...Here are two more questions. Could someone confirm or deny, please, that a 180 has the same configuration and marked seven captions as shown in pic # 1 below?...


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.

With a 148" wheelbase it has to be at least a 160. The upper "stainless" strip on the beltline is probably paint. I've never seen anything like it and assume it's a customization. The tail lights are an open question. The 1935-41 parts manual is no help nor is the 1942-1947 Clipper specific manual. Maybe he sold the senior lights to make a house payment. All the pertinent 1942 rear-end photos I can find (very few) show senior style rear tail lights (but they are all 180's).

I wonder what the wheelbase is. It looks really small, kinda like a Nash Metropolitan. I like it.

I looked at the spring arrangement on my 23rd series and it's just the same as that shown by HH56 in his photos.

I had that sticker on my Triumph Spitfire. I bought it new and the first day a tail light fell off. During the years I owned it nuts and bolts constantly rained down from under the dash. The final insult was when the left front wire wheel came off the car as I was getting on the on-ramp of the Ventura Freeway. The wheel sailed across to the off-ramp and slammed into the side of a California Highway Patrol car stopped at a traffic light. I promptly sold the miserable thing.

BigKev did a 12volt conversion on his '54 using a GM coded harness. Information on what he did starts around here. The information on his restoration project is extensive and useful.

Also, some additional info on 12v conversions here, and here.

I think Earle C. Anthony's showroom was about 3 blocks from the parade route.

PS - Snowdrift was a shortening.
