Re: 51 300 Trunk latch assembly

Thank you for taking one for the team with the wasp nests.... Don't wish that on anybody! Been there, done that...not fun....
Both trunk lids, 400 and 300, are 4 hole. That's not saying that the trunk lid had been replaced but, I highly doubt it. The inside of the trunk lid has the same color paint as the body. This leads me to believe that the change that was mentioned earlier in this thread, is an example of the change between the 2 models. I could see where the potential for popping open on the 400 is clearly evident due to the design.
I appreciate the inputs !

Still in need of a trunk latch assembly. One that works with the iron loop. I attempted to use the one from my 51 Patrician but, instead of the iron loop, it has the stamped metal style catch. TIA

Does anyone know a Tim Berto ? Has a red Packard with a white top. Appears to be a 200.
Was working a transaction with him. I have reason to believe that it's a scam due to red flag type questions.
He wanted payment sent via Friends and Family. I sent it for Goods and Services. He said he can't process it....SMH
I you know Tim Berto, and he's a good guy, please let him know that he may have been hacked.

51 300 Trunk latch assembly
#6

Between my 400 and 300, I found a difference in the trunk latch. The 400 has a formed latch where, the trunk mechanism on the trunk lid locks on to whereas, the 300 has an iron loop bolted to the lower trunk body panel. Hence my confusion. The 300 didn't have a lid mechanism. I swapped the 400 to the 300 and, it doesn't latch, due to the difference in the two. Anyone happen to have a trunk lid lock/latch assembly that works with the bolted iron "loop" style ?

Regards,
Mark

Just read this post. If the motor/trans is 1000lbs, the chassis has to be more than 200lbs based on the estimate posted. The rear end alone is 200lbs+ easily....
Just my opinion....

Good morning, Looking for a POC for the H.O.T. Packard Club. Tried to send an email to the listed contact but, email was returned undeliverable. Was a member years ago in the Dallas Packard Club. Looking to get back into it. Own 2 1951's, a Patrician 400 and a 300. TIA

Good morning, Looking for a hood latch/ release assembly complete for my 51 300. It's missing the post with the spring and spring cup. If you have that, even better. The rest of the assembly is good...TIA
