6. Longtime previous owner Dr. Wendall Spreadbury. Motor has rod knock issue, otherwise a sweet car. I really considered buying it, but didn't have a 6 engine handy. Parts car is just that.

I have a rebuilt one available but it’s prewar. They interchange but there are some differences.

David, is Wendall still with us? I always enjoyed visiting with him at the meets in Salado. Hope you survived the record cold, snow and utility outages. Stay warm.

Yes, Wendall still has a bit of fight in him, however, being an octogenarian, he is coming to terms with the timeline to get projects done or moved on. This would be a great car for a beginning Packard owner with some mechanical skills....
