VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Car was found under a carport, being parked there in 1972 due to a failed treadleVac brake system. I acquired it in 2002 from the second owner who owned it since 1960, and have tinkered on it since. The engine was seized due to the long storage and I have acquired another running packard 352 engine to swap it out with. I plan to finish this car and keep it for a long time.

Modification Detail:

Car has the GM Oldsmobile automatic Headlight dimmer system installed from a Packard dealer. Evidently some Packard dealers would install the Autronic Eye system on their cars if requested by customers.
