I wonder if you could get the kink out of the inner cable if you could sleeve that portion with a piece of brake line tubing?? Probably should be a rubber grommet in the firewall where it passes through?? I wonder if somehow something was "grounding" thru the cable housing that caused the corrosion?

I will say to some degree, that Kaiser was always a styling leader in their last years. Only trouble unless Packard would have bought in with them early on, Kaiser was losing sales from 1949 on every year till they ceased car production of the Willys and Kaiser cars in the U.S.

That would be a prefect car for someone then. Make a driver with it to just enjoy.

Being a 2dr it was worth saving. Out of stupidity, which engine does it have? 356?

I didn't know Delco actually made gas gauges and sending units. Both Delco and Autolite were used for starters and ignition systems on Packard.

Not sure what happened after the war, but it seemed all the independents lost market share after the seller's market through roughly 1949. All the independents were pretty much gone by 1958 or earlier.
Without the additional sales of the 6's and Jr. 8's, I doubt Packard would have survived the 30's. Agreed maybe they should have given them a different name than Packard, much like Cadillac had LaSalle.
Kaiser and Willys cars gone by 1956, Nash and Hudson names gone by 1958, Studebaker was in the red by 1954. Packard saved it for a few more years.
What would have happened with Packard had they stayed independent in 1954. I'm not sure they would have still made it out of the 1950's. At least the money they spent on Studebaker might have allowed them to restyle in 1957. We'll never know....
