It's not as simple as that.
I want to keep it relatively simple, so would leave out exotics like the Tourist Multiple, Or the 35mm twin lens Contaflex.
Up until 1935, Packard was a very high end car. In 1935 they introduced a less expensive line, which got them through the depression. For some, the question is which cameras would such an owner want and use, and which are appropriate for what time period. Leica, many Zeiss offerings seem appropriate, as do a number of high end Kodak cameras. Rolleis, of course....
I don't see press cameras as appropriate because most Packard owners would not have been working photographers.....
For the thirties through the fifties, many choices seen relatively obvious. What about the period from 1899 to the depression? I see mostly roll film of some kind, almost no plates or sheet film because of who the owners were.....
