  1. Yes, the symbol of the buffalo was because K/F had intended to produce a front wheel drive car early on. The shape of the buffalo signifies that it has all "muscle" in the front I guess.This information is in the book, "The Last On Slot On Detroit"
  2. This pair of bezels were in with some Kaiser / Frazer parts. Arm lengths are 21" and 22" Can anyone tell if they fit either a K or F?

  6. This post takes me back in time to 1950. I was 18 and my brother who had a junk yard brought in this 1941 Chrysler Crown Imperial. It had a nice body and ran well. One major problem that I saw was that the power windows did not work. I took apart the front driver door only to find that the window cylinder was full of gunk. The gunk as found in a wheel or master cylinder from old brake fluid. Power window fluid back then was brake fluid. I positioned the window half up or maybe call it half down. Back in those years to make a turn, left or right, you would put your arm out the window to indicate what you had intended to do. Now to my point about the window, they were not voice activated. On the top of the dash near the windshield was this plate with 4 or was it 8 buttons, up or down, one for each window. I don't recall anything on the doors to raise or lower the windows. As a young man I do recall in the evenings after work I would put a dealer plate on a car. Once in a while it was the Crown Imperial. This car had a powerful 8 cyl motor and 3 speed shiftier on the column plus tip toe shift in each position so it had 6 speeds forward. I do recall wanting to do a spin out with those hugh 820x15 tires. As I popped the clutch all I did was break the welds of the spring perch on the axle housing and had the pinion shaft pointing up at the floor boards. A little side bar 6 years later in 1956 whenever I got married my brother gave me a 1930 Ford Model A pickup which I still have today. Now I wish it could also had been that Imperial
  7. My guess for this car would be either a 1947 / 1948 Frazer.
  8. Hi Ken, I have heard how good it looks from others. In the pictures it is very nice, I hope to meet you someday to get a look. You always seem to have the very nice stuff. John.
  9. I have a Western Auto spring shackle set with the part number S-4704. Can anyone identity? Thank you, John.
  10. Paul, I want to thank you once again for the helpful information. John
  11. Can anyone tell me what it does and what does it fit as to year and make? The hose fittings are for 5/8 hoses. Thank you.
  12. The part is 7 inches on one side 9 inches the other, 3/4 inch wide and the part number is 1378300. What is it for?:confused:
  13. My friend told me of the time years ago when he and his wife were traveling in and around Pitts. in a hard rain storm and their wipers broke. He had to stop the car and with some string he tied it to the wiper blade. One end of the string was fed through the drivers door window and the other end of the string through the passenger door window. So Ed would give the string a tug and Renee would relax and so forth. Ed only recalled having to continually keep saying, "Pull Renee, Pull Renee" all the way home.
  14. I like your story as I had gone through the same experience myself. At 74 years old I was given the remains of a 1918 Buick and I did not want to scrap it. I did have woodworking tools and a pile of dried walnut lumber and decoded to make a pickup. I live on a fixed income so there isn't a lot offunds to play with. Since the rear end gearing was gone I adapted a 1959 Ford 9 inch rear end to the 1918 Buick with open drive shaft and hydraulic brakes. I fabricated a seat and my wife upholstered it in red leather. After repairing the motor, installed new tires, got it to run we have enjoyed it the past 4 to 5 years. As for your fender clearance, with the rear axle in place measure the distance from the top of the rubber snubber that is on the axle up to the bottom of the frame and this will be when the tire will hit the fender. Knowing the diameter of the tire add few inches for clearance. Sorry, I think I should have said meters.
