    1928 Cadillac Fleetwood Town car

    Sorry guys, The car is sold - to a member here on the forum. Perhaps we will get an update from him sometime.

    Lincoln L series question

    That judkins coupe is missing some hard to find parts and its in poor shape. I would not consider that car. Buy the blue 169B in hemmings.

    Lincoln L series question

    i will add that the hemmings car seller claims it is one of 1513 made in 1929 - which incidentally is the exact number of type 169B factory bodies that were made in that year.... where as the willoughby bodied cars were: Type 160 - 155 Type 174 - 228 So, I think we have our answer....

    this is a photo of the willoughby "limousine" from my catalog. I cant figure out what the difference is between the type 174 and 160- both were offered in 1929 and are called willoughby 7 passenger limousine. Either way, they are super rare and I cant imagine that those cars you are considering are willoughby bodied. ill be quiet now.

    this is a well known car - custom built with earlier fenders. It is a type 160 by willoughby :L

    Here is a car i know personally and it is a type 169B factory body. It looks pretty much identical to the two cars posted above. For comparison, this car was for sale and sold for 40K. It had a meticulously rebuilt engine, new paint and all new exterior chrome - it did have a worn original interior. L

    Good point on the radiator cap - i missed that. There are quite a few 1929/30 sedans floating around bur few of them are willoughby bodied cars. Its more likely that these are just lincoln bodied cars such as the 169B or 168A or simliar. I am not good enough to tell them apart by looking at the body photos online. Ask them for the body type numbers from the brass tags under the front seat cushion. Then we can know. L

    i may be crazy, but I think i see the "shawn miller" car in the back ground of the first photo of the "hemmings car"

    also, get the body type numbers off the brass tags under the front drivers seat cushion. L

    Lincoln L series question

    Things i can say about the hemmings car: wrong gas cap, missing one cover for the generator brushes, looks like the wrong drive plates for the water pump shaft, gear shift lever is bent - engine number looks like it has been restamped. Its blurry in the photo, but looks off. If you feel like it, send me the serial number from the firewall tag and the engine number. Things i can say about shawn millers car - In 2008 it was listed with the LOC as belonging to james Day in ohio, I dont have any other history. Horn is wrong, greyhound is missing, not a fan of the mirrors, looks like a tropic aire accessory heater with original switch, missing air filter trim ring, missing battery cable attachment point cover on generator, battery cable routed from the wrong side? (maybe has a cut off installed?), something wrong with vacuum pump- looks like they have an electric in it with some home made blanking plate and plumbing- the correct guts for this are very hard to find so see if they have it. I like both cars, looks like they both need the same sort of stuff. L

    also, all lincolns have a regular closed steering box. 1930 just has a better one - a gemmer as mentioned above - with a better ratio.

    lets hear some more about the cars you are considering. IF you can get their serial numbers, I might be able to tell you more about them. L

    1928 Cadillac Fleetwood Town car

    All, My friend has a 1928 Cadillac town car by fleetwood that he needs to sell. He is 77 and wont ever finish it. The car was made into a tow truck and he has rebuilt the rear half. I think it was a three window but he made it into a two window. He has rebuilt a lasalle previously, so his wood work is not terrible, but I know how hard it is to make cars perfect. IT needs finishing. I belive he made the rear doors. He "rebuilt" the engine - i know it has new bearings at minimum. It has been run. Its largely apart. Has buffalo wire wheels. He has all the parts that are not on it as far as I know - such as fenders, grill, hood runningboards etc. He is asking 15K if anyone is interested in such a car. Thanks, :L
  14. I am searching for a yellow with black letters 1956 British Columbia "CL" or "Carrier License" license plate. It is smaller than regular car plates. Here is an example: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-British-Columbia-CL-License-Plate-1956-K20010-/302607515142?hash=item4674d03e06%3Ag%3AvE8AAOSwFMdaYQku&nma=true&si=g4Uxl1zY8bp9mZBkL1VfTWJ1vkw%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    Late 1920's LINCOLNS

    Dave, do you recall if the body had this moulding feature? This is a characteristic of LOCKE bodied lincolns. This car was for sale in southern california. It was restroed in the 1980s. A possible candidate. L
