1936 Packard
6 Attachment(s)
After a two month wait, finally landed this 36 Packard 120. Body seems pretty rust free, bit of a dip in the roof since it was holding up the shed that it half fit into for unknown years. I have all the front end sheetmetal except the hood :(. It's actually a Canadian built car, don't know how rare or unrare that makes it.
After a bunch of measuring it will have an appointment with the Sawzall.
Plan is to give it a 2 or 3" chop, Shorten the body in the middle and extend the front doors, weld the rears up and make it a 2dr., much like the 34 Caddy. The humpback must go ! Slice it off and make a smaller flat trunk lid. Possibly will do a 2" section slice to bring the body height down, the grille and hood seem to stand too tall in relation to the fenders.
Well, that's the plan anyways... :rolleyes: this is gonna take awhile, hopefully it comes out looking something like the concept pic.

Looks like you are having Caddy withdrawal symptoms.

[P Im ready to watch this one unfold. Should be a treat for us all.

It looks to be in good shape. It certainly needs the zz rodder treatment to be converted from an ugly duckling into a beautiful cruiser.[cl

Really looking forward to this build.
