Wanted: good condition stainless garnish moulding that is at the bottom of the metal wood-grained door sill (left [driver's] side) and 2 cloisonne hubcaps with good centers.

I have mentioned this problem to our Webmaster but I am sure he is busier with more important things. However, as Packard enthusiasts, we certainly need to reflect our knowledge and refinement of terminology. In our Owner Registry one of the options relevant to condition is:
"Concourse"
Well, most ALL our Packards are ready to at least roll down a highway or road. That, essentially, is the meaning linked to "Concourse." The proper word in our Registry application should be "Concours" (no "e"): an exhibition of items in which awards are given for outstanding examples.
Could somebody PLEASE correct this? I see the misuse of this term even with some of the most respected classic automobile dealers; let's not be among them!

Need good quality cloisonne hubcap and the stainless piece of trim that goes below the woodgrain door panel on the back left door (behind driver's door).

Magnificent. I think I will use it as inspiration for the side and rear of my "Contemporary Caribbean.' Delighted that my original posting has brought in some other comments and material! Packard folk are the best.

Here is my take on what a contemporary Caribbean hardtop-convertible might look like. I love Teague's 1956 work, so you will find it a source of inspiration in this rendering. In step with the times, the cross-hatched grille inserts would be flat black...not silver or gold. The circle-and-vee might be all chrome. The side scripts could remain gold as per the original 55-56 versions!

Changing 56 Senior Front Parking/Turn Signal Lenses

I have new front parking light and turn signal lenses to replace my originals on my 1956 Patrician. Suddenly I have realized that I have never replaced such on the front of any 56 I have owned. Does someone have a good procedure? The shop manual has no mention of it that I can find.

Does anyone know of or have access to any kind of employee newsletter which might have been distributed to East Grand and Conner Avenue employees during the fifties [similar to what Kaiser-Frazer produced for their workers]?
