How often should front wheel bearings be packed and rear bearings be replaced. These cars maybe only get driven 2 - 3 K miles a year; and sit 3 to 5 months.
IIRC I used to pack front wheels appx 10 to 12 K miles but that was back in the 70's when the cars were daily drivers.

Ford in their '67 Maintenance and Lube manual recommended repack at 24 months or 24k miles whichever occured first. Rear wheel bearings need not be replaced until they start to growl at you.

I use Valvoline moly grease and annually I do a visual check (on the brake system) befor hitting the street and repack the bearings every 10k.
