That looks great in there ZZ. I'd have a hard time leaving it for a few months now though. I can't believe the progress you've made on it.

Back from Arizona now, not much happening on the Gasser except the coil overs finally showed up, STILL waiting on the M&H Cheater slicks from Coker, on order since Sept 2021
Also brought home some parts, a steer clear drop unit for the steering 'cause I know the BB Chevy head is going to be right in front of where the column comes thru the firewall. Oh, and a forged, balanced 496 stroker kit for the rat motor, saved big time on import fees and shipping by bringing it home myself
Going to deliver the other coupe in a couple weeks, then I can bring home the body for this one and make sparks without worrying about hurting the pretty one....

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Finally got the body home - 9 hrs of driving plus loading it all, left at 4AM, got home at 6PM - too pooped to unload today, I'll do it tomorrow and get some better pics. He gave a literal pile of parts, 3 doors, 6 fenders, 3 grille shells - one complete - and a whole whack of other parts. Also gave me a couple sedan trunk lids that I may be able to piece together to make the missing coupe lid. Now I just need to find a place to stash it all

It's kind of a unique situation, I've been watching this body mouldering in various barns and sheds since I was a teenager in the 70's - jeez, is it that long?? The guy was my first and only boss for 20 years and is the source of my Packard affliction. He's getting on in years (not the only one) and is vacating his property and needs to reduce his collection of stuff for a manageable retirement sized pile.... We've always connected on our car crazyness, and he feels that I'm worthy of all this Packard stuff, realizing we all have only so much time to get things done and you can't take it with you. He also has an insane collection of IHC Scouts and parts that I may have to draw on for a future build of the 4x4 variety or maybe a low down 2wd cruiser.... hmmmm

Got it all unloaded and compressed it all into my little trailer for now, no room in the shop 'till the other coupe leaves in a couple weeks. Couple of neat old heaters and a pair of 40 Packard tail lights with the cool accessory lights on top, the 40 fenders are junk tho...
