    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?
  3. 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!

    f/s Model A airplane engine

    More than just cut in half, every part of the water jacket was removed and what looks like copper fins were made and screwed to the cylinder walls. Am impressive amount of work done there!

    ford t windows?

    No Model T had safety glass, that was an improvement made in 1928 on the As

    Help identify Ford part

    Yes, it’s a speaker, and most of the radio, too. It was controlled by a cable dial face located on the dashboard and was an option in the mid-1930s. I am thinking '34-36 but someone else will know for sure.

    1929 Pontiac 6-29 Two-Door Sedan

    I fully agree, but also note that the prices are getting more reasonable as well as the quality and quantity of available cars!

    ford t windows?

    Ditto, I gave all 9 pieces from my 26 Model T Fordor away to be used as patterns only, it was either that or pay for dumping them. Absolutely unsafe to re-use if they are plate glass!

    f/s Model A airplane engine

    Owls Head Transportation Museum is working on a Pietenpol which I have looked at several times while volunteering there, it’s what makes me think it’s a T engine and not an A. I’m sure the finned Head was made to convert it to air cooled and is the most interesting part of the engine.

    f/s Model A airplane engine

    I actually think it started out as a Model T engine, the oil filler tube is bolted on where an A had a filling tube hole cast into the block

    1920-30s Nash Eemblem... radiator grill shell or ???

    I will go on a limb here, but it looks like a broken then filed down watch fob. Your first picture has a little irregularly above the eagles wings that would have been where the loop for a strap might have been.

    What Components Were Used In This Toy Speedster?

    The only part I would speculate on is that the steering wheel looks like an earlier Model T Ford flipped up-side-down. I would also think that the wheels are from a bicycle, they look bigger than baby carriage wheels.

    Cadillac Emblem

    It was mounted on a headlamp rim, I think around 28-29 but someone should be able to give you the exact years.

    1920s horn button & lever

    28-9 Model A Ford, missing the tube that ran down to the switch at the gearbox

    Odd tool

    Some parts from a transmission jack is what comes to mind for me... KM was mostly GM, as noted above. I think KRW is the early Ford tool company Auburnseeker was trying to think of.

    What is it. Non Auto

    How about an awning crank of some sort?

    Auction on Craigslist for old cars.

    If I had the money to make a fair offer on that 29 I would in a heartbeat, I love original cars and that one is beyond beautiful...

    1918 Kissel Roadster / Hardtop

    A challenging restoration, but that is a great looking and unique car to save! I am truly looking forward to reading about its resurrection. Thank you for sharing that with us!

    Dodge Brothers business coupe ID tag

    Purely speculation, but is it possible that whoever made the wood for the body tagged it to keep it separated from regular coupe wood? It may explain why it’s not a commonly known tag.

    Any one looking for deal on a car..

    I think you will find it’s an on site auction and you cannot bid until the lot comes up on the block on the day of the sale...

    Indian Sidecar is this Expensive ? ?

    Compare it to an original Mullins Trailer or a 20’s camper trailer and that is a very good price IMHO

    Indian Sidecar is this Expensive ? ?

    That is especially true for INDIAN and HARLEY items where I think the collectors are the most passionate about their rides.

    What do I have?

    They also could have been winter tire saver stands and from a set of four – those always look a bit taller than a service jack to me.
  24. Mark Wetherbee

    SCORE!!! I will take two!

    You can flag it as a scammer before someone gets bit...
