Not to burst your bubble but the banjo was based on an instrument from the Caribbean!

The tail light goes to the 1956 Clipper Super that you’re parting out and I believe will also fit 1957. It does not fit any 1956 Packard which was a separate make from Clipper for that year.

I ended up buying both an NOS bezel and a used one that was starting to show signs of movement on one of the tabs. The latter is in the car now.

Using the NOS as a sample, I actually looked into getting it reproduced in stainless using CNC from a solid piece but didn’t pursue the project due to lack of time and moving farther away from the shop I used for other things.

The only difference in appearance is that there are two wires coming from the distributor to the coil rather than just one but relatively easy to disguise. Never any trouble with 6v Pertronix.

Some Packard donut chasers were also missing the donut as the Earle C Anthony dealership had some made and installed without the arms.

DMVs, at least where I live, do not give out that information to anyone not in law enforcement but one would also have to know in which state it is currently registered to even start!

I didn’t know that asbestos was still being used but too hard of shoes isn’t good either. Whenever I have shoes reclined, I always specify soft linings as I would rather wear out the shoes than wearing out the drums with hard lining.

As an anecdote to that, one time in my 6200 lbs 1952 Henney-Packard Nu-3-Way hearse with fresh brakes (huge 14” rears; wide 12” fronts), I was trying to go up a short but steep mountain road with a load of parts (Packard parts, not people parts) in the back but not only didn’t have the power with the non-overdrive rear end but the brakes, which were power, couldn’t stop the car from going backwards! It was rather scary but once back to the bottom and just before it turned, I managed to stop, then made a run for it and got out but as soon as I could I put in softer shoe linings.

Cotter pins weren’t used on these later engines and even my 1940 110 didn’t have them.

I can’t help on the headlight parts (I have a ring but it’s very rusty) but I do have a nice outside door handle.

Not sure if this will help at all as it was not taken for the purpose but it is the engine of my 1956 Clipper Custom which has since gotten the proper fuel filter and steel line from the pump.
