  • And another 56J, plus a parts car

    Not mine, found it through Craig's list. Thought it might interest someone. Both a 3 spd OD and an automatic here in the parts car.

    This ad is very interesting. It does looks like a professional job on the stick O/D conversion really was done. The O/D relay, Kickdown switch, and wiring looks to all be where it should be.....Still, a lot of time and $$$$$ will have to be expended on this Golden Hawk to make it right.

      The seller knows how to sell a Stude to a Stude person. "Just show me the rust!"

      That pair would be a great starting point for a performance-built '56J. I've got all the parts mythical "Jet Streak Kit" - 2x4bbls, Isky cam, lifters, springs, adjustable pushrods, dual point distributor, plus a 374" engine - sitting on the shelf. Problem is, that's #4 in the queue.

        From what looks like original paint (jambs etc.) clues....I'm guessing this Hawk may be another Glenbrook/Seaside Green model. Although in some of the interior shots the darker color looks to be blue.

          Whoa big feller!!!!!!....Before any of those performance parts go on, I believe it would be a good idea to get the machine work done to the block and rear main bearing cap to adapt a dependable Oldsmobile oil pump to that big Packard 374 V8. After all, ANY performance engine demands reliable oil pressure!

            No machine work necessary. Since I've been selling the bolt-on kit and Oldsmobile pumps for many years now, those, in standard and high volume, are always on the shelf.

              Well that's a bit of good news for Packard V8 owners.....I understood that when the Olds oil pump idea first came out as a resolution for the weak oil pumps found in the '55-'56 Packard V8 engines, machine work was required on the engine block and the rear main bearing cap to get the Olds pump to fit. You say that now it's a bolt on?

                Jeepers, SN60! Certainly by now you know that JV always does things right?

                  Using the Oldsmobile oil pump requires a CNC machined adapter and driveshaft. Someone, somewhere may have machined the Packard V8 rear main cap at a 5* angle, but I don't know him or of him.
