1937 paint schemes discontinued?

Documentation indicates that for the 1937 models, introductory paint schemes E, F, K,S, and Z "will be later discontinued."

Does any one have an documentation certifying that Packard actually discontinued those paint schemes?
IF so...WHEN?

Does anyone know what the hammer price was on the 1938 Super Eight Convertible Sedan at the Worldwide Auctioneers event in Auburn today?

What a beautiful original! Hopefully it will be maintained in that condition.

I prefer not to be involved in the judging scene, but have always wondered how judges
consider grungy old data plates vs shiny new reproductions?!?!?!

IMHO the R of ROI does not have to be a '$'.
Bear with me a true story....

Back in 1968 I was shocked when my mailman in Damascus, MD bought a $10,000 Winnebago motor home.
I asked him:"How can you justify spending that kind of money on something you use just a couple times a year?"
He replied:"When you go out to dinner, do you go to SAVE MONEY?..No...it's called STYLE OF LIVING!
It's simply HOW you enjoy spending your money!
You don't try to justify everything.
Talk to a boat owner about ROI!"

The 1936 LeBaron was listed on ebay back in 2019.
I don't remember the starting price or if there were any bids.

I'm surprised to read all the pessimism!
Those two LeBarons look sad, but all it takes is someone with a dream, lots of patience, time, energy, and elbow grease...and, yes, a few bucks.

You pick up one piece at a time, look at it and say, "I can fix this!"
You do it 500 times and then you find the right bolts to put parts together.
Eventually you will have a very functional
Packard that you can enjoy driving down a country lane...smug as heck at having fulfilled your dream.

Not all people are into the judging scene. Some folk are just happy to enjoy saving a rare Packard.

I've been down that road but now too old to tackle another project.

The LeBarons are extremely rare cars and deserve to be saved.

326 project
#9
Home away from home
Home away from home

Bob
Back to my 326 project...
I was able to remove the pitman arm from the shaft with a pickle fork.
I noticed that there is an oil hole on the top of the arm, but no mention of it in the owner's manual for lubrication!
(our 526-309 also has the hole!)

Now I am trying to remove the column from the box because the pot metal bearing has fractured and apparently compressed the bronze bushing, clamping the shaft.

What I need to know is how is the worm gear secured to the shaft?

Also, if I drive the shaft up from the bottom, am I apt to bugger up something?

Would love to talk to anyone who has gone through this challenge.
