    Buick? photo on ebay

    I realise no that the headlight buckets are the wrong shape for 1928 Buick. The Packard photo you supplied has the wrong length rear side windows - I think it is the longer wheelbase 633. Having a look at some photos I see now that the mystery car is a 1929 Packard 626 - the slightly shorter model. I can't find a photo of a sedan on wires. Most are on discs.

    Wiiiide side car

    Not so much as what is it as a why? I guess the extra width brought the wheels out to match the standard car ruts?

    Buick? photo on ebay The seller captioned it 1925. I think the car is a 1928 Buick Master 7 passenger - maybe? Photo date looks like WW2 era - or later. Is that something circa 1949 in the background?

    Need help to ID these Cars!

    Not a '29. It is either 1930 or 1931. Hard to tell from this distance.

    1929 erskine igniter gear

    1927 was the first year for Erskine. The engine is a Continental 8F so maybe there was some other usage of the engine?

    Auburn hubcap - any idea what year?

    By coincidence there is an 8-88 coming up for auction here in NZ tomorrow, Saturday

    What year is this Chandler?

    Photo taken in Cranmer Square, Christchurch, New Zealand. Certainly before 1925 - we can tell that by the licence plate - but maybe earlier.

    rear diff ratio's in 1931

    I do know there were two different ratios for the late GE; 4.66 and 4.3. I have one of each. We fitted the 4.3 to the car but it is quite worn unfortunately - maybe one day it will get new gears. For 1931 The Standard catalog only lists one ratio for each series. It is possible there were more, as in some makes the roadster had a different ratio to the sedan.

    Another brass car from the HAMB

    Looks like we will just have to keep rolling this one up to the top until we sort it. Those full elliptic front springs have to be a clue. Unfortunately there were many limited production cars in that era - some even one-offs.

    More re Millers tow trucks. Here is the wire wheeled one taken in 1929 being driven by George Sherwin, great uncle of Paul Greer who supplied the photos.. It is a Cadillac Type 51.
