  1. My Packard 8 roadster is all original and nice survivor. Ideal I would like to find someone who is replacing their original top and top boot. So if anyone has a original 2nd thru 6th series 1926-1929 (6 or 8 cylinder Packard) top boot, I would be interested in buying it. Also, if anyone is replacing original tan canvas top material from any high end car from the 1920's 1930's I would also be interested in buying that old material. Material from a touring car might be better for doing my roadster top. That way I would have enough material for the Packard roadster top. Any leads appreciated. Maybe some restoration shop might have old top material from a job they are working on? Thanks, Jim
  2. Thanks James for your reply. I am in Minnesota. My Packard 8 roadster is all original and nice survivor. Ideal I would like to find someone who is replacing their original top and top boot.

  3. Thanks for the reply's. Is Mouton an uneven cut and long and lays flat in many directions rather than like a "crewcut" fine dense wool carpet that was use in the high end closed cars of the 1930's
  4. Exactly what is Mouton carpeting from the 1920s and 1930s that may have been used in high end cars from that era? Is it a type of goat or sheep fur?? Is it a luxurious overlay one would place over the existing wool carpet? How was it made??? Is there a manufacturing company brand name for Mouton carpet??? Who made this type of carpeting??? What type of carpeting would be used in the 1932-36 Chrysler Custom Imperial sedans and limos? I would think a very high end dense wool carpet. Thanks, Jim
  5. Here's some pics of a Radio that came out of a 1929 Packard 645. I was told the radio head was custom made to the shape of the Packard Radiator in New York City. I also have the speaker and the tube/amp box besides this head in photo's. It has the original bracket to attach to the steering wheel column and the on/off key and switch. P.S. I am looking for a radio for a 1930-31 V16 Caddy. We have the radio head in/on the dash, but we need the correct speaker and tube/amp box. Please P.M me if you have these items. Thanks, Jim
  6. Thanks everyone for your comments. I am not going to put a coating on the inside of the water jacket. I'll use corrosion inhibitors in modern antifreeze and hope the metal of the water jacket doesn't have any pin holes. That was my only concern. Also, here is a pic of my car taken on July 4th 1931 when the car was 6 years old. The man driving the car is my great-uncle Gilman of Glenwood , Minnesota. Thanks again everyone. Jim
  7. Any thoughts on some type of coating that could be painted on the inside of a 1920's steel water jacket. The steel water jacket looks good on the outside with the original paint, but lots of pitting on the inside. My car is a survivor car and I don't want to paint the outside of the plate. I did bead blast the inside. I am having a new metal distribution plate made to replace the rusted out plate. It would have to be some type of coating that would not flake off and cause troubles in my radiator. Perhaps I shouldn't worry about it and watch to see if it springs a leak rather than risk a coating that won't adhere??? Thanks, Jim
  8. Thanks West, I'm sure there is a top boot for a roadster out there somewhere. I'm sure I'll find one someday.
  9. Would anyone have a original Packard roadster top boot for sale, or one I could use for a pattern? Any condition O.K. I believe the canvas boot is the same for 6 & 8 Cylinder cars from 1926 thru 1929. Third thru Six series. Thanks, Jim
  10. Yes, Right-On 1937hd45. This Great Link is for American CCCA Classics!!! Not Micro Cars, A Hudson Street Rod P.U. or Race Cars.
  11. With all due respect, this car is not a 1932 Super 8 9th series 903 Packard in my opinion, but a 1931 Packard Super 8 8th series Model 840 with the factory/dealership (mainly front end & bumper upgrades) to make it look like a 9th series 1932 Super Eight to help the dealers move the last of the 1931 Packard's.The pure 1932 Packard had a much different dash board and a very stylish thin slant windshield and the top would fold into a recessed area behind the front seat rather than sitting on top of the rear body section. This car has the thick straight up and down (no rakish slant) windshield in the style used in close Packard's sedan's and coupe's from 1931 and before. More attractive on this car with the top up rather than down compared to a true 1932-34 Packard Conv. Coupe. when the top is down and almost even with the top of the rear body. From the ad I take it the seller is using a NADA price of $352,300 for a true 1932 Super Eight rather than this car a 1931 Super Eight. Still a very nice car and the Disc wheels are great looking on all 1924-31 Packards as well as the rear spare, hence showing off the long front fenders and body lines
  12. Thanks for the info Huptoy!!!! Greatly Apprecitated
