Radio antenna location on a 41 or 42

As I do the body work on my 1942 120 convertible I am ready to weld up the old double antenna mounting holes and re-drill for the correct antenna.

Looking for the measurements from the belt line molding down to where the antenna should mount

Attached is a picture of the existing antenna

Any insight or pictures would be helpful

Here are some pictures of the transmission
It all came out of a 42 but I do not think either of them were original to the car

Re: Car Titles, engine numbers and vin #'s

I spent yesterday morning at the State Patrol vin inspection station.
They decided to use both the vin plate number and the anti theft number on the firewall

The reasoning behind the decision was the Vin plate tells what the car is but it’s held on with 4 screws. The anti theft number is permanent.
By using both they felt it was a way to tie the vin to the body that it was attached to.
They removed the engine number from the state records and said to get a notarized bill of sale for both the buyer and myself when I sell the old motor. That way they won’t have any issues when they reregister their car with that engine number

Great information - that helps a lot

It also validates what I am finding.
A red oxide color of primer under the cowl pads and it explains the black I am finding in some areas under the paint

Car Titles, engine numbers and vin #'s

Just wanted to share a little information to all of you who are doing an engine swap or restoring your cars and do not realize that Packard's are titled to the engine number. If the engine has been changed and the title not updated you could have a problem if it ever get stolen or you go to sell it.
I bring this up as a reminder because I didn't realize this and almost sold the engine that was in the car. I know have to take the chassis that is stripped with the engine in it to the State Patrol to get a new vin number assigned to the title. They said they will probably use the anti theft number as the vin number. This isn't correct per their books but they said they would do that until I bring it back restored with the new engine in it. At that time they will reinspect it and assign the new engine number as the vin number for the title.
It makes me wonder how many titles actually match the correct engine number

Painting your cars hidden areas

When painting your cars, what was the original color for the under body area, the back side of fenders, the back side of the hood side panels and the inside floor and cowl?
I have seem them painted black and I have seen them painted the main body color.
On my 42 it looks like the cowl was originally a reddish primer under the cowl pad and bare steel up under and behind the dash

Any thoughts
Thanks
