Consigned both my 1930 Packard 733 Convertible Coupe with rumble seat and 1932 Packard 902 Convertible Coupe with rumble seat. with Significant Cars in Indiana. Anyone interested contact Shawn Miller 317 - 636 9900.

I sold my 1933 Packard Victoria Convertible in Jan. to an Air Line Pilot in Ill. So I will not refit any of the original Packards I own but will build out the last two 1934 fiberglass Packards taken from his molds by Dwight Bond of Second Chances. One is a 34 Convertible Coupe with rumble seat and the other is a 34 Victoria Convertible.

Attached is a work in progress of second of only three 1934 Packard Victoria Convertible's taken from the molds by Second Chances. mine being the third and last. This second one owned by Richard Jack is in upstate N.Y. I just got back from there documenting dimensions and taking many close up photo's for when it comes time for em to start mine. They are far more difficult to build than an original car. It is like building a one off.

Personally, I don't like being blackmailed. If you want to rod them have at it, it's your money.

I never have understood why someone would consign a car with someone else, who is then going to put it on Ebay. If you can take a few pictures and write a good description, then in 20 minutes or less you can post it yourself. I am sure Shawn is a nice guy, but why pay to list it on Ebay and a website when you can do it yourself? And I have to chuckle any time I see "easy restoration" in a listing (as is stated for the 902 on Ebay).

Interesting, also on Ebay, unrestored 840 for $50K reserve not met, needing everything, another, excellent unrestored, $140K buy it now. Any total restoration is a killer these days, just go price the paint sometime, not to mention chrome.

I am not sure what I am looking at. The body, hood, fenders & cowl looks superb. Are these the parts that are FIBERGLASS re-creations? If so, my compliments.

Saw one of these completed replicas at Carlisle maybe 15 years ago. Excellent workmanship for fibreglas. Mix of new and original parts.

The Victoria Convertible pictured in grey primer (April 2009 posting) is Richard Jacks' car, correct? And you apparently have a third one? Excuse me for curiosity, but I do have a completed one - just had it to a show today - and if any detailed photos or comments on the completed car would help with your projects, let me know. I admire Dwight Bond's excellent work at 2nd Chance Classics and would be pleased to make a useful contribution to making the best use of these Victoria bodies.

A few comments on mine: the gas tank bracket on one side was too weak and after perhaps 2000 miles it fatigued and broke off the tank, so that the tank was supported by its inlet hose resting on the leaf spring. Another point: the passenger side front fender had a flat spot in the bottom curve just over the wheel. I was able to fix it so that it looks perfect with very little effort - but before you paint the car you may wish to check if this is a mold problem on every such car or unique to my car. Last point: if you can get an original dashboard and gages setup, it makes the car capable of fooling even the casual inspection by a Packard Club member. My intent is not to "fool" people - but it is definitely more fun to have so many people wonder if it is a replica car or not.

Since I first became aware of this "thread" at AACA I have had the suspension sorted out on my Victoria, and it feels like a new car. Three years ago a Porsche racing shop had aligned the car and it then shimmied, jiggled, and wandered. Two months ago a very good local Cobra and Mustang mechanic took the car and returned it in excellent shape! I think he better understood the Cordoba torsion bar front setup and other issues of this car. When I first heard of your project I was very curious about other kinds of front end suspension, but that need has evaporated.

George. my email address is packardrefitters@windstream.net. Please send me a mail so I have yours and we can discuss our business relative to the Victoria. I think I may have a photo of your car, given to me by Dwight when I was there picking up my bodies and parts. It was outstanding. I believe the body was a cream shade and the fenders were a bit darker. tan interior. cream top. If not, then the three in number has just increased to 4. At any rate, anything you can tell me about your car is appreciated. I am traveling to New York to make patterns of all the top Iron pieces and parts so I can build mine. I will take some added shots of the car you saw posted here and send to you.

If ever you venture Ohio way please stop by. Oh. by the way if ever you have a problem with your cordoba front suspension. the owner of Fat Man fabricators built a front suspension for his 32 buick. also for 4000# + automobiles. That is the front suspensions I use on all my cars. Have photos and can send to you when you email me. You can see same on my website.
