Re: windshield storage

I purchased a new windshield for my 1957 Packard some years back.
The new windshield is stored in its shipping box which is constructed of a heavy gauge cardboard. Inside the box the windshield is supported in two cardboard cross pieces, notched to accept the glass in a vertical position.
Hopefully the new windshield will be installed this spring or summer.

Re: Radio Delete

I guess it would've been the original purchasers choice by cost or preference.
As I said previously, my Dad never opted for a radio in nearly every new car he purchased. His last new car was a 1967 Chevrolet and that's the only one that had a radio. He bought that car off the lot and radio was already installed from the factory. I guess he could've made the dealer take the radio out but,as the Chevy dealer was one of his pals, I guess he didn't want to be a PIA.
I to would leave the radio in the box rather than risk messing up something under the dash.
Don't want to let that smoke out of those wires!

Radio Delete

I was just perusing eBay and noticed a ad for a 1955 Clipper sedan being parted out. Interesting photo of a pretty decent looking dashboard caught my eye. Car came equipped with automatic transmission and clock, but no radio. Has the radio delete panel in place. I don't remember coming by a Packard or Clipper without a radio. Could be since the car is in Iowa there may have been a lack of a strong radio signal where the car was sold?
Or the original purchaser didn't want a radio sorta like my Dad who always had radio delete, just a distraction he would say.

Hi, Denny,
Thank you for the update! Glad you and the Packard are ok.
Amazing you came across the chassis and torsion bar blueprints.
Glad to hear about your renewed interest in continuing your project.
Would love to see additional photos if you get a chance. Thanks again and hope to hear from you again.

Bill

I did this job on a 1941 model a few years back. A very uncomfortable job but very pleasing when done.
And yes, highly recommend replacing the wiring harness! I replaced the entire harness from headlamps to tail lamps.
We don't need the smoke being let out of those old wires!

Re: Packard Dealer Tags/Frames?

I had one for my Packard from Ed Roth & Son our local Packard dealer in Glassboro NJ. It was a complete frame type.
He also sold MG and I put the frame on my MGB-GT and like a dummy, I left it on the car when I sold it to a fellow in Newport RI.
Been looking for another for years.

One wrong move of that hose assembly would result in some nasty body damage!

Dug back into the archives here on the forum. Thanks to Howard's leads.
Found the posts and project photos of the 1957 Packard Four Hundred and Black Bess.
There hasn't been any recent posts I could find since 2013. Seems Denny had sublet his building to the State of Pennsylvania for a staging area for a highway project. The road project should be done by now I would hope.
I PMed Denny to see if there has been any progress or new photos.
I will let us know if I receive a response.
