  1. Complete Saxon project for sale

    Sold for a little more than $2300. I hope there will be another Saxon on the road and touring.

  3. Complete Saxon project for sale

    The radiator on this really looks good, and they were sturdy units to begin with, made by Fedder. Many other detailed photos on request. This is, again, an ambitious project, unless you're interested in making a speedster. But that would be a neat speedster.
  4. 1915 Saxon Roadster project

    See the Saxon site further down for full information. The project...and I do mean project...is being auctioned on Ebay.
  5. Complete Saxon project for sale

    Happy to report that Irma did no damage. The Saxon is up on Ebay, though for some reason they've listed it as a "1915 Other Makes G80", though I think you can still find it as "1915 Saxon Roadster" I'll see if I can fix that. Here are some other pictures.
  6. Complete Saxon project for sale

    I will be putting a 1915 (?) Saxon four roadster up on Ebay within the next day. I pulled it out of a barn last week. It is fairly complete with an engine that turns over easily, with compression. It's a three speed, and has okay fenders. The body will need a lot of attention, as someone along the line has done some amateur repairs, and there is rust and wood issues. What is special about the car is that it has WIRE WHEELS, two extra rims, plus surplus spokes...you could upgrade these wheels to perfection. It also has good, original headlights, the original and rare aluminum fan, Saxon hub covers (four...all fitted on the hubs, so you know the hubs are round and good.) There is no interior. This is an ambitious project, to bring the car back to looking as it did in 1915. But a sportster, with those wires, might be fun. I'm going to put the car up with a starting price of $500, no reserve, and it will be listed as "1915 Saxon roadster." The car will have to be picked up from my home in midcoast Maine by mid October, as I'll be heading back down to Sarasota to find out what Hurricane Irma has left.
  7. How Does one 'Fog' an Engine.

    Fogging is essential for marine engines for winter storage. It's cheap and easy insurance against storage disasters. A shot to each cylinder, plus the carb.
  8. Latest Air Cooled News Cover - Great Picture

    The ACN gets an amazing amount of participation by Club members. There seems to be an endless number of stories about Franklins, Franklin history and car owners. We are now working to increase the frequency of technical articles, especially on series 10 and later. If you have an idea for an article, let us know. And thanks. --Alex and Jeryl.

    It would indeed! I look forward to seeing them!
  10. Booster install

    Does anyone have a diagram or photos that will help me reinstall the brake booster on my 37 Chrysler Airflow C17? I ok it off a couple if years ago, had it rebuilt at White Post, but now can't figure out how it goes. Back in.
  11. Please help identify

    Either a LaSalle or a Cadillac. This is likely Eleanor Roosevelt's car, a frequent visitor. The wheels seem like those in the original photo.
  12. Please help identify

    Wonderful. I thought the other might have been a Dodge, but your idea about the Studebaker looks right. Thank you.
  13. Please help identify

    Good eye. I see it, though the wheels are quite different. The rear fender on the Olds seems more elongated, but perhaps that is the angle. Window shapes are the same.
  14. Please help identify

    Here are three photos of automobiles associated with two twentieth century rights activists, the subject of a major display at the Castine, Maine Historical Society. I believe two cars, from the teens may be the same. I only have a rear shot of the car from the late thirties. Any suggestions?l
