I am in need of a new, rebuilt, or good used torque converter for my 1957 Packard with Flight-O-Matic Should be same converter used in Golden Hawks.
Studebaker-Packard part number is 1547075 which may have been superceded to 1549039.
Thank you
Bill

Seems like I saw a NOS converter for sale somewhere in the last few days, but now I can't find it. :(

Hi Paul, I couldn’t find the ad on the swap page. Do you have the contact infirmation?

I looked all over, and could not find where I saw that. Don't think I was imagining it..........hope I wasn't imagining things.

I bought the one on the swap page. Stephen Allen had NOS one in stock a few months ago.

This is a great sign Bill, you must be getting closer to getting the wagon on the road!

Thanks Chip! You have always been an inspiration on this journey.
Yes, I had her running and stopping but the gods were against me as reverse decided to be neutral. Upon examination of the internals and upon advice received here, I removed the transmission and sent it off to the rebuilders. I received a call today that transmission is done and I also received a call from John Erb. The supercharger is also done and on the way! Like the old New England saying...”a red letter day” Now all I need to find is that dang torque converter!

Have you tried Tom Karkiewicz in South Bend? I am getting a converter for my 62 GT from him in the spring. Offers a one year warranty. His ph# is (574) 287 5834
