N. Carolina to SoCal?

Anyone happen to be traveling anywhere near this route in the near future?
I have a transmission in N.C. I need brought to Southern California. Happy to pay for your help.
Cheers, Greg

Re: 1938 Bumpers

Thank you for that info Dave. It gives me two more questions.

1- Is the 1601 8 cylinder car considered a Junior? I thought that term applied to the 6 cylinder cars only but now I'm not so sure.
2- What is the difference between the 1192 and the 1172?

Cheers, Greg

Re: 1938 Bumpers

Noted. Thanks Dave. I'll admit I am a little unfamiliar with all of the correct terminology but I'm a fast learner.
The bumpers I'm seeking info on would be for a 120.
Cheers, Greg

1938 Bumpers

Hi Guys,
How difficult is it to locate a complete pair of bumpers for a 1938 8 cylinder touring sedan?
Could you also give a rough estimate of what one can expect to pay for them, from replateable cores to ready to bolt on condition please?
Thank you, Greg

Re: 1938 Trim Tag/VIN Info

Dave,
If one were to purchase a reproduction patent decal, what procedure is used to ink or stamp them in the same fashion Packard did?
Also, would the section for for naming the selling (or delivering) dealer have just been hand written in place by that dealer?

1938 Trim Tag/VIN Info

Hi Guys, I'm looking for a little numbers info for 1938. As I understand it Packard did not use a metal trim tag this year but rather a decal or sticker of some sort instead, which almost never exists today. So is there no way to know for certain what the original color of a particular car would ha...
