Re: Auction: 1951 Patrician, Chester Springs, PA, August 13,2022

Based on great internet photos, I made a deposit on a similar Patrician many years ago. I can't find the VIN of that car. In that case the original 9 main bearing 327 engine had been replaced by a 288. The seller was unaware of the engine replacement. I wanted the correct engine. Ask for the engine number if the 327 9 main bearing is important to you.

someone posted this website sometime ago:

Cannot vouch for its accuracy, but an extensive website.

Congrats on locating the windshield.
As a point of disclosure, I am helping Max Merritt at this time.
Max Merritt is constantly receiving new inventory.
I checked the inventory today and we have an NOS tint windshield with filter for the 1953 Clipper Custom Touring Sedan. The windshield may be sold tomorrow but MM will have more NOS and used windshields as inventory becomes available.
Best wishes with your 1953 Clipper.

Kev, anyone who starts out as a Packard novice and then develops a plan and learns to restore the complicated systems of a 1954 Packard has a huge advantage over the rest of us. I have confidence that you can develop and successfully execute a plan to manage your health problem. Much success for you.

I plan to remove a complete air conditioning system from a 1956 Patrician. Any photos, drawings or service manual references to help in this process are appreciated, In particular the removal of the compressor from the engine block is needed. Thanks

Swimming Pool Disaster
#10

Mike Grimes
I recently helped a friend remove his award winning (a little over 100 trophies since the 1980) 1956 T-bird from sitting in his enclosed garage for about 2 years. When we opened the hood we were greeted by a huge combination of rusted fittings and pitted chrome. Turns out he also stored chlorine used in his swimming pool near the car. Our conclusion was that the frequently partially open bags of pool chlorine attacked the car. Learn something new everyday. Be careful what’s stored near your car. In his case the “fix-it” bill was about $5,000. FYI.
