  1. Kanter Auto Products has a lot of that kind of thing. Call them in New Jersey.
  2. Interesting information. ChuDwah. Thanks. As far as I recall, there was no screen or spark arrestor like this. I THINK I recall just removing the cap, and staring down into the gasoline, looking for debris. But I was a young apprentice sheet metal worker at the time...so that means it was...Oh, wow...well over 40 years ago!!!!!
  3. Many years ago I bought a cheap, older-restoration 1930 Model A tudor. I decided it would be fun to drive to work every day. But the darn thing would be running down the road and suddenly stall, for lack of fuel. Pull over to side of the road, pull gas cap to check, and it would start right back up. Ah, HA! I thought it must be the legendary "gas-cap/radiator-cap been swapped" problem we've all heard about. But even with the gas cap off the entire time, it kept happening. There was some kind of blockage. So I put the carb-end of the fuel line inside a 2-liter soda pop bottle, wrapped a rag aro
  4. My GUESS is that it was a pretty good price, IF there were no hidden disasters in there anywhere. If I had garage space and some interest in a pretty darn cool roadster just then, I would simply have gotten in my truck and driven there immediately. I've done it before, and had some great adventures along the way. Often I turned down the car in question, but enjoyed the trip anyway. Other times, I came home with a car which I was very glad to have.
  5. Thanks for the replies. Maybe someday these can be identified. And if so, I'll bet that somewhere, there is someone who would be really glad to have them!
  6. I recently bought the remnants of a 24 Hupmobile from an estate. Now I am learning that some of the parts I got weren't Hupp at all. It would be great if I could sell some of those pieces, to help recoup the costs of the Hupp parts & the related adventure. Anyway, I THINK the part in question this time is a shifter column for a 3-on-the-tree manual transmission. And I noticed some older Chevy 6 cylinder engines lying around in that old garage when I was there, so maybe this is out of an older Chevy truck? Please, anyone, if you can help, let me know what I have he
  7. Looks like a gas cap for a 1971 to 1973 AMC Hornet to me.
  8. I just clicked on the link, and saw it listed as "SOLD."
  9. Wait! Is that John Wayne at left, on the horse? LOL
  10. I recently went to South Carolina and bought a 1924 Hupmobile chassis with engine, transmission, driveshaft, rear axle assy, and miscellaneous parts. In the pile of Hupp part were also some other items, and I'm asking for your help to identify them, please. First up is a chrome-strip/center hinge section for a 4 piece hood. Looks like a truck of the late forties to me...and I recall that there were some old Chevy straight six engines in the same garage. Does anyone recognize this thing?
  11. Wow, awesome early muscle! I've never even heard of one of these with a 4-speed. I'll bet these things were real sleepers. Thanks so much for sharing, and for the bonus information!
  12. I bought a tray of small parts at an automotive swap meet, not long ago. This interesting little oiler was in the tray. I ASSUME it is not automotive. But it is sort of old, so before I scrap it...does anyone recognize it, per chance? (sure wish that tag was at least partially legible!) Thanks again, gang. You folks are my heroes.
  13. For myself, I have guessed at exhaust pipe hangers, and lamp brackets. What do you folks think?
  14. Hello all. Like many of you, I have cool older items laying around that I'm not sure what they are for, but they are too nice to throw away. I've had this pair of brackets for decades. I took them to Hershey a few times, and put them on display (among other unknown items), with signs saying, "What am I?" That tactic worked well, and I was able to ID many items. But these two brackets have stumped me. Yet they are STILL too nice to discard. The u-bolt circle seems to be just 1.5" (3.81 cm). For the record, I got them from an old auto repair garage in Three Rivers, Mass
  15. Never had much experience with a Renault Dauphine. But a high school friend had the newer "econo" model, the Renault 10, as I recall. The local dealer ran TV ads offering them brand new for $50 down, and $50 per month. I rode in his car often (better than walking a mile home from school), but even though he generally kept the pedal glued to the floorboards, it still wouldn't keep up with a good Toro self-propelled mower. LOL. As I recall, the Renault 10 cars in our area were known to be problematic, and within about 2-3 years of service, I never saw one of them on the road again.
