Re: RADIAL TIRES

I bought Diamondback radials for my 23rd-Series Deluxe Eight sedan about three years ago. I have been very happy with the ride and handling. When I replace the tires on the '56 400, I'll buy another set of Diamondbacks.

I'd like them to go to someone who can use them. Price is not hugely important. $200 for both would be good. I do not have pictures but could get some taken if desired.

1951-54 Front Fenders

I have recently come into possession of a pair of pretty good front fenders for 1951-54 Packard. These include the inner panels. Not perfect, but can be made so with little effort. These are taking up space, I can't use them, and I would be very reasonable about price for someone who needs them. Located in northeast Indiana, Zip Code 46992.

Re: Motor Oil

The Indiana Region of CCCA has partnered with D-A Lubricants in Indianapolis to produce Classic Car Motor Oil. It has the correct zinc and phosphorus amounts for our older flat-tappet engines. I've used it in my cars for several years now with good results. The Indiana Region, CCCA, will ship the oil to you if you like in 12-quart cases.

Here's their website: https://inrccca.org/product/classic-car-motor-oil/

The website is really informative.

Good luck!

Our 23rd Series Deluxe Eight Sedan has a set of Diamondback radials. We put about 800 miles on them on the Henry Joy Tour in the fall of 2018. We had zero problems and the tires are still standing tall. The ride qualities and handling of the car were dramatically improved.

23rd Series Rotating Antenna
#6
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Steve Henderson
The good news is that I found the antenna mast under the front seat. The bad news is that I need some help in learning how to re-attach it. I have both a shop manual and a parts manual and can find the antenna mast in neither. Can anyone help me find a diagram or provide information about installing the mast?

Any and all help appreciated.

Second the last comment on SMS. The door panels for my '62 Bonneville took 13 months and then arrived in the wrong color. When I called about it, I was advised to "use them anyway." Fortunately, my upholsterer was able to dye them in the proper color.

Packard Front Fender Question
#9
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Steve Henderson
Are the front fenders all the same from 1951 through 1954? I recently came into ownership of a pair of pretty straight used ones, including inner panels, but I don't know how to advertise them.

Any help appreciated,
Steve in Indiana

Re: 1951 Patrician Police Car?

So maybe it never was an airport car, and maybe it never was a police car. Another case of caveat emptor I guess.

Yes, I think there is an overdrive relay on the firewall and a black knob under the dash to throw it in and out. It would be an interesting car to own and a fun tour car to take on the road. I may go look if it doesn't sell.

Thanks, guys, for all your input.
