Not 100% certain, but from appearances, those are 41-120 wheels. If that is indeed the case, the correct 37 hubcaps will fit. "Packard Six"


Yes, can confirm that the 115C hubcaps will fit the later 15" wheels up to the 22nd Series.

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.


This was done by somebody on the West Coast, possibly Norcal many years ago and was a very attractive vehicle.

In your third photo, there is a washer next to the pedal on the passenger side, then next to it a circular cup that holds everything in place.
Removal of the clip will allow the shaft to be moved towards the drivers side so that the pedal can be taken out.

Let the ride decide wrote:
What’s the difference between these standard transmission?

Different casting numbers.


Referring to the photos in post #6

All 3 of these are the 1951-54 overdrive version and it is hard to tell 3 from 8 in the casting numbers.

The upper individual photo casting number is 412234 which is the case for 22nd and 23rd Series models with overdrive but is missing the 4 tapped holes in the cast bosses on the side for the rear motor mounts on these cars. With a casting date of 10.9 it may have been left over from 1950, never drilled and then used in a 1951 model.

The correct casting number in the lower 2 photos is 433192 which is the main case for all 1951-54 models, both standard and overdrive.

Not sure why the u-joint flanges are different.

The numbers quoted are as shown in the 1948-54 parts list.

The main wiring harness goes through an opening to the left of the dimmer switch and up behind the left kick panel inside the car to the instrument panel. Sorry but the photo quality is poor.

The oil pressure line goes up through a cutout in the lower firewall next to the speedometer cable and the hand throttle cable.

The temperature capillary goes up through a similar cutout on the left side of the firewall next to the armoured cable for the ignition coil.

These are from a Chilton Flat Rate manual for body repairs from the early 1950's.
I had an original many years ago.

I believe that National 6005 is a rear axle inner seal, Packard part # 384121
and the 6009 is a differential pinion seal, Packard # 329655

A click and then no lights usually indicates a bad connection between the battery posts and the cables. Try a light sanding of the posts and the inside of the cable connections.

The 1951 Wagner brake catalog shows number FC3631 as the master cylinder repair kit for commercial chassis models. Diameter is 1-1/8"
Wheel cylinder diameters are 7/8" front and 1-1/4" rear.

Here is a photo of a 1955 tail light showing the grommet that goes through the hole in the body with the larger shoulder on the outer side
Installation at the factory would have been done by feeding the wire through the hole in the body from the rear and pulling the then soft rubber grommet in place from inside the trunk
