VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
 Bought at Hershey in 1988 as a rolling chassis with an engine(no body whatsoever)
Following importation to Australia 
The chassis and engine, brakes, rear end, etc were re-conditioned.
However the chassis and engine then sat for the past 25 years in a dirt floored shed.

Have since discovered it wasn't bought at Hershey, instead it came from the NSW township of Cooma and was a Funeral Car with a Martin & King body. The reason it doesn't now have a body is that the wooden structure fell apart. Although I believe the doors and some other parts are now with a well known Packard collector in Canberra, ACT. This same collector had supplied an R11 Overdrive to the guy who restored the chassis but I didn't see it when I inspected the chassis and engine. Will look harder when I pick up the chassis.
Didn't find any more parts when the chassis was picked up September 2018.
Chassis subsequently sold to a fellow Packard Club of Australia member at the end of March 2019. Picked up on 2nd September 2019. Now in Seaford Vic.
