  • Brake reservoir? I've never seen this

    It's an S-P part, but I've never seen or even heard of one:

    To bad the seller is looking to make so much profit on the shipping [}]

        This is for the 1956 Packard.

          I've never seen one either, but seen pics before - this may be the real deal. This is not the same as the reservoir used on later disc brake Hawks although it performs the same function.

            The box looks '56 to '62, maybe earlier...? Did that logo come out immeadiately after the Packard "help"? I am not near my parts book this week, but I tried to blow up the instructions and couldn't read a thing due to the poor quality of the picture. I've seen those, there was one or two last summer in that stash at my friend's farm. 2R5, when I ask eBay sellers about shipping price now they blame it on eBay's new rules. Most are asking buyers to not pay for it right away and ask for an actual shipping price when it's won. Some let it go, because they always seem higher.
            Edit: I see Bob Langer found it already. Good job.[^] Were they for any Studebaker cars?

              I am about 75 miles from here...Paul Johnson (53k I think) is 50...If I was going that way for something I would pick it up..Maybe Paul gets down that way or knows an SDCer there and they could send it for cost. You can buy 40 acres and a mule for 25 bucks in Star Tannery...

                I think it, or a similar unit was offered on at least the 47-52 Studebaker's, Bondo knows.

                  You're right on my distance (I'd never even heard of Star Tannery). I looked in a couple old price books (too cold to look until I found the first and last listings). It wasn't listed in '68, but in a '55 list it was shown at retail $6.95, dealer net $4.49). It didn't show an application though.

                    My 57 President Classic which is a three owner car had the resevoir in it. Looks like a Skippy Peanut Butter jar. The pictures posted are correct. I acquired a new one when I restored the car and replaced the original. Since then I have seen one other and have another original box. The dealer that installed it was in central MN.

                        It is a Studebaker option, was offered in 1956.

                        When I installed the Turner disc brakes I used a Mitsubishi 1995 Eclipse MC. I mounted the reservoir on the battery hold down tray. When I sent Frank Ambrogio some photos of my installation he sent me one of those stickers to use on my car.
