Do the lens interchange between 1956 and 1957-'58?

This thread dealt with lost keys:
https://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/mod ... &order=ASC&status=&mode=0

Owen noted that Briggs & Stratton P1251 to P1500 keys are what Packard specified. If you have a worn key he still should be able to make new keys.

Check the shop manual section for instructions on how to remove the ignition switch or there may be a method to remove just the tumbler insert for your locksmith.

Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace or whatever, it doesn't matter as long as it brings another Packard to the attention of someone who will save it or can use the parts.

This topic started years before Facebook even thought about a marketplace...

Whatever you do, select the potmetal grille parts that are as smooth and free from pits with good chrome and bumpers also with good plating that can be polished to look good. Chrome re-plating is hideously costly.

Yes, Its been done to a few cars. There is a '51 Convertible that had a '55 Clipper front clip fitted and taillights grafted onto the rear fenders. Actually, except for the '51-'54 non-wrap-around windshield, it looked like a '55 Clipper convertible. It was for sale out of a Salt Lake City, Utah collection 15-20 years ago.

Owen is correct, its a 1937 Super Eight Model 1500, body style 1003. Although we haven't the exact production numbers, it was their entry-level Senior, five-passenger sedan at $2,335. Those seem to have been their best-selling Super Eight by the number of survivors that still turn up.

Iirc, there is a Service Bulletin that instructs dealers how to retrofit postwar 327 service replacement engines in pre-war models with the 320 engine. In the period of more practical outlook, a good Packard with a tired engine wasn't discarded when a serviceable replacement engine was readily available at their dealer. Since they were concerned with utility and not correct period engines, a 1951 engine served just fine.
