  1. I am listing just the basic trunk rack. I do not have the rest of the pieces...arms, supports, etc. Will take $175 for it, plus your choice of shipping.
  2. I have this nice set of headlight supports for, I am told, a 1937 Plymouth. I see no cracks or chips. $50 with free shipping to lower 48 States. Other locations...let's talk. I take PayPal.
  3. I have this limited edition (400) print of a 1929 Peerless Six-61 roadster. The image is 12x19 and with the border it is 18 x 24. It is in excellent condition. The artist, Thurston, signed it in 1980. Just look at the story behind the picture. It is a cold windy Fall day...only a few dead leaves still on the branch. The guy is trying to entice the gal in green to go for a ride in his new snazzy roadster. She turns her back, saying "I'M NOT GOING WITH THE TOP DOWN!"...and the gal in blue approaching, saying,"THAT looks like fun!, I'll go". I'll take $75 for it free shipping in a tube. I'm into the other 'P'...Packards, so just thought a Peerless collector would appreciate this choice item. P.s. I also have a super neat companion print of a Dodge.
  4. I just added more pics of the Auburn. I understand that Paul was at a car show and someone clipped the front bumper.
  5. I guess by now the Auburn world has heard that my good friend, Paul TerHorst is no longer with us. I have been asked by the family to help in publicizing the availability of his prized Auburn. I have only the one photo to include with the listing. 1935 Auburn 851 Cabriolet Two-door convertible with rumble-seat In-line 8 cylinder, dual ratio rear axle VIN# 2611E / Engine# GG3468 Color: Cream with red leather interior Senior Badge from CCCA judging; CCCA National Meet 4/21/01 judging score 97.25 Sorry for the long delay in posting more pics...

  6. For Sale: Flexbeam right lens #13890 1933? Chrysler $250 free shipping lower 48 Bob Supina 281-606-9950 ThePackardMan@gmail.com
  7. I was just perusing the list of regions and did not see National Capitol listed. What's the story? Also, I was a Founding Member of the SugarLoaf Mountain Region. Their web site was last updated in 2016. I tried to send an email and it failed. What's up?
  8. Recently Turner Classic Movies played Harold Lloyd's 1928 movie...Speedy. A Pierce was used in one of the scenes. I am a Packard guy, so I don't know about the ornaments before the archer. Was it standard in '27-28? I am assuming the car is a Pierce because of the flared headlights...
  9. My subscription expired and today I returned the postage paid renewal notice with a note...."save your postage...take my name off your mailing list." Bottom line is that I felt guilty...all the trees that had to be cut down, all the pulp processing generating pollution..the ink....for me to read 3 pages of Packard stuff....and then the effort and pollution to recycle it.
  10. Seriously, I DID make a retreat at the Monastery in Berryville....way back in 1961. As I recall, their big marketing effort was not fruitcake but a black bread...I think...pumpernickel. They stocked grocery stores in Fredericksburg, VA.
  11. I have this 34.5" stainless trim with offset mounting studs. Any idea what make and model used this trim? Certainly there must be someone out there who needs it more than my shelf does?
  12. Walt, (and all other viewers...) while you are perusing your old accessory catalogs, please keep an eye out for the running board trunk. Here are a couple pics of ours. It is sitting on the running board of our early Third Series sedan. On both sides are fittings, I assume are for securing the trunk to the running board. Note that the back door can clear the trunk,, but it would take a gymnast to get in or out of the car with the trunk rigidly fixed, so I am suspecting that there must have been some intriguing hardward to swivel the trunk for ingress and egress, so does the catalog depict the hardware? Thanks for looking...
  13. Yes, there was a Standard Eight in '35-36 which were considered Seniors and on the same design as the Twelve. They had the same body shell, instrument cluster, etc as the Super Eights and Twelves. In 1935 Packard delved into the lower price point to try to hang onto market share by bringing out the 120. Then in 1937 they brought out the SIX. The 120 and the Six are considered the Junior line.
  14. Actually, the 37-39 Super Eight is virtually the same 320 engine that was the Standard Eight of the earlier years. It is a 9 main bearing engine.
  15. On December 18 my long time friend, Paul TerHorst passed away. I am sure that many readers have known him or at least crossed paths with Paul at Hershey, Chickasaw or other meets. The family as asked me to help publicize the availability of his unfinished Packard. Some of you may have seen the car at Opus II in Warren, Ohio back in 2009. Here is the information I have been provided. My understanding is that the car in located North of Chicago. 1937 Packard Super Eight 1501 Convertible Coupe Roadster Senior Packard, 8 cylinder, 320 engine Convertible with rumble seat Vehicle # 1019-251 / 134” wheelbase Motor serial # 398-353 Speedometer reading: 29,522 Mechanical work is done, car runs Regal Blue color, body is painted, DQE/DAL numbers available in file Needs installation of hood, fenders, and rumble seat lid, and misc. parts; parts are primed Same owner for 55 years Extensive car history file Price: $ 70,000.
