Sadly I don’t but I was basing my comments on his books.

That means that it was either made in Canada or was rebodied. As for the 1942 DeSoto, that is indeed what it is and it caught my attention immediately as it was the only year with hidden headlights. We have a large signed serigraph of one by Harold James Cleworth who my partner knew back in the ‘70s.

I’m fairly sure the agreement started in 1937 but whether for the 1937 coaches or later ones vague.

It’s definitely Packard but not Henney-Packard as they made no carved-side coaches. Also, since Henney and Packard started their “exclusive” arrangement in in 1937, it is probably before that. I don’t know this era well but my rough guess is 1936.

Yes, it’s a 1940 but appears to be junior with a sun visor and an aftermarket grille guard.

It looks like a 1938 Six or possibly Eight but more likely the former. 1938 was the only year with a stainless strip running up onto the roof above the center of the windshield and one is barely visible in this photo.

I’ve read that but it hasn’t been my experience as I used to use mine in wet Washington State where I lived when I first started buying Packards. Possibly it would have worked better where dry but it worked well there too. That was just a couple blocks east of where the Microsoft campus is now even though they are in Redmond and I was in Bellevue.

The good thing about the “swamp coolers” is that there is no installation or modifications to the car required and even often sold by the dealers themselves. In other words, there is no change to a car’s originality because they car itself remains as it was.

I had a couple of the floor-type coolers and they worked amazingly well. Unlike the window type, these were electric so had fans to move air even when stopped or in slow traffic.

There was a pump that filtered water down through a mesh in the sides and when air was pulled through it, there was an evaporative cooling effect. It sat on the front hump and had adjustable legs that would be extended down to give it support.

This photo is from eBay but one of mine was identical with map pockets, cup folders and even a bottle opener on the right side!
