Matthew's trivia quiz was a lot of fun. Maybe we could do that regularly, once a month at least. Meanwhile here is an original 1953 picture, right? Is there anything wrong with this car?

Not sure about the prewar Presidents, I'll say the 352 Packard engine in the 56 Golden Hawks.

Matthew,

I think that some of the '56 Golden Hawks actually had the 374 CID Packard engine.

Evan nailed it. OK, how about a year for a electric fuel pump kit offered ?

Hi, Guido,

The rumor of 1956 Golden Hawks delivered with 374" Packards continues to circulate, but no one to my knowledge has ever substantiated it with factory paperwork.

There were several '56Js raced with the larger engines, and the famous Everett Hatch '56 Clipper ran 374"s, but these were all after-delivery swaps.

thnx, jv.

Probably late '63 for the R3 engine, around the same time they offered the 276 and 288 deg. camshafts. Would be a 156.... part number.

I used to own a Packard Hawk & at that time I also had a letter from the factory dealing with fuel starvation problems under heavy accaleration sent to dealers. The factories answer was use a electric fuel pump that was available by special order;so I would say 1958

Hey JDP. The 1909-1911 Studebaker-Garfords had a 372.1 C.I. four cylinder that produced 40 Hp.

I remembered pictures of a dual electric fuel pump kit, two Bendix pumps in parallel, from last November. They are at:
http://community.webshots.com/album/505037913BMKxNJ .
Someone has written the part # 1547161, on the box. The pumps are mounted on a steel plate with a ground strap, and rubber insulators. The hose fittings, in and out, look like 5/16". McCulloch supplied pumps like this in the mid '50's. I wondered if it was a genuine Stude kit.

Can we count the 462 CID 1933 Pierce-Arrow V12?
