  1. I am looking for a light switch for a 1927 Stearns-Knight Model F-6-85. It was also used in some Willys-Knight cars in 1927 and 1928. This switch attaches to the steering column on a stalk on the right side below the steering wheel. I need the whole thing stalk and all. Thank you. Steve

    How to Remove Paint Spilled onto Car

    Thank you for all of the suggestions. The car is a 1970 Jeep Commando that has been in storage for several years. There is no insurance (nick8086) since it has been sitting for so long. A family member just bought it. They are out of town for several weeks. When they get back we will try out the suggestions to see if any of them work. I will post the results. Thanks again and if there are other ideas, please post them. Steve
  3. Does anyone have a surefire method of removing house paint that was spilled onto a car that might leave the original paint intact?

    Can you identify this @1928 Stutz

    This Stutz belonged to Jean Gorjat of Harrisburg PA before he passed away. I don't know where it is now.

    1927 Stutz AA Victoria "Doctor's Coupe" Found

    This car was used in several movies in the 1970's. It is in "Day of the Locusts" with Karen Black and In can be seen parked on the street in the last scenes of "China Town" where it is sort of a bluish color. I have been watching this car for more than 40 years. When I inquired about it either it wasn't for sale or they wanted way too much for it. Steve

    This is a photo of my 1927 Model F 4 passenger coupe on the day it arrived at my shop. It came from Illinois although it seems to have spent a lot of time in Boyertown PA before going to Illinois.

    Stutz research

    Ron, Thank you for the photo. I am wondering if there is a clearer photo in existence somewhere. It's hard to really tell much about the paint from this one. Steve

    Stutz research

    About 7 years ago I posted the following: Stutz promoted a new type of finish called Robbin-Chrome at the 1925 New York and Chicago auto shows. Two of the five Stutzes displayed, a phaeton and a sedan (1925 Series 695 Sportbrohm), were finished in the novel Robbins-sourced treatment. The Jan 8th and 23rd, 1925 issues of Motor Age described the Robbin-Chrome as "unusual and distinctive in that a mottled design of no uniform pattern was created on a smooth dark undercoat. An exceptionally high luster obtained with a special varnish gave the bodies a polished marble appearance." Has anyone ever seen this paint? Is there a decent picture of it anywhere? Since you are researching Robbins, if you run across any information about this paint, please let me know as I have been unable to find out anything about it. Thank you. Steve
