Re: South Florida Packard/Vintage Car mechanic?

Dean Prevolos
Good morning Dave, I have been asking the same questions for years! That is why I have had to make all of my repairs in Naples, Florida. There are no known Packard mechanics that will give us lacky's the time of day. If the transporter flooded the car upon delivery and rolled it off, are you saying that the car won't start even after sitting overnight? The few times my car seemed to be flooded I just put the pedal to the floor and turn the key. That usually works. All of our cars have our "touch" to start them and I understand the frustration. In Marco Island, Florida (west Coast) there is a shop Island Automotive owned by Kieth Pershing that does advertisement in our local AACA monthly newsletter and can be reached at 239-394-1887. He may know someone on the East coast that can help you out. I always liked your black convertible, very sharp car. Good luck, Dean (36 Packard 120B)

This car was painted blue and had yellow wheel rims before it was restored and painted black. This car was originally purchased by a women in 1934, passed on to her daughter and purchased by the dealer in 2013. The dealer commissioned a restoration but changed the color of the car and of the wheels. The restoratio receipts were over $400,000. The car sold for $ 230,000. See link below

Dean Prevolos
My wiper motor has never been hooked up since I bought my car 4 years ago. I would like to try to get it working. Does anyone have a schematic on the assemble of the hoses from the regulator under the dash and to the fuel pump vacuum port and the wiper motor?

Any assistance is appreciated.

Trippe Light assembly

Dean Prevolos
I removed my Trippe light to re-wire. I am ready to reassemble but I Can't figure out how to hold the light, compress the snap ring and keep the lens in place all at the same time.

Does it take two people to put the snap ring and lens back into the bucket?

Any comments or advise is welcome.

Thank you, Dean Prevolos.
