  1. Hey Mark, this is Drew Talbott. I went up there a few weeks ago to take the whole collection of parts and such from Jim. I was about 5 hours from him, called him and he said that his health was going down hill fast and said not to come up here, so i turned around and went back home. Do you know the state of his health and if he still has everything up there? Thanks! Drew
  2. Hey everyone, i am looking for parts for my 1916 Ford Model T project that I am working on. Currently i have a frame, rear end, front end, and some other parts. I am needing a steering column, an engine ( assembled together or a block), wheels, etc. I am not sure what i want to do for a body, but i am open to offers as to what might be out there. I thought about making a delivery type truck or a speedster. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you all for your help in advance! Drew Talbott
  3. Oh really? EGGE has those parts? Thats great to hear! Thanks for the lead on parts. I was having trouble finding those parts because the truck is so rare, yet it has the Pontiac Splithead Six engine in it. I will make sure to look online there and get the parts we need. Thanks again!
  4. Hey i have access to Manganese Bronze/Yellow Brass Step Plates that are made for Early REO that are fastened to angle iron. They might be what you are looking for. I am asking $125 each plus shipping. Please let me know if you are interested. I can also get you pictures of them if you are interested. You can email me at dtalbott13@gmail.com Thanks. Drew
  5. Hey everyone, i am looking for parts for an early Curve Dash Olds Automobile that my friend and i are working on. We are in need of the front axle, springs, front knuckles, and the rear pumpkin. We have a decent start for the car, but we need some parts to make it a roller. I know these cars are becoming harder to find, especially parts for the cars, but we would really appreciate it if anyone could help us as to where we can find the needed parts. Thank you all for your time. Drew Talbott
  6. Hey everyone, I am looking for any possible leads on parts, gaskets and any additional information for 1932 GMC T-19 Truck with the Pontiac Split Head Six Engine.. My friend and I are working on this truck for a customer and we are in need of parts. This truck was offered with a Pontiac Split Head Six Cylinder Engine. These trucks are pretty rare and we are having a tough time finding really anything about these trucks. If any of you Fellow Pontiac Owners know of any parts, gaskets or any other information, please let me know. You can directly email me at dtalbott13@gmail.com. Thanks again. Drew Talbott.

  8. Ok thanks guys. I will dig it out and write down everything you have told me to look for.
  9. Hey fellow Franklin Members, my name is Drew Talbott. I am a recent graduate of McPherson College's 4 year Bachelors degree program. I had the great enjoyment and pride of working on our 1928 Franklin 12B 7 Passenger Airman Sedan for my senior project. So far last year, I ended up sorting through the parts and trying to organize them in a better fashion so that future students could find parts easier. I wrote up a log of every part I could find that was part of the car which for some reason isn't with the car currently.... anyways, I also managed to figure out what our running boards are a little bent and requires a piece of angle iron to hold them straight. I also managed to get all of the doors and the rear fenders in primer. My main projects and goals were to fabricate the drivers side wheel well for the spare tire, and fabricate the driver side lower hood as there was neglect and misdirection from previous students that tried to fix the problems through other means and just made things worse. Anyway, I started working on the wheel well and started forming it. About halfway through the year, things started going down hill and I became very stressed. The more I came into the shop, the less I got finished. So long story short, I managed to get my first goal of organizing the parts on the parts rack finished, however I came up short with fabricating the wheel well and hood piece. I wish I could have finished those pieces as I wanted to see the body, doors, hood, and fenders all in paint as I wanted to achieve something great in college. Things happen and plans change, I just wish I could have gotten farther. Anyways, I figure I would let the club know of the current progress of the project so you could get an idea. Unfortunately, I feel I should share this with the Franklin Club that I have been given the task to start packing up the project and moving it to our storage facility as there isn't any interest in the project currently and we need the room for other projects. I have been deemed the expert on Franklin Automobiles in the School and as such I will take on the project to get it back together and move it to the storage facility unfortunately. In all of the craziness of my life, personal troubles and tribulations, I have learned a lot about these truly amazing automobiles and will continue to learn about them. I would love to own one like this one day. Actually if the time came up, I would purchase our schools project in a heart beat and finish restoring this fine automobile myself. I hope this information has helped you all in keeping up on the project and keeping tabs on its whereabouts.... If anyone would like to reach me about the project or just want to talk as I would love to talk with some of you and pick your brains on not only this automobile but others and the company, feel free to call me on my cell phone at (574)-315-0445, or you can email me at dtalbott13@gmail.com. I will also be at Hershey this year on red field spots RWO 20-23. With Warm Regards, Drew Talbott, 2013 Spring McPherson College Grad
  10. Hey Caddyshack, I may be a 22 year old college student that just graduated with a Bachelors degree in Automotive Restoration Technology, and because I am so young I may not know much because of my young age, but I do know a few things. One of the most important things I have learned is keep in mind that these cars are original only once, and of course I am sure you know that. It sounds like a pretty awesome automobile. Does it run by chance? Somewhere I have looked for prices for cars is in the price guides. Maybe this will help, maybe not. I hope you find the value of your beautiful and amazing Horseless Carriage Automobile, and I wish you the best of luck with the future of this automobile up in the air.

  11. Hey everyone, Drew Talbott here. So I have recently come across a frame that I think is pretty cool and unique, but I do not know what it is. Heres what I do know: 1. The Frame is at least 15 feet long. 2. It has running boards. 3. The Front frame horns curve down slightly to connect to the springs which are half elliptical. 4. The Front frame has spindles and currently has a wagon style arm on the front which lets me to believe that it was used as a wagon at a later time. 5. The frame is a bit of a weird design that I have never seen before nor really recognized. 6. The Rear frame is connected to a set of three quarter elliptical springs which has me scratching my head. 7. The Rear axle was turned around and a cover was installed on it which also leaves me to believe that it was used as a wagon later on in its life. Below are the pictures of the frame as It sat before I removed if from the falling apart shed it was in. I would like the help of everyone on the forum to see if we can figure out what this frame might be, and what year around it could be. I would sure appreciate it. Also in the pictures below, I also found a trunk that I have a better knowledge of being around the times of mid 20's to early 30's. I would also like to see if we could identify this as well, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks everyone. Drew P.S. I do apologize about the bad pictures.
  12. I would love to buy that whole complex if I had the money! I am so in love with Packards and yet it really tears me apart as well as others I am sure to see this once great companies old plant sit in ruins........
  13. Hey are those guys looking to sell any current projects or parts? I have recently acquired a one cylinder REO project and I am actively seeking parts. If you have any information on parts, it would be greatly appreciated! I also hope the Southern Western Oregon 1 and 2 Cylinder Tour went well. I cannot wait to get my REO project together, restored and get on some tours. Thanks again! Drew
  14. Hey Keiser31, hows it going? What all are you needing for rear axle? Is it just the housing case pieces or one? Would you mind sending me a few pictures of the rear axle at dtalbott13@gmail.com. I might know of a guy that might have the parts your looking for. Talk to you soon. Drew
  15. Hey MorrisGarage, ill ask my grandfather if knows of one for sale as he is one of the most knowledgable guys on early REO automobiles. What condition are you looking for? Also price?
