  1. I looked up the SA registration records up to 1927, but 60525 isn't listed. If you had a family name or if you knew the area or district where the car was, it may help? http://www.familytreeoz.com/search-ancestry-records.html?view=genList&id=17

    C.1925 Fuel Truck - South Australia

    I agree with them being an IHC & a Cletrac, although it looks more like a 20K Cletrac. If the photo was taken in SA, then it's likely the truck is mentioned in one of the SA car books. I'll have a look today to see if there's more info on it.

    My Grandfather on holidays in Tasmania - Twenties

    It's a Sunbeam, I think the 16HP.

    Dimensions for Rudge-Whitworth splined hubs?

    RAF hubs are referenced by the number of splines; I know there is a 48 spline, and a 49 spline. But, they made a range of sizes from the Amilcars up to the R-R. I've seen a Hotchkiss diff from the early 20's that had RAF hubs, and they were a mid-sized looking hub. It would have been one of the 2 litre cars. I was told once that RAF was actually owned by Dunlop and at some stage in the mid 20's the name on them changed from RAF to Dunlop, so I think they are the same thing. I know the hubcap spanners are the same between the two. The RAF used on the Bugattis were on some Brescias (equivalent size to a Rudge 42) and Type 30's (not sure, but possibly the same). Just about all Minervas up to about 1923-24 used RAF wheels, then changed to Rudge. The 20HP and 30HP used a size the equivalent to a Rudge 90, I'm not sure about the 16HP. A wanted advert on prewarcar may help, as I've seen RAF hubs for sale on there occasionally.

    Help IDing cars in a 1910s-1920s parking lot

    The far left car is a 1912? Peerless. Next to the Hupmobile is a Winton, 1913?

    Mystery truck 1930s

    I think it's a Federal, built sometime between 1929-32, except I can't tell exactly what size it is. It's similar to this one:

    Early motor identity

    Whatever it is, it's very early and looks to still have its timer in place. The mounting base looks to be purpose-built for the engine, so perhaps a stationary engine application? It's reminiscent of the Daimler Grandfather Clock engines and possibly dates from around or just after that period, although the spark plug fitment would place it in the early 1900 era. Unless that spark plug mounting is a later fitment and it may have had an ignitor originally? That's a very nice engine, and one I'd like to very much own.

    Can you ID this please?

    This is a 1904 L Model Rambler.

    German photo: Is this a Horch... or?

    Thank you both for the kind words. I'm more inclined to go for prize (2), --unfortunately, I'll have to decline, as none of those actresses are in the 50+ category.

    Trying to figure out what this car is

    OK, although I don't think that's what he meant. Otherwise, he wouldn't have said anything at all. He would have said something like 'very interesting', 'I like it' etc..

    Trying to figure out what this car is

    I think we're coming off the same page here. I know it's not a valuable vehicle as is, but could become a valued treasure once looked after.

    Trying to figure out what this car is

    Well, I think it's interesting, even if you disagree. The fact it's an American made vehicle 10,000 miles from where it was built, in the middle of literally nowhere has interest to me, and I'm sure others would as well.

    Trying to figure out what this car is

    I found this article online about Queen Elizabeth's Chevrolet. I'm not sure if it's 1966-67-68? or an Impala? I really don't know for sure. I doubt if many, or any pillar-less four doors were sold by GM-Holden at the time, so this car may have been sourced from South Africa. The RHD, 6 cylinder engine and manual gearbox fit in with what GM-Holden would have sold, however, they may have sold the same in S-A. What viv w said about the Original Post car being a South African sourced vehicle (Chevrolet) sounds more plausible. A photo from the rear would tell if it's a Premier or a Statesman. https://en.sun.mv/44234

    K.R. Wilson V127 Tool Application?

    Does someone know what the KRW V127 tool is for? I'm guessing it's made for a side-valve V8 Ford era vehicle. The two sockets are 1-1/16" A/F and 1-1/8" A/F.
