If the car has overdrive, the transmission and controls are worth far more than the asking price.

John,
C2C has floor and trunk pans that are pretty close to fit.
$350 and a roller sounds like a bargain. What about the engine and trans?

What else on the engine needs put together? Sounds like with the head back on the main block is back together?
Standard transmissions usually aren't trouble prone. Might need a new clutch by now.

Sounds not much more than a parts car to me. If you need the parts or want to sell to get your money back. Resto is not cost effective in these models.

Great to hear Mike. Does this mean my diligent, relentless, unwavering and hopeful pursuit of PackardInfo members entering their Packards into the Registry is paying off?

The "_5_" identifies the vehicle as a 1950.

What is the number on the Briggs tag (small metal tag near the heater box)? First 4 digits of that will be the same as the first 4 of the vehicle number.
