Re: Rubbers for doors & windshield.

I'm not positive about car but Steele Rubber Products has most of the "special" rubber products specifically made for many Packards. But many of the rubber products are generic or sold in bulk at places like Restoration Specialties & Supply.

Re: Duane's 48 Limo Super 8

If sleeving can repair the cracks, you should only have to do the cylinders that are affected, not all 8.

Cormorant Article

There was an article in the third quarter Cormorant by Ed Ostrowski titled "Packard's Downfall". It made some interesting points about the factors in Packard's demise. We've all heard the term "bathtub" to describe the new style of many postwar cars. The article had a new description of the "modern"...

Re: PackardClub.org Traffic

While the Packard Info site has a wealth of information, I like the Packard Club site for posting comments particularly when including pictures. The PC forum site allows you to insert pictures in the text and caption pictures with comments under each picture. Makes it easier to explain what is in th...

PackardClub.org Traffic

Where has all the traffic gone on PackardClub.org? I put the exact same post about a 1941 Packard 160 that I saw on Hemmings on both forums on July 17. The posts were both placed in the categories of "For Sale" near the bottom of the both forums. On PackardClub the were no replies and 16 views. On P...

My original battery tray was rusted beyond repair but the mounting legs that bolt to the frame were good. I built a new tray from 1/8 flat steel with angle iron welded to the sides to hold the batteries in place and bolted it on top of the original legs. I used dual Optima 6V batteries but a similar...

Re: Valuation impact of an engine swap

Not having seen more pictures of the entire car, it's hard to tell just how "as built" the overall car may be. Does the car have any rust, does it have top quality paint in the factory original color, has the interior been redone in a totally original manner, etc. Looking at the engine pictures it's...
