    ID on a 1914-18 Headlight

    Many years ago I had a 1924 Special Six Studebaker which had very similar if not exact lights, the liberty lens was the factory used lens. Good luck with them.

    Ford Cunningham Limousine 1935

    I would love to own such a unique vehicle, but sadly doubt it would be sold at a price that is within a budget...

    Duesenberg

    Exactly ZERO... cars are one of the categories that do not earn eBay bucks...

    My wife, dogs and I moved in from Sneads Ferry to Winston Salem on Tuesday, then from there to Apex today just to be that much closer to home. We have seen recent video and pictures from inside our community showing little property damage from what we were expecting. A few trees and fences down and what I would call minor flooding in lower areas than our home. We count ourselves lucky to have the means to leave, although we are worried about our home and neighborhood we are safe, possessions can be replaced... If you’re praying, send it to those who were not able to leave either because of financial issues, our Military Servicemen and women (Camp Lejeune is just North of us), the repairmen who are rushing in to help (literally hundreds of bucket trucks waiting near Raleigh) and our First Responders who are doing everything possible to keep others safe.

    What's your most 'unexpected' part find?

    About 35 years ago I had a friend with a 1915 Model T Ford Centerdoor, a very scarce style. It sadly had the gas tank under the rear seat which exacerbated the fuel flow issues that the T was famous for. There was a special intake manifold that Ford made in 1915 which was 2” longer to alleviate any complaints and they were only sent to areas that were very hilly or mountainous, a very RARE (and I don’t use that word lightly) item! I was at a tiny car flea in Connecticut where I found a NOS one for $2.00 - a holy grail for the friend who had the car who was so pleased he traded me two beautiful porcelain signs for it and still gave me the $2.00. I felt very guilty but he never failed to mention how much of a difference it made with his car.

    Is this a real Henry '32 grille shell?

    I am pretty sure that 32 still has a radiator cap which protruded through the top, unless it was welded over I think it is a reproduction
  8. I love the rain slicker! Living along the coast I tend to have favorite mascots for my Model T, I’m the guy who has a different one for each day on a tour, and this Mermaid is one I use frequently. She usually draws some comments and there have been many times I have been tempted to get her a bikini top as a joke... It appears that I am not the first to think of such an idea. Thank you again for your suggestions, I passed the link to this thread along to John and I hope he will chime in at some point.
  9. I will forward this thread to John and see if he can add more pictures. I now live a thousand miles away or I would have been bidding against him... Timing really is everything! Thank you for all your replies.
  10. A good friend of mine bought the 1932 Pierce Arrow coupe from the Owls Head Auction and asked me if I knew anyone who could restore its Radiator Mascot. As you can see, it needs a bow and arrow replacement... Does anyone know a reputable company that does that sort of work? Thank you in advance, Mark

    Anyone Ever Sell a Car to a Buyer in Sweden?

    Sold an A to Switzerland, he wired the money to my account and then arranged for it to be shipped. I don’t think I would do the work of moving it to the port until the cash was in my bank, that way it cannot become a concern at all...

    Need help identifying an antique car

    I’m going to take a shot on the make being a Chalmers-Detroit based on the half of emblem showing. Here’s a link to a great reference: http://www.americanautoemblems.com/search/label/CHALMERS-DETROIT?m=0

    Old mystery brackets – purpose and car?

    I think that you have a pair of lantern brackets missing the springs that held the bottom tank in. Most likely American LaFrance

    Old miniature car identification

    There’s several radiator shells showing up regularly on eBay from one seller. Worth it if you or someone else goes for the car and needs one but shipping is ridiculous... I think they were down south somewhere... Georgia maybe?
  15. I have a set that I made a special bracket and mounted them on top of the spare tire on my Model T, which makes it more visible IMO. I could also move it between my T and the two Model A’s I had. On several occasions I have had a modern car follow me into somewhere and inquire about them. I get around 800 to 1000 miles from a set of batteries. I love them!
