  1. When I called about it via dealer/museum in Canton he spoke of having a duplicate Dietrich wrecked one too (flipped in a trailer accident or ...).
  2. Wanted 1935 1936 1937 Super Eight OR Twelve Convertible Sedan center pillar flip latch and probably also fits 1938 and 1939 Super Eight OR Twelve. Will take all three parts for the center pillar upper top latch all be it I do have the part that screws to the post. A rough casting / reproduction is fine as well.

  3. The cast of Rolls-Royce radiator/grill trademark "infringers" is usually Roamer, Moon, Elcar, and MacFarlan. A lot of people have said this is a Moon via hood louvers, but scale seems wrong as is price range for customization (ie this had Rudge wheels and .....). This was posted by Logan Mulford (a picture of his grandfather) out on the Facebook Art Deco Era Motor and Fashion Group - he was asking if anyone knew the make ? There has been too much guessing, so looking for a 20's expert and explanation of why they believe it is what it is.
  4. Sidenote: The actual leather strap is a whole lot more complicated than what is pictured here - may still have an original for pattern (strap is same from about 1925 to 1928 tourings and ends also all be it 1928 has a hammered pattern but they are brass and that can be removed). Also, some liberty was taken via upholstery of car pictured and I have never seen an unrestored car with rear seat foot hassocks. Ash tray also is a little more recessed into seat back. Also, club may have an original "plan" to build the leather strap via a later 20's touring.
  5. You can get new red wiper blades for Model A Ford (you may have to trim them) - try some of the better reproduction sources that specialize in people doing MARC high point cars.
  6. I installed an ACC set in my 55 Roadmaster - it was cut a little too oversized at the cowl kick panels, but could tuck extra behind panel even though I would have preferred them to be cut the same as originals,
  7. We are representing this 1935 Ford Cabriolet for a local estate (the owner died unexpectedly in 2015). It is a very nice restoration (done a few years ago) that was done to high point AACA standards. The car appears to always have been an exemplary cared for example. It is in very nice running order and a good driver - and car has had some preparation for touring, though I see little signs of touring use. A fully restored factory 1935 Ford radio was just recently added. The car was bought in 2014 in the low 50K range from a well know St. Louis dealer. The Estate is looking for offers in the $40,000 range - please make an offer. The car is on the South side of Dayton, OH. www.significantcars.com http://www.significantcars.com/cars/1935ford4/ Here are the listings from the prior purchase in 2014 from a well known dealer in St. Louis: http://www.schmitt.com/inventory/ds-1935-ford-convertible-cabriolet-2/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmqP4oZ8Vjo

  9. Wise move on taking down oil pan - I scraped a lot of crud out of the bottom of the last 1925 pan I pulled down.
  10. Replica Auburns have been made to "balance" as well
  11. Try "the filling station" or all chevs of the 40's
  12. www.packardplastic.com and www.yesterdaysradio.com (which now looks owned by LeVine Restorations) I bet I have an easy $3,500 in all plastic for a 1941 Packard 180 from yesterdays radio - but it is stunning !
  13. You may enjoy a CCCA membership - we have a very well done publication(s)
  14. You must remove the metal parts from the Bakelite throttle and light parts at the steering column (no exceptions - you cannot plate together). Various people have reproduced the die cast parts for the throttle and lights over time. I have painted the levers black on several cars now- the die cast just does not plate with structural longevity and ..... (not what I wanted to do, but .....). And, metal parts are riveted to Bakelite - you can drill out or use a Moto/Dremmel tool.
  15. Standard wheelbase - I believe roughly 132" - just well proportioned and 32 is a dynamite year for styling.
