Need some help with my floors...

Hello, I have a 1950 standard eight 4 door. My floor boards are gone around the edges. I am looking to build floor pans, rather than buy them, not only because I have more time than money, and also because this car will be used and driven in the summer as a daily driver. I got the car for next to no...

Packard compatible wheels

Maybe this should be in Drivetrain, but I just went with the closest subject. What are you driver guys doing for wheels? When I bought my 50 Standard Eight, it has one "correct" steel wheel, which looks like it either uses a full wheel disc, or a center cap with trim ring, while the other 3 are chev...

Re: Dual exhaust

That was my intent, but I was told by an older gentleman that they used to make a split manifold or split header for packard straight eights. I am assuming it's was completely custom and made from scratch, but was wondering if anyone else has come across this. But yeah, I definitely want the dual lo...

Dual exhaust

Any Eight owners out there that retained their straight 8 but put dual exhaust on it? How was it done, and what did it take parts wise? Looking into this for my project. Thank you

Re: 1950 straight 8 interchangeability

So I would have to get the whole drivetrain if I wanted to go with the 356? Is.it even possible without major fabrication to swap it out? Only curious, because I am building a driver, not a numbers matching original. And fabrication is no worry of mine either, but just wanted to know compatibility s...

I have 288 ci, and was wondering if I could go to the 327 or 356? Any info w...
