Where can I find seat covers for my 1952 Deluxe 200

I may have waited too long. Labarron Bonney is out of business. Is there any other place that sells seat covers for antique Packards?

Re: 1952 200 Deluxe 4 DR project

Have been working on the 200 Deluxe off and on this year. I will post pictures as soon as I can. The entire body is primered and the major areas of repair/replace have been done. There are still a few areas that I need to do a better job of blending/transitioning to the original body. When I replace...

Re: 1952 200 Deluxe 4 DR project

I am trying to get all of the interior metal work done before it gets too cold. Usually by now it's already too cold here in Nebraska, but we have had a very mild latter fall here. The next 4-5 days are supposed to be very mild. I have done the driver's side and will try to finish the passenger's si...

1952 200 Deluxe 4 DR project

P3310002.JPG I bought this 2 years ago with the intent on doing a full restoration. I soon found out how costly this would be even if I did all of the work myself. I have since decided to make this a driver (not daily). With the help of Dave Czirr, Howard, and Tinman, I got the car to run properly....

Re: Body panels - 1952 200 Touring

I have the same year and model and the same rust in the same areas. I tried C2C but they only have floor pans and inner and outer rockers. I didn't try Kanters. Since the rust on mine is somewhat contained-about like in your pictures, I had just planned on cutting out and flanging. Then making new p...
