  1. Anyone familiar with how the spare tire on a 1941 Ford one ton panel truck is attached underneath the rear cargo area? I am sure it hangs underneath the rear wood deck and is held in place some way or another, but ours doesn't have any attaching hardware. Also, if a one ton truck came with a clock or radio, which ones would be appropriate? Anyone have an under radiator splash shield in good shape they want to sell? Thanks, Michael mpatris@pacbell.net
  2. Corbin locks were used for all types of applications from automobiles to homes and industry. I would not be suprised if this were an early type of bicycle lock. Good luck!
  3. I agree it appears to be Graham... cannot verify the year, but I believe Leif is correct. Perhaps there is a Graham club that could be contacted or a Graham Club member... just to be sure. Best wishes~
  4. Attached are six mystery cars... we are trying to id the year, make and model of each. Three of the easier ones are the Ajax roadster (what model and year is it?), the Franklin (what model and year?) and the Hudson (what model and year?) plus the other three cars... thanks so much for all your help! We are thinking they are all either manufacturer photos or dealer photos, but all nonetheless professionally shot. We will be curious to hear if these are common publicity photos or something else. Thanks again for your assistance.
  5. Hello Larry, thanks so much for the input! You nailed this one right on the head! I gave you a special thanks on our PERYHS.org website and our mountlowe.org website with both images together for the folks to see the comparison of the vehicles side by side. Best wishes, Michael
  6. Attached is a mystery truck that was used in the dismantling of the Mount Lowe Railway in the San Gabriel Mountains above Pasadena, California. I want to think it is a GM product, but am not that familiar with these. Is anyone able to ascertain the year, make and model of this truck and does anyone believe the wheels are original to the chassis? Apparently the truck has been cut down and modified from the original, but we would appreciate any help. Also, if you know of an image of a complete truck which this one might have looked like when it was new, that would be a great help as well. Best w
  7. Very cool truck you have there. Are you going to keep it original or modify it? Yes, these larger trucks often got scrapped. We are lucky to have some to preserve. Best wishes, Michael
  8. Thanks so much for the contact. Just this past week we had our truck taken to a shop to begin evaluation. It appears the truck is a one ton with a 134" wheelbase and one of only approximately 600 vehicles produced. We have some additional info which suggests it was a former parts truck for what was then called Harlan Loud Ford in Pasadena. It was gray and has such low miles the mechanic believes the rear brake pads are the original ones to the truck and none of the brake drums have ever been turned. We do plan on getting this truck running and have accumulated what we believe to be most of the
  9. Thanks so much for the information... I believe they are straight, but I will recheck when I go back to the building. Any idea as far as value goes?? Thanks again, Michael
  10. Here is a pair of heads I have been told are possibly off an early 4 cylinder Buick, 1915 or earlier. The casting numbers are DR 15 15792-3 and DR 22 15792-4. The bore is tapered on the bottom where the heads bolt to the engine block at about 3-7/8”, but after the taper it appears the bore is 3-3/4” which I understand is a typical Buick size. I would like to ascertain what they might be from and approximate value. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance, Michael
  11. Who would be the authority or source to verify the casting numbers. I agree it is most likely a 3 3/4" bore. Any idea of approximate value of such a thing?? Thanks, Michael
  12. Very interesting in that the casting numbers are different. One is DR 15 15792-3 and the other is DR 22 15792-4 The bore opening is tapered, but at the bottom of the head it is about 3 7/8" or very close to 4" where it bolts to the block.... any thoughts?? Thanks, Michael

  14. Hi Mark, Thanks for the reply.... I will have to measure them when I go back to the garage tomorrow... I will post the diameter. Apparently you are the "GO TO" Buick guy seeing you lovely list of Buicks... Good for you! Talk with you soon, after a quick measurement.... Michael
