1937 Packard Hood Hinge

Posted by Chuck McDonald On 2022/9/2 2:54:30
When your Junior series car 1935 - 1937 has a hood issue because of the horrible design it can be fixed but forming the hood sheet metal back to the original position. I gave Dave Flack a call to discuss before I started and he offered great advise. I have attached two pictures, one picture that shows the correct position of the rear hinge in the hood valley, and one picture of the bent hood lip. You will understand when you actually remove your hood. You will find the sheet metal lip bent straight and that is why the hood rear hinge bracket lip will not hold the hood in place.
My hood now works great but I am going to be extremely gentle from now on opening and closing the hood.
