Re: 1940 Custom "180" high speed gears

You might check your rear ratio, if 3.92, you already have the best ratio possible. As for anything lower, not available. There was chatter a few years ago about 3.54's being made, but that source had died. As for an overdrive setup, I can supply everything...about 2500 depending on details.

Re: 1939 Limo - dual sidemounts

One of two things, either 1940 covers or Henney covers. The Henney covers are distinct in the chrome hinge that the cover swings from, while the 1940 Packard covers came completely off the car.

Get volunteers to help guide it out....

Re: Considering buying a 1937 120

Thermostatic shutters were available on certain deluxe models in '37, but it is very uncommon to find them... For me the acid test is to drive the car for 30 minutes. Fast, Slow and Normal, highway to rutted pavement. Feel the steering, brakes, suspension. Then park it and leave it running for 15 mi...
