  7. Unfortunately for the person having spent all of the funds on a fine restoration, they will be doing well if they obtain $35k for the car. From the general perspective of antique car lovers, the restoration helps ensure another piece of history will likely survive for a long time to come.

  15. I have a couple of questions, the first is what cruising speed to you find the car can support? The second question is in order to use the engine mounted compressor one needs a fitting to attach the hose-can you tell me the type of fitting which is needed? James in California
  16. I am guessing but would suggest that they were for leather straps to hold a fender/running board mounted and fitted piece of luggage. If you look at period auto magazines you can find a variety of shaped luggage advertised. Hope this helps
  17. The tires are mounted onto split rims. The rims are held onto the wheel with a nut and a mounting lug (several)which fits between the wheel rim and the tire rim. The wheels are normally measured in whole inches and the tires are sized using the diameter less 2 times their cross measurement. For example a 25" rim would commonly have a 34 X 4.5" tire and 34 less 9 equals the 25". I have a 16 Reo 6 cylinder and it has 25" rims with the 34X4.5 tires and uses Stanweld rims. I do not know if Reo used rims from other manufacturers.
  18. Could you please elaborate on "barn find" are they NOS, or used and under a pile of manure? Do they easily turn and work? It would seem straightforward to connect them to a 6 volt battery to determine a condition. I just had my Remy 241A restored a few months ago. depending first on condition and then on price I may be interested in having an extra.
