  1. Delco, Remy & Delco-Remy history Question

    NZCARNERD, I did mean Durant, not Leland. I have a copy of Al Slones book on my shelf at home, I will have to look and see if it has much to say about the 1926 merger of the two companies. When looking for repro data tags we also have the big and small tags with the same info on the same year Pierce Arrows. They do not interchange as the pin distances are not the same. Karl
  2. Delco, Remy & Delco-Remy history Question

    In 1916 Durant purchased Hyatt roller bearing, Delco Light, and Remy, making them a part of "United Motors". Little did he know he would also get Al Slone as his successor who would run GM for many years. My 1929 Pierce Arrows all have just Delco tags on the generators, my 1930's have Delco-Remy. I guess the crash of 1929 was the final consolidation of the two companies to the same location as well, all the 1930 tags are from Anderson Ind. for 1930. Karl

  4. White Yellowstone bus frames

    The Pierce Arrow bus pictured above belonged to the e-bay seller hiperlightflyguy. (he sells data plate repros) He had it for sale a few years ago, I don't know if it found a new home or not. The pictures I saw of it then would scare most folks as the wood was in awful condition. He was not giving it away, I think asking price was $65K! I think he had history for that coach. Karl
  5. Delco Distributor 8 Cylinder???

    Marv, I found it: 1933 LaSalle Model 345C, 8 cyl., says it is interchanges with the 662Y. It also has a different point gap than the Y. Y 18-24", P 12-17". Auto advance, 11 deg max. Y and P replaces the 660Y which had 20 degree advance. Hope this helps. Karl

  8. ID these fenders

    nzcarnerd, does your car have a left tail light mounted in the fender? Karl
  9. ID these fenders

    I thought they would fit one of my Pierce Arrow's because of the rear edge until I saw the three holes in the left fender for a tail light, Now I don't know. Karl

  15. Philips Custom Body Co. Warren Ohio

    It is interesting that this thread is back. I had some tags cast in brass years ago, they are still in as cast condition, needing polished, plated and filled with black paint . If any Stutz Philips cars need them I have them for sale. I have also seen a 1928 Pierce and 1928 Packard in Convertible Coupes that have survived with Philips bodies. I often wonder if they were unsold Wills 26-27 bodies. Karl
