Re: Packard Hunting Spears ??

To be honest, a flashlight alone just won't cut it these days. Case in point... When going directly to the factory to pick up spares one would be benefited in having a flashlight, let's face it those old incondecent lights aren't very efficient anymore. But things are rough at the sight of East Grand Blvd. and one would be well served to only visit with a Packard hunting spear. That said, I'd never recommend a nighttime visit to the factory with or without a Packard hunting spear. I should think someone on the site would buy and distribute them for a moderate margin of profit. It looks like a great opportunity!

Happy hunting!

Hi boosquat, welcome to Packard Info. I'm sorry for the less than warm welcome from some here, let me personally welcome you to the site and thank you for taking the effort to offer your power plant for sale. As a former owner of a '39 Super 8, I'm personally familiar with the vehicle and engine. Parts are scarce, to some degree, one year only in this case, and needed by others who tour and use in their as manufactured form.

I hope this works out for you, and whoever is in need of this.

Don't be a stranger here, we have a modified forum and would be glad if you shared, or started a blog of your own. Best of luck!

This issue was a treat, my '60 Edsel and friend Bob's were the featured cars. The Packard article was a great bonus!

Just a friendly piece of advice, '39 & '40 non-side mount fenders are different believe it or not.

Very neat project! Once sorted, I enjoyed mine very much and is still serving the new owner faithfully.

Hi West, no the luggage rack clears I'm just dragging my feet fitting everything up and finishing that project. I've been dividing my attention between various antique car and motorcycle projects lately.

Been a very long while since posting here. Back in Feburaury I fabed up a reciver hitch and slide in slug as well as wired for flat four connection and towed my 1940 Aluminum Tralier Corporation teardrop to a show in historic phoenix. People On the interstate were very surprised to see such a site motoring on a modern interstate at 75. 3.90:1 in high gear overdrive is effortless even towing the trailer. What a ride 160hp must have been in 1940!

If you'd like to take a look Jack, my project blog has a very detailed account of installing R-11 in my '40 160. All I can say is its magnificent! Very worth the effort if you enjoy living in the 75 mph world of the western US. Go for it!

I'm not sure this is the place to air these concerns. Packard Info. has served as a place to bring people together, from different geographical locations, as well as various clubs, and across a broad range of interests including pre-war, V-8, modified, and restored. I suppose it's hard when things change, especially a beloved club.

I'd suggest that Packard Info. Is a place for neutrality and enjoyment of the marquee. Honestly, the website, in part, came to fruition so no club, individual, or overpowering sponsor nor business could exert power or control and use it to serve their interests.

I would respectfully ask we, as privileged members of this community do the same in return. Let the clubs find their way, and respect the autonomy of this website, and the clubs respectively. I think everyone can co-exist and do their best, whatever their best is at that time, to promote the Packard automobile.

Just my thoughts, respectfully shared.
