VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Purchased by me years ago in Cheshire Masachusetts, perhaps 1973 ,I have registered the car and taken itto shows and cruises from time to time. I have not had it running in several years and have it at present in storage in a dry cement flored barn without heat. I have no interst in selling the car but now that I have restored several cars in my collection, I am planning to put time effort and money into it. I placed oil down each cylinder upon storage but worry if it will turn over OK. If need be I will have engine rebuiltand I understand Kanter Brothers in Boontown, New Jerseyhave the parts I need. Brakes may also need attention although worked fine when I put ti away. I imagine it may need wheel cylinders rebuilt and the like. It has standard windows, Ultramatic, load leveling, power brakes but no power steering, radio, fender skirts ect
Vehicle Modifications
MODIFICATIONS:
Other than the wrong upholstery and an old restorative paint job done in close to factory Packard blue and white colors but apparent GM colors very close to original I know of no modifications made . The automatic transmission was working fine when I put the car away but Iworry that gaskets and seals might be shot from sitting around. I believe the transmission was rebuilt before I bought the car in 1973.
