  1. The Marmon restoration is still not complete, new painting, top and upholstery is planned for this year. Fenders will go black. The Chysler is in good shape. I think the Marmon has a more imposing front. Julio
  2. Reading recently some books about history of the events back in 1930, when the president was deposed, I realized the car was not from the cardinal archbishop, it was the presidencial automobile. Searching the illustrated magazines available in 1920s and 1930s, where there was good coverage of official events, gave more information. In a Navy ceremony, late in 1927, a presidencial closed car showed up. The radiator shell, hood and front bumper are quite unique combination for Lincoln. Some picture books of early Lincoln’s helped to define the year. Headlights in 1927 are different from previous years. It was not exactly a specific research. I enjoy history, and 1920s cars, during the years, many pieces of the puzzle were naturally being laid, and yesterday, reading about the local history, I remembered the newspaper picture and all dots connected at once!
  3. Marmon had 4 models, all 8 cyl, in 1930: - entry level Rosevelt - 69 - 79 ( Matt’s car) - Big Eight (CCCA full classic) I believe the Chrysler Imperial was the full classic for 1930. Marmon were priced higher than equivalent Chrysler models. I own a 1929 Chrysler 75 (6 cyl) roadster and 1929 Marmon 78 (8cyl), touring speedster, and I prefer the Marmon. I recognize my Chrysler has a more modern look and hydraulic brakes, when compared to Marmon, but owning and driving both, i prefer the Marmon. Julio
  4. Finally solved the mystery, it is a 1927 Lincoln!

I found this 20” one at ebay (link below), seems to be right, but I would like to have opinions from Studebaker experts. Please share your views.

  14. I tried the email above, but it was rejected by the server, do you have other contact info for her? I would like to buy a pair of saddles for my Chrysler 75. Thanks, Julio
  15. Thanks, Dale. I sent you a private message, maybe it would be better communicate directly in my email julioalbernaz@hotmail.com regards Julio
  16. Thanks, Narve. Do you have the contact from the seller? I am interested to buy a pair of saddles, my car outer bars have those holes. Model 75 bars may be shorter due to that additional front lid the rumble seat has, but based on your picture they seem to be very similar. Thanks, Julio Albernaz
  17. Hi Narve, I own a 1929 Chrysler model 75 roadster. Do you know if they are the same of model 65. My car has all top rest bars, but with no clip on support I can see on the botton left of your picture. Do you have A picture of complete set in the car? Do you sell just the clipon saddle? How do they fit to the bars? Tks, Julio
