  18. Good Question! I am not totally ruling out it was made by an individual. However in my 40 years of car collecting,I have viewed many many one off cars. If you first look at the steel body that has no fabric inserted in the middle top section,like most mid 30s cars,you have to ask,how could an individual build this?? Then look at the interior photos and notice how there are interior door panel covers,moldings,and then moulding panels on the inside and inside roof area. That looks like factory or studio work,not an individual who pieced something together in his garage.Let me put it back to you: Who during the depression would have had all the tools necessary as a private party to build such a piece? Inquiring minds want to know? Thanks for the question! George
  19. OK Everyone-Its contest time!! I will donate $100.00 to the AACA library in your name for the person who provides me with new written info and or a photo of my car. Must be different than the one in the Clark/Kimes Standard American Catalogue of American Cars book,which provided the photo and info shown at the beginning of these threads. Lets git er dun! George
  20. Ebay seller named piggletman in Apple Valley California currently is selling several White trucks from 1915-25 VERY reasonable. Plus there is an almost mint White brass radiator cheap on Ebay right now. Good Luck! George Albright
  21. THANKS for 2 great leads! You will see they were built in the mid/late 40s. I am all but certain mine was built in the mid 30s. Remember we probably have a 1928-31 Packard chassis under it. Yes I realize that could have also been acquired in the 40s from a junkyard. However every indication we have is that it is a 1930s vehicle. THANKS guys for digging!! George
  22. That would be great! I also have Barbara Thompson at the NAHC working on it. Finally I sent an email with the info and photos to automotive expert David Cole at the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor,and spoke with,and emailed info to William A. "Bill" Luke,expert on vintage buses and author of many books on buses. He is in Spokane,Wash. ONWARD! George
  23. Dear Guys Thanks for the Twin Coach Idea-I will contact the Kent State Univ. and have them check their literature. I will also post on the Packard website. I do not know the wheelbase,as the car is still in Grand Rapids Mich. I think it is around 20 feet long overall,so the frame,if Packard,would have been lengthened. To some of the other posters,yes I am aware of its association with Mr. Hariss of Dertoit. He put the Stanley Steamer engine in it,but he did NOT build the car. It was built in some car or bus factory or design shop or studio,probably in Detroit. There is no way an individual hand built this steel body,and finished the interior,door panels,etc. It could have been built with a Packard straight 8 turned backwards,or a 1930s gas or diesel bus engine and transaxle. Or it may have been just a rolling display piece with no engine,until Mr. Hariss acquired it in the late 30s or early 40s and installed the Stanley engine.If you guys have some Popular Mechanics and Automotive Trade Journal magazines or truck and bus trade magazines from 1930-42 era,please check them out for me. Somewhere there must be info on this car at a show! Thanks,George Albright PS Several threads up is a hyperlink to the Ebay auction which I bought the car from,with around 15 more photos. Please look at the interior quality,the custom dash with Packard gauges,etc.
  24. PS Spoke with the NAHC dept. at Detroit Publi Library today and same with the Gilmore Museum in Hickory Corners,Mich. Sent both of them the photos and info from the Ebay auction. They are on it-hopefully they will find something. Will keep you guys posted. Any other literature collections that should be contacted? Geo.
  25. Thanks for those nice words. The first order of business is to thoroughly research it,and uncover its unknown past,for it to travel with the car. Research is half the fun of owning an old car! Then we'll decide what if any motor was original to it,and try to repower it as near as original. Geo.
