Packard - '42 180

This beautiful 1942 Packard 180 came originally from Ohio and was not sold until sometime in 1943. The engine block was cast on December 8, 1941, just one day after Pearl Harbor.

This car is a limousine and has two jump seats built into the back of the front seat. The 356 cubic inch straight eight has nine main bearings, and drives a 3-speed transmission with overdrive.

Hesco converted the engine to a 12-Volt system, installed A/C and updated the heater for added comfort. We also installed a Petronix electronic distributor kit for added reliability. The alternator and A/C mounting brackets were custom made at Hesco's machine shop. This car is driven to work twice a week and will be driven on weekends to local "cruise nights".
