  1. Thanks - I'll give them a call.
  2. Well, I thought I had found a great brass plating shop and after the first batch of parts came back, I'm on the hunt again. I sent a couple instrument housings and a pull light switch panel - simple enough I thought?? Was promised 2 weeks and took 2 months...then to come back looking the way they did just won't cut it. Problem - no prep work and them no buffing - just dipped and dried it appears. Hard to tell about color consistency which is so hard for brass plating. Does anyone have a shop they can recommend? Would appreciate any leads! Thanks, David

    Teens early 20's Frame wanted

    Al - email sent. David

    Stutz? - if so, year amd model please.

    It is a Marmon - a 4 passenger cloverleaf roadster. Note the splash aprons were riveted to the frame as can be seen in the photo and which were integral to the stiffness of the chassis. Without "louvers" in the sides of the hood, it dates from 1916 to 1920. I had one (1917) and loved it - you could go 60 mph all day long but had to remember the "45 mph" brakes may not stop you as fast as you'd like!

    Need Oval Gas Tank

    Thanks for both replies but my speedster is a larger framed car and the gas tank will probably need to be 35" to 36" long and round. That's why I was looking to have one made and not having much luck.
  6. I've been down the road trying to repair as well and still can't fill the tank more than half full before it starts leaking. I was hoping to retain the originality, but it looks like I'll join the rubber hose route. Thanks!
  7. That's great - it opens up the possibilities of finding a tank. Thank you! Do you know of anyone reproducing the metal "accordion" connection between the tank and the filler neck?
  8. Looking for a solid gas tank for an 1104 (Super Eight) Packard. I'm told that a gas tank for any body style will be the same as long as it's for an 1104 with a 142" wheel base. Thanks, David

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
