Re: Interchangeability 1941. 110 & 120

The 110, 120, and 1903 160 use the same body, so the seats should work. But as stated earlier, coupes use folding backrests, sedans a fixed backrest. 1942 non-Clippers in the same series (2000, 2001, 2003) also use the same body.

two faced foam acrylic mounting tape may let you attach this. You'd need a thinner type than typically used for bodyside moldings. 3M supplies it industrially

tight fit with the accessory mirror, spotlight, and hood opening. The width of the belt molding is a known - you could come very close on spacing by using it as a scale in the photo.

My 41 has what is I believe a 40 antenna mount - similar shape to the 41 but different mast connection. It is mounted 5.5" below the belt molding, measured along the line of the antenna mast (not vertically) if that helps

Actually I think Packard Electric and the Packard Motor Car Company were both founded by the Packard brothers in Warren. The electrical component company was later sold, becoming part of GM and Delphi later

Re: paint colors 1940

In general, Packard in this era used metallics with fine flake,so I am sceptical of a pearlescent being an accurate match. Pearlescents normally use mica - the light reflection is not at all the same. In looking for a modern match, look for small size aluminum flake and not too much of it. A previous owner painted my 41 his version of Laguna Maroon (I think that's the 41 color too), and the flake is about right, but the color is I think a bit light, more like the ads and showroom book. I think it's a GM color.

Do not use an old chip and a spectrophotometer if you expect accuracy.
I'm not adverse to the technology, quite the opposite.But the chip, if it ever matched real paint, is unlikely to now, and spectro is confused by reflection from the aluminum.

The Capri/Miata question comes a bit out of the blue. And while Ford and Mazda had a partnership for a while, the answer is essentially no. The Miata was designed in Japan with a backbone frame and rear-wheel drive. The Capri (I assume you're talking about the Australian-designed two seat version) had a turbo but was front wheel drive and much more conventional for the time. The Capri's handling was no match for the NA Miata.

are the Darrin fenders the same? Check if different stainless strips needed.

I can't say for 100% that it had never been repainted, but traces of sound deadening and flock were still there. Packard did not in general do fancy trunk trimming on Juniors.

The front floor still has the rubber mat, not carpet.
