Remove zerc, drill out old waxy grease (by hand), install new zerc, and grease. If need be, heat with heat gun. PB

'56 Executive is a 12K car at best (after a satisfactory road test). Cobbled up shift pod, non factory brake booster/pedal setup. Is the firewall reinforced? Manual windows and seat. Might have been a non-radio car, there is no sign of antenna anywhere. Right antenna bezel on dash is where rear speaker control should be. i believe color is paint code "D", Norwegian Forest Metallic. When that color got faded out it took on a bluish hue. Looks like
a bunch of shade tree work was done. PB

"56 Panama looks good @ 12K. Might not be original engine. Maybe someone just swapped rocker covers. I wonder how much bondo is under the paint.

'56 Clipper Deluxe and Super 352's with 2V carbs used a Carter 2393S. I've rebuilt them on both models. '56 Customs and Executives with 352 engine use Carter WCFB 4bbl.

That's a '55 bumper on that '56. or '56 fenders on a '55. The '56 Clipper for cheap?

Port and polish is your best bet. Packard engineers designed those straight eights for low-end and smoooothness. Without a proper bump stick, adding a second carb will barely give you a "seat of the pants" feel. Mostly just burn a little more gas. Custom grind a cam with say, 9* or 10* overlap, so it idles decent, but, as was said earlier, you have to be careful with lift due to valve/head clearance. Then, a second carb adds breatheability and rpms.
Ed Macauley had his 160 convertible fitted with 2-2bbls, but, different engine. I believe that car is still around, but I can't comment on the performance.
I believe in "make it your own", so go ahead add the Edmunds stuff. It'll look cool.

HPH, new member (long time lurker) here.
I know the 320 was original eng for '55 Deluxe but since you have the 5640 engine, I would stick with that since neither is numbers matching. The '56 352 heads were better (bigger valves and better flow)and if I remember cams were different. Also, many moons ago I read where the Hudson and Nash engine were de-rated from the Packard. If the 5640 eng has the 2394 WCFB carb I would definitely rebuild that eng. I would still rebuild it with the 2393S 2bbl. over the 320 (and round up a 4bbl manifold and carb). 275 hp vs 240? Much better driveability. Do the Olds pump mod.
