  1. Saw this ad whilst browsing Facebook, or Spacebook, as I call it, Marketplace this morning. The link to the ad on Facebook is directly below. The only info listed is on the Dodge pickup, though the seller does mention that all three vehicles are available at one price. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/359667691104124
  2. Found the photos of this interesting vehicle on the 247 Autoholic site.

    Can Anyone Identify This Car?

    Well, I cheated and did a Google Image Search. If the search proved accurate, the car is a 1908 Maxwell Briscoe Model H. I have absolutely no idea if that is correct. I remember trying to ID this photo some time back. Apparently, I did not think to do a Google Image Search at that time.

    Hubcaps look sort of like the Chevrolet bow tie. Here is a 1930 Chevrolet for comparison.

    what is year, make, model?

    Think I'm gonna change my mind and go with the Oldsmobile, too. Hood trim seems to match it better than anything else. Sure thought the grille looked like a LaSalle or Caddy, though.....

    What about a 39 La Salle?

    1938 Oldsmobile pickup truck

    Quite an oddball, for sure. Family resemblance to the Chevy & GMC of that year, though the cab seems a little taller and the door windows are arched a bit more.

    So I guess I'm a Chrysler guy now

    Agreed, they stop very well, and you can lock them up easily - unless the master cylinder blows out. I blew out the MC on a 1954 T&C Station Wagon - every single thing had been rebuilt or replaced in the braking system, with the exception of the power booster. Traveling about 50 mph, I topped a hill, only to see traffic backed up at the bottom of the hill. I hit the brake firmly, to give enough time to bring that heavy beast to a stop. The pedal caught for a moment, then slammed to the floor. I'm very grateful that the car had a good-functioning emergency brake. That taught me a lesson I won't forget.

    For the sake of safety, I'd think about converting to a dual pot master cylinder. As a daily driver in today's traffic, she's gonna have to mash that brake pedal pretty hard to whoa that thing down. It's not a great experience to jam the brake pedal, and feel it go to the floor. I've been there, done that. Great car, though.
  10. It somewhat resembles a Willys Aero or Bermuda (whatever they were called) from around 1955.

    What Is It? 2018-02-11 0956

    I believe this might be a Peugeot. If so, I'm wondering the approximate year. Thanks in advance for all your responses.
  12. Yeah, the Ford products from 1952 are supposed to be the first PRODUCTION cars with suspended pedals, I guess. But, these appear to be the earliest ones I've seen - period - on an American car. Not familiar enough with foreign brands to know about them.
  13. It looks as though some of the Playboy cars used contemporary Mopar radios, distinctive due to their vertical configuration versus the more common horizontal type. The speedometer/instrument cluster is tantalizingly familiar, but, so far, I can't figure it out. I've attached three different images, and I wonder if a knowledgeable person, such as Keiser31 or another like-minded expert, might recognize it almost instantly. Additionally, the clutch and brake pedal arrangement seem to suggest that this might be a suspended pedal setup, rather than the more common pedal through the floorboard type. Were there any other Amurrican autos with suspended pedals at this time? Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your responses.
  14. I really enjoyed the current issue of AACA magazine featuring the piece on the Playboy Automobile Corporation. A lot of information about how the company was formed, how it tried to stay viable, and how it came to an end. Several interesting photos, to boot. Cool stuff, if one is interested in such things. I really like the magazine.

    When was this?

    The car closest to the fire hydrant appears to be a Valiant from 1960-62. The car on the other side of the Valiant looks like a 1963 Buick.
