  1. Wanted 1914 Cadillac distributor

    Charlie.....try Ron Blisset in Norman Ok. He may have one.
  2. Wanted For 1928 Stutz - Spring U bolts

    AJ should have the front ones off the parts chassis he bought......if he didn’t junk them.
  3. Reo Royale

    I can still get it done.......needs a manifold with an EE-3...........vroom vroom!
  4. Speedster/race car trailer "Period stuff"

    Hurry up! You bought that thing when I was a teenager, and I’m almost ready for social security!
  5. Hi Al........give me a ring sometime tomorrow, I’ll be on the road driving north. Ed
  6. Auburn Speedster paint scheme

    AJ, the car had the new and trick Goodyear multiple rib side walls on it........a correct in the era design that have been out of production for quite a while. There were many positive comments on them. And, by the way, I just finished another set of wheels...........painted spokes so we can have blackwalls also.......where are my spoke covers?🤔
  7. It Wins!! Amaxing Buick wins at Amelia Island!

    Careful what you wish for Steve, I am cleaning out the garage next week, and have two trunks and four sets of Pilots that need to find new homes........... It is a FACT that a true car collector can NEVER have too many Snap-On cabinets or tools. Used the Sun distributor machine for several hours today......that is a keeper!
  8. Distributor rebuilder

    Brian and his crew do great work..........they are one of the busiest shops in the country. It’s getting close to Pebble.
  9. Whitewall overkill

    Easy fix...........👍 Just take them off.........
  10. Reo Royale

    I could tweek it and make it perform better. The motor can handle it, and I would enjoy testing it before and after. Punch it out, do a trick valve job, regrind the cam, bump the compression, recurve the distributor, put a decent carb on it, improve the exhaust, bet it could get another twenty percent out of it easy. Maybe you should send me your motor before you install it? 🔥 💥 💥 🔥
  11. Ford full classic?

    The touring was designed by Ralph Roberts at LeBaron, it is a CCCA Classic. The speedster MAYBE but not definite. (If it’s a ford factory custom job not likely, if built at Murrary and done by a known designer with documentation it would probably be acceptable.) The Roadster is unlikely. The speedster has always been an intact car, the touring car was extensively modified over the years, but looks like it was put back to it’s original configuration.......and it appears to be well done.
  12. Distributor rebuilder

    Most good shops are very busy, and require advance notice to get a time slot to get any major service done. Correctly rebuilding a Delco distributor isn’t difficult, but it is time consuming. The biggest problem is plating. Time, lost parts, missing and worn parts......it all adds up to more work and costs than one would expect. Add in rivets, data plates, paint, bad pot metal on some units.......and you can spend quite a bit of money. I spent the day setting up two 1930 V-16 Cadillac distributors. Both cars were restored and serviced by “one of the top restoration shops in the country”. They had incorrect modern points and wrong condensers. The gap was not correct for them, and the syncnaratizon was incorrect. They also glass beaded the internals, and didn’t replate them, so they were rusty. Doing thing right takes time and money, and many people just don’t even know how to do things correctly anymore. It’s the small details that make the cars run, and more often than not, they are overlooked.
  13. 1926 Rolls-Royce

    Having a cross out on a RR build sheet is common, enclosed drive is just a fancy name for a 7 passenger sedan. Its quite possible the car went from a sedan, and then was modified and updated into a town car with skirted fenders. New head lamps, ect. It's possible the Marshal headlamps are original, as that is what would be expected to see on a car delivered to Paris. It's also possible they are a later update as well. I would run an ad in the RR club publication asking about the car. It may also have been serviced at the factory at some point in its life, and at one time you could get the information from them. Detailed photos of the windshield and front doors from inside and out would help determine if the body was a sedan cut down in the era to a town car.

    It appears the incomplete and rusty parts car ad has a mistake in it.....it says 8500, I’m sure they meant $85.00
  15. '39 Packard V-12 timing cover

    Mine arrived last week, nice castings, no issues.
