Need source for door seal for 37 Packard 120 Convertible Coupe

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a door seal for a 1937 Packard 120 Convertible Coupe that does not require metal clips to install it because there are no holes in my car for the metal clips.  I am assuming the original door gaskets were glued in place rather than held in place with clips. Steele sells door seals but theirs requires the metal clips.  Has anyone else run into this situation?  Looking for someone who reproduces the seal.

Thanks,

Bob

Is there a channel that holds the seal on your car? Some of the cars have channels that run the length of the door edges. Other cars have the holes for the clips.

I checked and no channel.  I did have another 37 Packard Convertible owner contact me and say his car does not have a seal so I am assuming mine didn't either.  I know my early 30's Buicks do not have seals and all seems well.  Thanks for everyone's help.  Great bunch of Packard folks out there always willing to help.  Now if I can only find the few missing parts I need I might still be able to take it to this Summer's Packard National Meet.

I think it probably had a seal that was glued on. I think they used 3 different methods - the continuous channel, the clips and glued on. What parts are you still missing?

I still need the following major parts to complete my 37 Packard 120 Convertible Coupe resto.  

 

Running boards

Passenger side belly pan next to the engine

Inner fenders (both sides)

Handle for the trunk or rumble seat lids

 

Thanks,

Bob

Dave,

I left you a PM and also sent an email but it came back as undeliverable.  My email address is pint4@new.rr.com.

Thanks,
