  1. Craigslist Ad, not mine. https://charleston.craigslist.org/cto/d/1929-willys-knight/6716738816.html I haven't seen the car but did contact the owner. He really wants to see it restored with the original engine, but the street rodders want it. At the current $4500 price it won't be long before it has a GM 350 in it. Owner is open to offers from a prospective restorer. The phone number listed in the ad is 843-200-0553 and the car is near Charleston, SC. Don

    71Riviera questions

    Getting it checked by mechanic was the best thing you could do. A lot can go wrong when a car sits a long time and those things should be fixed before you worry about the sound. Pay special attention to the brakes which have rubber parts that deteriorate with time even (or maybe especially) if they are not used. Brakes are more important than a muffler. Congratulations with the Riviera. They are beautiful cars. I was lucky enough to have a dad who let me get my first car -- an antique needing lots of attention-- at age 15. Sixty years later I'm still into cars. Don

    1924 Cadillac Opera Coupe for sale

    Ed has said it a couple of times. Let me try to clarify. IT'S NOT ED'S CAR. He simply saw the ad on the internet and thought someone here might be interested. I do that myself sometimes as a service to other forum members. Contact information for the seller is in the ad. Don

    For sale

    Logical guess, Keiser. Now guess where it's located and whether it runs or not. Don

    Flat Head Straight 8 327

    Or, if someone was just a little devious he could put Chevrolet emblems on a Packard and fool 90% of the public. Not that anyone on this forum would do such a thing. Don

    Can I confirm a 1960s AACA award winner?

    I looked in my copies of the 1957 and 1961 Register of Antique Automobiles from AACA and HCCA and found lot of 1911 Maxwell AB Runabouts, but none with that serial number. Don

    Flat Head Straight 8 327

    Did the 1951 Chevrolet with the straight 8 engine look anything like this? Don
  9. Bodies in the early days were formed from a complex wood structure with the metal stretched over the wood. Closed cars were much more expensive to build than open cars and were therefore higher priced. Look at the complexity of the roof framing on this 1928 Chrysler Landau sedan and compare it with a touring car. The price difference is easy to understand. Don
  10. Matt, I finally got a chance to go back through my old photos to find these slides made in 1966. Could this have been the same car? It has a Georgia tag and was at a show in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Don

    1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210

    And I don't believe I've ever seen one with a light blue body and dark blue accent. Don

    CHuDWah, Thanks for posting these brochures. I never knew so many lines included Business Coupes. Don

    1929 Willys Knight on C/L

    Still for sale, reduced to $5500. I'm amazed the street rodders haven't grabbed this up already. Someone should save it with the original sleeve valve engine. Most people (including myself) have never seen/heard a running Knight engine . https://charleston.craigslist.org/cto/d/1929-willys-knight/6668038951.html Don I have listed a 1929 willys, solid car and all original except for paint job! I have the engine pulled because it needs a new piston, i do have the engine and everything that goes with it except the new one. Please feel free to call, text or email, thanks 843-two hundred-0553 is the number listed.

    1954 Chevy Bel air. An impossible restoration?

    The windows appear to be tinted. That's a plus. The windows alone should get your $200 back. Did you get any of the exterior Belair trim? Any interesting accessories that are not seen in the photos? Don
