Leeedy, I don't have a photo of the VN plate of the ex-Randy Berger 1956 convertible handy, but the particulars are:

VN #5699-1164
Theft-proof #D33933
Utica Motor # C1339
Utica Trans # C1004

The transmission # is clearly out of place, perhaps a replacement from a very early Caribbean; based on data from other 1956 Caribbeans I would have expected a transmission number between C1200 and C1400.

Next Project is to clean and re-grease the column shifter. Thursday morning at 30 deg F it was very sticky. I hope it was just the old grease gunking up the smooth operation.

How do I remove the rod inside this shaft? Do I have to remove the plug at the top of the shaft?

It seems like 2 and 3 selector was moving well, but 1 and R was sticky and balky.
Thanks!

I have been moving parts from his home to mine will soon have car moved from storage. Some trim parts are missing due to fact where he worked on his projects the owner died and property was sold.
I hope Mal can update registry to reflect change but it will still be Randy's Caribbean to me . I may have to start wearing black.
Thanks in advance for help I will need and wish me luck


Pretty Caribbean. Looks likesomeone has done a nice job so far.

It would be nice to see a photo of the serial plate.

Also, on a VMV Caribbean, why are the wheels blue?

Good luck with it.

54 Packard 359 Head / Edmunds /r epair

That polished head is wicked cool. That will be my next project. Does anyone know if that Edmunds Packard head on various forums a while back was in fact for a 359? I attached some pictures including a head that is for sale out there. That head looks like it has about $500 in damage if you look at the crumbled areas. I guess that can be welded? Another cost would be $700 for pressure test plates. The plates can be used to stress the block, honing and applying a sealer no?

I'm glad I got my seals when I did then. Looks like I had only a week to spare before they closed. I wonder what's going to happen to all the parts they have? I'll gladly assume possession of any leftover '51-54 parts!

Did your tires pick up any blemishes when you had them mounted? I ask because I'm probably going to have mine unmounted and remounted at some point later when I get around to sandblasting the wheels. Still need to find two more Packard wheels though...

It's interesting to see how the statistical percentages change and shift as more and more cars are added to the Registry.
