Re: 1953 Packard Clipper Deluxe 6V Battery

If your wiring is old, it is possible there might be a bit of a short somewhere and it drains the battery over time. The best thing, of course, would be to replace all the wiring. Or you could run down all the wiring for shorts. Or, you can do as I do and disconnect one of the battery cables from th...

Re: wiper motor 1950 henny

Re: 1952 Patrician - Derham or Henney?

Thanks, Dave, for checking it out and giving us a report. Too bad we can't credit any coachbuilder definitely. A very interesting car and an ambitious restoration project for sure. Hope the current owner succeeds in restoring it!
