  1. Sir: I once tried to buy a 1938 Buick convertible that had the rumble seat and rear trunk. It was a complete car but needed absolutely everything done to it to bring it back to show-car condition. The owner wanted a 'show-car price' for his un-restored car so I had to pass on it! Every time I drive by the farm where the car was stored, I think about that car and what if???? Oh well!! we can't get 'em all! Indian Four
  2. Sir: I purchased a 1917 Auburn Beauty Six in Ft. Wayne, Indiana back in the 1980's. This was the only year that Auburn Automobile Company used the Teetor-Hartley engine in their vehicles. I had the complete automobile except the rear part of the body that the rear seat mounts in. I advertised nationally for several years and could never find the rear body section. I, reluctantly, sold the remains and it finally ended up in the State of Michigan. The new owner completely rebuilt the Teetor-Hartley engine and installed it in his 1917 Pilot (?), which used this same engine. I very much wanted to see that Auburn automobile restored to its former glory but I couldn't seem to get the job done. There may have been other auto makers that used the Teetor-Hartley engine but I am not knowledgeable about that. Indian Four

  4. From an Auto Parts store that closed in the early sixties (60's) I have two boxes of contact sets made by TUNGSTEN. Each box contains ten setsand one box is marked FO1214L and the other is marked FO1214R.. I believe these are for '36 thru '48 Lincoln Zephyrs. I also have several boxes of new condensors, all manufactured by TUNGSTEN. First come -- first served. Indian Four
  5. Sir: I do not own an Essex but my book says: 500000 to 706270. Listed on firewall under hood and on rear cross member on the right. Six Cylinder. Hope this helps!
  6. George: I once owned a 1926 Amilcar Type E Speedster that used those same Rudge-Whitworth wheels that you are showing. Took the tires with the clincher beads. Indian Four

  8. Indiana Region Classic Car Club of America: In the mid-sixties, Mrs. Gladys Gehrt owned and displayed a Dupont Speedster at the Grand Classic held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Later on, this car was driven on the Indiana--Kentucky "Blue-Grass" Classic car caravan and was driven by a very good friend and Classic Car owner, Jim Silvey who is now deceased. Those were the days!!! This was a high-point car, very desirable and attracted attention every where it appeared. What an automobile!!!
  9. Sir: According to Chiltons' manual, the serial number for 1929 Buick 6-60 ended with #2175065. 1930 Buick 6-60 started at 2341626 and up. Probably manufactured in 1929, though! Indian Four
  10. Was interested in your query about the "DU" lycoming engine! I cannot find anything on that series but do notice a "TU" Lycoming engine listed. This was used between 1914 and 1922. Indian Four
  11. I purchased this car in 1972 and it has been patiently waiting (in a heated garage) for a total restoration for 36 years! It is now apparent that I am not going to get it done! This is a totally complete and solid car with no rust through except drivers side floor pan. It has wrong carburetor and wrong fuel pump but I have them on hand. This car needs every thing to be restored: engine rebuild, complete paint and upholstery, new tires etc. It needs the works! But it is all there and is a very solid car. Accepting the highest offer! Leave me a private message on this board or call 812-350-3247. (Has original radio and Southwind heater!)

  16. I was a member of the Classic Car Club of America in the mid sixties as well as being a member of the Indiana Region of the same Club. Norman Beck was a member during those same years and he would drive his Marmon down to Indianapolis whenever we had exhibitions to do; either at Shopping Malls or any other car shows. I am sure that he attended the Grand Classic judging shows that were held every July at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on several occasions. Who could forget the body lines on that car! There is not many closed cars that are attractive as far as body lines are concerned but this car was an exception! With that lllooonnnggg hood and rather small body, it really stood out! Most of all, it was a joy to talk to Norman about his experiences with the car, especially during World War 11 when gasoline was rationed. Somehow, he dropped eight cylinders and ran the car on the other eight! He was quite an innovator and he was surely a joy to talk to! I had to drop out of the Classic Car Club but I have often wondered what happened to that beautiful-bodied car and to Norman. I am sure that other members of the Indiana Region Club could surely tell you more about this Indiana built car and its former owner. Don Knight of Edinburg

  20. I have a collection of Indiana plates, dating from 1913 to the present. I purchased the main set in the early 1960's and have been adding each year since then. Anybody interested in buying the entire collection? Indian Four
  21. Sir: Did you have any luck in finding a spark-plug cable holder for your Packard? I have one in my spare parts box that measures twenty seven inches long with the mounting holes twenty one and three eighths center to center. At one time, I owned a 1933 convertible coupe standard eight and also a 1931 sedan four door. How and where I came by this piece, I'll never remember! Maybe at Hershey back in the Sixties!
