  1. WANTED - Saxon 3 speed axle

    You might want to put this inquiry on the Saxon site here on the Forum. And yeah, I have some three speeds around.
  2. Freewheeling, Olympic (success)

    After soaking the cable and shifter in PB Blaster for awhile, and the gentle use of a soft hammer, I was able to get the freewheeling to shift. Idoubt that it has been used in many years, but with the coasting cable pulled out, the little coupe coasted easily, and I was able to lock the coasting feature easily as well. Very satisfying to get everything working as it should.
  3. How Many Are Enough?

    One of the problems with living six months in the north and six months in the south is that you have to have twice as many old cars as "normal". Plus double the tools, double the lifts, double the tow vehicles, double the trailers, double the insurance, double the space and double the trouble. Of course, you have twice as much fun. Now, getting back to what's normal...😁
  4. Freewheeling, Olympic (success)

    Is there a source of information about the freewheeling feature on an Olympic? I've looked in the Club's q&a and couldn't find anything, and the operators manual has little to say about it. My freewheeling shifting pull is frozen, and that is either because it is just stuck or freewheeling has been deliberately locked up. I doubt that Ill use freewheeling even if I can get it to work, but it would be nice to have it operate correctly.

    Merry Christmas to you Dick..I understand that it may be a white Christmas for our Maine friends. Alex
  6. Hood ornaments

    There is someone who wants the emblem, so it should be no problem separating the two. What would you be willing to give for the Lion?

    Yes I had trouble with the first photo. Let me try again.
  10. Hood ornaments

    A friend has two Franklin hood ornaments that he'd like to sell. Years ago he mounted them on wood bases. One is the rampant lion with a Franklin emblem, the other is an Olympic. He wonders what they'd be worth, and since so gave no idea, I thought Id put them up on the Forum to see if anyone had a suggestion. IMG_0987.HEIC
  11. Saxon radiator badges

    No. I'm selling the Saxon script for the radiator. But I still have a few of those left.
  12. Touring Model T wanted

    Check the HCCA website, under classifieds. There are a couple offered there.
  13. Museum needs info

    Bill, thanks for the scholarship. It's exactly what I needed. Though my car has wire wheels and side mounts, the base price is what is relevant here. The car is heavier than I thought. You get free admission to the Seal Cove Automobile Museum!
  14. Museum needs info

    As many of you know, my 1931 Transcontinent convertible coupe is going into a museum for the next two years, as the centerpiece for a studied display of automobile advertising. They need to know the following for their i.d. Poster: 1. Original price of the car 2. Weight of the car. I know the basic specs of the car.. wb, hp., etc. I just don't know the price or the weight. Any help? Alex Huppe
  15. Pair of 1953 Cadillacs

    35 miles east of the Maine border? I suppose it depends on which border, or where on the border, but if you are 35 miles east of me here on Penobscot Bay, you're in mighty deep water!
