  1. Out of curiosity, is that Continental kit aftermarket? Looks like the rear bumper is angled downward(?). Something just doesn't look right in the rear end of the car. Thanks! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
  2. 1930 7-45 sedan. Only one known?

    As Trimacar stated, "This is a big country, and there are still cars hiding out there collecting dust......" A perfect example that I just saw this AM on the Packard Club website under Packard vehicles for sale is a 1928 443 Series Packard Club Sedan, non running, but in great condition for only $20K, covered in dust, but appearing to be in good condition. So, yes, they are out there!
  3. 1920's-30's Packard Distributor info Requested (see photo's)

    Jim - I would try asking Fred over at Max Merritt. He may know. Seems like when a question is asked on this sight a month might go by before a response is given. Not like the Buick Forum that when a question is asked within hours you have a dozen responses! Jay El Dorado Hills, Ca 1934 Packard 1932 Buick 8-86

  6. 1933 Packard Provenance?

    Well said, Matt! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA

    Did anyone mention Faye Dunaway driving that big beautiful Packard Convertible in Chinatown? Jay EDH, CA
  8. Jim - It's hard to get a lot of these parts. I just went to the Norcal Packard Swap Meet, where I usually find something, but to know avail this year. I do have a contact for you as I saw his bin full of Oakes Locks, etc...Also, disc wheel hubcaps and others: David Moe 7627 44th Street N.E.

  9. IT RUNS ! 1925 Buick coupe back to life !

    What a smart looking car! Cool setting with the field in the background. Like the movie "Field of Dreams". "If you build it, they will come!" Jay EDH, CA 1932 Buick 8-86 Victoria Travelers Coupe 1934 Packard 1100 Sedan
  10. 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible. Outstanding!

    Matador Red or Re-Sale Red??
  11. My God man, what have you done?

    Damn, Marty! All your cars look GREAT!!!!!!!! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA 32 Buick 34 Packard, etc..........

    I'm with you, Don - As long as I've owned my '32 Travelers Coupe, she's never had water on it. I clean the same way..............dust with a magnetic cloth, spray with a little detail spray, then wax one area at a time. The car has always looked new after doing this. I think I just don't want to spend a day removing water spots and cleaning for a couple of days after that where the water has migrated thru the moldings, etc..... J
  13. Bouncy Tires

    Id say worn tie rods and ball joints. King pins? Or misalignment. Had them all in the 32 and 34 Buicks and the 31 Cadillac. Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
  14. Marvel Carburetor...Help!!

    Jeff - Thanks for your findings in regards to the Marvel carburetor. I think answers like this will help all of us down the road. Jay 1932 8-86 Victoria Travelers Coupe
  15. Carburetor Heat pipe fabrication

    It's always great to see that the Buick enthusiasts share information and help everyone else out on this Forum. In addition to the 32 Buick 8-86 Travelers Coupe, I own another car which shall remain nameless, as that Forum is very "secretive" about sharing information. Go BUICK! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
