I was just wondering since this is the time of year when most of our cars sit for the winter(although today in Philly it's approaching 70 degrees Fahrenheit!) what would be a good electric fuel pump for my car-a 1940 Packard 180.

Just a question for future reference is it possible to install overdrive on a non-overdrive 1940 transmission?

Does anyone have a diagram showing the proper routing for all the wires on a 1940 180 deluxe heater/defroster?

So it was produced early in the year but didn't sell until July? Interesting. Then again they only made 1900 for 1940 so it could of been produced closer to the date it was sold. Also weren't the senior Packard only produced after an order was received for one?

I think the vehicle identification number from the data plate is 1342-4301/or 4501. I will go to the garage and get a better picture tomorrow. The insurance card on this car lists the VIN as 13422501 I am not sure which is right.

The car was sold in Boston Mass on 7/16/40. I will stop by the garage where I store it and get the Vin.

The first pic is of the heater control I was told this is for a 160, the second pic is of the air cleaner (from the catalogued) this is the air cleaner currently on the car, also for a 160. The third pic is the air cleaner I need (shown on a 180 Darrin). I am looking for a solid original that may need repainting but is not a rust bucket or full of dents.

I need the proper air cleaner for a 1940 180 and also the proper heater knob in beige.
