The bottom of the car must have been sitting right on the ground judging by the rust through in the gas tank. I can't see any place that can be used as a starting point (maybe the glass). does anybody feel that a complete restoration will cost less than what the car is worth?

Thanks Fred. 42 psi will probably make my martini "shaken not stirred".

"I was told to keep the air pressure at 42. So, I put on the steel valves and was very pleased. The tires rarely need additional air. I will start using them for all my cars!!"

Rscott77x,
I'm curious who suggested the 42 PSI? Is it to make the steering easier, if so, does the 42 PSI refer to the front tires only? Or, what advantage do you find running 42 PSI in all four tires it would make my cars feel like it is running over railroad ties I use 32 psi as it is.

both my Series 24 and 26 (1951 and 1953) packards have had tubeless Coker tires for the last 20 years. I used steel valve stems when the tires were first mounted and they are still in service. Hope this helps.

Hello NDpacMan,
If what you have described is all the information you have about the car I'm pretty sure your ?'s are unanswerable. About the only way you'll get info is to trace/contact prior owners. There might be receipts,notes supplied with the car to at least get you to the last owner.
Perhaps someone else has a few suggestions. Hope this helps.

Regards
Steve
