Go to vehicles for sale and look for postings from 4/13. I can't make it link.

Looks to be a deal!

Item: 1940 Packard 160 Sedan
Price: $9,500.00
Description: I bought this Packard in case I needed the motor for another Super 8.(Very long story) It was not needed and so I am selling the car. It starts and runs well. The car came from Las Vegas and I think Texas before that. Prior owner modified the fuel system. The original gas tank was replaced with a plastic type tank and so the exhaust was diverted to come out on the side near the rear wheel. I have the original parts which include the original gas tank and braces. The car was also partially rewired. the interior is intact with the exception of the wiring being incomplete. Solid car worth restoring. I am glad I did not have to remove any parts. Many more photos are available.

THanks for that tip. Yeah, I'm allergic to pushing things too hard without trying to get some lube inside before turning,pulling/pushing. The stuff that broke when I was a teenager has had 40 good years of further rusting to be that much tighter.

I did figure out the 6 vs 8 dilemma for the short wheelbase car. It's as obvious as the nose on my face, but you don't see it until you see it.

Yes, apparently, there is an OD unit out back of the trans. There is certainly a block-out pull knob under the dash. It's stuck, so I'm trying to convince some oil to go down the cable.

Frankly, I haven't slithered under the car yet.

Which runs my labor and the price up toward unaffordable.


I think I was hoping to find someone who has one that's missing some parts or has failed parts.


No matter, something will become apparent.

That's kind of what I was figuring, that someone might want or need parts for theirs. I have no interest in the thing. My grandfather had one on his '48 Custom and it worked once in a blue moon - not that he was opposed to operating his own clutch with his left foot.

I have a '42 parts car without the EC which I can borrow linkage from.

I'm not entirely sure, but it seems that this car has the electromatic clutch option. I discovered its overdrive last week. I'll post a couple of pictures for determination.


Would anyone want to buy it? It seems intact. How much is something like that worth? Any help appreciated . . . .

(Finally) got the serial number from the engine which was delivered last month. The one with the 288 head. The one you guys said to check the number on.

Turns out that, not only is it a 327, but it's a 9-main block.

w000t!!!

Hmmm, because more is better?!?


Also, it looks like I can get 235-70r15s in it so there will be a bit more to spin.

Home from scoring a 356 remnant. Block, head, manifolds, crank, cam. Valves, I don't remember. Maybe, maybe not.


Oh, and an oil pan. With a .75" hole in it. From the inside out. My favorite.


It's going to be a long campaign with this one.


Damn picture is not coming through. I hate when the electronix act up.
