I'd be curious to know what you do to this motor before reassembling it. Hone or bore out cylinders? Sand the head to remove rust? Pull and replace the studs?`

Always puzzled when I see an engine that has been sitting around opened up....

Not meaning to deflect this thread, but you might want to join the Packard club, which should help you find qualified help in your area.

Get to know the Packard people in your area; they can point you to specialist mechanics and local vendors--as well as who to avoid....

When did self adjusting (meaning back up and hit the brakes) brakes arrive for Packards?

To my old and fuzzy eyes the middle pic shows a warped door. I'll be very interested to see the solution and how you got there. Both my fronts stick out, particularly towards the bottom at the B pillar yet seem fine up top and in front. Can't visualize a striker adjustment doing the trick.

Please remember to post your results!

Any warpage?

Similar on my car but doors seem slightly warped. Have a hard time not asking my youngest (6'7" 232 lbs) to grip here and pull until I say stop.....

At a casual glance, they look very similar if not identical.

Has anyone measured the differences?

Wish I could!

between a new trans, carburetor, gas tank, rear wheel bearings and adjustments, I'm tapped out!

On the other hand, the car has never been so nice to drive.

Keep spending; you can do it!

Lots of interest in the Packard. It is for sale; although I am taking a conservative approach to the marketing. I have not advertised it yet. Just now getting the word out.


Looks very nice. What kind of dollars are involved?

The dual vendor policy always seemed to me to be a hedge; if one couldn't supply product the other was probably available.

FWIW unless you are a good mechanic, have it rebuilt by an expert. I had mine done locally by someone who nearly killed it. A better rebuild was important--at least in my case.

Ordered the complete kit for mine last week. Will report on the installation when it is in.

Replacing due to a failure of the intake tube; seemed advisable to go new. Quote for cutting old one in two and redoing was $ 1,000... Uff da

I do wish they had set it up with modern nozzle gripper--I understand that it is same as original so you have to hold nozzle while it fills.
