!941 180 "Inner Trim Rings"

Help!

My 1941 Packard 180 Limo is just about finished but I'm missing the 4 inner trim rings for the wheels.

Here's a picture of one. It fits just under the hubcap.

If you don't have all four, I'll take whatever you have.

(Note that Bill Hirsch only has the hubcaps and outer trim rings, not the inner trim rings.)

Meanwhile...the wife and I went up to Post Falls, Idaho to check out the car and DRIVE it. This is the first time it's been on the road since the 1960s! It's got the original paint and interior and the engine and transmission have not been touched. After forty plus years of sitting in an old garage it's been going through a "mechanical restoration" to make it roadworthy.

Here's a very short video of the car that my wife shot with her phone as we cruised around Coeur d'Alene. The car ran and handled beautifully thanks to Glenn Vaughn and his crew.

(Forgive the sound - I was enjoying the wonderful whisper quiet of the car, but my wife being a videographer, musician etc, couldn't take the silence and added the music)

Loved your video, and the tunes. My 1942 180 Limousine is at the restorer for a full frame-off, and hopefully will be roadworthy by this time next year.

Neal,

Went back and looked at your Owner Registry entry. Interesting history.

Sorry, I have just one and I'm looking for three more. I bought what I thought was a set of four off eBay but they turned out to be for a 15" wheel. These will be going back on eBay this Winter.

Hirsch had them for sale at Hershey this year. They were about $35 apiece. I didn't ask if he had them in stock, but he had them on the board with a price tag.

West - thanks for the lead. I sent Bill a note and will see if he still has them. I'm hoping to find used ones so they'll match everything else on the car. If they're too perfect and shiny it'll look like a 95-year old woman with a botoxed face...'ya know it just doesn't match the rest...

I got a set of used hubcaps, 180 cloisonne and the outer trim rings from Max Merritt. We put the more worn and chipped ones on the passenger side so it looks like Mrs. McCormick's chauffer may have kissed the curb a few times.

Also worth checking out - John Ulrich gave me a tip to check out Bob Drake's Ford Parts. He has brand new inner chrome rings for 16" rims at $60 each.

I have Ford outer trim rings on my car. I like them because they're ribbed, just like the inner trim rings, the running board molding, sidemount molding, and the belt-line molding. Everything is ribbed, why not the outer trim rings? It looks really nice, actually.

Hello Packard41:

I have one inner ring left. It is as good as it gets without saying it is NOS. I thought I had a complete set of 4, but that is not the case. You can have this one for $35 plus the actual cost to ship.

Hirsch still does sell his new version, but they are $70 each. See:http://www.hirschauto.com/prodinfo.asp?number=PACHUBCVR

Send me know if you are interested. It came from a 1941 (160) convertible sedan I restored several years ago.

Best, --Roger--

Are the Bob Drake hub covers shown here exactly the same as the Hirsch? If so, that is an interesting cross reference.

From the photo by Bob Drake of the Ford inner ring they do not appear the same. Attached is a photo of an original ring.

Ford rings have narrower ribs and there too many of them. Parkard rings have wider ribs to match the ribs on the hub cap and there are only 3 ribs. For only $10 more (each) you can stay original and go with a correct copy from Hirsch.

If you only need one, then my offer still stands.

Best, --Roger--
