Door Panels

I have no door panels or rear panels in my 50 Club Sedan. I have looked all over the web for replacements and found nothing. I've only found 4 door panels. I was thinking of an upholstery shop to reproduce them. But I have no templates.
I've got nothing.And there is only one little shop in my small town.And they don't seem to be interested. The guy didn't even know what a Packard was.

make a template off your door, get newspaper little masking tape put it on your door cut and punch out what is needed
then go back to the uph shop buy the hard board backing and cut them out ,save a lot of money when u go to get them upholstered
i do it that way all the time

You should be able to find someone on here that has the same model you have that could provide pictures for reference. I would branch out and find a different shop that is interested once you have a photos of that the panels should look like. Find a auto upholstery shop as opposed to a general upholstery place.

The pattern differs by model (I know that the 22nd series 8 and 8 deluxe have different door panels). So make sure that the ones you copy are for your model

BigKev's idea is a good one. Do you have the stainless trim for the door panels? It would probably be helpful if you could identify the trim/pattern needed for your model, e.g., Standard Eight, Deluxe Eight, Super Eight or Super Deluxe Eight. Since Packard dropped the Custom Club Sedan with the 23rd Series, it can't be that.


Edit: bkazmer beat me to it.

SMS in Oregon can make them for you and MAY have a template if they did some before. Look them up and give a call or email!

Thanks. I'll try SMS. I live out in the sticks.I have nothing even remotely close to me. I have to use the internet to get anything.

But it still beats living in the city.

Is it a 23 series or 24 1950?
If left over '49, "-5-", I have a 49.
Best to look at pictures of '50 interiors. I might have a '50 interior picture, if needed.
There's a trim code that should be on the cowl body tag. But some of these were stenciled or inked and aren't legible. I had to reverse match to my cloth.
You can look up the trim code and corresponding material in the parts list.
My panels are here but not "good", but the upholstery guy said he could make new ones. I bought the material. The bottom kick panel is vinyl, but bought leather for that.

You can DYI, get a piece of underlayment or door card and cut out to fit. Auto upholstery shop should have. Sandwich thin foam and the cloth. The hard part is sewing decorations and seem for the bottom and making the arm rest. Spray adhesive and glue to the panel then fold over the edges and staple. Trim excess. Install with trim screws. Don't remember but may need some clips. There up in the garage loft covered up. Let me know if it's a 23 then I can take some photos.

I believe he said it was a 1950 but then someone else indicated that the Club Sedan had been dropped for the 23rd series so I’m a bit confused!
