  1. Horse hair used in many early cars and fine furniture was not the chopped hair of today, but long strand tail and mane which packs with more stability and is less likely to shift or "ball up". Yes, some of it was sewn to a fabric backing and not always burlap, some times a light weight duck. For many years long strand hair was available in old horse hair mattresses.
  2. I know of brass era car owners that had to have the windshields, tops and bows replaced as a result of not putting the top down before driving into their low roofed trailer during a rain storm. Measure your requirements, don't just guess!
  3. For what vehicle? Common ones are usually available at your local parts stores.
  4. I'd like to see these badges eliminated. The person that came up with this idea is over overpaid and underworked. They are not needed.
  5. True and I had to build a barn, and now that is half filled with junk!
  6. Somewhere here, in my files, I have a Manley Garage and Wrecker supplies catalog and may be able to find it. It has all kinds of garage and wrecker items used to operate a business in the pre WWII era. If interested, PM me.
  7. Please email me at rkjsburn@webtv.net or phone me at 860-868-7296. Thank you.
  8. Typical of an early accessory outlet house windshield. I've seen others, but not this particular one. I'm interested if for sale. Size and location would be helpful.
  9. It would be nice to know where it is and how much. You would probably get more response in the Franklin section of the AACA site.
  10. That is the stamping for the Whitlock Coil Pipe Co. of Hartford, Ct. They made radiators for several car companies and hood fronts for air cooled Knox automobiles.
  11. A little competition for the AACA library. I believe the HCCA has a relatively complete run of the Cycle and Automobile Trade Journal magazine from the late 1800s and is an excellent reference for early vehicles and their pieces.
