1948 Packard Tours Montana

I don't know how to get the article connected here, but there was an interesting article written in the "Missoulian" newspaper (Missoula Montana), and in the A4 Montana Section, on Monday January 21, 2019. It is titled " 56 Counties Or Bust". An Alberton, Montana bookstore owner and her husband reac...

Re: Trim Wording For 1957 Clipper

Thanks Dave,

I've read and heard different things, some conflicting, so I just want to know exactly what I'm doing before I start buying parts. I will contact Joel. Thanks for the lead.

Trim Wording For 1957 Clipper

I'm looking for some spare trim parts for my 1957 Clipper Town Sedan. (1) Letters on the hood spelling "Packard". (2) Rear fender lettering spelling "Clipper", and (3) Trunk wording: "Packard" and "Clipper". I believe that some or all of these may be identical to those of earlier (1955 or 56) Clippe...

Re: Engine Block Cooling

Glad that the solution was simple! While on this subject I would like an opinion. I have a 23rd series Packard Eight Deluxe Touring sedan; a model 2362 with the 288 engine.

It covers Packard engines in air racing, land speed racing, oval track racing, and boat racing. I didn't learn anything new (but then how much about Packard history is new ?), howeve...

Re: Golden Anniversary identification

Hi, Places to find original paint on a 23rd series Packard, include: the 5 wheels, firewall, underside of the trunk, and above all, Under the chrome tail-light housing. In this location the original gold paint may actually be un-oxidized, as I found it on mine. Also, I found the build sheet on top o...

Re: Golden Anniversary identification

Hi, I just spent an hour typing a reply, after logging in. When I pressed "submit", it asked me to log in again, and when I did, everything I had written disappeared. I don't want to do it again now, but if you e-mail me your phone number I'll call you and we can talk. I own the Gold Packard feature...
