Other than there being a 'nice bunch of goodies' that go with that car, it seems priced awfully high?? Or is it just me?? Chris.

Don, thanks, yes mine IS different, but the parts list Mal posted has the correct #'s for '37-'39, so will make sure I qualify that when talking to Kanter. Appreciate the heads up nonetheless. Chris.

Joe Santana shepherds the 'Duchess', a '40 convertible and has done extensive restorations on all facets of the car. I suggested him as your car being a convertible, would have lots in common with his, and he is a generous contributor on this site. Chris.

Hi James,
Thanks for weighing in. I am going to phone the Packard department as soon as the border opens up and was going to order new cylinders and shoes for the rear of my car (already got new master cyl and front shoes and cylinders from you folks) and will inquire as to P&D on drums at that time. I have a mailbox in Washington and can get US shipments sent there and pick them up at my convenience. Shipping directly to Canada is simply prohibitive. Chris.

Hi ElGroucho,
Just wanted to say 'beautiful car'!! Re the interior/top conventions, thinking Mr. Santana would probably be a good source on info on that, as he is very well versed in such details. Chris.

Hi Tolandis,

Napa carries a 'Classic Car and Hot Rod' oil that has a zinc additive and is available in various viscosities. Chris.

Thanks Dave, that'll widen the scope of my search a bit. Like I say, I'm okay right now but intend on keeping the car and can foresee a day when my current drums are too thin to be turnable or serviceable, so it's always good to be on the lookout. Chris

Hi Don,

Thanks and 'hi'... your reasoning sure sounds 'correct'. I was under the wrong impression with the model numbers, thinking the 1700 4 door touring sedan was the base model and then the business coupe and wagons, etc., went 1701,2,3 etc., when in fact, ALL those 'Six' vehicles are 1700, an '01 moves up to the 120, 8-cylinder and then, with more weight and power, a bigger, thicker, even wider drum would make sense. Always learning with these cars!! Stay safe. Chris.

Hi Dave, Hope you're staying well through all this craziness. Re your post, that concurs with parts page Mal provided, showing the same part numbers for 1800/1900, front and rear respectively. Does your book show anything for '39 1700?? Chris.
