  1. I was assured that the car will be restored properly. I will let the new owner chime in if they wish. The one thing I do know is that it is going to a good home. A sad day really, I love the car but it is beyond my abilities. Thank you Jeff for all the help.
  2. I saw it just after I got married. My wife and I went to Vegas on our honeymoon and I actually convinced her to drive to Primm to see the Bonnie and Clyde death car. At that point I knew that I had chosen the right girl to marry. It is quite an impressive sight.
  3. There was a 1928 Studebaker that recently sold on EBay that a little more rough and it sold for $4100. As some have stated this could be used for a sedan delivery type vehicle and I have seen it done. I saw one that had a wooden rack that would roll in and out on the rollers to carry parts and various other items at swap meets. I bought this to restore, I am a Funeral Director and had hopes of putting this back in to service when I originally purchased the car. The car was originally dark blue with black fenders and top, and that was the direction that I was hoping to go. Now reality has set in and I have 2 options, 1) I could sell it and put the money to better use or 2) keep it in my garage in hopes of one day having enough money to actually restore it. I am still on the fence but am leaning toward selling. Thank you for all of the comments, I have even thought about just getting it running and drive it around a bit just the way it sits, maybe just put a new top on it.
  4. I have owned the car since 2001 and really just don't have the time or energy to put in to it. I am only thinking of selling because I feel the car deserves better. I can have it sit in my garage for decades in hopes that I can one day restore it or I can sell it to somebody that has the money and time to do it now. I really want it to go to a good home. I sold a 1936 LaSalle hearse years ago only to find out a year later that it had been cut up and rat rodded and it made me sick. I do not want this to meet the same fate.
  5. I was hoping to get some opinions on value and I hope that somebody can help me out. It's a 1927 Peerless hearse with a 150 inch wheelbase. This car is very complete, the motor is free and I have a clear WA state title in my name. There is some dry rot in the wood and the passenger door is not connnected due to dry rot. I spoke with a guy and he told me it would be a fairly easy fix for someone with experience, which is not me. I have came to realize that this this car is beyond my ability unfortunately and will need to get rid of it. The car is currently stored in my garage. Below are some photos that I hope help. The moto meter just sits on the radiator because the cap is the incorrect size for my car. I have a few spare parts as well. I have a 1966 Chevelle that I need to finish and this would help a lot.
  6. What parts are you looking for? I have a 1927 Peerless hearse and a few extra parts.
  7. It doesn't matter what computer I use I keep getting an error message. Is anybody else having the same problem?
  8. I was detailing parts on my car after transporting if to my house from my folks. I did somehow during the trip lose my map light cover. As I was looking I noticed some holes in the firewall. My guess is that it came equipped with a heater, but I thought I would post some pictures and get some others opinions. Are the heaters Peerless specific? You know when I bought this I thought it is going to be so cool having a car that nobody else has, and it is, until you need parts then it is very uncool. Thanks for looking and any help you may be able to provide. Thanks, Jeremy Exterior Interior passenger side
  9. The problem is Ebay gives out so many free listings that it has caused a lot of people to list items with crazy prices because they have nothing to lose. There is a pair of Peerless threaded hub caps that I would really like but the BIN price is not even in the ball park of what they go for. If they charges for every listing I think it would help.
  10. Good job, that looks great. I just might have to copy your idea.
  11. I will try to get a better photo than this and post it soon. Some time before I bought the car one was stolen and replaced it with a different style door handle. Any help would be very much appreciated. From center to center of the mounting holes are 1 1/2 inches. From end to end it measures just under 4 inches. Thanks, Jeremy
  12. Does the AACA recognize funeral coaches or ambulances? I have a 1927 Peerless funeral coach that I would love to see on a show field some day. That day however is far, far away.
  13. Around here most guys have the don't even breathe on my car attitude. I was at a show with my family a few years back and there was a beautiful 1931 Cadillac V16 roadster. I saw a friend of mine and turned to say hi. Not but a minute later I turned around and my 3 year old daughter was inside the roadster (it was displayed roped off with the doors open). I ran over there and got her out, then the owner appeared. He told my daughter "it's ok honey you can sit in it". He then grabbed a vintage hat that was displayed with the car and let her try it on. Just the nicest guy you could ever meet. We had a long talk and I thanked him for making my daughters day. He said hey, it's just a car and when all of us old timers are gone who do you think will taking care of these old boats. I must say that was not the reaction I was expecting.
  14. Thank you Jeff, I can't thank you enough for all of the help you have provided. If there is anything I can ever do for you just let me know.
