  2. Hi Lynn, Should have the 33 done very soon. Mostly detail work at this point. The 36 wood work is on the back burner till then. Alan
  3. So far as I know the Book of Instructions and the service bulletins sold by LOC are about all there is. Jack Levant had the parts information. Nice car you got !
  4. Boys, thanks for this topic, caused a smile, small taste of what it is like for us old guys who play around in the pre war period.
  5. I have had many sets of wheels done by Bill Calimer, one set done by Stutzman, my vote is for Calimer, never been disappointed with his work.
  6. Thank you both for the input. Ideally I would like to find an unfinished open car. Ed I can almost fix anything, broken hearts I haven't mastered yet. (Learned that raising daughters)😉
  7. I am going to look at a Model 81 Pierce. I have seen some references to the Model 80 and 81 on this forum . Can some of the very knowledgeable tell me the good, bad ,and ugly of these cars and what is important to look for. Ideally I would like to have the larger model Pierce but there are some budget limitations. Thank you
  8. I am looking for a 1920 to 1931 . Older restoration, neglected, partly restored, apart. Wish to use as driver. Prefer roadster but any open car considered. Not interested in show car. Any help appreciated. Please PM or call John Kelso seven one seven four eight five 4344.
  9. Looking for a complete jack assembly for a 1960 Ford. Thanks
  10. Sent a package to my son in Baltimore, 100 miles away, 2 weeks and he still doesn't have it. What has happened to our USPS?
  11. Funny thing I live in a rural area of Pennsylvania and we complain about the southerners moving in,guess we're all alike, Americans!
  12. I was there with my friend Carl Amsley of Stanley fame since there was a car and some parts in the sale. The car was bought by Geo. Staley and restored. I had made contact with him after the sale and subsequently did some work for him on the car. I had been there earlier and bought the remains of a 1927 Boattail . He had responded to an ad I had placed in Hemmings. On the advise of a few people I ignored the post card, I was told he'll lead you along and you will not be able to buy anything. After the second post card I responded, about a week later the phone rang at 4 AM and it was A K MIller, we talked for quite a while and came to an arrangement. A week later we were on the road, my wife and 3 kids in tow(truck bed was fitted for kids, our youngest was 1). We arrived late afternoon and met the Millers. AK suggested we disconnect the trailer and leave it, would be easier for us to get around. Next morning when we returned the trailer was stacked full of used roofing that we had to unload at another location,Mother(as he called his wife) my wife and me. After Mrs Miller fixed lunch AK then handed she and I shovels and be began moving dirt from in front of the shed where the chassis was stored. The story continued but to long for this forum, we later visited them several times at there home in New Jersey. This was late 70's. As a side note my wife and kids remind me sometimes how we never took a vacation unless there was a trailer following.
