Crin,

The wiring picture from Pertronix should show the wire from the ignitor (electronic switch) going to the bottom of the coil, based on the coil in your car. The other wire from the ignitor will go to the ignition switch.

This way your ignition switch still controls the supply of power to your coil in the correct polarity.

Power has to go thru the ignitor before it gets to the coil, since the ignitor is the electronic replacement for your original points.

If you were to connect both wires from the ignitor to the same bottom terminal on the coil, power would always be on to the coil, as long as the ignition switch was on. The coil would not fire in sequence based on the distributor cam lobes and the engine would not run.

Hope this helps,

Dave

Marty,

Never had them off so I can't tell you. I tried pulling up on them to see if they would lift out but no luck.

Kelch heater, or similar to one?

Looks like there is a electrically driven blower motor on the can surrounding the exhaust manifold.

Plain weave with diagonals, based on metal cloth weave patterns?

This supplier has a weave that looks close.

I've heard of it refereed to as a basket weave.

Caning for chair seats have a similar pattern, with a few extra rows.

This is in response to a PM message requesting pictures showing front seat attachment details.

The wood seat frame has two holes that line up with two tapered pins on the seat frame. These two pins locate the seat frame and lock it in place. The spring shown inside the seat frame provides tension to the seat adjustment mechanism. The mechanism provides front-back adjustment of the seat.

The edge of the adjustment lever can bee seen in the _d picture.

Pictures shown are of an original interior.

Marty,

Ran thru this on my 901.

Battery connected, no switches turned on.

1) Horn is powered, and the interior dome light can be turned on using the switch on the passengers door pillar. Dash light can be turned on using upper pull out switch on the left side of the dash. Brake lights are powered when pedal is depressed. Ignition circuit is powered only when ignition switch is turned on.

2) Steering wheel light switch knob (left one). One CW click turns on on the fender lights and both rear brake running lights. Second CW click turns the headlights on low beam, Third click turns the headlights on high. Fender lights and both rear brake running lights are on when low and high beam headlights are on.

The lower pull out switch on the left side of the dash turns on the instrument lights when pulled out, but only when the running or headlights are on.

3) The interior dome light turns on when a rear door is opened, only when the running or headlights are on.

Hope this helps,

Dave

1958 Packard 58L 2 door hardtop

1958 Packard 58L 2 door hardtop

This is a 3 or 4 owner car depending on how one looks at ownership.

It is a California car for most of it's life and and one of only 670+/- produced.

The first owner bought new in CA and owned it for many years. He sold/donated the car to a museum out there where it sat in their storage area for many years. It's believed to have been repainted in the first owner's possession and the interior was probably done at the same time. After holding it for many years the museum sold off several of the cars in it's storage and the 2nd/3rd owner purchased the car just 5 years ago. He registered the car and drove it quite a bit but then needed to sell, so it was purchased by the current owner. His plan was to have a trifecta of rare 58 Packards and as such he had a wagon (recently sold) a 4 door sedan and this 2 door. They were project cars and he now feels that it will be too much to bring them all back, so the wagon was sold and this 2 door is now being sold.

In 58, Packard and Studebaker were merging and in an effort to save money, many Packards were simply Studebakers with some odd bits tagged on. This car would have been a Studebaker President Starlight, however, to make it a Packard, they added on extra fiberglass wings, metal dual headlight pods, a fiberglass, wider facia, hood and a matching valance. The 4 door sedans and wagons end up looking a bit odd, but the 2 door models pull it off rather well.

The car for sale was repainted from what is belived to be a cream/white color to the two tone burgundy and white and the interior was reupholstered in Infant BM Brown.

The Studebaker 289 V8 puts out 210 HP however, due to the lighter weight of the Packard, it's performance was better than the same Studebaker. The car has 91K miles on her.

She starts right up and runs and drives great. This one has a two speed automatic transmission and power steering. Everything else is manual.

The interior is in very good shape, albeit a little funky on the color choice. The burgundy paint hasn't held up too well and has several areas of flaking paint. Despite the peeling paint the body and frame are very solid with no rot through on any panels.

Even looking like she does, if you roll up to any cruise night or car show, you may not win any awards but you'll have one of the biggest crowds around you.

Awesome entrance into the collector car world with a very rare but not very expensive automobile. The new Hankook tires look pretty good on her with the white walls showing and the radial provides better handling and road feel, grip.

Asking price is only $10,500

Any questions, for many more photos and video, to schedule a test drive or to make an offer, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for the interest.
