Let the ride decide, the production quality of the first short add is remarkable. The clarity of style provides the impression of an educational film. Today's adds are overfraught with much too much impressions, colors, information, rhinestones, gimmicks, sounds, emotions, features, confetti, ... and with that they are arbitrarily interchangeable.

Most probable a misunderstanding, brought by my poor English. -> There you are looking for a 1941 Packard One Eighty, formerly in posession of Mr. McGahey. But -> this newspaper article suggests, that his Packard wasn't a 1941 Packard One Eighty (or he owned different Packards). To me it looks as if you should look for a 1938 Packard with installed cellarette.

At the moment in -> Paris but my base camp is in Germany.

Friends, while supporting Allen (archiveman2977), I haven't forgot about you and your need for a daily dose of infotainment. During the last weeks the talk revolved around 1938 but did you know that vehicle air condition came into being before that time?

Hello Guscha,

Re: #174, 175

Yes, the Pampa news article covered Dave McGahey's 1938 Packard. My cousin said that he bought and sold many cars.

Interesting article about air-conditioning in long haul bus service. Public transportation enjoyed air-conditioning first in Pullman brand dining cars, then complete trains from the early 1930s.

You responded that you lived in Paris. Truly a multi-faceted city.

See ya,

Allen

Oh, I see.
Please find below information about ambulances, most if not all based on Buicks, furnished with a "cracked ice" system. I've turned the main articles into PDF-files (attached) to make them better readable.

In some places putting a person on ice means to hide them. In others it means to kill them but in this case, I guess if the dearly departed rides in the back of that hearse laying inches above a layer of cracked ice there is a whole new meaning to the phrase.

Wonder what the cost comparison of the vehicles might be with the Henney being on a Packard chassis. Both were built in the same time frame but the Henney has a real refrigerated AC system under the floor even if it was a repackaged commercial unit vs the unit on a Buick chassis with cold air relying on a layer of cracked ice. Also be interesting to know the weight difference and how much ice is needed before each use.

Not to sure if this would be of any interest, fund it in Service Letter Vol 16 No 18, Sept. 15 1942.

Read with special interest the article on the Albuquerque dealership which was the distributor for most of New Mexico, Santa Fe included.
