Yes the whole situation was and is so sad. Regarding the specifics you wanted, probably not happening. I do remember that the rod shop was trying to sell the engine as it had no value to them. They also were having a tough time finding replacement rear fenders as it was a unique style for Packard.

As being a business limo, I do remember Rick saying decisively that it was a business limo. Something about leather in one section, non-leather in the other. About the trim and ashtrays and such, I'm clueless. I don't think I have any interior photos, but do have a few exterior shots.

If you search this website about Packards in the movies, check out the movie "The Natural" starring Robert Redford. I posted pixs of Rick's car twice in the movie. Once in front of a big hotel and also a street scene. FYI, the movie was filmed in nearby Buffalo and Rick like me auditioned and made the movie. I was also chosen but never was in the movie. Darn...The Natural time theme was in 1939.

I'm familiar with the car but never took a good look at it. It was never restored but the owners have had it stripped and are in the process of putting a modern transmission and engine in. The shop is Horsepower Motor Works in Victor NY . Ask for Scott as he is doing the work. 585.924.9199. Hope this helps. I live about 10 minutes from the shop if I can help.
