I was thinking if I could find a part number there might be a blue print. Would there be a part number in the dealer accessory sheet or price list. Thanks

I cant find a 1936 running board antenna in the parts book. Would anyone know the Packard part number? Thanks

Thanks, I have never seen a running board antenna before. Seams like it would be very directional. I tried to use the isolated back of the seat springs. It worked great for certain directions then would fade out when I went the other way. (you have to go home sometime) I once saw a antenna on the center windshield post, but I cant remember how it attached. I was thinking with all the Packard coach built cars There might be a interesting solution for my Packard antenna with early 30s technology.

What do early 30's radio antennas look like on open cars? I have a 32 with what looks like a dealer's installed radio and a 1936 with a factory radio. The antenna wires only goes about a foot out of the radio and doesn't attach to anything. Thanks

Sorry, I forgot about all the other type of wheels. I have one very beat up cap. It measures 8.5 inches across the face. In the center is says; PACKARD MOTOR CAR CO. DETROIT. MICH. U.S.A. It is used on steel wire wheels. Thanks

Does any one know of who makes reproduction 1932 hubcaps ? Hirsch had them , but the salesman says they are no longer going to produce them.

Thanks again. I should be able to scale off your pictures and fit the new catch to the hood latch. I wanted to do this befor I set the engine back in. There is more room to work. Thanks again.

I tried that first. They had a 1930 and a 1932 which are both different. The 30 is all external to the hood, and the 1932 is a turn handle. They were really nice and let me look upstairs and in the basement. No luck.
I think my hood catches are probably a steal plate which the hook on the cam operating lever hooks to. It would be nice to see the real thing to make it as close to original as posable.
I've seen some of the later hooks which were a bent rod, but that was a different operating mechanism. Thanks for the suggestion.

I am working on a 1931 series 840 hood (bonnet) latch. The latches are not the turn handle as 1932 and later hoods, but it has 4, cam operated hook levers (One in each hood corner). I have the latch which ataches to the hood but am missing the catches they mate to on the body. I was wondering if someone with a 1931 Packard could take a picture of their hood latch catches, so I could fabricate some for my car. One picture of a front, and one of a rear would be sufficient. Thanks for the help.
