Wanted: Break Drums for '56 Clipper Custom

Post by kennethbhill » Wed Apr 13, 2016 7:10 pm

I’m looking for a full set of brake drums (2 front and 2 rear) drums for my ’56 Clipper Custom. New ones would be great, but I’m sure they are hard to find. Used drums that have been refurbished/turned will also work.

I’m also in need of the rubber break lines for the two front wheels.

Do you have what I’m looking for, or can you refer me to someone you may have what I’m looking for? Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

Finding new ones will be a bit of a long shot. Mike Dulinski (see Yellow Pages on the main website for contact info) is a very major dealer is used parts for 55/56 Packards and would be one of my first calls for drums, very reputable guy; also I'm reasonably confident Kanter Auto Products would have them. Why not ask Kanter to mail you their catalog specific to the 55/56 Packards!

As to brake hoses, NAPA has them and probably Auto Zone and others.

Gerry, aka Packardssouthwest, may have them too.

I called Kanter, and they don't have any drums in stock. Thank you for suggesting Mike Dulinsky; I've reached out to him.
