Not sure what the C suffix represents on those years.

Suffix C indicates the engine had the revised pistons and rings as detailed in bulletin 48T-9.


Thanks Howard, I’ll look it up.

I can see that. I think you’re right, it is G611555

I was able to pull the number from my engine. It looks like G511555C. Not sure what that tells me.

The red painted engines were not factory rebuilt but rather new replacement long blocks with no stamped serial number.
I have one of these that came out of a 22nd Series Custom 8 sedan.



Thanks BDeb,
This sounds interesting. When I bought the car I remember looking for the engine number but couldnt find it at the time. Everything was pretty dirty. So I was going to clean up the engine and look later. I havent looked very close since then, but maybe thats why I couldnt find it.
I'd like to see a picture of your engine if you have one handy.
Thanks again,
Dave

Thanks JD and Owen.
I dont think I can go wrong with either gray or green. But do you think I should respect the history of "this" car and paint it red. As red engines were "factory rebuilt" engines. And Packard did the rebuild.

I've got a question for the group.
I have a 22 series 1949 Custom Sedan with a 356 engine. From what I've gathered on this site the original color was either green or gray. When I look at my engine I can tell both the head and block were red.
I've found only one reference to red engines in the literature and it says that red engines were factory rebuilds.
My question to you is if I'm restoring the car should I take it back to the factory colors (green or gray) or represent "this" cars history and make it red?
What do you think?

Yes, they will work. I installed these in my 49 and they work great. Love them.
