I am looking for the exhaust manifold thermostat cover for my 1937 Super Eight. Part #210016. Same part used in 1938 and probably '39 and ossibly also in '35-36 on the Standard Eight.
If you have one of these gathering dust on a shelf, drop me a line to <ThePackardMan@gmail.com>

I found an old dome light from my parts car.
Here are a couple of pics.
The base has three little bumps two which I have circled.
The glass housing simply has a ridge so that it can be popped on without regard to lining up any locations.

Hmmm....
Maybe readers of my forthcoming book would find this tidbit of information worthwhile????

The book is close to completion. LIFE had been getting in the way. It is just shy of 300 pages and over 500 images. Now I am working with a professional to format it properly.

'Reedman'...hmmmm
By any chance are you related to the Reedman Borthers of Langhorne, PA?

I grew up (in the 50s) in Bucks County PA.
A couple brothers had a used car business. They did very well with the policy of 'minimal profit..high turn around.'
Then they decided to venture into a Chevrolet dealership.
REmember...television was a new fangled contraption in the early 50s!...so they decided to advertise on TV.
A FIRST!!!!
Business boomed and all the other Chevy dealers in the Philly area banded together and told Corporate..
"shut these guys up or we are going to quit!"
Somehow an agreement was worked out.
The Reedman Auto Department grew to about 11 dealerships with a private test track and 24 hour service department.
My Father bought a '61 Rambler American off the showroom floor.

Any relation??????

The dome light is not screwed on. It is just popped on. I'll try and get some good pics, but it does not have threads.

For Sale: NOS 53-54? fender spear

This spear is 47.75" long with a point on one end and the other end is closed. I suspect it is for a rear fender because the closed end is not tapered for a front door to open.
I guarantee this is NOS...it still has some of the flimsy brown paper wrapping that Packard used.
I acquired this piece and 50 others from the widow of a Packard dealer.
Make me a reasonable offer!
