Thank you gentlemen! Those interior photos and trunk weatherstrip measurements are quite helpful.

Finishing up the mechanical needs and now on to the “clean” work.

Good evening all!

Picked up a ‘38 1605 touring sedan awhile back. It is mostly restored but it was subject to two estate sales and never fully completed ( Maybe name this one Christine 😬?). Needs interior and lots of sorting.

Anyway, need a photo of door weatherstripping profile and thickness if possible. Mine has none. Also, interior rear view mirror and a picture of inside trunk. I’ll stop there for now…

Thanks in advance!

Spiral Shocks?

Just changed out rear shocks on my 110 and noticed the old ones had a spiral pattern on the inner housing. What purpose did that serve? From a quick google looks like they may be 1960's era AC delco? I think they were a *bit* overdue for a swap 😁

Dell, thank you so much!! It appears I may have to insert a bushing into the bracket as mine fits much more loosely. Also, the retaining wire spring (anti rattle apparatus perhaps?) is on the top on mine. Not sure if that makes any difference but will try to swap around. Otherwise looks identical. Thanks again for the responses!

Looking for a photo of the throttle bracket on the firewall. This is the one on the drivers side, connecting the pedal shaft to the rod running behind engine. Mine is binding some kind of awful and it appears to be missing a brass bushing and perhaps a spring.

Thanks in advance!

Re: What color is my car??

Thanks all for the replies! I'll get it by the paint shop soon so they can take a sample and get a bit for touch ups.

Joe, sweet looking convertible there. Hope mine is that nice one day. I'm pretty sure that is the color I'm seeing on the upper trunk shelf. Whoever painted mine at least did it in classy colors (well, to my eyes anyway!) so not to upset it is not factory.

Color can some times be a challenging part of an authentic restoration. My '68 fastback mustang is Diamond Blue. It is original and rare, but horrible looking on a sporty car. When it comes time for paint it will be going Brittany blue which is a way more palatable factory color. At least that is something that can be reversed in the future.

Once again, thanks and will be posting more as I dig into my first Packard. Always wanted one since I was a kid and now get to fill that void.

Dug around a bit more and found a grayish brown color. Actually, probably like this car that was posted on the site already. Blackhawk Gray perhaps?

I agree. The factory colors were rather more "drab" if that is an appropriate term. Maybe "stately " 😁.

I will dig around some more for an original color inside. The trunk is this same color and has been for a long time. Where is a good spot to check that would have been factory finished in body color?

Looks like "Polaris Blue" from the 1953 chips, actually. I really enjoy the color, whatever it may be!

Hello all!

Recently purchased a 1940 110 model 1384. Know very little about it's history other than in was in Rogers (Sunbelt) Classic car museum in Las Vegas and auctioned of by Mecum from there.

It is a good, older restoration that I have been going through mechanically to make a fun cruiser.

The paint was advertised as "silver French blue" but that does not seem accurate. Appears to have been this color originally? Anyone recognize the color or the car and have anymore history?

Thanks!!
