  1. alsancle: It is a town car but it has an opening rear quarter. It is supposed to be by Lebaron but the body builder plates are missing. I have found the experts on this car but I'm still open to information, particularly about Lebaron bodies in this period.
  2. George: Thank you for the quick post. Unfortunately, I cannot share the exact car publicly at this time. It will come out in the next year or two.

I'm hoping that some collector, library, archive or club has records or correspondence related to Graham-Paige in 1929 that may shed some light on the specific car I'm researching.

The cylinder head appears to have some broken cooling fins, not a problem if you want to get it running but would require a replacement cylinder head

  6. This Flyer is one of the most complete and original Flyers I have found in 40 years of playing with these. The buckboard serial number, 2069, corresponds to cars sold in June 1923. The factory records do not record every Flyer sold after 1922, so this one is not specifically mentioned but it falls in between numbers shipped during that month. Metal parts are in excellent condition including original wheels with good hard rubber tires. Wood was remanufactured at some time but is in very good condition. Amazingly complete including original buckboard serial number plate (almost always miss

  9. Thank you Al I've already contacted them but still waiting for a reply. The Simeone Foundation Museum has already committed their Flyer. Hope to see you in May.
