In understand your goal (you will still have the stiffer springs of a sidemounted car). The covers connect by turnbuckle to the arm, which connects to the wheel, so you still need a wheel. I don't see why you couldn't use a lighter 15" wheel from a 120. The postwar wheel is wider.

I have some concerns with crumbling of rigid foam from vibration, but if you want to try to carve an upper and lower spacer, a trip to the junkyard for the impact absorber between the fascia and the bumper beam on a modern car may be a low cost option. It's a chunk of rigid industrial foam.

The 4 3/8 tread width sounds awfully narrow - the resulting contact patches are going to reduce braking.

you might want to keep an eye out for a radio blank out plate. It wasn't expensive and the radio repair can wait a bit. Your 120 speaker grille is different than this but the radio plate is the same.

I have a driver's side mirror which came off a 23rd series Packard, but it doesn't look like that - it more resembles the 21st-22nd shape. Can someone pipe in on which is the factory item?

"Special Eight" is the 282.

Sorry if this is obvious, but the weight of the car is meant to be borne by the hub, not the lugs. If you use the limo/hearse rims, have a tire shop but annular shims in the opening so that it fits the hub!

you should probably specify if 1803, 1804, or 1805

I believe NSG/Pilkington/LOF (they are one company now) started an operation for custom glass. They definitely know how. Sorry I don't have a contact.
