Riki, I would probably be guilty myself, if I saw a Packard in a parking lot I expect I'd be drawn to that area for a closer look.

Thank you BigKev,

Of all the various Internet sites, forums and groups I tend to visit, this one is tops, I always feel I am surrounded by those gentlemen of old. Sure would be nice if certain other social media followed the same standard you set.

Re: 48-50 front bumper adjustment

It has been too many years since I was young and played with auto bodywork, but from memory I think the bolt holes on the bumper brackets were oversized to allow for some adjustment, that should work unless the bracket has become bent over the years. Probably take several folks to hold bumper in correct place while another tightens the bolts.

These were different from what we expect today, look for your booster under the floor/pedal area.

Search on the forum for "tredlevac" and you should find many stories.

Be cautious, from what I have read these fail without much warning.

Re: 1950 Packard 8 interior door panels

Just can't stay away


In 1960 dad purchased a new car and his 50 Packard became mine to drive. Among other projects I changed the interior door and side panels, while I wouldn't choose the same gaudy material today, they weren't difficult to change the cloth depending on your desired level of quality, at the most basic just lay the panel on the cloth of your choice and glue the cloth to the back of the panel, if missing the entire panel seems like it was a composition board similar to Masonite.

Re: 6 volt to 12 volt conversion

Probably just causing yourself more problems changing voltage, adding additional problems rather than solving the present ones.

Generally 6 volt uses heavier wire than 12 volt as it carries more amps at the lower voltage.

Check battery cables to be sure that the terminals on both ends are clean and check that you are not using a light weight 12 volt cables. 12 volt cables appear to be maybe 3/8 inch around while 6 volt are closer to 5/8 - 3/4 in size to carry the load.

Just a suggestion, check the timing, hard to describe, but when you say laboring, timing can give that feeling that the engine is fighting itself when cranking.

Wishing you the best, Brenda. You're fighting a health battle that isn't much fun, fought mine some years ago (colon) and fortunately still here to tell about it, chemo is yucky, lucky I didn't have to deal with radiation. May all be smooth for you.

I grew up around a Packard and owned several when they were just used cars and not something collected, in old age I'm back in the fold with a 48 sedan and a 40 business coupe, unfortunately I'm not as successful with getting out and enjoying them and you and Doug, keep having fun with yours.

I tend to follow activities of Ram as a son uses a heavy duty pickup in his hauling business, in this case an air bag system to assist the springs after you've loaded your Packard(s) on to your trailer.

Re: Fuel Filter # for Carter glas bowl?

Don't know if the bowl I have is the same, seems like the filter I purchased was for a 60's model Thunderbird, will try to look and see if I have one still in a box with part number

Hopefully picture of box attached, again older model Packard, maybe not what you need, but a place to start. Local parts shop matched up for me at the time.

My 1940 coupe may or may not be original, but seems like the windshield wipers are electric, you may want to add them to the list of items to check.
