  1. Thank you Dave. Would you mind informing me of when production started and stopped on a given year? I am a little confused about it being built in Sept 25 and being considered an "early 25." I am aware that titles often reflected the year it was bought and not the model year. So if it is a 25, that's great with us, and even better that it is the original engine. The numbers of the chassis and engine were close enough for me to hope that it was possible. Another question, what books are most beneficial for us to have? I suppose the service manual, anything else? I have the "Standard Catalog of
  2. Thank you so much, Mark. I am really excited about this rebuild. We'll make a place for it this week and unload it so we can really see everything that is loaded inside. It looks mechanically complete, except for a hose. The first thing we need is tires so we can roll it around, but the wheels look to be in excellent condition. Again, thank you for the information, Dolly/Dolores
  3. I'm glad to be among other newbies. I didn't really address why I am a car lover. Having a mechanic dad is a good start, and he always loved the older model cars. After I became a teen, he would let me call the project cars mine, so I get to include a 55 Crown Vic and a 52 Lincoln Capri among the list of cars I've had. My high-school car was a 66 Fairlane GTA that kept me in speeding tickets. The next is the one I kept since 1975, my 67 Camaro. My husband was impressed with me AND my car, so he became initiated into the madness. We bought our first T 5 years ago, and it whetted our appe
  4. I recently looked at prices on the NADA Antique price guide, I remember that points cars could go as high a $28,000-30,000. Mine will never be that high, we prefer to keep it a survivor with pretty paint, but you might reconsider putting a teenager in a car with a powerful V8. At best you could see a lot of tickets coming in. Some 30+ years ago I gave my folks lots of headaches, and I cost them quite a bit of money, until they said that the next ticket was mine. Our daughter recently did the same to us.
  5. Please excuse my weird user name, I was thinking of a tow dolly and dolly is a nickname for Dolores. Newbie to this forum, but I am active on the MTFCA forum. We (my husband and I)have just bought a 26 Buick 4 dr Standard. My dad was a certified mechanic, now semi-retired, he does the mechanical on our cars. I won't list some of the roughest. 1926 T Coupe ( little bit of a basket case) 1926 Buick Standard (plenty of work, but a good start) 1927 Fordor (a good driver, only trim work left) 1939 Chevy Pickup ( likes to be shown) 1945 Willys Jeep (Air Force, ready for paint, runs good)
  6. Here is the information I have: Chassis #1408776 Engine # 1444686 I could not get the passenger door open, but I wonder if that number is the one used on the title, 1917711? Thank you, Dolores F.
  7. The car lives at our shop, I'll try to get that info tomorrow. The vin given on the title is 1917711. All help is appreciated.
  8. I will proudly post pictures of our 39 Chevy pickup and my 67 Camaro as soon as I figure out how. Looking back on my user name, I realized it might have a double meaning, I had in mind the apparatus that helps you tow a car.
  9. My husband and I are the proud new owners of a '26 Standard. I'd like to research the vin given on the title, where do I go? We have quite a few cars, a couple of Model T's, but this is our first GM pre-war. I would love to hear from someone who owns one that is the same year, or within a couple of years. We haven't had a chance yet to go over everything. The body and frame look straight and free of rust. The fenders and hopefully the running boards are inside the car. My dad was a professional mechanic, he knows how to nurse them into a start after many years. This car came to us from Oklah
