Garrett:

There was an article in the "Cormorant News Bulletin" years ago on surviving late number cars. Going on memory here, the latest known was a 400 hardtop 5687-4224. There was also a late Clipper as well, I don't recall the details. The last Caribbean convertible is well known and has been in the club for years.

The roster keeper could answer this question better. I do know that so far, the last car, a dark blue Patrician 5682-4775 isn't known to survive. One can only hope it's still out there.

Thanks Howard.

Looks like it beats my current method which is to photograph on my front porch with the best natural light once I've rigged up flattening the magazine with popsicle sticks and metal spring clips. Crude but affective. I haven't done much with bound books.

Once I get a good image (always take two or three) I use the www.irfanview.com software to clean up the images to the best I can get them. I might have to look into one of these Visan units.

This nice original '53 Cavalier just turned up on the AACA Forum:
https://forums.aaca.org/topic/373329-f ... not-mine/#comment-2318816

It's located about 25 miles from me, if anyone wants it inspected, send me a PM and I will go check it out for you and give you a report.

This poor '56 Patrician refugee from the big recent auction in nearby Utica. Although badly deteriorated but with A/C, note the serial number: 5682-4760, fifteen cars from the last Detroit Packard 5682-4775:

Hi

The one question I have, does the software visually 'flatten' out the image to accommodate the bound page making a distorted image?

Hi

Although the 1937-'38 320 ci straight eights are largely the same, the 1939 320 ci straight eight was significantly revised to fit into the 120 chassis to create the new Super 8. It is a one-year engine because it was replaced for 1940 by the new monobloc 356 ci straight eight in the 160 and 180.

Apparently the 1939 320 wasn't quite as robust as the prior version. There is a Service Bulletin for dealer garages detailing how to replace that engine with a postwar 327 service engine for customers.

While we're purist now, back in the era when these were used cars, keeping an otherwise good car with a tired engine on the road was the only consideration.

Kevin:

I have that same sound when I start my '53 Clipper Deluxe, same 327 as your car. It never seems to be any louder and always mostly quiets down once it's warmed up, just a minor bit of that sound remains. Unless someone more knowledgeable weighs in, I doubt if its anything to worry about.

We're all so used to new cars having every trace of mechanical din silenced out or deadened, we forget cars then weren't that way.

Here is another example of a 23rd Series Super Eight that would be an excellent choice for a Packard you can enjoy immediately:

Unless you have the skills and facilities to perform the restoration work necessary and the time to do so, buying an example such as this is far more cost-effective now. Good luck with your search.
