I distinctly remember one of those installed on the hump of our new 1961 Ford on the way to Las Vegas. In the middle of the Mohave Desert my mother made my father turn it off and open the windows. The interior of the car was like the Deep South in August. They really didn't work (at least the model we had didn't).

That color isn't close to the Packard green so obviously that motor has been repainted.

To my understanding, there is no controversy about engine color for the 23rd series - GREY. There is some controversy about 22nd series 356 engines, most especially those dated in 1947 and concurrent with the continuing production of the 21st series.


^^^
This has been my understanding also. Absolutely no question on the 23rd Series. The only question might be on the spelling of 'Gray' or... 'Grey', guess it depends on how British you are.

Just be aware that there have been a few reports over the years of 6 volt starters breaking the snout off when the bendix gear slams into the end under the additional speed caused by 12 volts. This may not happen to you but... it has happened.

Let me know what you find out. I have the same problem, same year, same model.

Had exactly the same problem. The mechanic attempted to twist the stuck hydraulic lifter out of the seat. The result was not nice to see. The top half of the follower broke into pieces. This required pulling the cam to replace the broken follower. Ross' idea of crushing the hydraulic lifter makes good sense.

Don't know if you're on facebook but, a 41-42 grill was posted for sale this morning on the PAC and the Packards International pages. No price quoted but condition looks pretty good.

"The Egyptian" shown in the 1949 accessory price list as being applicable to the 22nd and 23rd Series 1948, 1949, and 1950 (all models). List price was $10.00.

Yes, I've seen photos of that one. It's got the extra 7 inches but I would keep all the woodwork, leave off the 23rd series side stainless, and use a 22nd series Custom grill and surrounding chrome that wraps to the wheel well. I'd also use the cloisonne hubcaps and 22nd series tail lights.

I've always wanted to swap the body of a Station Sedan onto the frame and front clip of a 22nd/23rd Series Custom or 23rd Series Super Deluxe. I think the result of the extra 7 inches and egg crate grill would look really nice. I agree with 'Owen_Dyneto' that the subject Station Sedan is at best a parts car. Here's a photoshopped version of what I'd like to see for real.
