  1. The steering wheel has lever on left that says closed or open (throttle I assume) and other lever says retard or drive range big knob on dash says primer and then to right of that a smaller know that says nothing on it I assume all of these play a role in starting the car?
  2. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: BigKev</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Then according to the Packard Engine Serial number reference on the website, it would be this: 1927-4th Series Six (423, 433) Engine Serial Range: 95007 - 120407 288 CID 6 Cyl 81 HP L-Head, Inline, 7 Bearing, Mechanical Lifters </div></div> Close enough but it's a 426 not 423. Friend of mine's car and he's having trouble starting it, he just got it not long ago. The owner's manual that came with it says Packard six but it has the model 526 typed on it and it appears to be the original one. The illustration of the dash in the manual isn't like the one in the pic I posted. So the start-up procedure is confusing.

  7. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: 1928Packard526</div><div class="ubbcode-body">327 — I'm with Speedster on this one. The car on the ebay listing is a 1928 526 6 cylinder car. The seller even says as much in his posting. The pictures confirm it as well. Since I have a 526 sedan I can make a close comparison quite easily. Just why did you think it was a 1929 640 or 645? Is there another car out there? Pete P. </div></div> Pete, I never said I was looking at a Packard on Ebay, I said I MIGHT have found one I wanted to buy but didn't say where it was. But thanks anyway.
  8. vehicle # 178471 frame # 178289 engine # 178876c this is the info seller gave me.
  9. I might, I repeat MIGHT have found a 1929 Packard 640 2 dr. with rumble seat to buy. The problem is I know very little about these particular Packards and their worth. I looked on the Packard website and there seems to be more than one model like this, how do you know what it exactly is?

    After further review the car is really a strong #3 and not a #2. Still a really nice 39 Super 8 Conv. I'm thinking somewhere around $70K-$80K.

    Glad I checked here first. My original thought was to offer around $50-$60K, guess that would have been an insult. According to you guy's a #3 car would be worth more that $60K, right?

    I got a line on a 39 Super 8 Touring sedan conv. in legitimate #2 condition. I'm just not sure what to offer the owner in today's crazy economy/market. What do you guy's think? It is really a strong #2 Packard.
  13. What kind of truck are you pulling with?
