Treadle-Vac master cylinder losing fluid mysteriously

Our '56 Clipper has the Bendix Treadle-Vac power brakes and mysteriously loses brake fluid. No noticeable leaks anywhere.
Is this a master cylinder issue?
Too many pros and cons on the Treadle-Vac system to get a clear answer.

Thanks for the information. I assumed thats what was going on. I'll try to free it up or just remove it, as the Patrician is snuggled into her nice garage bed when the weather turns colder.

1956 Patrician heat riser

Good Afternoon,
I've been having a problem with our Patrician vapor locking.
Could this be because of a sticking heat riser? The right exhaust tailpipe drips condensation and seems a bit rusty. Isn't sooty like the left one either.

I haven't been actively searching. I don't need it right away, but thanks for offering the paint code!

Hello Again Fellow Packardites,

I'm searching for a cross reference for a modern paint code for Egyptian Sand and Aztec Brown.
My Touring Sedan's paint is so faded out that I don't have a proper sample to use to color match. Any suggestions?

Apparently it all boiled down to a vapor locking issue. I need to pull the thermostat and radiator and give it a proper flush and backflush. I'll tighten up the fan belt a bit also. Looks like a good spring project.
Thanks to all for your suggestions.

Thanks. The Packard color chart for that year states the color as "Egyptian Sand Metallic".
Thew color chart for our '56 Clipper also states "Tahitian Jade Metallic".
Neither of these have any hint of metallic in them! Makes me wonder why!

modern cross reference paint codes

Hello all,
I'm attempting to find a cross reference paint code for Egyptian Sand Metallic for our '48 22nd series Touring Sedan. I've seen paint jobs that were supposed to be Egyptian Sand, but were way too tan. I don't have a part of the car with the original color that isn't faded out to get it matched to. I know that the color is more of a putty gray than tan and would appreciate any suggestions or assistance!

Thanks for all the suggestions and help. The '55 system is a bit different than the '56. Looks like some "on my back, under the car" time with the multimeter is in store for me!
