  3. There you have it. It looked like a Ford factory express body.
  4. NICE WORK GARY.
  5. I carry a fold up chair in the trunk and a spare tire. We drive the car two or thee times a week and have fixed every little thing I could possibly find to fiddle with. The good thing about regularly driving it is you know instantly if anything changes.
  6. I just must repeat myself... At least I think that I have said it once already. But I admire your enthusiasm, your passion and your spirit with your B-58's. You are a great motivation for me! And I love the feeling to cruise around during late night with all the streetlights shining from the top of the hood. Keep up!

  10. It is true, the Knight design does not lend itself to high speeds. The weight and friction of the sleeves sees to that. So they tuned them accordingly. The Voisin was an exception. They developed very thin, light sleeves and altered the porting. The result was an engine that would rev like a poppet valve engine but had very little low speed torque. The Voisin cultivated a performance reputation so perhaps that did not matter to their clientele.
  11. THANK YOU for all the info guys. Tom T.

  13. Sorry if I did not remark his health problem: he wrote too much to my taste and I skiped the notifications. I'm wishing him a prompt recovery.

  16. http://theoldmotor.com/?p=122549 Have a read through this. A number of the cars which go on this rally use external brakes and have no issues. I've used our '29 Plymouth for the last few years (I was the 17 year old son) and can safely say that internal brakes fill up with water and are just useless for the first stop or two. This was painfully apparent this year when I entered a one lane bridge at 50mph because of wet brakes and lack of speed retardation down a steep hill. As a side note '29 Desoto internal brakes will fit on the '25 Chrysler front axle. Use this info as you wish.
  17. There was a Falcon Knight sedan many years ago that ended up being owned at various times by a few friends of mine. I have long since lost track of it. I rode in it several times, and followed it on tours often. I never thought it smoked much. I never heard the reason why (not to scare you away!), but something inside the motor broke. The friend that owned it at that time tore it apart, found a donor engine for the parts he had to replace, and did the overhaul himself, being careful to not overly clean many pieces. He drove the car a lot for a few years after. He also said, that although different than what he was used to, it wasn't that difficult to work on. A few years later, he wound up helping another friend (who's father had previously owned the Falcon Knight) rebuild a Stearns Knight engine. The Stearns Knight had a very nice looking cosmetic restoration and was beautifully detailed, but turned out to have serious engine problems, burned out a couple connecting rods. Again, not wanting to scare anybody away from these cars! The engine had not been properly maintained, and gunk in the motor plugged the oil passageways, requiring .a major tear-down. The two of them got in, and cleaned and overhauled that Stearns motor. It ran great as long as I know thereafter. My main point of all this, is that the Knight engines CAN be rebuilt by a good mechanic familiar with antique engines. They do have some peculiarities. But once aware of them, not so bad. One other thing about SOME Knight cars. Some Stearns, and a few other marque models, catered to an elite clientele. They wanted elegance (hence quiet), mostly used in town, and did not care much about speed. That Stearns was one of the most beautiful and elegant antique automobile sedans I have ever seen. However, it was slow. The rear end gearing was so low, that the fastest that car could go was about 35 mph. The owner decided to not try to modify the car for higher gearing, sold the Stearns and bought a P1 Rolls Royce soon thereafter. If you want to tour the car extensively? You may want to see if you can easily count the gear ratio. 5 1/2 to 1 isn't very fast. While the engines are strong and fairly reliable, they are not high rpm capable. Better gear ratios seem to make good tour cars. I have followed several on tours at various times. A little smoke? Yeah. But most were not bad to follow, even when driving an open car. I would love to have a Knight engine car. But that is another of my many wants I will probably never achieve. Good luck!
  18. Owner put us to reassamble parts, that come like that So, we need an idea about how come the floor. To fix that parts.
  19. Hi and thanks for your reply. However, with the front missing I shall have to look further! One thing though; are the external labels and tags intact? Best regards, Ole
  20. The brownish console is kinda correct. My 64 had saddle interior, and the console is a medium gold-brown. Really like the green, great looking car.
  21. blandoll@hotmail.com quoted me $225.00 for my Pontiac.
  22. #Carshow 20th Flanders Mustang Event Kluisbergen Belgium, 25 june By : Capri Power http://capripowermeetingpics.weebly.com/flanders-mustang-event-kluisbergen-25-june.html Greetings from Belgium
  23. I think my 37 Special is just as nice and mid teens would find it a new home AND you could drive it anywhere it doesn't have to swim. Some dreamers think "old" translates into big bucks.
  24. I have owned this Reatta for 14 years/ it was always repaired by a reputable garage. mechanically I don't know of anything it needs. It has 160k miles and runs great, shifts great, steers and stops great. the body doesn't have rust or dents, but the paint is faded on the hood, top and trunk lid, and the clear coat has whitened. the sides look great! the interior is fair, driver seat is ripped, has a seat cover, passenger seat pretty good. It is red w/ tan interior. I am asking $2,500.00 OBO Please email me at maherconcretecutting.com if you have questions or want pictures. I am in Cincinnati Ohio
  25. Knockout car, it's in my dream color combination too. Diplomat Blue is one of my favorite GM colors. Good luck with the sale.
  26. Tom, Griffin Radiator http://www.griffinrad.com/ will do custom builds with 1 1/2" tubes. I got a quote last year, I think it was $750 or so. I wanted one but couldn't justify the expense, so I went with US Radiator's aluminum model with 1" tubes for considerably less.
  27. Possibly part of the problem here could be due to constant running, 900 miles each way prolonged running on 70 year old windings., heat build up breaking down old insulation, creating a high current short circuit.
