In the past I had a number of prewar, 1939, 1940 and 1941 but now I have 1951-1956. I was up to 22 cars for many years but have only 7 now, four of which are Packards. I actually donít live here but family does and this is where my shop is located. I come up every couple months for two or three weeks and this time Iím leaving in two days.

Big John: I looked and found a left, which works for the passenger, but not the driver. Also found the moulds, don't know if the gentleman is still in business. take a look at the pictures and let me know if you would like me to spend more time investigating.

Thanks to all who responded.

Yesterday, I had success in tightening the sidemount mirrors on my 1941 Packard 180 Touring Sedan.

After studying the situation carefully, I found that the brass ball on the top of each sidemount post actually screws onto the post .. and that the brass balls were not tight. Consequently, I proceeded to tighten each mirror snugly (not firm) and then turned the whole mirror assembly in a clockwise manner until they were tight on the ball and would turn no more. Then I loosened the mirrors a tad and moved the mirror into final position, and then firmly tightened the mirrors against the ball. Yay! Done.

If anyone has questions, please let me know. JOHN in Bend, Oregon

Yesterday, I was finally able to tighten my two sidemount mirrors (see separate post). While I think the mirrors that you have are MUCH better, I am happy now with mine. Consequently, I don't need you to continue with any further research. Truly appreciate your help with this matter. If anything changes, I will let you know.
