Just thought I would start a thread to post the Club Project lists for anyone that may be interested in ordering some of the repro parts that the various PI and PAC produce. To start it off, here is the most recent one from the PI San Diego Chapter. I ordered my '54 Door retainer clips from them (fits 51-56), and also just ordered a license plate frame from them. If anyone else has copies of the other Chapters project sheets, then please send them along and I will get those posted.

Thanks

On the Motor City Packard projects I want to let you know that we are now SOLD OUT of the 3003 light bulbs used in the 1933 and 1934 Packards.

Our run was for just 1000 light bulbs and we are holding a handful back in case we have any warranty requests over the next few months. Before we reproduced this bulb they were selling at swap meets and eBay for about $200 apiece. We were selling them for $40 each. All proceeds were donated to the Packard Motor Car Foundation to be used in the preservation of the Packard Proving Grounds.

Earlier I said "we" when in actuality this project was the brainchild of Bruce Blevins (Mr. 1933) of Blevin's Screw Products. He could have done this as his own personal project as he sells a complete line of stainless steel replacement parts for 1933 and 1934 Packards. However, he spearheaded this project for MCP and requested the profits go to the PPG. Thank you Bruce.

And MUCH more, Roger. I can recall seeing them go for $350 each. Anyone with a 33/34 Packard or Cadillac that didn't buy bulbs when available surely missed an opportunity - I had a few extra OEM bulbs and probably would have never needed more but bought a pair very early on just to support the project.

Yes, it's the unique triple-filament bulb used in 33/34 Packard and Cadillac.

EDIT: The headlamp lenses were also unique, left to right, and the 3 positions headlamp switch positions were called [from the 34 owner's manual] (1) tilt lamps, (2) left-hand tilt and right-hand curb, and (3) bright headlights. A popular accessory of the period was the bulb kit, the one pictured came with my 34 and has an extra 3003 bulb.

Yes, the 3003 headlight bulb was unique to 1933 and 1934 Packards. Very technically, the buld was nearly identical for the 1932 and 1933 Cadillacs and they called it a 3001 bulb. Difference was in the distance from the plane of the 3 lead contact points to the pins sticking out on the side of the bulb. With some minor modification the 3003 bulb could be filed down to fit the 3001 socket.

There are 3 filaments: (1) city lights (2) low beam and (3) high beam.

Attached is a photo of the bulb we used to sell. Notice the bulb has ridges much like that of a beehive - it is not a smooth bulb.

If your 3003 sockets are rusted or damaged, then you should contact Bruce Blevins as he manufactures replacement parts.

For you 1938 Senior car folks and 1939 12 owners we are almost out of the shock cover sets also. We do plan on re ordering this project but there may be a delay in the re supply. If you are in a short timeframe in your restoration you may want to condider ordering soon.

Thanks Joel for reminding me about the shock cover. This is an exclusive project to Motor City Packards and this part has been approved by PAC Technical. For one low price you get 2 shock covers and all the required mounting hardware. The metal hardware has been nitrite coated in black to prevent rusting and will not need to be painted.

Don't lose judging points needleesly because you overlooked this part on your restoration. Many 1938 and 1939 cars lack this part because the original part got hard and disintegrated and you may not know it should actually be there. You need to check your car.

Attached is a photo of an installed cover on a 1938 Brunn bodied V-12, Landalet that won it's class at the Meadow Brook Concours in 2009.
