Sorry, didn't even notice this one. Looks like 'Garage de Est' ...

Here you go. I don't think it will help much.

I've never removed a manifold so I'll just comment on the carburetor. Since the parts can be had for $60.00 or less, that leaves $500.00 in labor. At $80.00 per hour, it would take 6 hours and 15 minutes to disassemble/re-assemble the carburetor. It doesn't take that long. How much is this guy charging per hour?

I would call Daytona Carburetor to see if they are competitive. You have nothing to lose by calling around.

From what I can see it's a 22nd Series Super Eight Victora Convertible Coupe.

Just for you Tim. Wings come in 5 assorted colors. And... for that extra touch of understated elegance... they light up! With free shipping no less.

...If you see a 21st series Clipper with your hood ornament, it is incorrect and was probably added by a later owner...


That was what I surmised looking at the accessory brochures and seeing the filing date on the patent application (05/14/1947). Thanks for responding.

It was not a 356. It is definitely a 120 in every way except for the few 160 parts mentioned above. The Facebook ads have also been removed along with extensive comments. The seller did post a photo of the data plate and seemed genuinely surprised that it had a falsified vehicle number. I understand the title also shows 1475-2001 which I would consider to be a major problem.

Note (Packardsix1939) you can delete your extra duplicate posts by using the 'delete' button at the bottom. There is a limited amount of time to do this.

One more: Very nice and very original 1941 160 Coupe with dual side mounts. Seattle WA area. Now this one I really like. Wish it were closer:

I've been going back and forth with this guy on Facebook.
A. It's not a 160
B. It is a 120 with some 160 parts (trunk script, bumpers, hubcaps).
C. It has a bogus data plate showing a VN of 1475-2001.
D. The real 1475-2001 is actually in Australia and is listed in the owner's registry here.
E. It has one side mount and a really goofy box sunk in the driver's fender.
F. Seller claims it was modified by Henney... it does have a Henney medallion and hood latch trim.

I suspect the Henney trim just hides the holes where the 'One Twenty' script used to be. But... maybe not.

Post War Cormorant Mascot

I've got a mascot question. I was under the impression that the Cormorant mascot I have on my bathtubs was introduced with the 22nd Series. And yet, I see several Clippers sporting them. I thought the only hood ornament shared between the Clippers and the Bathtubs was the stylized Goddess. So... are all the Cormorants on the Clippers an after-sale add-on by the Clipper owners?

For the brake light switch you might try NAPA (Echlin SL134).

Edit: O_D beat me to it.
