WANTED Hello I am new to this site. I recently purchased a very nice 1956 Packard 400 and I am trying to locate a clock or one that will donate parts for. Any help will be appreciated as I am new to the Packard family having GM cars all my life. Thanks Gary

G'day Gary(56PKRDGUY),
to PackardInfo, but sorry can't help with your request.

However, I invite you to include your '56 Four Hundred in the Packard Owner's Registry.

There is a 56 senior clock on ebay listed for parts. Pictures are not the best but it looks complete -- although I am not sure where the single small chrome piece in the last photo goes. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Packard-Clock ... :USPSPriority!93727!US!-1

The last image in the eBay ad appears to be a fastener screw for the clock. The clock itself appears to be missing the light bulb socket for illumination, which is detachable and ought to be in your car already.

Well I have a clock guy down in Florida. Said may clock smelled burnt. Went inside said that it cannot be fixed something inside is missing thats why it cannot work.
Guy is real good a friend of mine. He told me to keep a eye on Ebay for a senior clock.

Reaching out to you guys may have a spare clock that could be fixed. Going to Hershey this fall may score one there.

The one on ebay said it came from a bunch of old Cad, Buick and Packard parts and the comment "Nice" is in the description even though he has it listed as parts and no warranty might be what you want. At $22 don't think it is too outrageous.

Hope it works out too. If it doesn't and your guy can't fix one of them at least you will have a core that looks complete. Should be enough to convert to a quartz movement and the original can keep the hole in the car filled while that is done. I had mine converted many years ago.
