  1. Could you send a pic to my email? Also, do you have other parts from the car? Mike Barnes, Vancouver mjbarnes@telus.net
  2. Does anyone know a source for reproduction moldings of this type? Car is a 1924 Cadillac, but I imagine many owners of similar era cars must face the same question. Molding is rubber (I think) held in place with a thick strip of brass. mjbarnes@telus.net

  4. The 1924 V63 had a can something like that on the firewall. Please let me know if you want to sell it as I am restoring the car now. Cheers, Mike Barnes, Vancouver.
  5. Have just bought a 1924 Cadillac touring, though upholstery has been redone. There are documents for sale on the Cadillac Lasalle Club that show (apparently -- have not seen) lots of helpful photos for restoration.
  6. Many thanks, Grant P. Would it be convenient for you to email me a pic of the plate on the firewall? That way, next time I view the car, I can look at least for the holes, if not the plate. My email is mjbarnes@telus.net. Many thanks to all who have contributed info!
  7. What are the best price guides available?
  8. Jdome: How could such a plate be made with reference to an engine newer than the car? The engine number on the crankcase is 63A 1183, by the way, which looks right for the year. Thanks very much for your input, by the way.
  9. I was checking out a Cadillac touring car. In the owner's manual is a Cadillac plate, which I guess was once on the dash or firewall. Trouble is, the engine number on this plate does not match what is on the block, nor is it even the right TYPE of number: no letters, too many digits, etc. Does anybody recognize what year Cadillac this plate is from? Also where should it be mounted? Funny thing is, patent dates end early 20s, which sounds about right for the car. Only the engine number seems strange! Many thanks, Mike Barnes, Canada
  10. I will see about taking pics and posting. The Gold Book lists no closed Stutzes for 1924, but says a 1925 sedan in fair condition is worth $8000.
  11. I've come across a 1924 Stutz short sedan. Has been in one family since 1927, garaged the whole time, and on blocks ununsed since 1955. It needs a restoration but would probably start quite easily. Seems a nebulous question to ask what it's worth, but I'd appreciate feedback. How rare is this car? How desirable? It always seems to me from Ebay that closed cars from the 1920s are among the least valuable to collect. But this car is something. I could not believe the height of the engine when the hood was opened. Thanks, Mike Barnes
