Steve,

 

I searched a bit but couldn't find anything.

 

Chrysler (incl. Imperial, DeSoto, Dodge and Plymouth) used Autolite electrical parts.

You might want to contact AMS Obsolete and/or Andy Berbaum and see if either can give you

leads to your search.  Both companies have websites.  I would either email or call them.

The A.E.A. Universal Catalog of Original Equipment Service Parts, 1945 edition, makes no reference to a VRB-4002-A.  It lists regulator VRB-4012A-1 for the '39 Packard Super 8, but goes on to say "Use VRP-4002B", apparently meaning that unit was not available then.
The 1947 "Original Auto-Lite Service parts Catalog" is in agreement, except instead of specifying the regulator for "Packard Super 8", it just says "Packard".

Steve,

 

If you think the VRB-4012A-1 will work on your car as per Dave's post, there is one listed on

eBay now.

Thank you for all your replies everyone, and it's supposed to be VRB-4012A,  NOT VRB-4002A. It was a typo where I got the info from.  So as I see from the info supplied, VRB-4012A (the original) can be interchanged with VRP-4002B and/or VRR-4005A? And I would have no problems matching these to my generator?   Oh and Bill - I just missed bidding on the ebay VRB-4012A.  Durn!
