1936 and 1937 120's Are what we like best. But we also like all other Packards too.

Sorry I put this post in the wrong forum. It was supposed to be in Pre War. No intentions of selling this one.

I remember seeing pictures of a 120A Covertible coupe that had the step placements like in the picture.( from the front of the right side rear fender) It was short lived and sometime in 1935 they switched to the more typical locations. My son had a 1935 Sport coupe that had the same step locations as the Yellow Convertible and also my 1937 120C sport Coupe.

Here are some new sill plates I waited patiently for 15 months for. There are two sets here, one set for the 37 138CD Limo and the other set for my 1937 120CD Sport Coupe. the coupe and the limos front doors share the same length sill plates. Worth the wait...............

The side view picture clearly shows where the 4 die cast chrome pieces are missing. 37 120's are my forte. A speedometer dash section on a 115 does not have the chrome piece on each side of it. I stand on it being a 120. The 6 cylinder in the description is just a typo.

Guys Hate to be a killjoy but the 37 Club Sedan screams 120 to me. The hood has the four chrome cutouts. T he 115 only has one. The 115 dash is pretty much void of chrome and that dash has lots.

It's been a long time since I have posted on the Limo project. But here is an update.

It is currently in the paint body and paint shop. It is going from the Packard Blue to the Regatta Blue. After the car is painted I will tackle the Interior. The chauffeur
compartment from the black leather interior to a dark blue leather. and the bland tan cloth rear compartment to a semi dark blue cloth.

Here is what I have done to the car so far.


Repaired the frame back to original

Had a 1092 trunk floor welded in to fix where a rectangle hole was caused by a leaky battery

Changed the drive train back to original

Rebuilt a 282 motor (runs fine)

Converted a 1954 3 speed overdrive transmission to floor shift. (Still need a few parts to make that fully functional)

New wiring harness (Rhode Island)

New Sill Plates

All new glass

New reproduction Gear shift knob, battery box, fuel sending unit, hubcaps, trim rings, running board trim, Juliano's top insert. Waldron SS exhaust.

7 wheels powder coated to match the body color

Rebuilt thermostat for grille (works great).

Wood-grained my dash and senior & 120CD door trim in my shop. (Was redone 10 times to a very close to original finish. I used a 120 under the the removed chrome dash piece to match it.)

I am keeping the car 6 volt. (see how that goes)

Here are some pictures of the wood-graining. I did not think it was too bad a job. The company I got the equipment from made it difficult as I had to change the base paint color to get the best results.

Dash Carpathian Burl Elm

Window moldings Straight Grain

Senior-120CD door trim both of the above was used.

Here is a couple of pictures of two 1937 air scoops. The grey one I am reworking. and the reddish one is of an original one showing the one of the three bolting location nut plates. I have two or three of these scoops laying around. My 1090 has one installed and one is for my 1937 120CD Sport Coupe.
