Re: "Concourse" vs. "Concours"

One has merely to look in a dictionary. Concours (con-cor) is the French version of the English concourse. Both are the same. A concourse is a large area for people to move around in, or a large area for exhibitions outdoors. Concours d'Elegance (con cor della gaw) is simply an elegant concourse. Why we don't use the American or English usage is probably due to the fact that Americans have no idea what the French version is. The French version also sounds more aristocratic.

Modern material oil pan gaskets for Packards are made by Best Gasket. They are available from Packard parts suppliers.

PACKARD NEWS is the only one published. It was mainly for dealers and management.

DO NOT LUBRICATE the Watt's Linkage bushings! They are not supposed to be lubricated. There is no mention in any Packard literature of these being lubricated!

Hi Howard: Thanks for your comments. The problem with making the front bushings with polyurethane is that the poly will not adhere properly to the metal shells. It therefore will be useless because it will not absorb rotational forces, or in other words, it will not resist the up and down movement of the front suspension a-arms, or jounce and rebound. Using original type rubber bushings will work well, IF the exposed areas of the rubber are coated with liquid Neoprene (Permatex brand "Liquid Electrical Tape." Using my new poly bushings in the rear solves the ride height problem, and other problems such as "swimming," although all of the bushings, front and rear, must be in excellent condition to avoid swimming. I recommend a complete overhaul of the Torsion Level suspension, including replacement of all F&R bushings, Watts Linkage bushings and new KYB shocks. If only part is done, the results will be unsatisfactory. Torque specs are included with the suspension bushing kits I sell. Dwight Heinmuller

The polyurethane is not more "rigid" than rubber. It has the same Durometer (hardness) value as rubber. The difference between the two is "compression set." Poly is more resistant to compression than rubber, and will, therefore, hold it's shape far longer. Dwight Heinmuller

The 1953 Custom Packard Patrician in Costa Rica is a "Tribute to Otilio Ulate Blanco, President of Costa Rica 1949-1953."

Hi West: I am not certain, but I think this '53 Patrician custom was built for the president of Costa Rica in about 1953/54, or perhaps later. It was not built to a Packard design, but simply custom made there. The 127" wb was extended about 11", the plastic roof added, along with other features added or modified. There appears to very little rear leg room.
