    Identification of old auto needed please

    Thanks all. Did not look like the 6 point star Dodge radiator badge to me. Running with intel as provided. Moochis Grotzius.
  2. Here is a sporty 2 seater with top down. Can almost see the radiator badge. Anyone know make and year approx.?.... thanks in advance for any skinny.
  3. This item has been recently identified as a Cadillac 1915 - 1916 but without guarantee. Study images and my description and decide if you might want to inquire further as it is for sale. Cast iron end fixture has impressed letters '273' and maybe a '6' after that in an oval?. It also has an impressed '8 R'. Mount holes are 1/4 inch d and about 2 1/8 inch apart center to center. At the other end is a steel machined fixture that is about 5/8 inch OD and 5/16 inch ID. The inner cable is easily removed and replaced. That inner cable has to end fixtures as well and one marked 'TRANS'. Overall the part is 55 1/2 inches long weighing about 2 lbs 2 ozs. Overall sound with a strong and a good quality look and feel. Excellent strong flex to shroud and to interior cable. Excellent alignment except for the slightest variation in sweeping lines - right near connection to heavy end.

    Antique speedometer cable ID needed

    Have heard from a speedometer expert that the cable might be for a 1915-16 Cadillac but without guarantee. Am going to promote in a sale - unless it gets shot down. Then further investigation finds that Cadillac might have offered a right hand or left hand drive. Thanks again to all who took a moment to have a look-see here.

    Antique speedometer cable ID needed

    This item appears to be an automotive speedometer cable from the early days. Cast iron end fixture has impressed letters '273' and maybe a '6' after that in an oval? It also has an impressed '8 R.' Mount holes are 1/4 inch diameter and about 2-1/8 inch apart center to center. At the other end is a steel machined fixture that is about 5/8 inch OD and 5/16 inch ID. The inner cable is easily removed and replaced. That inner cable has two end fixtures as well and one marked 'TRANS.' Overall the part is 55-1/2 inches long, weighing about 2 lbs 2 ozs. Keeping in mind that this might not be an automotive speedometer cable, or a motorcycle speedo cable... Can anyone ID this? Looking to sell, of course. Thanks in advance for any skinny provided.

    Chevrolet dealer hand-out key ring tube

    Excellent. I could not find another - anywhere. Gonna run with the 'registration, money and toothpick' holder. Kudos to John (keiser31) for early strike.

    Chevrolet dealer hand-out key ring tube

    Good intel - thanks.

    Chevrolet dealer hand-out key ring tube

    No, it is a fully open hollow tube. Lotsa good guesses so far. I did think that a filterless Lucky or Camel would fit in there just right. But afterward thought that maybe something like fuses might go in there. Did fuses blow a lot in the old days? Dealership started in 1926 and was still in business 1952.
  9. Any idea what this little tube was used for? Would assume it was a promotional hand-out. It has advertisement for a Chevy dealer and a hole for key ring I guess. End cap fits tight. About 7/16 inch diameter x 3 inches long. Thanks in advance.

    Identification of brass era auto

    Can anyone guess what automobile make this is? thanks in advance
  11. What year(s) is a PLYMOUTH P11 Fordor? On document pictured the auto of sale is noted as a 'Ply P11 Fordor'. Can this be the 1941? No year is shown other than year of sale as 1950 and year of form 1940. thanks in advance. ..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Funny that header suggests 'lifetime of performance' but agreement terms at bottom pretty much state that 'As is' and no 'free' repairs or adjustments will be made after delivery'.

    Berg emergency pull-push knob... charge?

    Thanks alot...much appreciated. I asked the nice ol' guy who owned them and he had a somewhat severe case of amnesia.
  14. Here is another knob I found and would ask if anyone can give a clue as to what the heck it might be for. Non-ferrous metal at about 2 1/4 inch diameter. Thanks in advance for any intel.
  15. Can anyone say what this might be for... truck, auto or whatnot? It is about 2 inch diameter - lightweight non-ferrous metal. Found in a box of truck parts in garage sale. Thanks in advance for any skinny on this.
