If I was in the same situation I would put a 288 in it. It won't have the low end, but the engine mounting is the same design and parts are plentiful. Packard was going downhill with everybody else because you could pull one of the earlier cars out of a swamp and they would run. Not as good as low mileage, but they would go down the road if you didn't beat on them.
Of course, I'm not interested in driving those things more than 45-50 mph given every time I read about a celebrity millionaire dying in a car wreck I know they are driving some big dinosaur and not a little Honda Fit.
One of the Banachek cars had a Chrysler flathead in it.
