I don't think there was a directly comparable model in 1938. In 1940 - 1942, I'd say a short wheelbase 160 (1803-1903-2003) with the 356 would be the competition in the heavyweight performance "gentleman's hot rod" class. 41-2 Centuries had the breathing advantage of dual carbs, but I believe still had babbit bearings.


PLUS, body style for body style, the Packard was lighter. I'd say the Packard would take the Buick.

Actually, two really nice ones were for sale recently. So, I wouldn't say this is your only chance in a lifetime. It might be the only chance in a lifetime to start with one in such bad condition, though, with a chance that some of the really hard-to-find parts are missing.

David is correct. 1942 was first year for Packard to offer turn signals. However, I believe the 1940-41 models were wired for signals from the factory.

The motor itself may need some oiling or rebuilding, but also check the linkage. Each joint may need to have the old caked grease cleaned, and new lithium grease applied.

Replacement fittings can be obtained through Classic & Exotic Service. They are soon to close their doors, though, so I'd act now. Not sure what will happen to the parts business.

I don't see any evidence that they've got Lot Numbers for anything, so you may be incorrect. The bumper and grille are just pictured in a separate photo, albeit later on down the gallery.

Since you're asking for opinions, it is my opinion that cars look much better without the bling. Neat novelty, but detracts from the clean look of the car.

You might want to visit the blog I've created on all the work I've done to my 1940, some of it giving "HOW TO" step-by-step instructions. While we have two different series, much of the work that needs to be done on each car is exactly the same.
