so, I brought the parts car home and I received a box of paperwork with it. Found the title to the turquoise car in with all of the other stuff. I now have a full extra set of manuals if anyone needs them. About the parts car, it is kinda complete but has lots of dents. I'm thinking of trying to take the dents out of the roof and that will determine what happens with it. I really hope it turns out ok as I like the color combo. the motor also turns over. Keep you posted!!

Hello, I have a dilemma. Went and looked at a 41 120 motor runs, new brakes, front disc conversion, only missing 1 120 emblem all other chrome and stainless is there interior is toast (not a big deal) the problem is the rockers are bad as well as the trunk, and up into the rear wheel arches also rear wheel wells are bad. is this worth saving? The car is on seattle craigslist listed for $ got him down to $2100. Does any know of a good donor body just in case I decide to pull the trigger. It would probally be easier to swap everything on to another body.

If you look at the AEA tune up chart the firing order looks like it goes clock wise the rotor on my Clipper turns counter clockwise so the firing order is opposite of the tune up chart. The person who put the wires on backwards shall remain nameless!!

Thanks for the info next time I'm up in seattle I'll take a closer look at the tube on the motor. The guy that has the motor for sale also has a 52? 200 for sale with a parts car. I'm trying to figure out if I have room at the house!!

Hello,
I just brought the parts car home and would like some info. The car is not worth saving but has a lot of good parts. Door panels back glass, ect. I have a question about the motor though. The motor does not have the standard Packard accessories with it. Valve covers have decals that say Hornet v/8. I read in this months Hemmings collector car that Packard sold engines to Nash and Hudson as early as 1955? Was wondering if these engines are the same as a 320? the article says that these motors are detuned 320's. Also the motor still turns over after being pulled out of a junkyard in '68 been in dry storage since then. Also have a chance to aquire a bunch of 55 Clipper parts if anyone is interested.
