  1. I have many questions about sending to have new spoked wheels made. What do I do with the steel rims that fit the wood rims? Don't they heat, then fit them? If so, I can't paint them. I would guess, just sand, clean them. That would mean the inside of the steel would just be bare metal. Will the hubs be removable, once I get the wheels back? What do I use for bolts, as mine are shot? Half one front wheel, half one rear wheel - is that right? Must I send the (two) brake drums, and are they removable, once I get the wheels back? My 1918 wheels are too poor a condition, so I need new ones. Any help would be appreciated. Willy
  2. I am downsizing my antique car projects. I have a 1928 Whippet coach, two door complete automobile, with a storage shed full of extra parts - transmissions, radiators, fenders, wheels, hubcaps, miscellaneous. Rolling on wheels, (Montana) title. Light surface rust, no through rust. Motor apart - has scratch on one cylinder, probably from broken ring. Will sell complete collection - won't separate, for $5000. Thirty five years of collecting parts left me with many Whippet parts to other years, so selling those off will pay back much of investment. Photos included. More photos available.
  3. nash lafayette 1937

    Don't know what year it is, but I have a special heater for a Nash La Fayette that goes just behind the front grille. I might have the small (brass?) nameplate that says, "La Fayette". I'm thinking a 1939, but not sure.
