...Wonder if any of the treatments for getting other persistent smells out would work -- or at least make it more palatable. Some have said ammonia, lemon, or tomato juice will help with some odors.


Howard (HH56), a couple of years ago, -> we talked about ozone treatment. It works, bank on. How to do an Ozone Shock Treatment?

The author mentions a center armrest as somthing, that was special. My wife and I would wish a bench seat instead of a center armrest in modern cars. And it reads that "the hydraulic windows are remote-controlled". How else than remote-controlled a hydraulic window can be? Attached an artistic impression of a direct-controlled hydraulic window.

I had penguins knocking on my door asking for firewood this week.


All the winter, snow and coldness seem to be overseas at the moment. TV delivers truly apocalyptic pictures. Stay warm out there, friends!

Bob, my reply isn't exactly, what you are looking for but that kind of abbreviations was usual at later Packards (1940 Eight, 1941 180, 1947 Super Clipper, 1950 Eight) too.

BDC, if this is what they claim it to be then it is a 1508, solely built in 1937.
But its former occupants in Moscow often claimed to be something what they weren't (truth-loving, properly elected, ...).
What is wrong, the front door hinges, the bumper, wait, I believe that you especially miss the support bar behind the spare wheels.

Actually, the casting around the shaft erodes and the gap tears up the packing causing the leak. A solution is to punch a hole in some brass shim stock and glue it into place using sealer followed by the packing.

Tim, thanks, very knowledgeable.

Is that a new thing to use chrome-plated cap nuts? No way this is original :)

jw4, when looking to its black wire wheels and headlamp trim rings, I would expect black hubcaps too. But PackardInfo caters for all tastes, capless image attached.

All the more curious now why it stayed around that long. By 53 switch was really old news and was the same type most other mfgs used...


Howard (HH56), maybe new to those who bought a car in 1953 but didn't buy one in 1949 - 1952.

Once again the Russian Twelve with red Stromberg. The waterpump needs to be sealed.

A "town horn" was installed in a Renault Dauphine as well as in one of the best S-Class Mercedes W126 (image attached). The Phantom offered an extra-loud highway horn.
