Just one piece of advice if that Ultramatic starts giving you trouble replace it with a GM700r from Bendtsens transmission adapters and get the kit to make it work. Although it did cost a boatload of money to get done (about $3500) it made my car into a reliable automobile-and increased performance and gas mileage.

If you want to see how a proper torsion level suspension works look up Jay Leno's garage on Youtube and see his 1955 Packard Caribbean Convertible. Also There is a person in one of the Pacific Northwest regional Packard clubs that does a control box conversion for the torsion level system all solid state replaces the relays (no moving parts) I had that done to mine about a dozen years ago; my torsion level has been trouble free since.

If I owned a car like yours and had unlimited funds (which I don't) I would recreate that station wagon.

I think it did have a partition but just regular bench seats.

You know the more I look at your car the more I think that it could be the basis for a re-creation of that one-off Henney station wagon built in 1954 (see photo attached).

1940 Packard 180 petronix

has anyone here installed a Petronix on a 356 straight-eight were you able to use the stock coil? were there any other issues? I had a petronix unit installed on my car with a petronix coil; it ran fine but I noticed on the way home after filling my tank (it was on E) my gas gauge my oil pressure gauge stopped working so I am wondering what happened? Oddly enough the ammeter gauge worked properly.

the total for the swap the kit the tranny came to about $4000 about $1000 more than my last Ultramatic job and like I said no issues since in my opinion worth the extra money (and the overtime I put in to have it done!).Had the car AAA there drove it home when it was done I was amazed at much much get up and go it had and the gas mileage well I never received more than 14 or 15 mi per gallon after the conversion I drove to the Hershey car show from my home and only used a quarter tank of gas! The four grand covered the complete job.
