I have used RI Wiring multiple times for multiple car makes and have always been pleased with the quality of their product. Although their website does not allow online ordering, I like how it is organized and easy to find things you didn't even know you needed.

DavidPackard, I have not identified the noise and have just been driving and enjoying the car. I acquired a spare transmission that I think I will rebuild and swap into the car at a later date. The noise has not changed for the better or worse so I do not feel any further damage is occurring.

Re: 1941-1947 Parts Manual Utility section 50.000

Howard,

I have referenced the 48-54 book and it does not seem to be as useful as the earlier one. I wonder what the reasoning was for omitting this section in the Clipper book.

1941-1947 Parts Manual Utility section 50.000

Good afternoon, I am wondering if the the parts manual for the 41-47 cars had the utility section (50.000) like the manuals preceding and following. I have been using the earlier utility section on here to identify some of the fasteners, clips and other bits, but some are unique to the Clipper cars and not in the other manuals I referenced above.

Based on the type font and material (tinned steel), your patent plate is with almost total certainty an original.

Thanks for the numbers. And all your numbers appear consistent with each other.

Unfortunately, many dealers failed to stamp the plate with their identification and delivery date.


Thank you for verifying what I believed to be an original matching car. I had my doubts about the patent plate because the number matched the Briggs number, but I see that it could match as per the information in the new decoder. I do wish that the dealer would have stamped the plate, too late now.

You can also look at the casting date on your block. That should give you a rough idea that your car was probably assembled a few weeks after that.


I will have to take a look for the casting date, just for fun.

1941 Clipper Identity

So I came across a post on here about the relationship between thief-proof numbers, engine numbers, Briggs numbers, and patent plate numbers that sparked my interest. I believe someone named Owen was collecting data for a database and it inspired me to take a look at all these numbers on my 41’ Clipper. What I found seemed a little “off” to me in respect to production volume and elapsed time. Hopefully someone here can help me interpret what I’m seeing about my car.

The patent plate is stamped with 1401-18144 and nothing else, it appears to possibly be original or an older repro since it is on steel and some of the silk screening is still visible. The Briggs plate also has this exact number and is original looking. The title to the car is from Pennsylvania and shows this same number as the VIN with an original title date of 6/15/41. The engine number is D416239C and fits nicely with the late build of VIN, so I believe it to be original. What I find to be “off” is that from what I can see 41’ Clipper production or sales began in April of that year and my car was titled in June. So given the time-frame and sequence number means that Packard would have built 269 cars per day, seems like a lot. The thief-proof number on the car is 618286, just incase this helps.
