Packard neon signs galore on American Pickers

This past week a rerun of American Pickers they picked a guy in Florida collection of vintage cars housed in a warehouse with an astonishing number of pristine functioning neon signs. Among the bevy of signs were several exquisite Packard signs in all their neon glory.

Of course, initially the guy wanted to sell, but once the pickers go there, "No, I think I want to keep that" became his familiar refrain.

Glad to hear that you have it figured out. Another cause that appears to have been left out in this post is the accelerator pump in the carburetor. It provides that little extra squirt of gas when you press down on the pedal.

Optima batteries today aren't what they use to. A good (Interstate e.g.) 6 volt lead acid battery will provide you with plenty of cranking power. If you aren't going to drive it on a regular basis (weekly)I would recommend keeping a quality battery tender hooked up to.

Don't forget that cars are best maintained by driving them on a regular basis and that they are to be enjoyed,

Question
Is there not a body illustrated part plate for the 1956 Executive 5677A? was hoping to find something to narrow down the search for the body moldings.. I see stuff identified in the actual Master parts list, but being unfamiliar with some of the terminology(what I would call locations), I'm a bit lost................


There is no separate illustration for the Executive as it was such a late addition.
Closest will be Plate No. 9 for the Custom Clipper.

Location is determined from the Group No.so you need to go to that number in the parts list and look for 5677A part numbers. This can be a bit confusing since the same part number can be used for other models with a different description.

For example on the front fender, Group 30.7805, the heavy cast pot metal moulding part number is shown as 461354-55 Right & Left Center for 5677A and other Clipper models but is also shown as the upper moulding for 1955-56 Packard models. Basically the same part used for all 1955-56 models.
Moulding 6485450-51 is shown as upper for the 5672A and 5677A Executive models only as it is different from the upper moulding for Clipper models.

Hope this helps a bit.

John,

After talking previously to Mark at Liddens with no result. Mentioned it to Adam today when there with Peter Packard, who was at Liddens closely eyeballing the '24 143 Eight Cylinder Tourer. Adam advised he knew the guy who had bought the '35 Eight Coupe, phoned him and put me on the line, sounds like a good guy. I'll email you his contact details. Also, as Secretary of the club, took the opportunity to try and sign him up as a member. Apparently he also has an earlier Packard as well as other "old" cars.

No, they are a hard fiber material so you'll have to locate some from one of the parts houses. Also, the gasket itself should be relatively thick but often people use thin ones which transfers engine heat into the fuel pump and it's back to vapor lock.
