Re: my packard's on fire....

FYI - you are not the first person to create these events. I was with someone who I'll just refer to as "Noel" set his seat bottom on fire with the same skill and aplomb as you. We pulled to the roadside and pulled the front seat bottom out. Quickly. Very Quickly. Been there, done that. Battery box ...

Re: 1941 Packard 120 Convertible Restoration

Condolences.
No archive for original color, door jambs or inside of doors usually reveals.
Top is available pre-made from Hirsch and others.

This forum and Packardinfo.com are your best resources.

Re: Found packard

21st series engine based on casting date. What does not compute is the length of the frame, looks way long, so I am registering my guess as a xx01A chassis, fitted with a replacement engine.

Loading Parts for Hershey...

OK – I am packing for Hershey to be a vendor for the first time. Most of what I have is 35-41 Pre-war Packard, junior And senior. Additionally, I am bringing nearly all of my postwar stuff and a smattering of “everything else”. To be honest, there is no way I could bring everything I have, especiall...

Welcome to your next adventure. Pretty much basic response, 15w-40 Rotella is a common suggestions, as is 85/140 gear oil and DOT 3 brake fluid, i.e. there is nothing special about servicing this car.

Re: 1937 120 C Running problem

I concur/second what Dave has said. I will add emphasis (based on personal experience) to making darn sure the heat riser is fully open. This describes exactly how the car will act when the heat riser is even partially closed, or if there is any other obstruction (read mouse nest in muffler, etc) in...
