color and eventually traded it straight across for a newly restored '30 Model A with a rumble seat....

Thaniks Mal, I checked the reference in The Standard Catalog of Independents edited by Kowalke, list motor number ranges as 395500 to 449999.  I'd better check other sources to see if they agree.

My reference is the from the table of engine numbers on PackardInfo, photo attached. I see the first number you quote is "close" to the first number in the table for Super Eights(320ci). Kimes book has same numbers for the 120 and the Super Eight.

Hi Mal

I should have referenced the PackardInfo chart, its the one that's most likely correct.  The ranges from the Standard Catalog look like those given in a Chiltons or some general reference, not what Packard issued.  Lesson:  Always check two sources before typing...

I've never seen that body style. It looks like a 2-door sedan that a salesman could save $100 on by Packard deleting the back seat. I see an ashtray and what may be an armrest in photo #6...also the outline of what may have been a seat back in the old days...

The fact that it runs and some new tires are in one picture are pluses. One of my two favorite Packard models.

Jeff, the rear seat is shown in one of the photos. Looks like it was used as a high-class hauler!
