Re: Looking for identification help

I think there are a couple of errors at play here. The 1940 160's were assigned Models 1803 (127" wheelbase,) 1804 (138" wheelbase) and 1805 (148" wheelbase.) In the Model 1803 line the Club Sedan was assigned the body number 1376. Model 1807 (138" wheelbase) is a Custom Super Eight 180; there were ...

Re: '38 Senior wheel color

Bill,
The color looks right to me, I would figure it's Gypsy Brown also. I don't think the junior series had a choice of banjo wheel colors as the seniors did. That's a might fancy gearshift knob, the 120 had a deep brown plain knob without any brightwork on it.

Re: '38 Senior wheel color

The wheel pictured looks just like one that was on a 1937 120C 1092 touring sedan that I used to own. IIRC it was shown in the accessories brochure as an option. The '37's hub cover/horn button looked different than the one pictured, again IIRC it had the Packard crest centered on it. So I think the...

Re: Interior Fabric Protection

I'm no fan of mothballs either. Recently I discovered 4 moths in my 1002. In researching moth repellants cedar wood was listed. The big box hardware stores sell 15 square-foot packages of cedar wood planking for around $30.00.The planks are thin, about 1/8- 3/16 inch thick. According to the packagin...

Re: my packard's on fire....

I might suggest a fourth lesson: Never ever drive a car with an unsecured battery. That was the root cause of all your other problems. Battery hold-downs have a critical role to play in protecting the electrical system. I learned that lesson the hard way decades ago, Fortunately I only had to replac...
