I must apologize for not getting back to you. I had some medical issues to deal with. Do you still need some photos? There are quite a few unique parts you would need to hunt down to mount supercharger the way the factory did.

This switch also operates the back up lights. But be advised...the headlights or parking lights have to be on in order for the back up lights to operate.

I had the same issue with my 1957 Clipperw wagon. I gVe up trying to paint the centers. I just bought another Clipper set with nice centers.
Was hoping the fellow who makes the decals for the Senior Packard wheel covers would make the Clipper ships wheel decal. No luck there.

Hope your car found a good home...
It must have a very interesting history to tell.
Do you know any of its history?

Saw an advertisement from Dodge or Ram trucks today proclaiming a new feature on their pickup trucks. A self leveling bed! Truely what is old is now new! :)

Hi Randy, you still look the same! Did the young lady become your wife?
Was the 1952 Mayfair the Packard that made you a Packard collector?
I fell in love with a 1941 120 a neighbor owned. It was two tone, sorta tan and brown combo. I'd run down to the street and watch him drive by.

Hi Bigkev,
Sorry, I didn't mean to offend.
I guess the Mayfair Convertible misnomer is very prevalent on the internet.
Guess the internet is similar to paper, it won't move when anything is written on it.

1952 Packard Mayfair
#8

I just finished watching a movie on TCM. It was called "Sudden Fear" starring Joan Crawford, Gloria Graeme, and Jack Palance. It was made in 1952 and featured 1952 Packards. At the end of the film Jack is chasing Joan ( who he thinks is Gloria) trying to run her down with a 1952 Packard 250 Mayfair Convertible. Needless to say his driving was a bit careless, he overcorrects on a turn and smashes the right front fender into a building or wall. Well the headlamp pops out of the fender but is still lit! Did Packard use Autolite headlamps as OEM in 1952? I actually felt pain when he smashed that fender! But the worst is yet to come as he crashes the Packard while finally running over Gloria. Car is on its right side and steam from busted radiator is rising out of the wreckage. Oh well from 1000 Mayfairs Convertibles made in 1952, that leaves 999 left. I don't think I'll watch that movie again.

Did anyone come up with a clip of the Today Show coverage of the last day of Packard production? I m guessing it would've been aired on 7-28-58 ?
As 7-25-58 was a Friday I believe?
My brothers in law and I went out to my garage on 7-25 and drank a toast to my Packard and all Packard's 1899-1958.
