    Weidely Motors Company Number Plate

    I'm pretty sure this is the engine plate off a W model Cletrac. Going by this factory serial number listing, they made 22,122 Weidley engined Cletracs. There are still a lot of them around and they aren't that rare, however, they are a very nice crawler and I would like to own one, one day. The engine number 51589 falls perfectly within the Weidley-Cletrac engine number listing.

    Weidely Motors Company Number Plate

    The H and W model Cletracs were the models that used them. My book says they used them from 1917-32, although I thought Cletrac made their own engines from some point in the early 20's - I could be wrong. There were still thousands of Cletracs built by the early 20's. This forum link references the MW Weidley being used in a W model Cletrac: https://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=129254

    The early Cletrac crawlers used a Weidley engine as well, and I think that's what this plate is from.

    Need ID on this streamlined late '30s roadster

    It's a Pininfarina Alfa Romeo 6C 2300; not sure what year. It's got those distinctive Pininfarina wheel covers, and headlamps moulded into the body. That's one I'd definitely like to own.

    1900s Sightseeing Bus

    I'm pretty sure this is a General Vehicle (GV), and It's an electric vehicle. I can't find the reference photo I found once, but I'll keep looking.

    Hupmobile maybe?

    I agree, it's an RCH.

    Help identify this axle/wheel please

    Carl, thank you for the kind words. The only reason I knew was that I found a couple of rolling chassis once and didn't know what they were, so I had to find out. I haven't seen many 1920's A-S's in Australia, only a couple that I can think of, although undoubtdly there will be others.

    old mechanical exhibition in France

    A bit more info; there was an article in The Automobile magazine many years ago about these. They mentioned the car owned by the Royal famliy, and how they had it since the 20's, but was later rebodied as a Daimler. Here's a video. https://www.facebook.com/chasingpedalcars1/videos/this-1920s-citroen-c4-electric-car-was-given-to-the-queen-and-princess-margaret/1234450676570558/

    It's a Citroen, and I'm sure it's an electric car. The British royal family had one, and I think they've still got it. I have a feeling that they may have been built by Citroen? I don't know much more, sorry. This isn't the Royal car.

    Another brass car from the HAMB

    I'm very sorry to waste your precious time mate. That was the best photo I could find of a Reading Model 40 for comparison. I also didn't say it validated the subject car.

    Another brass car from the HAMB

    This is out of a 1911journal, of the 1912 model. They were a 4 cylinder and used full-elliptic springs all around.
