    Need Hupmobile 20 Manual and any literature

    Thank you Layden, email is on its way. Wonder if anyone put 30x3 1/2 Buffalo wires on a Model 20 Hup? Bob
  2. Years ago on a local FARTS Tour a fellow showed up from Ohio with an enclosed trailer with a Rolls Royce logo on the side. He got out of his truck and said he finally bought a good Brass Car. I asked him what year the Model T was, he said 1909. Funny thing was it was one I'd worked on at one time and it had lived 20 minutes down the road, now it was 16+ hours away. Bob

    Question to ask when buying old cars?!

    A $500.00 car saves you a monthly car payment and should scrap for $250.00 + in 12 months, good math IMO. Bob

    You haven't told us if this going to be a daily driver or weekend hobby vehicle. For $500.00 just insure it register it and add oil & gas, when it dies scrap it and buy another $500. Wonder, I did that with a Chrysler Le Barron. It was a sister car to the one in Planes Trains and Automobiles without the wood trim. lots of life in $500. Wonders. Bob

    Something to think about Auburnseeker

    That odd staggered door gap should help ID the Coupe body. Bob

    Google Irwindale Night of Destruction, there is a home for these vehicles, boats too. Bob
  7. Is there some website safety reason, cheap or too expensive to provide reason for not being able to click on a photo that is already posted here and add it to a reply? Kind of makes sense on all the other websites when you add a reply after 6-10 replies. Bob
  8. Great line up, wonder what that 1912 Model T has going for it to keep up with the Big Brass? Bob

    All of the above advice is good, can it be bought for $500.00 or less and give you a year of trouble free driving? If not pass and look for something better. Could someone tell us that it is, I'm not into late model stuff. Bob

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ That is one nice looking Coupe! Do you think that white one above it has had the body lengthened between the back window and rumble seat? Maroon Coupe gets extra points for the blackwalls. Bob

    The great Duesenberg restored Jim Hoe once bought a Model J sedan and asked to borrow an ax from the former owner after paying him. Chopped the body off and drove the chassis home and built an SCCA race car out of it. Someone will run the numbers and let us know if it is a prize winning dual cowl touring now. Bob

    If it was worth "restoring" it would have been years ago, Does it make all the others worth $100.00 more? I don't think so. Bob

    What does this frame go to? Model T?

    Photos of it before you folded over the body parts would have been more helpful. Bob 😁

    Are these both Ford “Model T”s?

    Thanks for the back up Wayne, nice to have a fellow Brass Car Guy here is a sea of post 1970's vehicles. Bob

    July 1914 is the earliest accessory self starter ad for a Ford that I've found. Bob
