I think the 288 is a radiator style/configuration, vs motor reference. It's probably just a fluke that it matches a Packard motor of the same designation.

I'd like to know if there is a physical thickness difference between the standard and A/C ones. Or what is the radiator marking to designate an A/C rad.

This is one of the reasons, during all the times I was under the Clipper working on it when I had the car up on jack stands, I always had a backup jack stand positioned right next to me to catch the load before my body did. A little extra insurance. So if the car was on two jack stands, I had a 3rd right next to me. If the car was on four, then I had a 5th right next to me. Also always tried to use jack stands that were completely overkill rated. So I generally was using 6 ton ones.

Very sad news indeed. Randy has been with the website since the very beginning and I meet him online at AACA before then. I only had the pleasure of his company one time when we were both at the Packard Museum show in Warren many moons ago. God speed my friend. Hopefully he is conducting his model trains in a better place.

When I shipped the Clipper from Calif to Chicago, I used a company called United Routes. Which I think is a broker of sorts. But the same driver that picked up the car was the same driver that delivered it 5 days later. It was in the bottom deck of an enclosed two-story hauler towards the front on the truck and was in the same position when he delivered it. Basically he told me it shared company with 3 corvettes headed east. Those were picked up after me and delivered before me. So the car never was moved once loaded. The driver was local to the Chicago area.

In the parts list, there is no further description of it. That's it. Hopefully one of the guys has picture of it installed or something for reference.

Folks, just a reminder as we approach another contentious election period here in the US. This is a website to talk about Packards and help and support those that need information.

It is not a forum for political opinions, or to add some kind of political agenda or similar comments to posts.

There are plenty of political based websites out there for those types of conversations and this is not one of them. If you have a problem with your city, state, or government policies, etc, please contact them. If you think we've gone to hell in a handbasket as a country/society, then please go back to stocking your bunker.

We all have our own political opinions and then it is fine. But, this is just not the forum to air them in.

So now that is all clear, I will just remove any posts that wander off the reservation in that regard.

Folks, as Packard famously advertised "Automobiles built by Gentlemen for Gentlemen". Please, let's try to live up to that standard.
