Good Afternoon...I'll bet Kantor and Max will have them. Max had one for our 49 Deluxe not too long ago...It looked like it was new. Plugged right in and works great. Ernie in Arizona

I'm just not understanding why the 1951-1954 Packard Automobiles are shown such disrespect? Can someone enlighten me please. The only comment Dolores made when we were shopping for a Packard...I wanted a 1929 or so and she a 1949-50. She said 'The 51-54 cars look too much like Chevys'. As you might expect, our 1949 'Miss Prudence' is just what Dolores wanted! She is a good girl! Go figure! Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning...Since quite a bit has been updated/moved/changed, I would check to see if the rotor goes around when you crank the engine. I spent a rough morning once before I realized that the slot on the bottom of the distributor shaft was not engaged at the bottom. Uttered many bad words! Ernie in Arizona

Good Evening JD in KC. What have your Packards been up to. Hopefully you didn't sell them! Ernie in Arizona

Well...For us up north who feel that we know you well...This is a bummer of the first order...We'll just have to find a way to tempt you into another Packard of some sort...Miss Prudence has a tear in her eye! Ernie in Arizona.

Good afternoon... Miss Prudence went to the Auto Parts Store for a new oil filter (usually a special order) for her annual Oil Change and Lube job at Kelley's Automotive in Fountain Hills tomorrow afternoon. She also went to ACE Hardware for a clamp to stop a rattle in the tail pipe area...I think. We'll see when we lift her up tomorrow. Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning...When we purchased our 1949 Deluxe, she was damn hard to start...we cleaned and tightened all of the connections, put new 00 (double naught) battery cables and added a second ground cable to the frame. We also added a fresh battery with 800 cranking amps and new plug wires. Cleaned the points, cleaned the tip of the rotor, cleaned the contactor on top of the rotor, cleaned the little tit on the inside of the distributor cap, cleaned the tips inside the distributor cap, changed condenser, plugs and coil and the old girl fired right up. The proper thick battery cables made quite a difference. She came to us with a wimpy battery and even wimpier battery cables from maybe a Pinto or some such! My wife sprinkled a little bit of Holly Water on the Radiator! Today, we run 87 octane fuel and use Marvel Mystery Oil in the fuel, according to the instructions on the bottle. She'll fire up and you will love her. Ernie in Arizona
