Don't know if you're on facebook but, a 41-42 grill was posted for sale this morning on the PAC and the Packards International pages. No price quoted but condition looks pretty good.

"The Egyptian" shown in the 1949 accessory price list as being applicable to the 22nd and 23rd Series 1948, 1949, and 1950 (all models). List price was $10.00.

Yes, I've seen photos of that one. It's got the extra 7 inches but I would keep all the woodwork, leave off the 23rd series side stainless, and use a 22nd series Custom grill and surrounding chrome that wraps to the wheel well. I'd also use the cloisonne hubcaps and 22nd series tail lights.

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.

Aside from all the above, your 1947 Clipper is seven inches shorter than the 1941 model.

Caught part 4 yesterday and I'm really enjoying the series. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

My '41 180 has the same configuration/captions with a bronze background.

Edit: It's nice to see that the two-toning was done correctly with the inner door frame body color all the way around.

FWIW, I did find this in the 1938-1939 Packard Shop Manual:
"All heads should be tightened cold and re-checked while warm. Both faces of head gasket (except Packard service gaskets which come coated) should be coated with a good grade of gasket paste and studs with cup grease before installing."

A brief perusal of post war manuals appear to be silent on the subject; this includes Packard and both my Motors and Chiltons manuals. As far as votes are concerned, I torqued the head on my post war 356 with the threads dry and clean. 7 years later... still running.

Thanks for the information. That's what I like most about this website... the sharing of obscure knowledge.
