This looks like a great car and the trunk is one of the nicest I have seen. Have fun with the car and be sure to join the Packard Club.

The 1953 Emblem has black color on the background. The 1954 Pacific has Amethyst color. Only a handful were made. The Packard proving grounds has one of the cars.

I do not have the 1955 cloth. Your only option is SMS in Oregon.

You have been busy. You should order a new reproduction wiring harness, your wiring has been butchered up. We put a new harness in my 1956 and it went very well.

The metering rods have numbers on them. Let me know what number you need, I may have new ones.

If nothing else, the Diamondbacks are much easier to keep the whitewalls clean. I have them on both my 56's.

The 1940 356 water pump is a one year only item. The shaft and hub are shorter than the 1941-50 356 pumps. You may have a 1940 only one from years ago.

I think all of us have had a milk crate in our Packards during restorations. My wife sat on a crate and started the car for her first time.

Originally Packard left an uncarpeted area under the seat. They had a front carpet and a rear carpet. The two seams you see in the photo are absolutely correct because that is where the front a rear carpets met. The first seam is 14 inches back from the door opening and the second seam is 26 inches back. I did not want to leave an uncarpeted area under the seat but I maintained the original seams. The carpet is advertised in the Cormorant news bulletin by Neal Porter. Very high quality carpet. My upholstery shop sewed it into place.
