    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
  4. I'm not in the photo but am the one behind the camera. Left to right are my sister, a neighbor boy and my brother posing in the 1927 Chevrolet my father FINALLY bought me after I pestered him a long time for an antique car. It was about 1957 and I was 14 at the time. He paid $25 for it. This was a true barn find, pictured here with my sister at the wheel just after we removed it from the barn. We pumped up the tires and my dad towed it home 70 miles with a rope. You wouldn't dare try that today. His friend steered and stopped the '27. I got it running and drove it around the neighborhood some but never got around to restoring it. Not long after that I was able to purchase this 1928 Chrysler 52 from the original owner for $15. After replacing a broken axle I got it running and actually drove it to high school and college occasionally and on a couple of AACA local tours, one about 100 miles long. With the help of a friend we replaced all the bad wood but never completed the restoration. By the time I got my drivers license I had four cars -- these two and a parts car for each. but ultimately life interfered (marriage, baby, etc.) and I sold them all to raise funds for a down-payment on our first home.

    Help identifying this Peerless Coupe

    The body style is more properly called a roadster with a folding top and side curtains. A coupe would have a permanent, non-folding top and roll-down windows. Either way it's a rare and nice-looking car. Thanks for posting it. Don

    ID needed on prewar car #2

    1937 Oldsmobile it is. The high-mounted taillight and hood vent design make a positive ID. Don

    1927 Chandler Knight Parts

    Danny, Looking gat the original poster's profile it appears he has not visited the forum since 2014 so is not likely to see your post. You could try to send him s private message. If he is still using the same email address it might reach him. Don

    SOLD - 1941 Pontiac Torpedo Coupe

    Lee, You have two nice Pontiacs and they seem to be priced fairly. I hope you have had more response by phone or email than you've had on this forum. I can't believe no one has commented. Photos of the engine compartment and interior might help. If I weren't 1200 miles away I would be awfully tempted, especially on the black '41. Don

    1932 Dodge

    The car is gorgeous as is and I second the appeal of the blackwall tires. I would leave it exactly as it is. Don
  12. I just read in the newspaper about the Trans America Challenge 2018 which begins in Charleston tomorrow morning, May 27 and zigzags across the country finishing in Seattle June 17. There are 39 registered participants with cars ranging from 1927 to 1973. Almost all the participants are from Europe and Australia/New Zealand. Maybe you can catch them when they pass through your area. http://www.endurorally.com/pages/trans-america-2018 Don

    Identify car from picture

    I believe the car is on its top in the water. A Customline Victoria (2-door hardtop without the center post) would be a rare car. More likely it is a 2-door sedan with the center post. Don

    Any Crosley gurus here?

    1951 Crosley or 1971 Corvette? Tough choice. Don

    1947 Chevy Fleetline

    I was with you until I got to the photo. No problem with the color selection but PLEASE do the fenders in the same color as the lower body. I'm old enough to remember the 1947 models when they were new and I cringe when I see one with dark fenders. They did not come from the factory that way! By 1947 "fat" fenders were going out of style and the manufacturers did NOT try to emphasize them. I've always been a fan of the old Chevies. I remember my grandfather coming home with a brand new 1948 Styleline, but the '46 through '48 Fleetlines are among my favorites. The 2-door was much more popular then and still is, but that makes the 4-door quite unusual and interesting. It always seemed rather stately to me. It looks like you found a nice one. Don
