  1. Plymouths are very reliable cars. Last forever, always in a discrete way.
  2. The model 75 roadster is a great car, I enjoy a lot driving mine! I hope you find a good one!
  3. Some pictures from Lincoln Photo Archive. 1923 Brunn and 1927 Judkins coach work. Sorry for bad position of pictures.
  4. www.aaca.org www.hemmings.com Thanks also to ebay.com , best place to buy “very hard to find parts”.
  5. Still no references of internal door panels. The original factory picture reproduced above was taken at the 1926 New York Salon Show, of a 4-passengers Dietrich sedan. I am sure it was widely adopted in custom coach built. JRA
  6. The picture above of the interior wicker door panel is an original factory photography from 1926 Dietrich custom body Lincoln Model L.
  7. Hello Folks, I have always admired wicker inserts of door panels in some 1920’s cars. The picture below shows the front door of 1926 Lincoln sedan. What kind of makes and body types used to have such type of inserts? When were they common? Mid to late 1920’s? I have seen external and internal finishings using wicker inserts, so I am curious about this option. Thanks JRA
  8. Any idea of detailed pictures of the 2-piece windshield shown in the first photo? It should be an option in 1926 and 1927 Big Sixes.
  9. My Chrysler 75 does not have red engine head, but based on holes and marks on the firewall, it is clear it had the part installed there in the past, that’s the reason I bought the damper.
  10. Should the firewall unit be installed directly to the metal or should I use some rubber washings or gasket?
  11. Was this system used in other cars at that time or in other periods?
  12. Hello Folks, Sometime ago I was able to buy a part was missing under the hood of my 1929 Chrysler model 75. It is a sort of "engine vibration absorber". It is an steel arm attached to a bumper at the firewall, this arm connects to a regular bolt in the engine head. I have now decided to install it, but I would like to understand how it works, why Chrysler developed such system, if there is any special actions I should take to install the part, and if it is really useful. Any ideas? In my perception the level of vibration of the engine seems to be normal. After I installed thick
  13. By the way, I used dark brown leather in seats of my 1929 Chrysler 75 roadster and dark brown leatherette in my 1928 Chevrolet touring seats. For these cars, I got manufacturers references to support my choices. Marmon data is unfortunately more scarce.
  14. Hello, I was doing some research about Upholstery materials for 1920s open cars (roadster, touring, phaeton). In general I see leather or leatherette. Regarding the Upholstery color, in general I see recent pictures of restored cars showing brown (Light or Dark) as a frequent color. Were these the options used at that time? Could Black leather a period correct material? I am restoring my 1929 Marmon touring speedster, so I would like to make the correct choice. The car has black fenders and black canvas top. Would be black the right color for the seats? thanks JRA
  15. Hi George, I think these are the correct ones. Thanks, JRA
  16. Thanks, Scott. You are totally right. I have just bought the lot. JRA
  17. Do you have 4 pieces with same format similar to original?
  18. Hi Jon, is there any significative difference between the SV14 to the SV33 ? What are they different? Thanks, JRA
  19. Hi Jon, I found one in the link below. Do you think it can fit? Thanks, JRA https://www.daytonaparts.com/m/replacement_carburetor_zenith.html
  20. Sorry for your loss, and thanks for your help. JRA
  21. Hi Jon, do you think this new Zenith updraft carburetor could be suitable, besides parade rides, for my 1926 Studebaker Big Six, EP ( 354 cu in L-head engine)? Thanks, JRA
  22. Unfortunately my car has no original latches. If I am able to buy at least one, I can try to reproduce them. Thanks
  23. I am restoring the Pemberthy SV33 ball and ball carburetor for my 1926 Studebaker Big Six, EP, and some parts are in very poor condition, pictures attached. Any suggestion how to find or reproduce such parts? Any SV33 carburetor available for sale? Thanks, JRA
  24. Hello, I am looking for hood latches/hooks for my 1926 Studebaker big six, EP. Once I am having a hard time to find them, I would like to know if there are other years with the same part, so I could interchange it. Find below a picture of an original 1926 hood latch. Anyway, if there is any available for sale, I am interested. Thanks, JRA
  25. Studebaker 4 wheel hydraulic brakes - 1925/1926: in reality a hydraulic assisted mechanical brakes system.
