  1. closed body types - on the right front sill open body type - right front seat frame commercial - on front of dash. first one or two numbers are the factory where the vehicle was built. then two letters - BA is Confederate, ( all cars), BE - 1/2 ton truck, N with another letter is commercial trucks. Howard has a beautiful special sedan. It was the feature car on the Gettysburg Founders tour. 2018? Tom
  2. Send a picture of the pit and frame and some scale of the thickness ( original). As Mssrs capngrog and F&J said, the repair can be done but needs to be done properly. There is techniques to repair problems on members. It involves 'killing' the issue, some reweld and adding a diamond stiffener(s).
  3. Yes. Several big downpours that lasted maybe 30 minutes in the 1929 Chrysler. Making sure the window was previously treated with rainex really helped as the wiper couldn't even begin to keep up. It was exciting! Sheri and I had to close the vents, and crack open windows, windscreen and side vents as water would comein, etc. It really fogged up and on the inside - with no defroster - we just wiped the condensation away. The problem is the designs of the day - the windscreen opened up, the dash metal was formed to bring air downward- one gets pretty wet, so you close the windscreen and it
  4. I recognize Mr. Michael Hoegl in the 1913 Benz WB. Wonderful gentleman. Amazing car. Tom
  5. He was a truly gentle person. A really knowledgeable guy on technology and well-grounded in physics. I always looked for - and liked seeing - his byline. Please pass along to all our Digger friends that his Yank friends are grieving.
  6. Sheri and I look forward to seeing you and Lynn.
  7. My youngest daughter - when she was small - called it the 'bunker seat'. Taking her and her friends to the ice cream stand in the bunker seat on a hot summer evening with the lightning bugs putting on their show and smell of freshly mown grass is sublime. Them waving at all passers - the passing drivers mostly waving back. Good memories - good times.
  8. Can you send picture of the 32 horn and trumpets? 31-32 Radiator Cap , 32 Instrument Panel Decals ,’32 Special Sedan Body No. Tag ,31-32 Tail Light Assemblies and 32 bezel. Tom
  9. Edinmass, You made me smile about the LV luggage! I apologize for perpetuating gossip - I repeated what I was told - gossip. It's interesting how 'legends' start! It is making me think.... Do I like the bar lights? because they are more common? Maybe. The PAs are SO distinctive. I really liked that Cord though,and generally like Cords of the mid 30s - they look so clean but those big buckets... WOWZA! in the same vein, I just don't care for Bugattis. There is something about that grill that just doesn't 'zing' me. I like the Cadillacs a little more than Packards - a good friend
  10. While taking a fast stroll through car coral, I saw a Pierce Arrow ----- that had the headlamps not mounted in the fenders. Factory original. I've heard and read that was a very rare feature and only delivered to NY customers. It's simply a personal preference but I thought it was much 'prettier' than the fender install. Certainly the fender-installed lamps are absolutely distinctive but just not something I 'like'. That's OK. It occurred to me that it's a great thing - I'm glad not everyone likes what I do and appreciate that others like things I don't. I saw the car an
  11. I think someone said it is a 420. The 'C' would have meant crawler which it is not. Looks re-painted as it should be mostly green with some yellow highlight. I see rear wheel weights. See if www.fastline.com is in Texas. They sell farm equipment. They are out of KY but big here in the NE. Also try to reach out to the texas farm bureau - a local member might be able to steer you to the right folks. Good Luck and Best Wishes. Tom
  12. Tim, saw your car in Hemmings Classic car. Good looking.Tom
  13. Can someone point me to location to get a kingpin set for a 1929 series 75 Chrysler? also, can someone ( who has a parts catalog) tell me what other years/models may work? TIA, Tom
  14. Its the 1929 Chrysler. This only happens very rarely. When both tires hit a hard raised ridge, it occurs, like a railroad crossing perpendicular. Tire pressure is right on. Wheels are balanced. Tire wear proper - I have not yet checked caster. Wedges look OK - not cracked. King pin play seems reasonable. It is a straight axle, with leaf springs. Do most of you do your own caster measurement? I've never done it but it looks not too difficult.
