  1. Link to Allen owners club mentioned above - http://www.fostoria.org/index.php/community-links/2012-05-14-14-45-59
  2. Know a little of the history of this Packard. When found by the present owner it had been "uted" ie the rear part of the body had been removed and it was used as farm vehicle/truck. The new owner wasn't able to locate another body and with measurements from another '22 Packard tourer the owner put to use his woodworking talents. He did this by building everything from the cowl back in wood, including a wooden roof(see pic below). Not to everyone's taste but he did the best he could with what he had and his skills and talent. Now if you'd like a very original '22 Packard 1st Series Six Tourer, which would a suitable HPOF candidate, see this one in the link. Think it's priced about AUD $50/55K. http://prestigeclassiccars.com.au/index.php/classic-cars-for-sale Scroll down past 4 Morris's to the Packard! Note: Presently the Aussie Dollar(aka the Pacific Peso) is worth about 3/4 of the US Dollar..
  3. One of which is Ford Model A. Looks like it, but looks can be deceiving! https://www.google.com.au/search?q=model+A+FORD+TIMING+GEAR&client=firefox-b&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj5zuWo_-PTAhWEpJQKHWXFCecQsAQIOA&biw=1346&bih=604
  4. In the Buy/Sell Forum is a 1930 Peerless Model A Standard Eight 5P Sedan Link - http://forums.aaca.org/topic/292565-1930-peerless-model-a-standard-eight-5p-sedan-15000/
  5. According to a translator je suis prêt is "I'm ready" in English.
  6. As far as I'm aware there is NO Forum rule to include price! The closest there is to that is a SUGGESTION that price be included in the post(along with other suggestions). Seems the "suggestions" have ascended to a higher level and have become "commandments"? You can read this in the first "pinned" post at the head of this Forum, link - http://forums.aaca.org/topic/70563-avoid-scams-please-read-buysell-forum-suggestions-buyers-and-sellers-please-read/ It also states: "It is NOT okay for forum users to make negative comments on a seller's listing, nor is it okay to question its asking price."
  7. Or a well known Australian actor - http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/actor-john-howard-finds-country-life-no-brake-on-his-movie-career-20140422-372nq.html
  8. Believe they are "Terne" plated - see this Wikipedia post - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terne Significant amount of lead in the "Terne".
  9. Back in the '60's, at least here in Oz, a lot of hot rodders used early Ford diff side housings just like these. Also used complete early Ford diff side housings cleaned and painted up with rope/chains strung between them for car shows displays.
  10. Thanks for the clarification Bob.
  11. Bob, You said: "Approximately 20 years ago, long before I owned this 1951, it was restored in Minnesota. Not knowing the circumstances back then, I could imagine rivets being replaced, during a restoration, if the rivets were broken or rusted or damaged." AND "I have read a copy of the statute or law, illustrating the form followed, for the inspection of my 1951 antique. The information is not next to me now, but the heading closely reads "for specially constructed, or reconstructed or foreign vehicles", none of which fit the criteria of my antique 1951 Chevy." Could you argue, that restored and reconstructed in relation to your car mean the same thing?
  12. Similar experience in an FC Holden Panel Van. One hot summer afternoon turning onto the then F4 Freeway west of Sydney, in 1974, a bee drafted in through the vent window and up the leg of my shorts. Made the eyes water, to say the least.
  13. Agreed!
  14. The 'De Caprio' Gatsby movie was made in Australia with the guy "scouting" for cars for the movie approaching our Packard Club for cars to appear in the filming. Only one made it, a '29 633 Runabout. Even though the owner of the '29 also has a '22 1st Series Sport Tourer. They deliberately upped the vintage of the cars to be used in the movie to the '30's. In fact the Duesey and the Auburn are 'Hot Rod' "film cars" with fiberglass bodies and Chevy V8's and were imported from the US for the movie. Another aspect was that CGI was also used in the car scenes.
  15. With difficulty, see this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UexiOL8I_3Y
