Re: 23rd series shifter and/or transmission stuck

It ended up being a little bit of both- I freed up the shifter, then had to disconnect the linkages and fiddle around with the transmission levers, but all is well now. Thanks for the tips.

This all looks like very helpful information. Thanks. I'll work on it this weekend and report back.

23rd series shifter and/or transmission stuck

I know this topic probably exists elsewhere on the site, but I can't find the right search combo to get to it...anyway, my 23rd series is stuck in my garage, nose in, in first gear. The shifter is almost completely immobile. I've tried rocking it in gear with the engine running, and without power- nuthin'. Clutch works fine, but the shifter won't budge. Is there some common/regularly-occurring linkage problem that I should look for first?

Big thanks to packardtaximan for graciously finding and sending these pieces. I'm usually content to dole out advice/opinions on message boards, but he really went above and the beyond the normal call of duty.

I think it is either a Deluxe Eight or a Standard Eight, 23rd Series (the cowl tag is missing). It has the oval tail lights, non-egg crate grill, small hood ornament, center armrest in the back, 4 doors. Not sure about wheelbase or tire size. I apologize for maybe sounding uneducated, but the car has been in 'restoration' for about 7-8 years, so I'm not as up to speed on it as I probably need to be.

If my attempt to attach a file worked, it is the chrome piece directly above the window roll up handle on the metal window frame.

I am in need of the chrome end caps that are on each end of the larger metal trim at the top of the interior door panel, part #30.3617. There are 2/door, eight total in the car (not counting the same pieces that are on the ends of the ash tray assembly on the back of the front seat). They clip into slots on the metal bar piece. They have a 'bullet' on top, with 4-5 bars and recesses underneath. They are paired left/right, but I'll take whatever I can get. Restoration shop went under, and this is among the stuff that disappeared from my car. Any help or leads will be appreciated.

yes, on plate 32, parts numbers 30.9476 and 31.46093. It is the armrest that is almost part of the door jamb.

Greetings all. I am trying to wrap up a restoration from hell on my 23rd Series Standard (I think?) Eight. It went in to get corrosion in the floor pan fixed, and while it was pulled apart, I decided to replace the groovy red velour interior that had been installed circa 1975. That was about six years ago. The guy working on it has been incapacitated (stroke), so I'm trying to round up the pieces and start again. The interior is a hollow shell, but the seats and panels have been recovered and are awaiting installation. By the way, it is the designated getaway car for my daughter's wedding in June, as it was for me and my wife 30 years ago.
Sooo- does anybody here know where to get the armrest/end cushions (not the ones in the middle) for the back seat? I tried Kanter, but no luck there, and I haven't seen anything in the other online catalogs that cater to Packards. Thanks in advance for any help, and I'm glad the guy at Kanter steered me to this site- it's a great resource.
