    What's your most 'unexpected' part find?

    I hope I'm not too far off subj. In 1979 I was trolling Carlisle PA wearing a cardboard sign; "Maserati parts wanted". I had a 1961 3500gt at the time. Carlisle was an unlikely place to find Maserati stuff, but a vendor spoke up and gave me the phone # of a garage (in PA) where a homeless Maserati was said to be languishing. It turned out to be a complete and rare 1956 Maserati A6G 2000 Allemano, 1 of 21 built. I payed little for it, sheltered it for 35 yrs. untouched and sold it not long ago for $$$,$$$.

    Spare Tire Cover - precise Year & Model

    Thank you Vila.
  9. It should'nt be this hard for me to figure exact year & model Chev, but the pictured cover was returned to me by a buyer because "it did not fit" his 17" wheel. The covers inside diameter is 28-1/2". A 17" wheel is just barely too large at a 29" diam. Most mid 30's Chev passenger cars used 17" wheels up to 1936 . After reviewing Chev parts books online I see 1936 Chevs with knee action had 17" wheels while non-knee actions had 15" wheels. So perhaps my cover is for a 1936 Chevrolet Master DeLuxe coupe or cabriolet without knee-action? I'm looking for confirmation..Thank you. Hub cap opening is precisely 7".
  10. Inside looks right but not outside. https://www.prewarcar.com/16713-hudson-super-six-offener-tourenwagen-1920-for-sale
  11. I see that now, thanx nz.
  12. Hello Library, The 5" max photos are too tiny and not zoomable. The mystery photos would be easier & more pleasureable to look at if they were scanned at high resolution. I'd like to have the mystery photos fill my 12" X 20" computer screen. Thanx, Jim
