Sounds like a good run, and a nice presentation. Don't stop and the history lesson was great too.
Has your new Packard arrived yet?

Packard run Sunday 9th September

Went on a run today with the Packard Automobile Club Australia. Although the weather looked threatening to start, it cleared to a lovely spring day here down under.

The run was organized by Noel, one of the club members - his is the '39 120 Sedan.

Run started from the McDonald's car park at San Souci then after refreshments proceeded to the National Park at Kurnell, Botany Bay, the site where Captain James Cook landed in 1770 in his voyage of discovery being the first Europeans to sail the east coast of Australia.

Anyway, enough of the history lesson, there is a link below to some photo's of the cars, only 5, which went today.

Note - the red '37 Super 8 only arrived in Australia 2 weeks ago from the US.

I used Tower Paint a few years back to mix me up a couple of cans of Roman Copper Metallic for my 56 MES Caribbean. The paint match was excellent.

Well not much has been going on with the '54. The summer heat is finally here with a vengence. By 10:00am it is already 95 degrees in the garage.

The heat here has been very bad in the last week. On Sunday it was 115, humid as all hell, thunderstorms, and we started the day with a minor earthquake.

It was 104 today. It is supposed to be cooler before the weekend. So I hope I can get into the garage this weekend.

I did manage to find a spare complete dash cluster for my Clipper. The dash cluster and all the gauges are one year only on the '54 Clippers. So finding one in good shape can be a challange. I'm not sure the mechanical condition of the one in my car currently, but I figure for $50, it makes good insurance.

I also made a few inquires to Tower Paint, and they can make me a few rattle cans of Metallic Bikini Blue (the original color of paint for my car) so I can touch up the firewall. The more cans you order, the cheaper the each can is. I think 5 cans was going to run me around $65. Still expensive. But at least it is something I can do in the garage. Why so many cans you ask? Well I want to spray the dash and interior windows mouldings to match. Mine are a little worse for wear and I never really cared for the grayish blue color they came with. So as my car is going to be a driver, I am going to paint them body color.

Brian, you really called it on the weather. I can work up a sweat just walking around. Went to NAPA today for a power steering hose and conv top hoses. NAPA could do neither as they didn't have any fittings that small. I have another place to try tomorrow if I can get away early enough. A friend is stopping by around 1:30 to view my project and to form an opinion on the conv. top bushings. He will probably make them for me. He just wants to see their environment. I ordered new cylinders today from Hydro-electric. The credit card is turning a ghastly shade of blue-green.
Went to the cruise at Nigro's tonight and talked with one of the Stude brothers. Always interesting conversation.
Old grade school friend George was there also and I met a friend of cousin Will's. All in all, a nice evening.

Re: 1948 Overdrive Dash Light Color and Location

I'm trusting my memory here which isn't as sharp as it once was, but I don't believe you need another dash. At the bottom center there should be 3 small light locations, one for the high beams, one for the turn signals, and one for the overdrive.

Different dash I know but on my '47 the O/D light is in the upper right hand corner of the speedometer opposite side to the red high beam light. The O/D light lens is green and is the same size as the high beam indicator.

1948 Overdrive Dash Light Color and Location

We are installing an R-11 Overdrive in a 1948 Super Victoria Convertible. Have the complete unit. The dash should, however, have a light on it showing the overdrive being engaged. Does anyone know where on the dash the light was to be located, and if so, how large and what color it is?

Probably be beyond hope that someone might have a spare dash with the overdrive light for sale, but if so, would like to buy.

Thanks.

There are very few Rollstons on the junior 8 chassis, and those that do exist would qualify as a bona fide Full Classic per CCCA so if you don't get a positive response here, I'd browse the directories of the PAC and CCCA to see if you find a listing. Even if not, there is a chance one of the owners of other 1941 Rollstons might be aware of the car's existance.
