  1. I think the driver side had no door on the bearcat, but the passenger side did. The shifter is on the outside of the door.
  2. I think it is a 1920 Stutz Roadster. Looks just like mine.
  3. EMAIL ME AT Oldcartech at Gmail . com and I will send you the pictures to your email.
  4. I am located in southern Ca. I will take some pictures and post them.
  5. are you saying Stutz never made a Blackhawk Sedan or the M series did not have a Blackhawk sedan?
  6. For sale...Stutz safety chassis worm drive rear end with hyd brks and one front end with water brks.
  7. I still need a 4 passenger Blackhawk boattail wood/aluminum body. I understand that 2 exist, and hoping one was not used, but where they are eludes me.
  8. at one time on a list I have, there were at least 25 or more Buick Truck owners in the US. I think I still have the list.
  9. Still looking for a 4 pas boattail body. prefer complete. It is for a 1927/8 long frame safety chassis.
  10. Spray some Pledge Wax on wheel and then place a plastic trash bag over the wheel but not over stem hole. Then, if the wheel is a Clincher type just put some of your weight on it at one end of the tire and follow it around. It should go real easy and then before you air the tire pull out the plastic. You can do this various ways with wax and a plastic trash bag on all types of wheels so you don’t scratch them up. Of course put a clean piece of carpet down to work on so you don’t scratch the other side up. Use a little brain power in variations and you can rule the garage. Just kidding. I learned this from my Dad 30 + years ago. Smart man.
  11. Let me correct my answer. I was in Europe just before 9/11 and I saw 3 of them ( 4 seaters) in a small German town pannelbeater. I was curious and was told all 3 were made up special at the same time for 3 gentlemen. There was a red one, a green and beige one. They were done very very well and had they not all been together at the same time, I may not have believed they were not original cars. A fourth was being made too and was at the skinning stage. The woodwork was superb. The body was perfect. The chassis were long wheel base from other models. One had a late model dual overhead cam. oone had a split valve cover, likely a 27 and the other was definetly a 29 like my 2 seat. Thus I learned real quick there are more than we know of. I recall one was going to new zealand and one to the middle east.
  12. Sorry...I have a 1927 chassis with an 8.
  13. Oops! I apologize. I was under the false impression you were talking about wire wheels. My reply post above was only meant for wire wheels. There are specially puller for the others as well and I see he got them free with one. Thanks Layden for correcting me. Rick
  14. Anywhere from $ 10,000 to $ 230,000 depending on the quality of the car. And, there are a lot more than you may think.
  15. It is possible to have the gears bronzed. I think it’s called liquid bronzing. The bronzing fills in any cracks (not bad crakes), pits and wear and depending on dipping procedures can add additional material onto the metal. Also it depends on how much wear you plan on getting in the future. The straight cut gears if not available, can be made… but then you need to broach the shaft and centers of the gear. That can be very expensive or cheap depending on the unit. Hopefully you only want this for short jaunts and not long hauls. Most of the older good machinists and heat-treat’ers know of this old process. They have probably improved it over the years. You can go into the internet and find straight cut gears to match and send a drawing, copy, and photo and or sketch so they know what the heck you are talking about.
  16. It is sometimes very hard to see, and can be tricky but there is a fine round center ring in the middle of the hub. The wrench goes around the hub with a T shaped center on a lever that fits into the center of the hub and lifts the round serrated looking center up and out just about 3/16 of an inch. Once that happens the cap is in the unlock position and you can turn the wheel cap left or right with the wrench depending on which side of the car it’s on, for direction. It can sometimes require a little friendly persuasion with some heat and liquid bolt loosened. Take your time, be extra patient and think it out. You finally get it. Be cautious and not hurt the center or the locking system. Once you get it all apart, clean the hub and lightly oil it up like you would a fine gun or watch. It also for time to time becomes necessary to use a very fine file to the serrated edges of the center ring. I sure hope I explained that right. It sounds good in my head but in someone else’s it could be kind of confusing. Rick
  17. I am looking for a Stutz Boattail body to purchase. ( wood and w/metal if possible ). I recall there were a few from Canada a few years ago. Maybe someone gave up on a project or built one and gave up and if so, I am willing to buy or do some trading. Please let me know.
