Very nice. Wonder what the extra switch is next to the ign switch and if something dealer or aftermarket.

Antenna? Rear Speaker? Ejection Seat?

Ejection seat is possible as is a rear seat speaker although the switch appears to be a pull type so maybe not speaker. With the flat sided and not quite beige knob, the switch almost looks like one of the Cole Hersee universal types. First thought it was for a vacuum antenna except the antenna is on the roof. Fog light switch appears to be in the dash switch cluster so am mostly curious now because there is not many more factory options available for a 47 that would need an added switch.

well i have no clue....i may or may not have dash shots from the early 80s to see if it was added or not.

i was wondering about the little Shrader valve on the back...must have had air shocks at one point maybe.

Not sure what the black knob might be. The heater and defroster switches appear to be on the dash right side and there appears to be a fog light switch on the left under the headlight sw which would be standard factory switches and locations.

If it had an Electromatic Clutch, that switch would either go where the fog light sw is or if an unused space was available on the right where the fresh air knob is it would go there. If no spaces, fog would most likely have one of the under dash switch installs. Packard would not likely have put any switch in the dash but maybe a Dealer would.

Speaking of the fresh air knob, it would be nice if there was an underhood photo showing lower down on the carb side. The photos they took do not go low enough to see if the duct work is present or if the knob is dummy.

The Schrader valve at the trunk is most likely for the spare tire check and fill hose.

Probably for the factory accessory spare tire inflator that allowed pressure to be checked without having to open the trunk.

I have several photos of the car… but no real dash photos or engine either. But I do have a photo of it being pulled out of the garage in Dallas in 1966, one of me sitting on the hood at about 1 years old…. And one of me standing in front of it at age 5ish.

I’m more wondering if anyone knows who bought it so I can keep track of it.

That is one beautiful Custom. Interesting mounting for the outside mirrors. Hank, wish you luck in finding it.
