Thanks to everyone.
Plan to start converting our R-9 to a floor shifter next week.
I remembered the general idea but the pictures really answer the questions
I had.
thanks again

Fresno,
Thank you the pdf fits the bill.
I thought I remembered the steps but the pictures are invaluable.
I am located in Modesto and frequent Whites auto wrecking as they had the R-9 trans and other parts we needed.
Also Steve in Selma? has a few 48-56's in stock in his yard for parts.
Thanks again
John Miller

Neither, I just bought a 2ton bottle type screw jack at Napa and used it.
Ps, I no longer have the 1940 Packard.
Looking for a 1937-40 2door coupe.
or a 51-54 clipper custom.
thanks for asking
sorry I cannot be of help.

If you are near California, Whites auto recking in Fresno has 2 1948 Packard sedans with good floor and trunk pans. call Cedric at 559-493-1038.
You could if you are close by cut them out yourself.
Steve at globle auto wrecking also has a couple of 48 packards with good floors and truck sheet metal his # is 559-35-1407.
Hope this helps

I know the desirability of a low level clipper sedan does not appeal to some.
However I really appreciate the lines and the minimum trim which really accentuate the exterior design of the car, very clean.
Just a thought, This is not kosher but the interior could always be upgraded to a correct clipper super interior.
That would really shake up the purist.

Back to reality I have decided to let this car pass.
Looking for one closer to home
thanks
John

Yea, its clean but the price is high for a car with no history.
Seems strange to try and sell a #3 or3+ car at a #1 price without history.
Think I will stick to cars with a verified history.
I.E. members on this Packard site or Clubs.

Especially having not heard from anyone near the car in Texas.
thanks
John
