Good luck with your new project. Sounds like you have experience and a good idea of what you're into. Just be prepared for a bit more Ferrous Oxide and a whole lotta fasteners holding things together.


I have a friend who is restoring a '36 120 sedan if you'd like to commiserate. I think he'd be amenable.

If you're not having fun, maybe it's your own damned fault.

From the Literature Archive. It's in Spanish but it shows the different body styles:

Thanks for that Cartrich. Can you tell me anything additional about options? My car for example has the spare tires mounted to the fenders and the fold down rear rack for the travel chest. Were these something specified at the time of purchase or order of the car?

Also, does having these additional features make this anymore rare of an 120b example?

sidemounts and a rack were probably added sometime in the last 80 years. the 998 was the bottom of the line car, not usually dressed with options. Rack on a business coupe is unusual given the volume of the trunk.

That said, I had sidemounts and a rack on my 998. ;)

There is a salesman's data book on site which you can downloadhttps://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/downloads/1936_120B_Databook.pdf that will provide quite a bit of info on your car's features.

An owners manual is also available if you don't already have one.https://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/downloads/1936_120_OwnersManual.pdf A paper reprint of that owners manual might also be available at the PAC online store if you wanted something for your glovebox.https://www.packardclub.org

There are also accessory manuals for the 36 120 that might have a bit more info on what options were available than is shown in the data book. Didn't find either on site for download but here is a black and white version someone made which has a file size small enough to post on the forum.

Great forum fella's, I really appreciate the info. Looks like whoever ordered this car accessorized it. I also have the radio, the clock, the deluxe hood ornament, and the rear wheel skirts.

Follow up - As everyone everyone predicted, clutch face was corroded to the flywheel. Through an old friend of my fathers, I was fortunate enough to meet another Packard owner (and nut) who offered to help me diagnose and solve.

Lower flywheel cover came off with no struggle. We rotated the assembly via the ring gear and a screwdriver, while tapping the clutch cover. Once we got some movement, we used a thin metal ruler to slide between the flywheel and surface, all while pumping the clutch pedal. In total we burned up about a 1/2 hour.

I learned that my '36 120 is one of only three registered in my Province (Nova Scotia), new friend being one of the other owners. He was impressed by the accessories, apparently the working AM radio, ash tray, lighter and clock are hard to find if at all.

Lastly he left me with suggested maintenance recommendations like oiling the throw out bearing (never would have though of that) with the intent of firing her up in the next few weeks as time permits.

Looking forward to the first drive!
