'56 Clipper 352 cu. in. pushrods needed!

Good Morning Fellow Packardites!

I'm looking for 3 good used 352 cu. in. pushrods for our '56 Clipper. I've spoken with Bob at Bobspackard@aol. He has them, but is hosting the Henry Joy tour and hasn't gotten back to me after 2 1/2 weeks.
I'll buy them new if I have to, but I'm liking the price of used better.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'd like to get the engine back together and running sooner rather than later.
Feel free to pm me also!

Good Morning Fellow Packardites,

I'm looking to find a cross reference table from bias to radial tires, and recommended vendors for my '48 Touring Sedan.
Yes, I realize they are tube type. Any and all suggestions appreciated!

Good for you Corey! Full speed ahead. Who knows, get as much as you can,do done and go from there. Maybe someone will need a car with the things you've done and buy it or trade you another Packard. Well meaning opinions CAN be discouraging, but I say go with what feels right for you. We ARE here and willing to help you!

Fellow Packardites,
We are all in agreement that my young Grasshopper's 110 has a body that REALLY requires a different, less rusted out replacement. Getting the body off and cleaning up the frame is his next step. This is a long term project for him and a better body may come along later. The frame looks to be alright, so perhaps getting the mechanical straight is what we should concentrate on assisting him with. We all love his enthusiasm.

Greetings Fellow Packardites!

I'm happy that so many of us have great advice for my young Grasshopper Corey!
I am in full agreement with Flackmaster about the costs of restoring a beloved Packard. However, please bear in mind that Corey is still in high school and sums of money like the $13,500 for the nice 110 in the Cormorant are not in his realm of possibility.
I applaud all of our efforts in assisting Corey in bringing his 110 back from the grave. I too agree that you should take up Flackmaster on his transmission offer Corey, especially since he is located not far from you in Utica!
I remember myself back in high school climbing down ravines to harvest useable parts from dumped VWs to keep my first car, a '66 Bug operating. Getting a well paying job at that age was not an easy thing to do!
Glad to see that you've started a blog on your project Corey! Told you that everyone is more than willing to assist and answer your questions.

O.K, I tried to tell him that he's better off with the six. There are lots out there. Apparently, his car has been sitting outside for 40 years unprotected.
He's coming around to finding another 110 and using his for parts.
I wholeheartedly agree that putting my 327 into it would take major work and hacking.
He'd rather have the eight, but I believe he should find a 22nd or 23rd series and go from there.Thanks for all the input!
