Also, be sure to spray water on the windshield before trying the wipers. The blades may not move - even if they are working - on dry glass.

"The trouble with memory is not that it fails, but that it so generously creates."

In 1953, each had 327-cubic inches, however the Cavalier had 5-main bearings while the Patrician had 9-main bearings. In 1954, the Cavalier kept the 327-cid 5-main block, while the Patrician's block was enlarged to 359-cid, still with 9-mains.

Packard changed to the 12-volt system in 1955 with a positive ground. In 1956, the 12-volt system was changed to negative ground.

Actually, it is in the 1948-54 parts book.

If this engine block has the original paint (red) then it came out of a 1955 Clipper Deluxe or Clipper Super, and would be 320-cid. The correct 352-cid block for the Caribbeans (and all 1955 seniors) would be painted ivory. The 352-cid block was also used on the 1955 Clipper Custom, and was painted turquoise.

Pete Grave - RIP

Pete Grave of Ottsville, Penn. passed away a few days ago at the age of 84 of cancer. A memorial service will be held in the Spring of 2023.

Pete's life with Packards started in the mid-1950s, when he was in high school, and he started working at a Packard dealership in Philadelphia. During the past several decades he and his wife, Jan, ran Ted Covington Sales, a towing service and junkyard in Ottsville. A feature of "The Grave Yard" was dozens of Packards, mostly postwar models.

Pete leaves behind his wife Jan, many of their favorite dogs, and even more friends that he made over the years.
