I would not even consider putting brakes back together without new copper seals where required. Sure, back when these cars were new and were unlikely to have ever been disassembled it was okay to reuse them but after all these decades and possibly many times being disassembled and recompressed, they are due to be replaced. They’re cheap but lives are not so by all means replace them even if the supplier did not include them in their kit!

I agree. If your pedal is heavy, it would be far easier to find the reason and fix it rather than re-engineering it.

The green one has been for sale for quite a while as the price is far too high in its current condition. Tempting as it’s not that far away but not at that price.

Here is a closer up view of the worst of it. It looks like an old bondo repair that got worse, plus a few new rust holes. I don't have body work experience or a welder.


May be better to call Mike at Tucson Packards and get a dry desert, rust-free replacement fender!

Yes, I took it as a joke referencing the thick glass and got it right away! Must be my odd sense of humor.

Wouldn’t a pair of wave washers do the trick of adding friction? My 1965 Imperial LeBaron also has pop-up air outlets on the dash (and on the rear shelf as it has dual A/C) and they work well with those.

Howard, I think that the modern technology that I used to make the thin ‘53-‘54 rear fender scoops should be able to do it easily but would be expensive. Still, I’ll look into it at some point.

Interesting to learn that the vents are plastic! I thought they were zinc castings as that’s what mine feel like and fortunately my dash is hanging upside down on the wall so they’re safe. They should be easy reproduce, though, so I wonder if anyone has tried. If not, I might give it a go.

The new Netflix show called Hollywood has so many Packards that in the first episode I lost count and the trailer alone has at least four. Here is a senior 1940 convertible and a 1941 LeBaron Sports Brougham but I also spotted a 22nd series and a late '20s or early '30s Packard flashed by too fast to see.

NOTE: Explicit language and situations!
