For small sections of formed floor sheet metal, you might check any local salvage yards, not for Packards but for body-on-frame vehicles such as trucks that have body mounts stamped into cab floors very similar to what you need. Have the yard cut out larger sections, use what you need to piece and patch yours.

The same topic Mal cites has a great variety of period photos of all makes, its worth your time to peruse for the education. Here's a few I gleaned that might be of interest, with credit to the generous individuals who posted them initially.

Thanks Howard, I should have thought of the Service Index. The Mayfair had leakage problems from the outset, then for 1953, the sedans were changed to the same windshield/A-pillar configuration. It suggests sealing the space between the drip molding and the top stainless trim. We'll try it, hope it does the job. Otherwise, the sedan body seems to be very water-tight, at least from above.

Well, '53 Clipper Deluxe is out of winter hibernation, though no where much to go except local drives. I was reminded of a problem I chased last year: leaky A-pillars.

In the rain or when washing, small amounts of water appears on either end of the dash, drips on the floor. Its not coming from above inside, it appears to well from between the glass and rubber seal, that seal is nice and tight. I've used black silicone seal on the outside down the A-pillar and corner to the wiper mounts, even below the lower windshield molding to the door. When I use a little blue food color up under the drip molding to see if it coming from above it leaves a track down the ends of the dash. Ideas? Thanks!

Your decision to ship the Packard is the prudent thing to do. Maybe not as much potential fun but then maybe not so much chance for regret either.

" I'll be looking for some long drives and tours once I'm on the East Coast."

The area to which you are moving is a hotbed of Packard ownership and activity. Once you join in, local and regional tours with other Packards should be a benefit. Good luck.

Thank you for sharing, wonderful period image of what was likely their brand new '37 Twelve. Improving the license plate appears to read Illinois 1937 149-229. Its impossible to discern which of the various sedan or limousine styles from this view. Recollections of those who rode in it might allow us to make an educated guess. Certainly hope it still exist.

Sad news indeed. Though I didn't personally know Randy, I've enjoyed and learned from his many post over the years here on the Forum. His enthusiasm for V8 Packards was manifest.

My condolence as well to Randy's family and many friends on here. We're all richer for his affects on our lives.
