  3. Swap Meet Food - Any Stand-Outs?

    1/2 grilled chicken and roll $3.00 or a complete dinner for $4.50 for years at Carlisle. It couldn't be beat!
  4. 1920s Car Radio

    Philco Transitone installed in 1931 Packard when new, most likely by dealer. Replacing cord insulator for roof antenna installed at factory when new.
  5. I believe NZcarnerd is correct. This is a 1913 Chalmers Six Torpedo which was the largest of their models, 54 hp. $2400. as compared to the 36.
  6. This place is known as Devils Den now and in those days and during the war. I had a photo of the Wanamaker family in their 1904 Winton taken at the same spot. As stated previously, this was a popular destination and a trolley line also went there. There are many photos taken at this same spot with automobiles and their caretakers. Robert Barrett of Angola , New York has one of these musical devices on his 1912 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost touring and can play it as well.
  7. This photo is taken at Devils Den at the Gettysburg Battlefield, a popular destination for automobilists.

  11. "Are you saying that I should take the plate off to see the manufacturer or is the manufacturer's name on the edge of the plate?"Removing the plate only gives access to the valve chamber and will not have any name or other text. Serial numbers are often stamped on the cast frame usually around the crankshaft bearing area.
  12. Columbia Six cars

    Perhaps you are thinking of President William Howard Taft as President Roosevelt was not an outsized man.
  13. What Car and What Year #1

    So, even though the cowl/firewall and lower corners of the radiator are different, it is still a Rainier?????
  14. The 1935 passenger and commercial shafts are the same EXCEPT the measurement from the lower end (face of worm gear bearing) to the first locking sleeve retaining screw hole is 37.18" passenger and 32.45" commercial.
  15. Introduction and Autocar beginnings

    There should be a large brass CAUTION plate above the water outlet to the water pump on the l/h side of the engine telling you to refill the crankcase with 2 gallons of fresh oil every two weeks also be sure to remove both oil drain plugs and withdraw and clean the screens behind them.
