Re: Looking for a Derelict or unfinished Darrin

Hello Bob, it is nice to know there is a fellow Packard fan close to me. I live close to Kokomo. Maybe we can get together sometime at one of the meets close by. I've just moved up here about a year ago and don't know where they have any but maybe you can steer me in the right direction. I'm going t...

OT: This is off topic for Packard but very funny

This is an ad for a Volkswagen Beetle. Look at how the guy explains how much it is worth compared to what he wants for it. This is very funny! Gene

Re: Looking at 1941 Series 19 Style 1471

Thanks JD, I'll be sure to count the stainless strips for the fenders and verify the engine number to be correct. I'll also take a very close look at the dash components and window seals. You've been very helpful. I think this would be a stately car to calmly cruise around town in and a reminder of ...

Re: Looking at 1941 Series 19 Style 1471

I'm sorry, this is the Packard 160, 148" wheelbase so your description appears to be "on the money" based on what I've been told. The asking price is $4000 but I'm hoping to get it for around $3000 considering that it is partially disassembled and I'll have to be careful that all the parts are there...

Looking at 1941 Series 19 Style 1471

I'm considering a 1941 Series 19, 7 Passenger Touring Sedan which would make it a body style 1471 if the information given to me by the owner is correct. He said that the previous owner had started restoration before he bought it and rebuilt the brakes and bought another rear fender since one was in...

Re: battery tender

I'm like Dave in thinking that it is a question for the mfg but I'd be really hesitant to start it up with the tender hooked up even unplugged. There is usually a place where you can disconnect the wiring without taking it loose from the battery. Is this connection where you can get to it? That is d...

Re: Engine weight

Thanks Dave, it loos like I need to go for an engine stand that will support 2000# and has greater length in the legs than I am used to. Thanks for your rapid answer and for saving me the time and wasted money on the cheaper unit. I've got a gantry crane that I may put a strap on and use to support ...

Engine weight

Does the 327 or 288 engine weigh more than 1000#? I'm looking at a 1000# engine stand from HB they have on sale. Gene
