  1. Car is located in Monroe, MI south of Detroit, or about 20 miles north of Toledo, OH.
  2. I'm not shy, I'll say it. It's ugly in an almost childish sorta way. Then to tag it as a Super Snake? Ok if you can't say something nice, right? How about, seems like they had fun building it...
  3. Now that you've had time to reflect given our nation's current events, admit it. You want it. How upset would you be if you missed it when this virus gig is under control. Within a few days she's going for a joyride. Nothing else to do, no events, nowhere to stop and grab breakfast, so why not just enjoy the loveable solitude that a car like this can give you? Besides, she's due to stretch her legs anyways and I'll stop and get som envy pics along the way...😉
  4. Late to the party, but you need to go to: www.autocolorlibrary.com There you will find the Ditzler intermix color charts. If your list includes some form of a 4 digit number (ie, IM-1443) it'll be there. Some colors don't show due to 'net picture posting, for example any light "iridescent" color (metallics) tend to transmit as a dull dark grey. Still, it's enough to give you ideas and buying a qt for spray out and color match is $$$ well spent. Good luck, and this info will help anyone's color selection efforts.
  5. COOOOME AAAANND GET IIIITT!!! I thought I'd yell this time to get your attention 😉
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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...
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Amazing set of mint condition AQs, none missing.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. It's nothing like a 32 Chevy or even Cadillac bodies. The sills can be an issue but only the worst of the worst. Best way is one side at a time and section rather than full sill. Roof slats are pretty straight forward, even door wood isn't rocket science. Packard used the best of everything, including engineers and craftsmen. Sedans are the future. With most rag tops well into 6 figures now those elegant luxurious sedans are gaining in the pecking order.
  16. Complete set, mint condition, includes multiple indexes. Available for pickup at Hershey spaces OBC 23-24 or will ship at cost only. $2,500 which is below avg price. PM here or:734-637-1421
  17. I have several sets of NOS vintage Thompson/TRW Pistons for Plymouth, Dodge and Dodge trucks that run the 3 1/4 bore flathead 6. I have .020, .030 and a limited number of .040 and .060 oversizes. Set of 6, pistons with wrist pins, $75. Can pick up at Hershey spaces OBC 26-27. Will ship as well but AFTER Hershey.
  18. Will be at Hershey, many other vintage Cadillac parts 41-47 and a few 31-38 items as well.
  19. Will be at Hershey, spaces OBC 26-27. Many other Buick parts, 38 and up, and Cadillac parts 41-47.
