  1. ISO Crow Elkhart

    I neglected to mention a 2" high stack of ads that would go with the car and àn an advertising finger ring with the Crow-Elkhart logo.
  2. ISO Crow Elkhart

    I have a 1916 Crow-Elkhart project car. I have a Virginia title for it. It has a touring body and a tulip body. The Lycoming engine was overhauled before I got it. One of the two transmissions is assembled (one is a spare). I have an original owners ànd an original acquaintance manual for it. There are many extra parts for it. It took four of us an hour to load everything.
  3. Wanted: 1922 740 Parts

    Jared, I have a 1921 735B and am about 40 miles west of Winchester, VA on US rt 50. If you wanted to look at my condenser mounts, you are welcome to come.
  4. WTB: Two 25" split rims

    I have 5 Firestone rims similar to what you want. They do not have the boss or pin as shown in one of your pictures. Four of them have 34X4 1/2 firestone non-skids mounted and the rims are mounted on wheels. The wheels are solid with good spokes, however, they do not have hubs. If interested, I can send pictures by pm.
  5. FS 1947 Packard Clipper

    I am attaching a picture of the interior. Jim
  6. FS 1947 Packard Clipper

    I have for sale a 1947 6 cylinder Clipper. It has excellent paint, and chrome. The interior has been redone with the exception of the headliner, the new material goes with the car. It has a new battery, regulator and the generator was rebuilt. The starter has a new armature. The gas tank was restored by Renuzit, and the fuel pump was rebuilt last year along with a new 6v electric fuel pump. The radio was restored by a previous owner and works well. There are many extra parts that go with the car. It has been a good touring car. I am asking $17,000 for it.
  7. WANTED: Stanley engine

    Condensing or non-condensing?
  8. I had a Ross steam car engine, but alas I sold it about 8 years ago.
  9. Don, At first I was going to say boiler pressure, but upon thought, the lubricator pump would be operating when the car was in motion and steam supply pressure to the engine would be less than boiler pressure. Now, my best answer would have to be "I dunno". Sorry Jim Showers 1921 735B
  10. Make a reasonable offer.
  11. Here are some pictures of some of the stuff. There is much more not shown in this building and in another. The price is negotiable.
  12. license plates

    Almost all YOM plates in WVA. I have a 1921 plate for my 21 Stanley, and the DMV will not allow me to use it as the number falls in their handicap numbers, and they do not want to remove that number from the handicaps.
  13. As an addition to the above information, I neglected to mention that the bodies are a 5 passenger touring and the other is a cloverleaf or tulip type of body. the tulip body would be much different from anything usually seen on the road.
  14. I have for sale a 1916 Crow-Elkhart project. The 30hp Lycoming engine has been redone according to the previous owner,and turns over. There are two bodies, 9 or 10 wheels, two transmissions and rear axles, the frame is in primer. Many, many miscellaneous parts. It has a good Virginia title. Included is an original owner's manual and an original acquaintance manual and also many advertisements from the era. At my age, I have decided that I will not live long enough to restore the car, too many projects ahead of this one. For pictures of all the stuff, please contact me by PM.
  15. Recommended Tranny oil

    I use synthetics in both my 1941 120 and 1947 Clipper. The only issue I have is that if I shift gears too fast, the gears will grind. It is not a fault with the synthetics, but a factor of worn synchronizers in a 71 and a 65 year old transmission. I wouldn't change back to non-synthetic and am just a little slower in shifting to compensate.
