  1. Hi, sorry - for the C-1550 all I have is the box. No speaker and no controls. If you can use this I'd be happy to sell it cheaply. Peter

  3. Hi Kirk, our dad bought the Auburn in 1961 from the original owner. It had been in storage since 1933. He painted and plated in 1962 and it's been one of the family cars since then. Otherwise all original - it's a great car.
  4. Agreed, I have a 35 Airflow DeSoto Sedan. Over 50 mph (as indicated on the speedo) is getting too fast for my liking. Peter
  5. Elmhurst ... Do you need headights? I have one complete 24-25 Maxwell headlight and one other headlight rim. Peter
  6. Hello Jak, I have a 1927 Auburn 6 - 66. How much do you want for the parts book? Peter
  7. Back in the 1920s my grandfather was a trucker, hauling fruit up and down the steep hills of Kaleden, B.C. to the local packing house. He bought this 1927 International, which hauled more apples than ever, but he would have been better off with a 1928 model - the year they introduced 4 wheel brakes. In the second picture he is seated in the back of his 1962 Vauxhall Velox. He was in his 70s when he bought this car and drove until he was nearly 100.
  8. Thomas, I have a REO speedometer and a steering column mounted ignition/headlight switch. Do you need these? Peter
  9. It is brass. You may have to have one nickel plated yourself. Peter
  10. I have a spare motometer, large diameter, but it's generic. No REO or any other car make on it, Peter
  11. Can anyone tell me which cars used Clum ignition switches in the 20s? I believe Dodge Brothers did, anyone else? I've been told the the switch on early Harleys was actually a Clum switch and I'm hoping to find something similar. The Harley switch I'm after had a set of points inside that buzzed if the key was on and the engine not running. A battery saving feature, I guess. Has anyone heard of a Clum switch (or any other in the 20s) that does this? Thanks for any info, Peter
  12. Can you show the inside? Is there a bulb socket and some way to mount it? Peter
  13. Still looking for a home for this radio...
  14. Philco Transitone F1640 radio. Used in 1939 Fords. Receiver box only, no head, cables, or speaker. Everything seems to be in the box and looks good but I have no idea what it would take to get it working. $100 USD + shipping from Canada. I also have most of a Philco C1550 (37 Chrysler) that perhaps could be used for parts if necessary $50 USD + shipping.
  15. There were Russell agencies as far away as Australia, but I believe they were just in Commonwealth countries. Here is a picture of a row of Russell cars at Toronto City Hall, circa 1909. The man in the bowler hat in the front car is T.A. Russell. Apparently, he went on to become the president of the Massey-Harris (later Ferguson) company. We have several Russells in our local HCCA group. Peter
