VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Sold 2nd May 1941 by Reynold & Johnson Co Oakland California. Early history to 1960 is unknown until it was bought by a dental student in San Francisco from it's former lady owner. Shortly thereafter he drove it to Boise Idaho and his ownership continued until late 2006. Next owner planned to Hot Rod the Coupe, but his changed priorities saw it sold on eBay early July '07 to myself. I inspected Coupe late July '07, then it was shipped to California from where it was sea-freighted to Newcastle Australia. After unloading and customs and quarantine inspections and clearances, shipped to Sydney by tilt bed truck. Underwent a mechanical restoration between Dec'07 and Jan '09 of suspension, steering, brakes and new wiring harness and much more. Motor, trans and rear end are OK although I am sourcing another engine to re-build at which time the trans, clutch, etc will also be overhauled. Now on full New South Wales registration because Historic vehicle registration is too restrictive. Still some work to do which will be done over the next few months. Read ALL about the Coupe and much, much more on my Project Blog here on Packardinfo - [url=http://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=319&forum=10]Mal's 41 120 Coupe[/url] Although another block and crank was obtained I decided to rebuild the original engine which was done Dec'09 to May'10 being resleeved(it was about 0.090" over!) new pistons, piston pins, rings, main, big-end & cam bearings, block hot tanked, oil pump rebuilt, hardened exhaust valve seats, 'k' liners inserted in valve guides, new valves, block and head surfaced, as well as rebuilt clutch pressure plate and new clutch plate,  fully balanced, and much more. Well worth the work and the COST! Overdrive overhauled Aug'10 with planterary gears replaced and OD wiring glitch fixed. Since then have been on a Rally to Tamworth, about 600 miles all up and a National Rally to Kangaroo Island, about 2,260 miles all with no major problems just little nigglley things. Since the Mal's 41 Club Coupe Blog finished any further happenings with the Coupe are documented in the [url=http://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=2179&forum=10]Wades Workshop Blog[/url] along with lots and lots and LOTS of other Packard goings on!
Sadly the Coupe was SOLD on 26th October 2017, with the new owner being FrankB of Cowra NSW Australia. Mal(Ozstatman) 28th October 2017
