  1. Tiltray GL-193 is the original number and was converted to 912185 in newer listings. It fits 29-30 Marquette, 29 Pontiac, 29 Peerless and some 30 Pontiac models.
  2. This is a great car show on February 17 in Clearwater which is close to Tampa. Lots of cars and a nice setting. https://www.rutheckerdhall.com/cruisin
  3. For 1925, I understand that the early Chevrolet Superior K series and had no headlight mounting bar and the later ones had a tubular headlight mounting bar. The change was about August 1, 1925 for US produced cars.
  4. I think it is a 1925 since I can't see outside door handles which were introduced in 1926 (in North America).
  5. I'd like to purchase the radio head and box. It is for a 1937 Chevy and is correct for the car I am restoring. Please reply to me by private message. Thanks Tom Burtch
  6. 1918472 is the number of the cast iron housing. It was used on starter number 1107982. Originally there would have been a tag on the starter body with the starter number. I believe this starter was only on 1951 Oldsmobiles.
  7. These look like replacement lenses (no script) and Ottawa was one of the aftermarket lens manufacturers. The original lenses for 1929-30 Pontiac and Marquette were Tiltray number 912185. These lenses have flat faces and locating nubs on the bottom as shown in your photo. The size listed for the Tiltray lens is 9 7/16 OD x 8 31/32 prism, but I have also seen 8 15/16 marked in the glass rim as the prism diameter. Aftermarket replacement lenses generally have very little market value. I have good used Tiltray lenses for sale if you need them. Tom
  8. Mounts on bottom are not correct for 1933-34 Chevrolet. Looks like the mounts used by Chrysler products of about 1932-34. May be 1932 Dodge as I think it used a convex Twilite lens that was close to the one used by Chevrolet.
  9. I'm interested. Will send private message. Tom
  10. I'll buy the "1930 Standard Practices for Assembly plants and Warehouses - Inventory Control" book if you still have it. I'll send a private message with my contact information. Tom
  11. Looks like 33-34 Chrysler or Imperial. There should be a part number cast in the lip which will confirm the application.
  12. That is the correct part number (group 5.555) for the universal joint yoke used on 1937-39 Chevy cars. It also looks like it is the right part. Tom
  13. Chevrolet did not use Guide Ray lenses. This style of Guide Ray headlight was common in truck or bus applications in the 1920's era.
  14. 835501 is the casting number for 1929-30 Chevrolet engine blocks. This should be a six cylinder engines with an updraft Carter carb. K178 is the month/day/year code for the date the block was cast. I don't know if GM used the letter I in the month sequence, so the K would either signify October or November. The block was produced in late 1928 for the 1929 model year. The stamped number is the engine serial number. I believe truck engines had a "T" prefix to the serial number so the engine you have may not be original to your truck. For reference, the four cylinder engine block casting number used in 1928 is 348532. Tom
  15. Casting number indicates 1931 Chevrolet. The date sequence is month, day, year, so was cast June 26, 1931.
  16. I'll buy the 1938 edition if you still have it.
  17. This housing is about 4 ¾ inches in overall diameter and is mounted to a stand by three bolts that are around the electrical connector plug. The STAUB marking should identify the application but I don’t see this listing in my reference materials. I have found on-line information which indicates this light was used for 1929 Hupmobiles, but I’m not sure. This housing is uniformly round with no styling line at the top. I thought that Hupmobiles in about 1929-30 used a styling point at the top of the rims which carried back to a slight ridge on the top of the bodies for both headlights and taillights. Does anyone recognize the STAUB code and know the application? Thanks, Tom
  18. I have listed these for sale and included pictures in the Buy/Sell forum. I'd still appreciate any insight on the original application(s) if these were original equipment lights. Thanks Tom
  19. Pair of early electric cowl lamps. Model 1334 by The Saxon Manufacturing Company of Toledo Ohio. Saxon was a major supplier of automobile lights and horns and this is a good set of right and left side lamps in the style used on late 1910s or 1920s era vehicles. These have painted steel bodies and nickel? plated rims. Approximately 6 inches overall diameter across the rims and 4 ¾ inches long. They will need restoration but the bodies are not damaged and the lights appear to be complete and in good condition except for the following: one rim has some dents but no cracks and can be straightened, one of the convex lenses is cracked and one of the hinge pins is missing. $50 for the pair, plus shipping. If not sold before, these will at the swap meet at the Winter Florida AutoFest (hosted by Carlisle Events) in Lakeland FL on February 23-26 along with many other pre-1939 lights. Please stop by and say hello. I’ll be at spaces GC12 & GC13. Tom
  20. Thanks for the reply. I didn't get a chance to take photos yesterday but cleaned them up and found the manufacturer's name and model number so thought someone might have an old listing. I'll take photos and post them this evening in the for sale section. I know Saxon was a supplier of horns and lights but I'm not sure if these are generic or specific to any vehicle. Tom
  21. Anyone know the original application for #1334 cowl lights by The Saxon Manufacturing Company, Toledo Ohio? These are early electric lamps, about 6 inches overall diameter likely from late teens era.
  22. Thanks for the comments. It should clean up nicely and will at least enjoy it as an interesting display item for my workshop. Tom
  23. This brass horn is about 5.75 inches from face of the front opening to the flat rear side of the mounting bracket. The front opening is round and about 6 inches O.D. The stamp on the horn indicates that it was made by VOLIER & FILS, PARIS and the model is COURRIER 910. The horn also has a paper tag with hand written note indicating 1910 Buick Model F, but I don’t think this is the correct application (let me know). This horn could have been on a European vehicle (since it was made by a company in Paris) although I found by a Google search that Pierce Arrow used Volier & Fils horns (model 810 Dragon) on the Great Arrow cars, so it may have been from a US vehicle. Thanks for any input on the original application.
  24. Thanks for the quick ID. Looks like the '24 Studebaker is right.
  25. I'd like to identify the applications for these lamps. It looks like both are for the same side of the vehicle by the pattern of the glass placement. The rectangular bodies are about 3.25" high (including the "chimney"), 2 .75" wide and 2.00" deep. Overall height from the base of the bracket to top of chimney is 6.25" The clear glass is nicely bevel cut and is about 2.25" square on the side panel and 2.25 x 1.75 on the front panel. There are no manufacturer markings, but a hand written tape label on one reads "A. Keltner parking lite". I expect that this refers to an owner's name rather than a vehicle, but not sure. The bottom of one body has number 102083 written by hand using a marking pen. They are well made and I would guess they date from mid teens based on the electric bulb sockets and the decorative chimney on top. Does anyone recognize these? Tom
