I am amazed of the knowledge you all have on here and the information that is out there.

PackardInfo.com what would we do with out it.

Kudos to you all and thanks

Wow what a shame to loose all that to a fire. Belongings can be replaced but us living beings can not.

Thanks guys. I knew you all would come through on this one.

It sure is interesting and intriguing of the customization and design features that individuals did to their beloved Packard's.

I have shared this thread with him.

Again

Hi All,

I was chatting with a fellow GTO owner (I know not a Packard) today and he mention riding in Packard's when he was youth.

One particular Packard he mentioned (not one that he had ridden in but was aware of) was a Nickle Plated Front end from the cowl forward. He said this car came out of Mexico and was owned by a big Packard collector Howard Henry.

Has anyone heard of Howard Henry or knows anything about the Nickle Plated Packard?

Pictures of the car?

The other gent he mentioned was a Joe Duggan who also had a large collection of cars.

Take care my Packard friends.
Stay well so we all can hit the high road soon.

I used Southern Polyurethanes Inc epoxy and high build primer.

Barry the owner actually answered the phone and walked me through setting up my spraygun when it came time to spray my color even thou it was a different brand.

Good morning 014,

I stopped over at the house this morning and took a few pictures. It is hard to get some good ones due to the fact the side mount tire and the fender being in the way.

I will get back over there on the weekend and take them off and get some better pictures and dimensions for you.

Hope the ones I posted gives you and idea of what they look like.

Not sure why the pictures rotated. They look fine on my end before uploading. Urgggg

Eek these picture sure do make the car looked filthy. Well it is in away. It has not seen the road in over two years and has not been washed since....
