My 390 is as budget as you get.  Stock original 68 2bbl cast pistons, stock heads, mild "non blower cam"(.53 lift).  Did put stud kit in it too and bottom.  Rebushed the rods, double keyed the crank for no balancer(hub only).

22 yrs of playing with it.  5# boost on cold evening.  Stupid fast?  No.  Need better parts?  Absolutely.  Love to put good parts in it and turn it up but BFG radials don't put up with it now.  Oh, its a 4 spd with 3.89 gears.  Runs 3000 rpm at 65 mph and gets 10 mpg with dual 660 holleys.
I love it, it made me smile

Seen that a few days ago, and the bottle literally exploded. Anyone who survived that is lucky! I cringe when I see videos of people using a propane torch to warm them up to increase the pressure in them. They have heated blankets for that purpose.

Here's a short video of a small extinguisher that gets dropped and knocks the valve off. Now imagine a bottle twice that size releasing all its pressure in a fraction of a second. Or worse, an Oxy or Acty bottle.

If the breakerplate and shaft is the same as a points distributor
you may be able to convert it to duraspark parts

I remember when the halogen lights came out. Friends dad had a gas station
with a repairshop. He installed a lot of halogen lights, we took a bunch of the
old lights and installed on our "car", built out of a salmon crate with rearwheels
from wheelbarrows and frontwheels from a lawnmower. Yes big and littles ;D.
Down from my house is a long straight road with no streetlights. we pushed the car
down there and waited untill there came a car, then we flicked the switch and lit up all
lights and run and hide 2 7 inch 2 5 3/4 inch and 4 foglights on the rear wing ;D ;D ;D
most cars stoped with screatcing tires ;D ;D ;D

Hate to disappoint you, and maybe I'm wrong, but those exhaust crossover manifolds are indicative of 272, or regular 292 engines.  A HD truck engine would most likely have had ram's horn exhaust manifolds, governer carb, large stem sodium exhaust valves, etc.  The C2TE blocks were some of the best 292 blocks cast.  Hopefully your engine owner used anti-freeze and the block cylinder liners are still thick.  Joe-JDC
I have a 292 i myself picked from a F600 had those crossover manifolds, and forged crank

So, Heo, how did the Packard make it over to your side of the pond? Any background on the ship or past ownership? And when?

Sorry about your sweetie's accident. Mom had a 7" titanium screw put in straight up a badly shattered ankle so I know the deal. Worked great btw and she never had any issue with it for years.

Bob
The car the chassie is from was a limousine. Imported by the Official Packard distributor and sold to either the U.S embassy or the Japanese embassy
some conflicting information there.
 Then the L.K.A.B mining company in Kiruna owned it.
 Then the smuggler king of Tornionvalley owned it, in 1940 he had some work done to the engine and on the way home from the repair shop it threw a rod.
 Car was left behind the barn and later the axles was used for some horse wagon.
 Dad saw it first time in the late 50s when he was up there with a timber truck.
 In the late 60s dad was building the new road up the valley and bought it of the kings son....I guess thats the smuggler prince ;D.
 He visited us a few months before dad died and saw it rebuilt
My whole youth we traveled scandinavia looking for parts, We found a Roadster rear axle by accident searching for a 33 Ford
and cracking the oilpan on dads Mercedes in middle of nowhere.
 The guy in the first house where there was someone living told us, your lucky you dont have a Packard as i had cause then the pan would be aluminium...
Okay you dont happens to still have the Packard?
No just a horse wagon with a older Packard rear axle....Was a 6th series with the roadster gearing :o alegedly 2 roadsters sold in Sweden
Borrowing a stickwelder of this guys drunk brother was a story by it self but i think i told it here before



Later we found the sorry remnants of a roadster body in Finland that we used for template to build a new body.
 Actualy the only original sheetmetal is the frontfenders, firewall and hood sides.
 The body, rearfenders, hoodtop, splashaprons is made by me , dad made a lot of new parts.
 As the windshield posts that he first made wooden models out of pictures he took at Hersey then cast in bronze
and so on

Nice Packard.
Sorry about the injury to your wife.
The Packard's I owned in the past sit high in the rear even with 60 year old spring's. If you look at picture's from the era most of them are taken from the top down or from the bottom looking up so it is hard to tell how they really sit.
I think when they settle in they will be right but if you don't like the look just remove a leaf or two.
Greg

Thanks Greg

We had a spring factory in Kemi Finland copy the limousine springs, since the chassie had a limousine body.
so i suspect they are a bit to heavy duty but time will tell

     Your Packard looks very similar to the one ('29 640 roadster) at the last MECUM Orlando auction.  I was watching with considerations of being the bidder if it might have gone begging a little, as due to its' condition, but..........  :(

     Scott.

Do you remember the final price?

Heo - Packard looks great!

I'm sorry to hear about your wife's injury.  Ankles are very difficult to heal, so be patient.  Next winter will also be uncomfortable...  If she needs any spare titanium screws, I have some that the hip surgeon gave me after my last procedure!  Actually, I might use those for my next deck framing project...



Best wishes to you guys!

- Bill

thanks Bill

Ouch!! those screws inflikt pain just by looking  at them . She cant have 22 of that size in her leg :o :o
