Bob & Ray Packard ads

Does anyone have, CAN anyone find, assuming any survive, any of the ads Bob & Ray did for the Boston area Packard dealers, one of their sponsors, circa 1948, when they were on WHDH? If not as irreverent as Henry Morgan, Bob & Ray were not above playing sound effects and inserting comedy voices, sighs, during commercials, as they did later on WOR in NYC in the early, mid-'70s.

We can only hope Ray Goulding's character, Calvin Hoogavin, commented, during the bathtub years, on "....the new Deluxe Eight...the new Custom DeLuxe Super Duper Eight,"
and so on.

Ray Goulding died way too young in 1990, but Bob Elliott is still around, and some of you may've seen his comedian son, Chris Elliott on various tv shows, and his granddaughter Abby Elliott on Saturday Night Live. In fact, all three generations performed on SNL.

Meanwhile, trust Cardina--- ooops, um, Mr. JW will forgive
this wee comic divergence as it pertains to Packards.
