Good Morning...You might start with Kanter 800-526-1096 and Max Merritt 800-472-2573. Keep in mind that many of these companies DO NOT have all of their goodies listed on the net. Often times only their best sellers...Call and talk to them, if they don't have what you need, they will almost always send you to someone who does have what you need. Develop a relationship...looks like you'll have needs for a while to come. Ernie in Arizona

In-head thermostats can be fitted to the 120s and Sixes/110s in addition to the thermostatic controlled grille louvers. Don't know about the Senior 8s and 12s.

Yes, it goes into wood. I also have a 1936 and it screws into wood (no nut plate). On my cars there is a ash member which attaches where the frame kicks up over the axle. Maybe there was nut plates that are missing behind the Sheetmetal which is over the wood.
Is the wood hollowed out behind the nut plate?

I'm getting ready to replace the side chrome trim piece on the left front fender (P/N 461355 LH). The one I received to replace it is straight. The one that was on the fender was slightly curved and the fender itself curves outward over the wheel well maybe an inch.

Should the fender & trim piece be straight or not?


No question here at all.

The horizontal diecast chrome trim over the front wheel wheels SHOULD curve. It is supposed to bulge out on both sides. So should the fenders. This is for tire clearance when the front wheels are turned. Turning the wheels to RH or LH lock gives very, very little tire clearance even if everything is set up as it should be.

I drove a 1956 Patrician recently that the owner had installed new tires... that are too big. They actually scrubbed on the front fenders. Just one more reason why it is important not to mess around with tires on V-8 Packards.

Back in the 1970s I sent out RH and LH front fender spears to be re-chromed. When I got them back, to my horror, the chromer had taken it upon himself to straighten the pieces! Of course, then they were useless. Incredible waste of time and money and what WERE the best two pieces I had to be chromed!

Ones on cars that appear flatter have been pushed that way while on the car (relatvely easy to do). The factory just didn't do this.

If any help here are dimensions and a pattern BDeB posted some time back showing the slot needed for the hump in a 22-23 series carpet. http://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/mod ... id=145923#forumpost145923

That is a 64 dollar question and I do hope someone has an answer. I think it might have been some production or stamping mold issues but no idea if they used the same mold the entire time since they smoothed out the slight ridge or crease at the top of the fender for 56. I know the 56 eyebrows are just welded on pieces but the 56 Clipper fenders have the same straight angle at the headlights as the 55s.

As I recall the first 56 sedan I bought was the same and at that time I thought the car had been in an accident. When I had that car painted the body shop said there was no indication of an accident or work done on the fender. My current 56 hardtop has the same issue -- left side is slightly curved and right side is relatively flat so if a stamping issue it must have gone on a long time.

Dallas,

The front section is one piece. I made a pattern and cut a crescent-shaped hole to go over the hump. Very similar to some of the factory carpets. Took some work to get the cutout just right.
