In 1926 Packard Motor Car Company started to issue Service letters to its Authorized Distributors and Dealerships the name was changed later to Service Counselors. In 30's Packard also sent some of these bulletins independent repair facilities. Over the years the look changed especially when Packard merged with Studebaker in the 1950's. When Packard ceased to production Studebaker started to send out the service information to the technicians in the field.

We are only going to post up to 1959 since most references to Packard's were dropped before that date and the vehicles would have gone out of warranty by then. If any references to Packard show up in later service letters we will post those too.

* Note: We first scanned these items at 8 bit color, after some review. It was found that items were not as clear as we wanted them. So we are rescanning all these items to 24 bit which will help with the display of the service letters. This is going to take some time, thank you for your patience.
