    4cyl Silver Dome head Merchant Express?

    This part is from my father’s estate and I’m not sure what it is. I can’t offer more information than what’s on the listing.
  3. Where can I find a speedometer cable for a 1929 Nash Advanced Six Coupe? Did Nash use speedometer cables from another make? Anyone know of something that is a compatible replacement?
  4. Here is the oil pressure regulator from my 1930 Hupmobile H motor. The smaller spring seems to be far too stiff and is consequently allowing the oil pressure to rise too high.Where can I order a replacement spring? Does someone supply a variety so we can find the spring with the right tension?Is there anything else you know of that might affect a regulator like this? The larger spring? The slide mechanism?

    Doc Knoch's Land Speed Hupmobile Needs Headlights

    When I say Woodlites I mean this style of light. Is there more than one kind of Woodlite?
  6. I'm finishing the restoration of a land speed race car that was run at Bonneville several times in the 1930s. It was owned by Dr. Norbert "Doc" Knoch, a physician from Colorado, who happened to be on hand in 1937 when Ab Jenkins needed shrapnel from a tire blowout pulled from his arm. The doctor's Hupp was also one of the first landspeed projects of Bill Kenz, who would go on to run the Ford racing team and set several records of his own at Bonneville with his partner Roy Leslie. I posted a complete history of the Bonneville Hupp, including links to dozens of photos and scans of original documents that accompany the car, at the H.A.M.B. in March which you should check out if you're interested in salt flats history. The car is also featured on the White Glove Collection website including new photos of the car with the upholstery freshly done. This restoration project was started by my father, Rick Blomquist, who passed away in July of this year. I want to make sure I finish the project with the best result possible and I hope folks on the forum can offer me a bit of advice. My main concern right now is with headlights. The car never ran with headlights at Bonneville, but we know that Doc Knoch drove the car to Bonneville from his home in Denver, so he presumably had headlights on the car during those long drives. What headlights would you suggest I mount on the car? In the photo above you can see the chrome brackets mounted to the bumper that at one time were holding Trippe lights, so you can see where we plan to mount headlights. I'm considering Woodlite headlights, as they would be accurate to the period and match the sleek body styling of the car, especially the "salt scoops" behind the front wheels. However, I'm open to other suggestions. Thank you in advance for your input on this incredible project. Cross-Posted from the Jalopy Journal.

    How to Sell A Huge Shop of Classic Car Parts

    I've posted over 100 new items to https://whiteglovecollection.com/ under the "Lights & Parts" page. Please check these out. Also, you can view my dad's obituary here: http://lacrossetribune.com/lifestyles/announcements/obituaries/richard-allen-blomquist/article_a8fdde6a-7fde-5a76-8451-0c907117736e.html I wrote it. I think dad would have liked how I portrayed his full-throttle approach to life.
  8. My dad, Rick Blomquist, bought this 1932 Studebaker St. Regis on eBay 11 days before he died. I have no means to pick up this car and complete the transaction and the seller will not refund me even a portion of the purchase price. Is anyone in Michigan interested in this car as a project? Our loss will be your gain. I just want to avoid picking it up and I would like to recoup some of the money my dad spent on this. See the original eBay listing here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1932-Studebaker-St-Regis-/332301687527

    1929 Nash Advanced Six Model 460 Coupe $39,900

    Thank you, I hope the AACA members can help me find a buyer for this car. It's a very fun car to drive, especially during a parade with a couple of kids in the rumble seat!

    1932 Studebaker Commander St. Regis Sedan $59,900

    Yes, you're right, only five are known to exist. Given the quality of my dad's work, I believe this is one of the finest of those few examples. We lost dad on Saturday, but I'm glad we still have his work to admire. While I have to sell these cars, I'm creating a catalog of the hundreds of classics he's owned and restored over the years and turning it into a book. A short version will serve as an intro to our book about the restoration of the Bonneville Hupmobile we have for sale.
  11. The Nash 460 Coupe was part of Nash's “Advanced Six” line. Prior to 1930, Nash did not produce the larger, 8-cylinder “Advanced 8” line, so this 460 Coupe was among the top-of-the-line, "big" models from this iconic American car manufacturer. The 460 Coupe was equipped with a 278 cubic inch 6-cylinder engine with 7 main bearings and twin ignition.

  12. This rare Graham limousine has been very well preserved. According to the paperwork we have with the car, the car was restored at around 70,000 miles and the odometer currently reads 75,254.

    What year is this tail light?

    I have this Packard tail light listed for sale as fitting 1929, 1930, 1931, and 1932, but another eBay user said this was incorrect. Does this only fit a 1931 or 1932? Can anyone provide photos, almanac notes, or original sales material that would provide definitive proof? https://whiteglovecollection.com/product/packard-tail-light-1929-1930-1930/
