Here's what I did for the 12V bulb conversion:

The 6V bulb numbers are listed in the Owners Manual and Wagner has an interchange chart from 6V to 12v:

I bought brand-name bulbs from Sylvania rather than the cheap imported stuff. Got most on Amazon.

For the taillight bulbs, I bought the bright 50cp 1157 dual filament bulbs from Speedway Motors at $4. Work best through heavy glass lenses.

In addition to Tinman's overall chart here is a list David Grubbs put together specific to a 6v Packards needs with the corresponding bulb for those wanting to do a 12v conversion. Tinman's chart may also provide some other bulb options. Unfortunately, the Don's Bulbs site which is referred to in the second post is no longer operational. http://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/mod ... id=157993#forumpost157993
