It's just almost unbelievable that that car is the short wheelbase! You can tell that car was built for only very rich people because you would have to have a warehouse for a garage! I do so miss packard! Loving my 47!

Be sure to tell KM lifestyles how many bolts are on the sender. That way they can nail it down pretty close. That's how I got the right one. The one they sent me was the specification for my car but in the post-war era they were probably grabbing any part they could to get them into the car that would work so they could sell it. It was a magnificent sender extremely well made and more aircraft like in it's quality. But the correct one was just an inexpensive one that worked flawlessly. Also they sent it with a cork float on it. That will not work with ethanol gasoline. I found a float at jegs, I think and put it on the sender and that's what I'm using for a float. The only sealant that's going to hold up on that cork float is gas tank sealer. But I didn't want to buy a huge can just for that.

Looks like miles of smiles. I love to see bathtubs rolling down the road because I know underneath that beautiful aerodynamic skin is my chassis!

This car is a fitting tribute to the last days of Packard. Going out in a blaze of splendor. I really hope someone with deep pockets can preserve this car for future generations.

Always use metal ones for every car you own. They are much better for holding Air pressure.

I think I found it. The Super Eight and the Custom Super eight shared the egg crate grill. The Custom, being the top of the line, had the double strips..

Some of the 1949 Custom Eights have double rocker strips. Was this an option? If not, why???

I love those custom Packards like yours. As far as the gear shift sticking if you look in the manual you see there's a very specific routine for lubricating the shift linkage. I think the handy shift that Packard put out got a bad reputation because the shifting mechanism does require maintenance and no one ever thinks to do it.
My car had a bad pinion bearing so we took out the carrier and I just replaced every bearing in the carrier because I wanted to get it ready for another 73 years!

The push button mechanism was very troublesome and most collectors remove them and replace them with standard shift. When it malfunctions the car is not drivable.
