VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Purchased by me years ago in Cheshire Masachusetts, perhaps 1973 ,I have registered the car and taken it to shows and cruises from time to time.  I have not had it running in several years and have it at present in storage in a dry cement flored barn without heat.  I have no interst in selling the car but now that I have restored several cars in my collection, I am planning to put time effort and money into it.  I placed oil down each cylinder upon storage but worry if it will turn over OK.  If need be I will have engine rebuilt and I understand Kanter Brothers in Boontown, New Jersey have the parts I need.  Brakes may also need attention although worked fine when I put ti away.  I imagine it may need wheel cylinders rebuilt and the like.  It has standard windows, Ultramatic, load leveling, power brakes but no power steering, radio, fender skirts ect
Custom Modifications
Modification Categories:
Modification Detail:
Other than the wrong upholstery and an old restorative paint job done in close to factory Packard blue and white colors but apparent GM colors very close to original I know of no modifications made . The automatic transmission was working fine when I put the car away but Iworry that gaskets and seals might be shot from sitting around.  I believe the transmission was rebuilt before I bought the car in 1973.
