Re: 1940 Packard 180 petronix

I had one on my 41 160. Works great if you have 6 volts to the coil. I ran a dedicated wire with a toggle switch from the battery to the coil.

No. A 740 and 745 would have four doors, and the sweepspear on the beltline, along with much bigger headlights. Also, a 745 would have the long sweeping fenders. Wheel size would also give it away. The 7267/733 had 20-inch wheels, while the 740-745 had 19-inch wheels.
This is a very rare optional 3-door hood for the 726/733 models.


Thanks for the info

West, wouldn't the doors in the hood sides make it either 740 or 745?

I had good luck with 89 octane gasoline. May be better for vapor lock. Try it.

I used a Pertronix in mine and was completely satisfied. I had a large voltage drop through my ignition switch which caused hard starting problems. I ran a dedicated wire from my battery to a toggle switch hidden under the dash and then to the coil. This allowed 6 volts to the pertronix. I never had a problem starting after that. I might suggest buying an additional module just in case yours burns out while on the road.

Re: Skirts wanted for 1942 Packard 180

I bought them from a Texas firm, cannot remember the name. They were newly manufactured and primed. They fit over the fender and had rubber welting around the outside where they fit against the fender. You can see them on my avatar. I thought I would add a picture. John

Just google teardrop fender skirts. I got a pair for my 160 and they fit perfectly.
