    What is this cast aluminum deep sump oil pan from?

    I cheated and looked up the p/n (11601029131) on Google - it fits a '72-75 Mercedes 450 SL.

    what frame and what year is this

    1921-1925. The last two years had a wider rear crossmember.
  4. Hello This pile of stuff has been set out for the scrap collectors about 30 miles from where I'm at. Is there anything worth saving here? I see an early block and a real early transmission probably c. 1920, also what looks like a dual quad cross-ram air cleaner. Any idea what this stuff is?

    1914 Grant Transmission Needed

    There's a 1913 Grant parts car that's been languishing in the Orange County, California Craigslist for a number of months now - it looks like the remains of a restomod project that went off the tracks but the transaxle might be salvageable. https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/atq/d/1913-grant-roadster-project/6590756671.html Good luck!

    Unknown small gas tank c 1950

    Someone told me this was from a 1950 VW Beetle. It is quite small, maybe five gallons max. And I have no idea what this little clip mechanism is that's attached to one side. Has the large filler neck like an early Bug. Any ideas?

    Spindles c. 1912-18?

    Another long shot... From a high-end make.

    Cowl lamp ca. 1913-15 - any ideas?

    This is a long shot – here is a cowl lamp with a brass body approx 4-1/8 diameter overall. From a fancier car. Note the side marker lens and aluminum mounting nut. Anyone recognize this?

    Early suspension parts - can you identify?

    Thanks for your help. I tried listing some of these parts on a well-known online auction site, but, not surprisingly, I didn't end up getting rich.

    More early suspension parts

    More unknown suspension parts... Shackle parts - apparently from a more common make. Spring bolts? U-bolts. More U-bolts.
  11. More early parts that are not Model T Ford. Any ideas? 1. Early leaf spring shackle, missing some parts 2. Another Early leaf spring shackle - I'm guessing the Alemite fitting was added later? 3. Knee-action shock part? 4. Same part, bottom view

    Small Parts c. 1920-1950

    I think the far left one is a late Model T body Part. The middle one is marked 6975B. The far right one has no markings on it. Any ideas?

    My grandfather's car in Washington DC

    No cowl lanterns, which suggests this car was equipped with electric start. That makes it no earlier than 1920.
  14. Is this automotive related?

    Oil Thermostat?

    This showed up in a box of Model T parts but obviously this fits something else. I'm guessing it's a bypass for an oil cooler, but not sure what car it fits. The cap comes off to reveal the bellows. Any ideas?
