Should you find yourself running short on inspiration at some future point, maybe this photo will provide some fresh motivation. This photo at the 2015 CCCA Packard event at the Gilmore Museum in Michigan, IMO one of the most outstanding Packard events in recent years, plenty of photos and if there is interest, I'd be glad to start a thread and post.

I just had a distributor for a 1953 Hudson Hornet done by Jason. Workmanship impeccable and of course it performed perfectly, delivery about 6 months.

Have you asked the vendor these questions, he's been supplying these for some time and probably has all the original prints. To my knowledge the only 320 water jacket plate that is different is 1934, a one year only design due to the oil cooler mounting.

ORAYA, the 6-volt system was completely capable and competent when new and unless you are planning on adding A/C, I suggest you bring the 6-volt system back to specification and avoid the problems that often arise with incomplete or incorrectly done conversions.

I suggest you contact Waldron Exhaust if you want alternatives to the repro OEM system and/ or parts.

American Arrow has been the originating source for the trunk rack trim for a very long time, still in their catalog last time I looked. As for the 17" wheel trim rings all I can offer is "good luck", they were already getting scarce quite some long time ago.

I'm assuming the 1931 vibration damper is attached in the same manner as my 1934 (photo attached). Easiest way to turn/remove is to take an old socket and just grind a groove on each side to slide over and engage the pin. Generally to rotate the engine in reverse you'll want to use the flywheel as rotating the vibration damper fastener in reverse will just unscrew it.

Assuming the original carburetor, that's not an electric choke on the carburetor, it's the starter switch activated by the throttle linkage. Perhaps buying and reading the owner's manual would be helpful for such details.

As to ignition and door/trunk keys, Packard used the same 250 keys from 1935 thru 1956 so if you're got many Packard buddies in the area, you have a decent chance of one of them having the correct key.

It was available from 1941 thru 1950 (23rd series). Sandy Chirco (Tuscon Packard) may still offer a remasting service, the other folks I knew who did this have since given it up.

Hudson and Buick units look tantalizing the same, but they are not interchangeable.

Adrian38, with the sequential numbering in 1938 beginning at 2001 and an estimated (Charles Blackman, 2018) only 2208 2-door touring sedans made, its highly unlikely they vehicle number (VN) could be any higher than 1184-4208.
