52 200 Deluxe Touring Re-Rebuild!
#21

I had this ready to paint when my neighbors 100 ft tall (was) tree fell on it. You can't see to much from the rear, but the top, hood, and both front fenders were severely damaged. I bought a 51 to replace it, was going to rob necessary parts from the 52 as the mechanical is all done. I am having trouble parting with the 52 though. I may just keep both and take my time rebuilding the 52.

I haven't had this on my Packard. I ran into this on several other vehicles. On Ford trucks we would replace all of the ground cables and clean the connection spots on the chassis and frame. Worked every time on Fords. On Mopars we would check the timing. They will run great with lots of power. When you turn them off sometimes they will not start until they are cooled off-especially in the warmer weather. Just a couple of ideas.

Correct paint for frame and chassis on a 52 Deluxe 200

I am getting ready to start on what I hope will be a frame-off restoration on my 52 Deluxe 200. From what I can tell the frame uses a special black frame paint like I would get from Eastwood. What about the chassis? Can I use the same paint or is the color and/or texture different. I have never done a total frame-off before. All help appreciated. Thanks, Tracy.

What should it cost to have all of the chrome re-chromed?

The chrome on my 52 200 needs redone. For most part it is still intact, just dulled through the years! The only places I see that will need additional work are one of the headlight bezels and one of the bumper guards-chrome had disappeared and rust is showing. We are in Omaha, Nebraska. There are several good plating companies here.

We are talking about both bumpers, the grille, hood ornament, headlight bezels, trunk ornament, and the 6 decorations on the rear fender whatever they are called-3 on each side.
I may try to get this done over the winter-just need to schedule finances, Thanks, Tracy.

You're right Larry. I wanted to put on 235/75r15s but they wouldn't fit. The 215's fit but I have to jack up the car even without the skirts!

Rust sealer-treatment
#28

I have a 52 200 Deluxe. It has surface rust on the trunk floor and the passenger compartment floor, but no holes. I have seen the Rustseal products that you just remove the loose rust and paint right over the rest. It is supposed to seal and strengthen (?) the area. Has anyone used this stuff-and if so, what is your take on it? Thanks, Tracy.

Re: 52 Packard 200 with a negative ground

The heater fan motor was just loose wires. The temp sender is a sending unit. I haven't had a good chance to look at the radio yet. I may leave the negative ground that way. It is charging and starting.

I ended up getting a set of H75/215s.
