Title: ROGER FIREDOME Got some news for you PACKARD
Post by: Steve on June 07, 2010, 02:12:45 PM
Roger
 
I just found out Moores Auto Salvage has a 56 Packard 400.  He said the front was pretty rotted, but it has some real nice trim and is still pretty complete.
 
I suggest you PM Mark and give him your list ASAP before oll the good stuff disappears.

Steve said "how'd you know I was talking to Mark???? (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

Hey thanks for the heads up Steve! Believe it or not, my car needs
almost nothing...it's a pretty amazing original survivor. That's the
only reason I sold the '58 DeSoto to get it. I was tired of dealing
with rust...  Man, those 400s sure were flashy!! mine is just sort
of a plain Jane Clipper Deluxe. It's the same Persian Aqua as that one....

About the only thing I can use is a lower front bumper IF it's straight
and pretty much dent free... the old lady hit a bunch of curb stops and
mine is bent & twisted,  it'd be cheaper to get a good used
one than to have mine straightened out and re-chromed.



What's Moore's number?

I'll give then a try - I've called them in the past and never got a
return call... should never have mentioned that I knew Steve I guess ;-)

Gave them yet another try a cupla weeks ago. Email.  Once again, no reply.  Even if to say they didn't have it. 
Next time, shame on me.

You can PM Mark too.  He's right there. . .   Moores Auto
 
Or. . .if you insist  (605)348-4926[color=#000000 size=2] [/color]
 
[color=#ffffff size=2 face=Arial]Like I said, I have to go to Moores the end of August anyway.  I can pick up the bumper and bring it back.  Then it's within 3 hours of you.  I have to get up to the farm sometime. . . [/color]

That lower bumper section is pretty beat up right down the middle. i dont know what it ran over but it must have been big its pushed up and back about an inch in a 2 1/2 foot section.

Too bad, sounds like it's bent in the same place in mine - the design makes it pretty vulnerable.

I do need an oil pan, if it's not  bent - mine's been poorly  repaired - how much for oneadoze?
