packard, real IRON

Those old cars were heavy, after you are done you might want to change front and rears springs or rates to get stance and ride quality. Back in the day I used a packard overdrive Transmission. in the third roadster I built. all my buddies were breaking the Ford flathead transmissions behind their Caddy, olds or chrysler powered rods. A buddy told me to Find a packard, strong , and heavy, has a synchro on first gear, .. That roadster is still in a corner of the shop , mabe one of my grandkids will do a resto on it.
