Well after reading a few of these blogs i have decided i will share my day to day work on my packard. I had never really heard of packards because you just dont see that many driving around. I had been looking for a project car for a little while when i saw the one i have now on craigslist. It was in the barter section so i decided to offer up my fishing boat for it. So me and the gentleman talked and i made the 45min drive north to caldonia wi to see it. When i saw it i knew i wanted it. It was still sitting on the trailer he picked it up on so i threw him the idea of letting the trailer go with the car. He agreed so i became a packard owner. The car is complete with everything needed for a good restore. Im not doing a frame off restore im cleaning it up and making it a safe reliable driver. Im doing all new interior. Im doing the entire front clip by removing the fenders, already have one removed, so i can clean and repaint everything up there. Im sending all the outer chrome pieces out for recrhome since they show the age. The fuel system needs to be redone and i have alreadt started that. I need to do some rust repair to the driver side floor as in repair i mean replace its gone lol. The rest of the car is really rust free even the frame is in great shape. So i will post pictures as i go along. I also work on another packard engine its in a P51 mustang a packard built rolls royce merlin so ill have to get some pics of that for you packard enthusiest.

Welcome! I'm looking forward to seeing pics of your car. While you have the fenders off, great time to replace brake lines and go through that system. I live in Caledonia. Surprised I never saw the car while driving about unless it was out of sight or on a side road I never ventured on.

Here are some pics of the right fender off and the interior mostly out. Its time to do some scraping and grinding inside to get the floor clean. Then its time to fix the drivers floor.
