Re: 1940 Packard 110 project car

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.

Hey Corey,
Arvid here,
Yes, I'm pcyco13! Check up a few posts. The fellow Packardite has a 110 tranny he will provide you at NO CHARGE!

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!

'48-'50 transmission needed

Happy Thanksgiving fellow Packardites!

A young friend of mine (who is having difficulties registering to the site, password issue, I believe) has a '40 six cylinder Packard that he's working on. The engine is toast, so I've offered him a spare 327 straight eight I have. he's in need of price and availability on a clutch setup, bell housing and transmission that will work with the 327. '48-'50 will work.
I admire this young Grasshopper as he is bound and determined to keep it all Packard! We need more young people with his attitude, which is why I'm selling him my 327. He's low on bucks, but his hearts in the right place!

'55-'56 Patrician fender skirt mouldings

Hello again all! As I've posted, we've scored a pair of fender skirts. Now we're sniffing around for the stainless/chrome mouldings for them. I believe there is a center/middle strip and a front and rear tip/piece for the left and right sides. Any information/availability will be appreciated!
I see that Max Merritt has the center/middle strips available, so I can get them from there if need be. I prefer the original if possible. Condition is not a problem, as an old body and paint guy I can straighten them out and replate the tips.
Thanks again!

I'm currently on a mission for a pair of fender skirts for our '56 Patrician. Apparently '48-'56 wheel openings are not the same. '56s are about 3" longer. The radii seem to be the same.
Anyone have a pair they are willing to part with? Condition, trim holes etc. isn't an issue, I'm able to fix them up.Price and availibilty please!
