Re: but first i gotta build the garage...

" It's great to have the space to store and work on you pride and joy! " Sure it. Built a single car garage about 3 years back but, because the local council wouldn't approve a double garage, built it BIG about 40m2. Because it's a wooden frame with a 10' ceiling, was able to put up a high "shelf" a...

Re: Found packard

I'm thinking, and going out on a limb here, that it could be a 1940 120 Chassis. Reason being the chassis has the pre-war "Safe-T-Flex" type front suspension with the torque arms running back to ball type anchors on the chassis. And, it is a 120 engine. Then, looking at " ( G or 6 321541D) # on engi...

Re: 1928 Chinese coin with a car image

Rich, Unable to tell what the car is from your google link. As you say " Car image on coin is an artist interpretation " and accordingly is not identifiable. Best if you can scan or photograph the image in the book you mention and post that here. Although names may not be able to be discerned, the f...

Have you contacted Kanters, they advertise at the top of this page? They are likely to have one. Or Max Merritt.

Re: Hirohito's 1935 Packard

I'm thinking that the numbers offered as VIN's are instead TPN's(Theft Proof Numbers), being the large embossed numbers in a Packard's firewall. OR are engine numbers, 1935 Eights engines being within the range 385001 -> 390301. Either way Dave should be along shortly and hopefully can provide bette...

Re: Are 1948 parts wort taking with car?

I bought my '50 Eight Sedan in February. Since then I've had three '48-'50 owners contact me chasing parts. I'm in Australia and one query, the first, came to me from a guy in Norway with a RHD Convertible which didn't have brake or clutch pedals. Fortunately there was a guy in our club who'd just d...
