  1. 1939 Super 8, model 1703/1272 touring sedan. Front bumper, headlights and hood side trim conclusively establish.
  2. Franklin? Syracuse? I have a set of 1925 Franklin doors buried in the warehouse, but have not studied the latches....
  3. I know this car. Thankfully it was parked and unoccupied when hit. Hard. I passed on the "opportunity" to buy it. Rainman's car is in LA. I saw it a couple years ago on a garage tour.
  4. Ummm....thanks for noticing my car for sale. Also listed in the Packard forum with more pictures.
  5. Have just relisted on ebay after dealing with scam stories all summer. People see it advertised elsewhere for giveaway, then do a little more research and eventually find me, then wonder why my price changed from the giveaway price. Hard to explain that I am not trying to scam anyone. Anyway, the price is asking 55K. Last 3 that sold were, 60, 62.5 and 64K for very similar cars. I'm not looking to set any records, just place with an honest buyer.

    The car is mine. I am David Flack in Dallas. I pulled the car off the market this summer when it got advertised by scammers...too much confusion when my ads were live. I was just thinking about re-listing the car on the market and am surprised that the scam ads just won't seem to die. Disgusting. I've never advertised on TopClassics. The car is in my garage. Come see and drive it. I am known in the Packard community....if you are looking for this car, please contact me.
  7. March 2018, 3 weeks and 2,205 miles in a 35 s/c phaeton. 1/2 qt. oil, topped up the radiator and dealt with one overnight flat tire, tube wearing on inside of tire. Multiple rear ratio changes, plenty of fuel, 3 people with full luggage/tools and a spare axle bound to a frame rail. No complaints from the Auburn or the passengers. Well, maybe one...the wiper motors are noisy. Yeah, I'd say a bargain for a fully useable CCCA tour car when properly prepared...
  8. if you have any left, I'd like one of the E 1/2. Thank you
  9. Answering from the hip, such that 39 Packards also used the R6.. the relay is straighforwardl, I have an extra, $50. Kickdown again is a straightforward - merely a interruption via the ignition circuit to disengage the solenoid, and as for the cable, again, straightforward engage/disengage. I strongly suspect if you compare the R6 Dodge overdrive details to the R6 Packard information, you will find strong similarities. I answer this based on it being a BorgWarner unit, not manufactured by Dodge/Packard. I think I have a Packard cable too. More info is posted in the service manuals section at packardinfo dot com.

    Don Axelrod will have headlights or parts at Hershey. I have some misc. 33Su8 stuff at home, starter, generator, waterpump, etc. Some small trinkets with me at Hershey, GAF 21-24
  11. And room on the trailer coming back for a few bulky items...my cell is 214-549-1250 to confirm space available and routing.
  12. I have a load coming back, really don't want to drag an empty trailer....help!
  13. Circumstances suggest that I should bring my 18' open car hauler to Hershey as I have a car to bring home. Anybody have anything needing to go one way?
  14. West, I looked twice in my stuff and I'm sorry but negative on an orphaned knob. Update to list above, just now packing dash items, 36-120 (also separate NOS gauges), 37 115c and 120, 38jr, 39jr, 40(jr) 41 senior panels with good plastic, gauges, lighters (37-39, NOS 1940 tan plastic, etc) starter buttons, rheostats (including NOS 1940 overdrive rheostats), NOS 36-120 gauges, much 37-42 gauges, etc. Also packed a box of dome lamps and courtesy lamps, most all 33-41 including a pair of the rare oval tonneau lamps 35-37 senior, several 38 and 39-42 senior dome lights and interior courtesy lamps, etc. No exterior runningboard courtesy lamps. As I said above, there is no way I could bring all I have, so please, if you are pre-war part hunting, please come see me, or contact me beforehand.
