  1. It attaches to the hood latch rod which you can see in your photo with the hook on the end. The strap clips to that.
  2. No 124 leather is red. If you look at Packard sales literature, red was optional with all paint colors. Packard was in the business of selling cars, not making rules. Jr leather was different than Sr leather also.
  3. Contact Tom Rasmussen at Odyssey Restorations in Minneapolis - ODYSSEY RESTORATIONS, INC. 8080 CENTRAL AVE NE, SPRING LAKE PARK, MN 55432 --- 763-786-1518 Tom is one of the top Frankin restorers.
  4. Do you want to sell the T handle? packard12s@hotmail.com
  5. I can count the bolts for you and send you a photo. packard12s@hotmail.com
  6. I think it probably had a seal that was glued on. I think they used 3 different methods - the continuous channel, the clips and glued on. What parts are you still missing?
  7. I might be interested - my email is packard12s@hotmail.com and I am in Illinois.
  8. Are you looking for ones that are walnut and have a place for a lighter and ashtray? I may be able to help you. packard12s@hotmail.com
  9. Is there a channel that holds the seal on your car? Some of the cars have channels that run the length of the door edges. Other cars have the holes for the clips.
  10. The Os should line up when closest to each other.
  11. I agree Walt, most people get the stripes too thick.
  12. The flake white looks like a bright white to me - I have a Packard color selection book.
  13. West, why do you think the fender striping was optional?
  14. I'll make some up for you guys. I made some for K8096, but missed him at Hershey that year somehow. The photos are all wrong, other than the one set of the 37 phaeton which is only partially wrong as to the routing and placement of the front clip. John, your 37 needs the correct ones too if you want a set, and the 36 posted by OD is completely wrong. I have seen them all over the place. People go to so much work to do their engine, and then just give up at the end and put them willy nilly anywhere they like.
  15. I can loan you some with little pieces broken off the end where it goes over the stainless trim, if those are good enough. packard12s@hotmail.com
  16. Are there any swap spaces available? I find that I can go to Hershey at the last minute and I could use some spaces. Where is the car trailer parking? Thanks! Dave Mitchell packard12s@hotmail.com
  17. Just take the cooler unit out of the housing and have it cleaned and checked for leaks. I never block them off.
  18. I've never seen one that is correct in good shape. I've been collecting 38s and parts since 1989. I had two correct ones from cars that I own and had a mold made from them to replicate the original plastic when I restored the 38 Derham. I have a core if you want to have one done.

  19. Have you checked Restoration Specialty and supply in PA?
  20. I think I have one of these. packard12s@hotmail.com
