  1. Here is the car after the chassis was restored and on a cruise in the neighborhood. The only difference between when the photos was taken and now is that the grille is off and the radiator has been re-cored. The last photo in the series previously posted showed the car back together.
  2. I appreciate that some people have taken the time to look at this car. The quote that was made "It is likely this seller bought high during good times and has too much invested for the current market and is determined to recoup." is very much incorrect. The car was purchased in 1975 and much of the last several years have been spent finding some of the various parts and enjoying life as we all know happens. As posted previously, a lot of work has been done to the car, and done correctly. The asking price is 12,500. I am not trying to recoup my investments in the project. The cost is not ba
  3. Partially restored 1933 Packard 1001 Chassis restored to original state. Engine rebuilt correctly by a gentlemen who has restored several pre-war and post war packards. Engine runs great. New wiring harness. Gas tank relined. New radiator core. Have a replacement carburetor bowl. EE-22 (good luck finding another one!) Wood rot has been replaced. Nearly all parts are accounted for, including the "impossible to find" correct 1933 taillights. The couple of missing pieces can be easily fabricated. NUMEROUS EXTRA PARTS. If you do not see a part on the car, I have it in a box or sitting on the sh
  4. I appreciate it Mal and Dave, The headlight shown is a depress beam. Some of the 33's had solar lenses. The downside to this is there are different lenses for the left and the right. I am in search of the solar lens that is for the left. It is marked TOP LEFT on the front of the lens. Also says SOLAR HEADLAMP at the bottom. Thanks guys for keeping an eye out. I'm sure one will come up...eventually!
  5. In my quest to restore my 1933 1001, I have discovered several missing parts. If anyone is able to help, please let me know. <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:Compatibility> <w:BreakWrappedTables/> <w:SnapToGridInCell/> <w:WrapTextWithPunct/> <w:UseAsianBreakRules/> </w:Compatibility> <w:BrowserLevel>MicrosoftInternetExplorer4</w:BrowserLevel> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 10]> <
  6. Just curious as to if you were able to locate replacement parts. I asked a few people I know and they did not have them.
  7. Restorer32, The Chrysler tail lense is similar in design, but larger. I have attached an image. I have been unable to locate a machinist who can confidently cnc machine glass to fit within the bezel. I have been told that the license plate lense is different for the 900 series packards; in addition, I have been unable to locate one of those lenses. I didn't see them on merritt's site. Please keep the information coming guys!
  8. Hello all, I am still in search of these lenses.
  9. Dean...where are you? Anxious for updates!!
  10. I have an application in which I am converting the key switch and floor starter switch into a single unit, much like modern vehicles. I am having difficulty locating a 3-position switch off-on-start. I have found some at the local auto shops, but they are absolutely huge and would not incorporate well into an old dash. I am wondering if anyone out there has located a switch similar to what I am looking for. I have a feeling that there is a tractor switch, boat switch, etc out there somewhere that will fit my application.
  11. Hello All, I have come across the following tail lenses, but am confused as to which one fits which year, make, and model. Approximately 3.75" in diameter Any help would be greatly appreciated.
