Thanks, that's pretty much all I've found too.I don't even know where to look to find out.
Elgin stopped using serial numbers 5 years before the 760/761 models were introduced, and stopped making movements in the US 4 years later, and closed down the factory. I don't even know if the production records still exist. I never found anything on Wayne Schlitt's site that would help pin down a number, and his site was the most informative Elgin site out there.
That is sad........what did they put in the place? Such a shame pieces of history like that are lost, and after they held on for so long!BUT, I have the pleasure of driving by the old (and FAMOUS) Packard Proving Grounds Building daily. :001_tt2: (Sadly the high-banked oval track has been destroyed in the last 5 years.)
PBS just ran a history piece on Packard. Packard: An American Classic Car . I think there are office condos where the high bank was, but the pagoda (timing tower) is listed as a histrical landmark. You can also tour what's left of the factory on YouTube.That is sad........what did they put in the place? Such a shame pieces of history like that are lost, and after they held on for so long!
