Re: 8th series sidemount hardware

I doubt it goes on the inside of the frame. The frame has plenty of strength. I think it should go behind the sheetmetal to give it support, or maybe more likely between the sidemount bracket and the sheetmetal. Does the plate fit within the base of the sidemount bracket?

... and I agree with David Flack. The trunk handle is correct for a non trunk-rack early 1940. There were three different handles used on the senior cars in 1940. The T-handle was only used on cars with trunk racks, and there would be no Packard script on the bumper if it had a trunk rack.

I think the stainless running board moulding should extend on to the front fender just behind the front wheel, but this 160 is a longer wheelbase than mine, so not sure.
The "Packard Motor Car Company" in AZ makes reproductions of this in solid aluminum.



The running board trim on the long wheelbase cars (148-inch) does not extend into the front fender.

This is a 1930, but it should be the same.

The "spacer" attaches directly to the frame. There is no rectangular steel "plate".

I doubt you will find any wood patterns for your car, attached is the Packard body illustration for your model. If you have it professionally enlarged to the maximum size then draw scale grid lines on it using dimensions on the drawing , you can scale off missing dimensions.
Unless you can find an identical car with exposed wood this is about as good as you will get in my view.
The copy does not look very clear, send me your email by PM and I will try to send a better copy.


That drawing is a four-passenger coupe, not a 2/4-passenger coupe. the 2/4 has a rumble seat.

Check with Max Merritt. They just bought all the engines out of the Packard museum, and I'm pretty sure there were some included.

More than twice what a knowledgeable Packard enthusiast would pay. A Sport Phaeton, much more desirable, sold for $156k at Amelia this year, and it was in show condition.

Another Sport Phaeton sold about a year ago in the $40-50k range, in complete un-restored condition.
