  1. Antique Auto Battery still in business?

    Thanks for the kind words, I'll give George a call. I'm planning to bring it again next April along with the WLA. Now ... if I could only find someone that makes a maintenance free battery for the motorcycle!
  2. Antique Auto Battery still in business?

    Rick - That's exactly the battery I was looking for. The last one I bought from them was 12 years ago and it lasted this long in my MB...go figure! I'm not in a big hurry, just awfully frustrated that there is no response. If I don't hear from them soon, I will try one of the Jeep suppliers. Thanks
  3. Antique Auto Battery still in business?

    Yep, they are advertising and even have a recorded message when you call either number. But..... there is absolutely no response at all! A courtesy of message back at least saying we're closed or busy would help. I know if you or I treated our clients/customers that way we'd have none after awhile.
  4. Antique Auto Battery still in business?

    Still have had no success after continued phone calls, emails, etc......must be out of business! Unfortunately they were the only ones that were making the battery i needed.
  5. Marmon 34 Parts

    Do not have the basic frame structure, but some bolt on parts. What do you need? Are you looking for a frame for a new project? If so, I do have an extra spare bare frame for a 1915 Stevens-Duryea D-6 similar to that in my other reply to your posting in the speedster forum.
  6. Looking for a Speedster Body Builder

    Here's where we're starting. It's a 1915 Stevens-Duryea 6 cylinder, 131" WB. Bought it as a parts car with the hood, front fenders, and cowl. Just too complete to part out and thought it would make a great speedster!
  7. Marmon 34 Parts

    Most of what we have is for the Model 34 (1916 - 1923) with a few Model 74 and 75 items. There is a bucket seat, cowl, set of 5 - 23" wire wheels, Boflex front bumper, instrument panels, rear end, internal engine parts (pistons, rods, etc), etc. Have a real nice steering column (Model 74) complete with gear box and wood steering wheel. Have already sold several complete engines, wheels, spare carbs, coils and starters. We will be making a more detailed inventory and begin posting here after the first of the year. If anyone has a specific need, drop me a PM. Also, there is a run of rear brake drums being planned if we can get enough interest. If anyone has interest they should contact Lou Iaccino (518-828-5581). Thanks!
  8. Looking for a Speedster Body Builder

    Yes, found a highly recommended guy in the tidewater area of Virginia. This is fairly close to home and will be easier to monitor progress. Will post photos when completed. Thanks for asking! David

    btt
  10. For the last 2 weeks, I've tried calling and emailing, leaving messages everywhere I can and get no response. Are they still in business??
  11. Not sure what will cross match other than the typical like spark plugs, magnetos, etc. Fortunately, I have found a very talented one man shop that can make most parts needed sooner than later and that will keep me on the road while I continue to search for originals. Had not checked the PrewarCar route, but will do so - much appreciated! David
  12. Speedster Builds.............

    Count me in on the tag as well - very nice detail! David
  13. ...the journey is always a challenge, but making new friends along the way makes it worthwhile!
  14. Ed, You are exactly right! This is actually one of 3 short wheel base cars known to exist and came to me as a "parts car". It (1915) was the last year of real production and there were estimated to have only been 500 made. It was a very complete rolling drive train (less the body) and I'm looking for a few remaining parts before adding the speedster body. I've never tackled such a project and it's been a lot of fun so far! Cast the word out....leads on any Stevens-Duryea parts from 1913 to 1915 would be appreciated! Thanks, David
