  1. Guess what? You didn't miss it, it's still available. I know, right? All I can say is this one's a sleeper. A no rust ever California car with nice everything. I dont see how an interested party could pass it up. Seeing is believing.
  2. That's not a Packard body used for the cab. If it is it's something really custom coachbuilt but I'll hang with it not being Packard. That said, and rolling with all the other price talk, if it could be brought back to running condition it really is worth close to the advertised price. Who's willing to build a "new" one? And even if you did would it have the spirit this one has? No. Since it came from a noted enthusiast I'd be willing to bet a good cup of coffee it has a real back story as well. Some tangible history to season the kool factor beyond dollars and sense. Just my .02. Wishing all a happy New Year.
  3. Decisions, decisions. New Escalade for $80K or a 47 Cadillac conv for much less? I wonder what the 47 will be worth in 5 years. Imagine that, almost literally owning it for free. Just a thought. Enjoy...
  4. I love the site, don't want to create the wrong impression. But like home sales, if it sits too long and doesn't sell "...must be something wrong with it.." is easy to set in. My Super Clipper was here for over 2 years. It's likely one of the very best deals in quality and price for a senior series Packard. Just short of 9000 views, yes nine thousand, and I still have it. I'm not interested in give away pricing that helps drive the values of everyone's car down. And the "...nobody wants these cars..." discussion is as wrong and boring as it was in the 70s. This Cadillac is pretty much a dream given the quality of the sheet metal and overall above average condition. Not lowering the price much either, especially since Hagerty has #1 at $134K, #2 at $92K, #3 at $59K. It's not a full 2 and above the average 3. Someone's going to be dancing in the street if they step up on this one. We can hold out. Thanks for the comments. And no, I can't trade because it's not mine but the Cord sounds interesting. You're welcome to send me a direct msg and we can discuss what you have.
  5. One more week and it's getting pulled from here. I've come to view this site page as a picture post and little else.
  6. These fit 6cyl Mopar engines from 217 thru 230 CID. Nice new pistons in proper oversizes (who needs std, right?). Shipped in the lower 48 for $95 or pick up in Monroe, MI for $75
  7. Amazing set of mint condition AQs, none missing.
  8. While lovingly admired at Hershey I brought it home. Look close, other than a necker's knob at some point not a single crack to be found. Even that minor scar could be just sanded and smoothed over. I'll listen to reasonable sincere offers but it's a really good one.
  9. Armed with lovely sunny but chilly Michigan weather she's taking us to lunch today. Hasn't been started in weeks and it was over a month then. Boom. Lights right up, but why shouldn't it? It's not a project it's a perfect tour condition car. Now if someone wanted the most perfect icon of a restored 47 Model 62 Conv this would likely be the lowest priced restoration ever done on one. "C'mon Jocko, you can't be serious. That nice?" Yes, but don't take my word for it, come and see for yourself. Or ask me to take an up close hi-res photo of something you'd like to see. I won't pick on the car that auctioned at Hershey last week but it brought $88K all in and needs things. I'm $20K less here and heavily documented as well. You'll be sorry you missed it.
  10. 34Lasalle is right on, she's an "updated" 31. And I agree, it's not a detriment to what's offered but a more accurate description should accompany the offering. In some cases (perhaps this car) it's a desireable change, but looks exceptionally "sexy" on the 840 roadsters (true roadsters with curtains and folding windshields). Still, nice car.
