    Maxwell 1915

    Thanks Pete, I appreciate the pictures. I'm praying for you that the regulator is still functioning. I've been chasing Maxwell information and parts since 1991 and this is the first time I've ever seen this variation. Could I get the measurements for the cover on your starter switch? I ask because I've ran across 2 sizes and the larger one is what I've seen the most but yours appears to be the smaller version. Howard Dennis

    Talbotracer, I was going over my files looking for information to help you when I discovered something I never noticed before because I've never actually physically seen a 1915 Maxwell. Unlike later Maxwell's it appears yours does not actually have a central dash panel. Maybe you could help me with my files and post pictures showing what your regulator looks like and where it is located? Howard Dennis

    Like I said above many changes can happen over 103 years. I'm pretty sure your Model T like conversion is an Atwater-Kent distributor that came out on the Late 1917 Maxwell. Between 1915 and 1919 Maxwell used about 8 different dash panels and wiring configurations. Could you post a picture of your dash panel that also shows the fuse panel configuration? Howard Dennis

    Two questions, do you have a Simm-Huff starter/generator AND also a Simms-Huff magneto? I ask because a lot of things can get changed in 103 years! Here's factory literature on a 1915 Maxwell. Howard Dennis

    The Ridgefield Meet === RIP

    So Bob, you mean one of my first collector car photos was of the great author Ken Purdy's car? Boy, I used to love the way he wrote about the great cars! You almost came away from his description of a ride smelling of gasoline and old grease, white knuckled and windblown but hooked forever! Howard Dennis

    Just realized after I posted these pictures of the Alco that early in my life I followed 2 Vanderbilt cup racers being driven on public roads onto an antique car meet field. Bet not many have had that privilege! If anyone has ever entered the Vanderbilt Estate in Hyde Park New York try to imagine the beauty of that drive way and views being awakened to the popping roar of this beast, quite a privilege indeed!

    The Ridgefield Meet === RIP

    Close to where I found the above photos I also found 2 of Joel Finn's Alco and at first thought they were taken at the Ridgefield meet but after examining the large lawn and huge trees now believe they were taken on the massive lawn of the Vanderbilt Estate in Hyde Park New York. A very fitting location for a Vanderbilt Cup winner. Howard Dennis

    The Ridgefield Meet === RIP

    Bob, thanks again for bringing this great memory back. We've discussed this before about a 17 year old car nut following Old 16 down NY Route 22 to this meet which was my first ever antique car show. Wow what an impression it made on my life! I apologize for poor photos taken by a cheap camera 50 years ago and now viewed through a sealed plastic album page at least that old. Imagine the joy in me to see a fully restored example of a 1932 Plymouth as I had just acquired the exact same model and had great plans on bringing it back from the dead and just had to get a picture of me standing along side it and dreaming of the day I could take the same picture of my own Plymouth. The Duesenberg stuck in my mind not only for what it was but it was for sale for $50,000 which seemed to me a bargain even then. Hope some will remember these cars and add details unknown to me. The double cockpit Bugatti wowed me as I had never even seen pictures of such a body and though what a great idea to combine wooden boat styling with cars. Wish I'd had enough film to capture the whole car as well as others there that day. Howard Dennis

    Points for Maxwell

    Just in case any new owners need information on their Atwater-Kent Type CC distributor here's a good source: http://www.oldcroak.com/atwater-kent-cc-and-ca-ignition-system/ Howard Dennis

    Ian, just curious how you figured out when a serial number was produced? Do you have production number tables I've never seen?
