  1. The steering wheel controls and window crank are earlier than our Third Series (1925) models. Gear shifter and plate look the same as our two Thirds. Distributor housing looks the same, but I have not had a chance to check any of the casting numbers.
  2. Many thanks for the prompt response! Bob
  3. What year/model of Chrysler used the flexbeam right headlight lens 13890?
  4. Scott, did you ever solve your drum problem? I ask because I have two old drums that I have no idea what they belong to. Do you have a pic of yours? Have not seen them in several months, but I recall they have 7 holes.
  5. Just found this posting.... Did you get what you were looking for? Perhaps I can help with some pics....we have a 1003 with orig 8,743 miles and PERFECT interior. Also some parts from a 1015 parts car.
  6. This spear is 47.75" long with a point on one end and the other end is closed. I suspect it is for a rear fender because the closed end is not tapered for a front door to open. I guarantee this is NOS...it still has some of the flimsy brown paper wrapping that Packard used. I acquired this piece and 50 others from the widow of a Packard dealer. Make me a reasonable offer!
  7. This is an NOS piece of trim that I recall seeing on a '51 200 at Salado several years ago. It is 15.75" long. One end is closed and tapered for door clearance; the other end is open. I suppose there was a short spear covering the end. This unit has no dings, but does have fine scratches from 69 years of shelf shuffling. (A few other pieces of period trim that I have show remnants of cheap brown paper covers. Undoubtedly, Packard never anticipated usage 69 years later. Heck, Packard had not even been in business 69 years.) $30 + shipping. P.S. This trim might fit other models. Pack
  8. I can't speak for 1942 models, but I have corporate documentation stating that the 1937 Super Eight and Twelve sedan models could be ordered with the Formal Division. Back around 1966 I saw a Super Eight with the division and there exists a Twelve in Houston with the division. (Has anyone checked Jim Hollingsworth's book on the 1940s to see if he treats the topic?)
  9. Back in Jan 2017 I posted a crank that no one could identify....so I will try to link it here for your enjoyment....
  10. Thanks...I have contacted them and am waiting for a reply.
  11. The PAC Directory lists this car as belonging to a Peter P____ in Eureka, CA. Unfortunately, both phone numbers are disconnected. I have sent a letter to the listed address but have not received an answer. Has anyone seen this car? know of its whereabouts? Have a picture of it? I am trying to put finishing touches to my forthcoming book on the 1937 Seniors, including pictures of all custom bodies and would love to have it included. Any help in tracking it down would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Going through deceased uncle's slides I found this one....towing a dump rake on my grandfather's farm. When I was about 12 I raked the hay fields on a dump rake...but behind two horses. Hopefully someone can positively identify the car. Thanks for looking...
  13. Our 1937 Packard Super-Eight shop manual stipulates AC 103S or Champion Y-4 plugs, which are 10mm. At some point of time the head was rebored to accept larger plugs. When we acquired the car, it had AC Delco 45S plugs. The 45S places the spark deeper in the combustion chamber. Is there any scientific reason to place the spark in any particular area of the chamber? Second question..... If an engine specifies a non-resistor plug, does using a resistor plug cause a positive/negative/neutral effect? Thanks for checking out this post.
  14. Wish I had saved some of my paper mementos from the Langhorne Speedway from the 50s and 60s!
  15. It has been noted that the AACA Library and the Simeone Museum will be the recipients of the collection. Does anyone know how the division will be made? Which institution will receive which items?
