  1. 23" Pasco Wire Wheels

    These are four 23" Pasco wire wheels. One rim is rusted out, however, the four lock rims are there. The other rims are very average. The stud diameter is 6". 66 spoke. These are very rare wheels to find I can send more photos on request, and I accept PayPal. I can organise overseas shipping if you require it. I can take the tyres off, as they are beyond use. If you only want the wheel centres, or lock rims etc, I can arrange something. I am asking $550AUD, depending if you want the whole wheel, wheel centres, lock rims etc.
  2. 1922 Fiat 501 Targa Florio

    Is it possibly a FIAT 502? they are similar to a 501, however a larger version, and a lot rarer.
  3. Roamer?

    I'm not exactly sure, but I think it's a Daniels Victoria Coupe. However, I think it's been slightly customised; the headlamps particularly, side windows in the top.There are some things that don't fit, like the radiator, but the front mudguards are very distinctive of a Daniels.
  4. Stewert speedometers - what do they fit please?

    No, sorry. I agree with the previous posts, it does appear to a T Model accessory speedo from the 1916-20 era.
  5. 2 more speedometers then thats it!

    The Stewart is a Model 103 and was introduced in 1914, and I think it was offered for one year only.
  6. 1922 Fiat 501 Targa Florio

    This is brilliant news! and vintage FIAT parts are in demand, so you'll have no trouble getting rid of what you don't need.

    A friend and I were discussing this yesterday, he told me it was a total ban of asbestos in an imported car, that means clutch linings, brake linings, gaskets, and I imagine even some of the early copper-asbestos spark plug gaskets. I don't think asbestos has been used in brakes here for at least 15 years, I'm not sure about other countries. This thread may answer some of your questions: And a recent news article:
  8. Stewert speedometers - what do they fit please?

    Going by the Stewart catalogue, a 131-BG speedo fits a 1923 1924 1925 4-cylinder Durrant, 1924 1925 Flint, 1924 1925 Star (also known as a Rugby in some countries). The one on the right looks like a T model speedo, they should have a date stamp on the face (very faint, you've got to look close). I've got one similar, it's got a 'K' stamp which is 1918, so if it's got that, you'll at least be able to tell what year it is.
  9. Marvel carburetor

    The Orginal Poster bought a universal joint from me a few weeks ago. In fact, looking back over his advert, I may have sent him more parts than he required. I sent him the cast 'U' section, as well as the pressed steel universal joint coupling (133-1). I also sent him 133-2, which he may not have needed.
  10. Car make, year?

    It's a Paige, although I'm not sure what year.
  11. 1922 Fiat 501 Targa Florio

    I am definitely a vintage FIAT enthusiast, particularly the 1910's and 20's cars. The good thing about a 501 is that there a lot of parts about, especially mechanicals. Every swap meet seems to have one of those brass hubcaps, so there must have been a lot come here (Australia) from new. There was also a 501S, which I think came to Australia, and the 501SS which was more of a works machine -I doubt that one made it here. The FIAT club of Victoria has a very active pre-war scene, and their newsletter FIATmonth Magazine has a section devoted to pre-war FIAT's.
  12. Scintilla Lights - Reproduction?

    They don't look reproduction to me, I'd say NOS if anything. I've got a 30's Scintilla catalogue at home, and I'll see if they're listed. Scintilla equipment was factory fitted to a few cars, most notably to some Bugatti and Minerva cars, although I don't know if they used this style of tail lamp.
  13. Rolls Royce Statue forsale

    I've seen a couple of these early Rolls-Royce statues, and they were said to be used in dealership showrooms. The ones I saw were a bit under 2' high on marble bases; one of these went to auction where it sold for about $2000, but this was 15 years ago. I think it would be difficult to fake one and make it look authentic. I can't imagine the seller is only selling a radiator mascot for that amount of money.
  14. Unknown truck

    I think that's a Federal.
  15. Unknown limo

    I've changed my mind, I don't think it's a Packard anymore. The bonnet louvers are wrong and the brake drum is too small.
