Default 1942 Henney-Packard Funeral Coach / Hearse

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Packard-Henn...m=232007583657[/B]

Now, this Coach has potential ! Tough to find these old-timers with the more desirable Automatic Trannie. Almost have to get into the 50's cars to find them. Salvage Title ? Battery Box Rust, Friendly Mice. Can you picture this DONE?

Battery Box Rust, Friendly Mice. Actually that rust is in the sidemount(s) so, it makes you wonder if the frame is sound. Maybe that's why the 'salvage' title? Looks like it may e a broker. Does a member own this great,old coach?

It is a manual transmission according to the listing. The tip off is the clutch pedal.

To me this is a coach with terrific potential. When one thinks of the ambulances discussed here that "could be done", no comparison. Hopefully a member can find it a home.
Would be nice to know its history.

You certainly don't see many of these - or, for that matter, any 1942 models. Especially in this shape. This is a 4290 Series Henney-Packard based on a Packard Eight (One-Twenty) Series 2001-A commercial chassis. It is a Model 4299 - end-loading landaulet - and sold for $2,700 when new. In this war-shortened year, Henney built 804 coaches on the One-Twenty commercial chassis and another 50 on the top-of-the-line Super Eight-based 2003-A commercial chassis. Rare is the best word to adequately describe this vehicle.

RARE, COMPLETE and within reach of a DECENT RESTORATION !!!
and can be had for 5.00 more than that '59 rust bucket that sold this week for 29,995.00 !!!

Now where are the smart ones with some extra cash ?

RUST!! Actually what listed is common in the era. Battery box = overcharge battery boils over acid leaks on box ROT! Side mount bottoms = leaves and dirt collects under tire holds rain and wash water never dries out spares never pulled and cleaned out equals ROT! Would doubt any frame rot as issues above were common in these cars day.
