Re: V8 engine castings

I was wondering the same thing as BigKev. Was there an obligation to produce parts for a period of time after Packard production was ceased? The Studebaker Packard Corporation was still limping along.

Re: PCV Anyone?

I do not know if this is what you are looking for, but I had a 56 Clipper that had the downdraft tube plugged with a cork. The downdraft tube was tapped by the valley pan and a hose went to a oil recovery canister with a filter. Then from the canister another hose went to a plate that was between the manifold and the carburetor. I was told that it was to help your gas milage, on the theory that it would burn more of the vapors or something along those lines. It was also referred as an early PCV valve. I believe the unit was an oildex or something like that. It was a green canister. I can not find a picture of it, and the guy I sold the car to took it off.

Is it the car on the cover and inside of the 55 brochure?

www.packardinfo.com/xoops/html ... 5_2GreatLinesBrochure.pdf

It can not be the one pictured in the brochure. The pictures show electric windows. Allison car is manual windows.

If you look on page 18 is there 2 cars or one that is constantly being updated? The top 2 pictures show the stainless trim, but the electric windows picture does not.

Do the cars on page 6 look like they have 1951 hubcaps with cloisonne centers?

Look at Packard Service Technical Bulletin 55T-33, Dealer 24, July 14, 1955. The subject is service engines 55th series.......3 3/16" bore have casting numbers 446521...4" bore 440275.

also look at Service Counselor vol 29, no 5 May 1955, page 29 engine numbers.

I have not found reference to the 4 1/8" bore

Ross,

Have seen the red truck at PAC meets. You do nice work. I had always thought about doing a 56 Clipper truck. Can the rear glass be used as the back glass. Inverted (con-cave)like a El Camino, or would that take too much space?

What is he asking for it?

It is interesting, to me, that there are still Caribbeans out there yet to be brought back.

How much would it take to get the one in MI like the one in the sylvester auction in KS? Maybe that is the reason that they have not all been brought back.

Guscha,
I like HH56 saw the sign, but as has been discussed usually see it with a Packard sign when other period pictures are shown.

All of the show chassis I have seen picture of, including the 1956 Dallas show one, and in person at the PPG (2006 PAC meet) have been senior cars. Learn something new all the time.

Are there any other pictures from that Life magazine?

Greendragon, no grips on the steering wheel, and chrome valve covers, good eye!

The 55 & 56 Caribbean convertible tops had the middle color as a liner. Look in the 55-56 parts book page 278, group 31.4744. Also look at 31.0625.

I always wonder what the non-standard paint code convertibles had for their liner.

I talked to Eric Haartz at one of the PAC national meets. I showed him pieces of an original top. It is a fine cloth weave, not like what Haartz makes now.

I assume that it is a Clipper since I can only see one muffler, not dual exhaust. The air cleaner looks like a Packard, the tires are wide white walls are on both sides. I can not tell if the horn button is a Clipper or Packard.

There is an Esquire on the PAC website in the 56 photo's.

www.packardclub.org

It may belong to George Hamlin. That is the only one listed in the PAC membership directory.

I sort of remember something about it in the Baltimore PAC National meet directory.
