No I haven't look in either of those places to be honest.
Nothing in the past that I've browsed through showed the rear window shade so never thought to double check.
I'll get on that right away.
When you say "The vertical cord that controls the bottom rod is terminated below with a small upholstered button" I'm assuming that there are 2 buttons, one on each side of the window. Are they mounted on the rear package tray or on the interior wall of the cabin ? That's probably an answer for tomorrow as well. In the meantime, I'll get started looking where you suggested.
Thanks again for all your time today.

Yes, two buttons, one on each side. But remember, I have a sedan and they don't have a package shelf, so details on a coupe may well be different.

Ahhh yes, of course that would be the case wouldn't it. Or maybe they hooked right to the back of the cab on either side of the window. Hope I find that answer in the direction you've pointed me. Will advise.

Why not contact Richard Lambert down in Florida, he just bought a lovely 1101 coupe and has been on here regularly lately.

In this illustration from the 1934 Eight showroom catalog you can see the curtain pull and the vertical restraining cords and lower upholstered retaining buttons as used in the sedan. The cords originate above the upholstery "flap" and I'm not going to pull mine apart to see the details of where and how they are attached. Left click to enlarge.

If you still want pictures of mine (sedan), let me know but we agree the coupe is constructed differently.

Good morning Owen. Thank you for the picture from the Showroom Catalogue, but the copy that Iím seeing doesnít show a curtain or any of the details you mentioned. Iíll try to find that catalog myself and see the image you are telling me about. At least I know there is something out there that will help with my quest. Thank you ! And no, I certainly would not ask you to pull yours apart for any reason . As always youíve been extremely helpful and I appreciate it very much.
Best Regards,
TomB

Sorry, not the greatest pictures - should have moved the car outside. But on the rear quarter window you can see a lot better what's barely visible in the showroom catalog illustrations. You can see the shade itself with the pull-tab, and the cords on both sides with the termination at the little button. Rear window essentially the same. If you think better pictures would be helpful, I'll have the car out next weekend and will take pix outdoors in daylight.

Owen, these latest pictures are excellent and certainly shed light on a lot of my questions. Thanks very much !
I havenít found anything in the brochures really germane to my specific needs, but I havenít exhausted the possibilities yet. Also a fellow member of the Nor Cal Packard Club just bought a beautiful Ď34 4-door sedan and it has the same window treatment as yours ! Between your help and his new (last week) purchase, Iím a heck of a lot closer to finding the answers to my questions than when I started. Now Iím going to try and reach Mr Lambert
as you suggested earlier.
Have a great weekend and many thanks for all the footwork, and suggestions.
Regards,
Tom
