Gerd,

I think that car production as a whole was halted around January/February 1942.




Mal, yes, that clinched the matter. Thanks.

Let the ride decide, thanks again for the linked content.

...It is interesting the compressor has a casting date of March 1945. Wonder if the compressor was an off the shelf refrigeration item that was made to go into a commercial refrigerator of the time or a service replacement item made for Packard (and maybe Cadillac) parts stock. Either way it would be nice to find a few of them laying around.


Howard, I second the assumption, that this compressor was intended to be installed into something else. Maybe a maritime application? Which kind of compressors are in the PT-boats?

No Mal, rather a stroke of genius to mention the flat-earth-theory, which originates from using torsion level. But in view of the condition of high-speed streets in my home country, the GDR party barons propagandized the jackhammer dance to flatten the globe (image attached).

Let the ride decide, two repentant sinners bag your pardon on bended knees. Here we go -> https://vimeo.com/281386084

Yes, I am flirting with the idea of getting a complimentary copy of the A/C book for Howard (HH56).
