Re: How to mount wheel discs for a 1935 Packard senior car?

I should have been a little clearer. I need longer extenders, flexible ones a few inches long. While you can get such things easily on Amazon or at any auto parts store, the ordinary ones you would buy don't have a way to mount them on to the wheel disc. The wheel disc has a large hole that looks like it's designed to hold the valve stem extender in place. But what holds the valve stem extender to the hole?

Pictures of the disc attached.

How to mount wheel discs for a 1935 Packard senior car?
#2

I plan to replace the tires on my 1935 Packard Twelve, and I want to switch from whitewalls and wire wheels (as it is now) to blackwalls and wheel discs. I have the wheel discs that are original to my car; they were on the car until 2007, when it came into my possession. But I was hoping I could get advice on how to install them. I know how the discs clip on to the wheels. That seems easy. But do you need some sort of valve stem extenders, to go from the valve stem on the wheel out through the opening in the wheel disc so you can inflate the tires without removing the discs? I assume something like that is needed. The discs I have have old valve stems, so I assume there was once something mounted like that, but I don't know what is needed. Any ideas?

Thanks, all. Here's what the screw looks like.

Need correct screws to attach top bows on a '35 12 coupe-roadster

I have a '35 12 coupe roadster. On the convertible top, the screws attaching the top bows to the metal pieces are coming out. (A few have come out already, and I'm stuck taping the top bows to the metal as a stop-gap to keep the structure together. Not very attractive!) I need to buy new screws, at least 5, to keep it all tight and secure.

Does anyone know which screws are correct for this? I have tried to include pictures below so you can see the screws I am referring to. Thanks!

Serial numbers -- what was Packard thinking?
#5

I am fortunate to have a 1935 Twelve and a 1934 Eight, and it's interesting to me that the 1934 Eight has frame serial numbers and steering box serial numbers while the 1935 Twelve has neither. I've noticed this is true for other 1934 Eights and 1935 Twelves. I wonder, why did Packard do it that way? Curious if there was a reason they put it on one and not the other. Maybe they used serial numbers on higher production cars, or used them less often later? The reason may be lost to time, but it struck me as interesting.

On whether there are any period photos of the 1101s with painted radiator shells: I don't have a photo, but it's interesting that a few of the drawings/renditions in the 1101 catalog have a painted radiator shells.

I tried attaching the picture of the new clutch I had installed in my '35 1207, but I'm getting a warning message "Protector detects attacking actions." Short version, the upper one looks right to me.

I'm a fan of CCC, and I have also been amused by the fact that Carini often loses money on cars he puts up for auction. With that said, I would imagine his business is more based (a) getting that first call when someone has a car to sell, (b) work at his shop, for which I'm sure the hourly rate is high, and (c) consignment sales at his own shop, which don't make for good TV but probably outnumber auction sales. Having a TV show with a very high profile in the collector car community is presumably a great way to advance these three interests. Selling some cars at auction to make for a good TV episode is probably a "loss leader" that helps fuel the business. That's my guess, at least.

Re: Just like the factory, period correct, or owner preference?

These are all just matters of personal preference, like whether a steak should be ordered medium, medium rare, or well done.

In my experience, Packard people (and especially those on Packard boards) usually like it the way it originally was, as close to the factory as is reasonable in context. But that's just the group, not a matter of being right or wrong.

What a terrific car, and a terrific site.

Someday, after I get my 12 repainted back to its original color, I should do something like that. My '35 12 has been in the family since 1942, when it was bought by my grandfather from what we believe was the original owner. The earliest picture we have of the family with the car was 1951, and then again around 1970 and then a bunch of pictures from the late 1970s. Maybe someday I'll write up something about the car for the Cormorant.
