1937 120 trunk emblem

I need either the complete trunk emblem or just the oval cloissione which has the coat of arms and "Packard 120" on it. It is the emblem that is shaped like an elongated grille with the cloisionne attached.

Windshield wiper tower retainer 1937 120CD

Does anyone have the sintered metal retainer clip that the windshield wiper tower screws into for a 1937 120? I broke mine when trying to replace it on the driver side(I don't think left and right is different). This is fastened by two 6-32 screws. Anyone with a tip on re installing this part I woul...

Re: 1937 138 CD

I am sorry and I apologize!! You asked about the quarter window and I read it as the rear window. The quarter windows are different and I don't know the answer to your question. I assume you have tried the ones I suggested. I wish you luck and I certainly hope someone can help you. You have a rare c...

Re: 1937 138 CD

I believe the 1937 138CD rear window is the same as the 120 CD and all the rubber for those cars are available from "Steele" or one of the supp;iers that also sellSteele products. Max Merritt is one of those suppliers. You can purchase any of the rubber products for that car. They are readily availa...

Windshield wiper motor

I am helping a friend remove his windshield wiper motor and have done nothing yet except look at it stuffed away where no human hands are supposed to go. I'm seriously considering some new glasses with bi-focals on the top as well as on the bottom. I worked for several Packard dealers in the 50s as ...

Re: CUP GREASE

I have looked for a grease that will substitute for original cup grease for some time. I find that chassis lube seems to run right through the distributor bushing and I wasn't too satisfied with that. I never had the feeling of confidence that it was being lubed sufficiently. I found a "Lubriplate" ...

Re: Intermittent engine miss - 356 motor

Most vacuum lines from the fuel pump are between cylinders one and two. You could have a malfunctioning vacuum side on the fuel pump. I've seen this many times in years past. You mentioned number one and number two cylinders seem to be non-funtional and that is a classic indication of fuel vacuum pu...
