I bought this about 6 months ago. The car was last driven in 1979. The man who owned the car must have known it was going to sit a long time he cover the complete car with oil or maybe cos Moline.here is a before and after a quick wash.

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

I had to take out valves to clean rust off stems. Also removed cam 2 lifters were split so those were replaced. also replaced timing chain and front engine seal and front motor mount and removed and cleaned pan although there was not much slug in it. another thing I did was replace all wheel cylinders rebuilt master cylinder and replaced all brake hoses. The tank will probably come out today to get cleaned. Not sure how much I am going to do on this car.

my car has a buddy - 1472 short wheelbase touring sedan. Your running board trim is 120 style but complete. Which interior option do you have? There are at least three upholstery types.

There was a Zell Packard dealership in Baltimore, MD. It may have been established there after the war. Dwight Heinmueller will know.

120 running boards and 120 tail lights. I suspect the originals were taken for a 180. And the front splashers as well? I like the hood ornament.
