  1. I have a 1947 Roadmaster Sedanette. It's time to buy a set of bias tires. The 1947 sales brochure shows the car with wide whitewalls. I'm assuming the car could have come with blackwalls. Does anyone know for sure? Thanks, Ashby
  2. Thanks Al! The car has a heater and defroster so maybe that's what the K represents. Ashby
  3. Can someone decode everything on this tag? It's on a 1947 Roadmaster Sedanette.
  4. This isn't technically pre-war, so I hope no one minds. It's one of my favorites. Sorry for the glare on a couple of these, they don't fit on my scanner.
  5. Here's four 1937 ads from my collection. It's interesting to read the variations in the language depending on what magazine the ad appeared in.
  6. Not mine. I'm posting for a friend trying to find these a new home. His friend is cleaning out a building and was going to take them to the scrapper. Hopefully someone can use them. I don't know the prices, but they are willing to crate and ship. They are located in Oklahoma City. Please call Rob at four zero five six one five zero one seven five if you are interested. They think this is a IHC block and tranny so I'm posting it here. If someone could identify them that would be great. This is all the info I have. Thanks, Ashby
  7. Not mine. I'm posting for a friend trying to find these engine blocks a new home. His friend is cleaning out a building and was going to take them to the scrapper. Hopefully someone can use them. I don't know the prices, but they are willing to crate and ship. All blocks are located in Oklahoma City. Please call Rob at four zero five six one five zero one seven five if you are interested. *Updated to reflect forum members' input.* The blocks are 1 Buick straight 8, 1 Mopar slant 6, and 1 Chevy straight 6. This is all the info I have. The 2nd pic is of the 8, next 3 pics are the Mopar block and the last 3 are of the Chevy block. Thanks, Ashby
  8. While I've got the oil pan off my 1937 Roadmaster to replace a leaky gasket, I pulled the oil pump to check it and clean the screen. The gears and housing look good. The cover has minor wear. The notch at the end of the shaft has some wear. Is this wear acceptable? Would you re-install and keep driving? The oil pressure has been good. It does get near zero when the motor is hot and idling. I'll resurface the plate as suggested to Liesberg in his thread. Are there torque specs for the oil pan? The new gasket is cork.
  9. Trying to identify this car. This is the only picture I have of it. Thanks
  10. Marty, If you can't get them made locally, try Rare Parts. http://rareparts.com/ They made a set of upper & lower steering knuckle pins and bushings for my 1937 Roadmaster. Not the cheapest place, but the quality is good. Ashby
  11. Thanks for the responses. Hopefully the full history of these will come out one day. I look forward to Steve's article.
  12. I recently purchased this topper. It caught my eye because of it's old age and weight. The U's appear as V's. The back is inscribed "Pattern Do not destroy 1944" Maybe this was done to save it from a metal scrap drive? Any other ideas? Thanks
  13. I'm going to change out the rear end fluid in my 1937 Roadmaster and install a new differential cover gasket. What are the torque specs for the cover bolts? Thanks
