  1. Thanks for extra info, I will log your details for future reference.
  2. Can you tell me more regarding your "almost complete engine", is if Dodge DC8 or Chrysler CD8, does it run, what's missing, what are you asking as a price, is clutch/clutch fork included?
  3. I have spoken past week with the nice gentleman who is interested in selling it as a sedan project versus a donor car. Would like to buy it anyway as a future project if it was closer. It needs a lot of work to restore to a driver standard, but not a lot of these cars around. I may get back to him again at some point. Thanks for letting me know.
  4. Thanks for the offer on Engine, I have one lined up closer to home, but it is not complete either, will keep yours in mind over next few months. Before I lay out dough for the pieces missing, I'll need to know I can get most of everything I need for an end to end drivetrain.
  5. This '31 CD8 Roadster was found weathered and stripped of all its spare parts in a scrap yard in 1950. A keen guy modified it with a V8Caddy/LaSalle/Auburn drivetrain, restored the body and he and 2 subsequent owners drove it until it went into hiding (and deteriorating again) in 1970. This photo shows it at a car show in April 1966. You will note it has same non-matching bumper it has today, which I think is from a '35 International Truck. I have the non-original C/L/A drivetrain as a second option. Body is in rough shape but restoreable again. It was built in May 1931 in Windsor Ontarion Canada, serial # 9820125, body # CD1457R.
  6. Recently found a 1931 Chrysler CD8 Roadster, missing all original bright work, drive train and wheels. Would like to bring it back to original if pieces can be found. Anyone out there have a parts pile for such a rare car? Would consider taking a complete but rough CD8 "donor car" of any model in $5K-$7K range.
  7. just purchased a rare '31 Chrysler CD8 Roadster which had been barned 40+ years ago, stripped, painted all over with red oxide, and left untouched last 30+ years. anyonje have spare parts for this, drivetrain, all lights (head,tail,cowl), 6 wire wheels, F/R bumpers, miscellaneous trim? Car was "rodded" in the 1950's, classic '48 Cadillac V8, LaSalle Tranny, Auburn rear end, steel wheels, 15" on front, 16" on rear, oddball headlights and bumpers. Have not yet decided if I will restore (at a cost of $30K-$50K) or return to '50's era rod appearance (perhaps cost of $10K-$20K).
  8. There is an rare and fine "Autoreelight" for sale on eBay. These were first available as an after market service/emergency light in late teens-early 20's and fitted to many early Ford, Chevrolet and Dodge cars. <input id="gwProxy" type="hidden"><!--Session data--><input onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" type="hidden">
  9. I see a rare circa 1940 Packard Road and Fog Lamp/Light for sale on eBay closes soon for anyone looking for one of these. <input id="gwProxy" type="hidden"><!--Session data--><input onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" type="hidden"><input id="gwProxy" type="hidden"><!--Session data--><input onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" type="hidden">
  10. I am not paid member so not sure I can post a new thread, so am using this one to let members know of a recent barn find of an early teen's Studebaker I found in an outbuilding in Halifax NS Canada. Owner says its a 1916 tourer, drivetrain looks complete and owner (he's 91) says he has had big engine running recently. Wheels are also in decent shape, but touring body/frame pretty rusty and rough. Bows for roof are there. Not sure if he would sell it as he is a bit eccentric (has several old '20's Fords, a '29 Dodge and '48 Packard as well). Amazing these old beasts keep showing up! <input id="gwProxy" type="hidden"><!--Session data--><input onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" type="hidden">
  11. I see circa '39-40 Packard road and fog lamp/light for sale on eBay, closes tomorrow.
