Re: Fuel Tank Interchange - 1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper

Km lifestyles made the sender for my 1947 custom super clipper. You have to count the number of holes and let them know what they are so they will know what sender to make. The only problem was the sender was an exact reproduction which had a cork float which had shellac on it on it. The shellac promptly dissolved because of the ethanol in our gasoline. I called them and recommended to them that in the future they should coat the cork float with the fuel tank sealant used inside gas tanks. In my case I went to JEGS and bought a fuel tank sender float. I was able to attach it to my sender and there's been no problem.

My big coupe is the exact same shade.


I'm looking to find out who makes something that matches Cavalier Maroon Metallic, hence the question.


Still a damned fine looking car.

Had vapor lock once. Electric fuel pump and new exhaust manifold gaskets by Ross Miller solved that one. Car still runs cool.

Not painted. Still the original nitrocellulose paint. Car is a 10 footer but with McGuires exterior detailer the paint pops washing out the cracks. Got this tip from JWL himself!
Car is pretty much original.

You are right! I better plan to leave early in the morning. I hope I can get my crew to leave that early!
I did drive this car to an event once that was about an hour away from my house and it was in 90° weather in the DC area. Before I started I opened the cowl vent and all the vent wings including the ones in the back.
I was comfortable as long as I didn't stop. Of course there was a major traffic jam on the beltway and I had to stop and it was pretty awful. But once I started moving again it was fine.

The previous owner of my 47 Clipper wisely installed an after market temp gauge which I rely on as I really want to tour in this car. Driving this car from my my home in SC to the new house in Fl in the next couple of weeks. Really looking forward to it.

Unique to 35. Even Seniors, I think.

So sorry to hear about your health. You and the website are treasured more than you know and your fan base is much vaster than you realize.
I cannot imagine how I could be of help to you but if something comes up there you need some assistance with something I can help with by all means do not hesitate to contact me.
