Re: 1941 PACKARD MAKES ICE CUBES

Hi 58l8134,

Thanks for your reply. I have reviewed again the 1941 Packard Data Book in the Literature section. I don't see the mention of the cellarette.

Perhaps the complete edition was not listed. Or, the Data Book publication date of this copy, September 1940, was published earlier than your copy.

Nevertheless, would you please scan your information for the cellarette accessory? I would appreciate it.

Please use a scan resolution of 300DPI or greater for publication requirements.

Thanks,

Hello Ozstatman,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have read Packard 1940 A Pivotal Year by the late James Hollingsworth.

In fact I live in Texas where I attended the 2015 Texas Salado meet and met one of his good friends in the Ark-La-Tex club who lent it to me. Interestingly, Jim had autographed Norman Bates' copy, dated 10-7-02.

And yes, there are images and information about air conditioning which will be utilized and credited to him, but none of the images which I now seek.

Thanks again!

1941 PACKARD MAKES ICE CUBES

I am writing an illustrated history of factory air conditioning during the 1940-1942 and 1953-1960 periods.

I continue to search for a photo of the 1940 Packard air conditioned demonstrator at the 1940 auto shows. Do you or anyone else have such a photo?

I came across a 1941 Chicago Auto Show flyer which advertised "SEE THE MOTOR CAR THAT MAKES ICE CUBES," followed by "Special equipment for the Super-8 includes a cellarette, with service for six--including two trays of ice cubes! They freeze while you drive! Again, there's real refrigerated Air Conditioning to rout the heat of Summer! Don't miss it! Ask the man who owns one!" (See attached)

I have found an article from the San Francisco Examiner 11-17-40 which illustrated the cellarette service. However, I am unable to find 1941 Packard literature to support the optional cellarette accessory and price. Do you or anyone else have such a brochure? (See attached)

I would appreciate such information and will ensure that you are credited for it.

Thanks,

SEARCH FOR 1940 AUTO SHOW PICTURE OF 1940 PACKARD WITH "WEATHER-CONDITIONER"

I am searching for a 1940 auto show picture(s) of the 1940 Packard with the new "Weather-Conditioner" air conditioner. The picture will likely include some type of display advertising for the first time factory-installed air conditioner. Yes, I understand that Packard shipped its cars to its sub-contractor, Bishop & Babcock in Cleveland. Nevertheless, the "Weather-Conditioner" was factory authorized, installed and warranted through Packard.

This picture will be included in my illustrated history of U.S. factory air conditioned cars, beginning with the 1940-1942 period and continuing with the 1953 through 1960 models.

With this publication, the legacy of the air conditioning literature will be utilized and recorded.

I appreciate your response and will ensure that your contribution will be credited in the publication.

Thanks,
