As the owner had passed away I met his son and we ended up chatting about what his plans were for the car. He knew we had a 1939 Packard. He told me it was his dream to fully restore his dad's car and bring it back to full form.


I still need to complete the paintwork and upholstery and finish the car completely. But the journey so far has been unbelievably gratifying to warrant a story at this time for your reading pleasure
Deepak,

I just now bumped in to this thread. Just one word - WOW!

Pardon my ignorance - I am sure you must have completed this long ago. Is there a thread somewhere in this forum - dedicated to this?

I really would love to see the end result.

Thanks

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Hi Deepak,

Ignore my earlier post

I was on this thread again and then paid attention to your post # 92. It must have been real hard for you to let go.

Would have loved to see the final result.

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe
