  1. What is this steering wheel?

    1962 or 1963 Chevrolet Impala ? 1962 shown.
  2. Nash Dealership ca. 1949

    My dad also had a 1950 Statesman four door. He bought it new. All the gauges were on a pod attached to the steering column. I was not a big fan of the design, especially the skirted front wheels.
  3. Nice car....I like the black tire/white wheel/pie pan combinations. Great look....
  4. 1961 Mercury Meteor 800 restore

    Looking good, Martin....
  5. DB, I searched this forum and someone stated that a Model T Ford switch will work in place of the Clum switch. He suggested going to Snyders Antique Auto's webpage, but this post is over 12 years old. This is for a switch tumbler. Don't know if this helps.
  6. McLaughlin-Buick from family album.

    What flags are those mounted on the car in the second photo ?
  7. Ethanol Free Gas at Convenience Stores...

    Dave, From Frantz's link to a list of Pure Gas stations, it lists that you can purchase 90 octane at Dixson's Service Center, 220 Southland Drive in Lexington.
  8. Advertising in the Antique Automobile magazine?

    ...and Auto Red Bugs 5 cents !!!
  9. Any idea of what this car is?

    It seems odd to me for it to have outside rear view mirrors on both doors (driver & passenger). Was Studebaker one of the first to have this ?
  10. 50 Dodge fluid drive shifter

    Charles, I don't know if this will help or not. I own a '51 Plymouth and the fluid drive transmission was never offered for the Plymouth. So, I can't look in my 1951 shop manual for an answer to your question. However, I have a Motors Manual (1959 edition that covers back to 1952), and when I look up "Dodge fluid drive" it refers me to the Chrysler section. Here is a photo from the Motor's Manual showing the side of the M6 fluid drive transmission. Maybe this will help a bit. Your levers on the transmission may look different, as the photo is stated for a 1957 transmission.
  11. Looks like a very nice wagon. Good luck with the sale.
  12. Yes, John, you have pretty much summed it up.
  13. Show me your Foliage!

    Thank you, everyone, for all the beautiful cars with fall foliage. I will add one.
  14. FS- 1931 Franklin Club Sedan- Good original

    Beautiful car !!!
  15. HOOD UP VS HOOD DOWN

    I have to agree with Doug and 1937. Hood down looks much better. It really shows off the shape of the car. If having the hood down disqualifies you from judging, I think I will go this route and keep my hood down. I will have to admit, however, several "lookers" do have some comments about my engine, etc., with the hood up.
