  1. I am looking for a 1949 Chevrolet convertible in any condition except too rusty. Will look at projects as well as nice cars.
  2. I am looking for a GMC 302 inline engine. Can be a Military one or not. I am South of Chicago. Thank You
  3. I just bought whats left of a 1915 (shipped from factory 7/14) American LaFrance 6 cylinder fire truck. It has a conventional rear axle and iron wheels. I would like to build a speedster with chain drive. I am looking for any drivetrain pieces I need convert it.

  5. I am looking for and Auburn project. It wouldn't matter if it was rough or just a chassis.
  6. I got this in a trade. I would like to know what model it is. I am not exactly sure what year it is either. The title says 1919 but I believe it is newer than that. It has an all metal structure inside the body. It is in pretty good shape sheet metal wise. The four cylinder looks real clean inside like someone has been in there but I haven't looked real close. What you see is what I have of it. I am not sure what I am going to do with it. I am not sure what it is worth if I was to sell it. I would be interested in buying rear fenders, aprons, and running boards for it. Thank You
  7. I am looking for a 1950 or later 320 Straight 8 engine that is complete. I am South of Chicago. The closer the better but I will drive for the right deal. Thank You
  8. I assumed they were made before 1905. I had always heard stories how the Schauer Brothers built the first car in Budsin Wisconsin. I can remember Grandpa telling me that story many times. I don't remember him ever making reference to having parts of it. But, I was only ten years old when he passed. I don't remember if it was Grandma or Her cousin who was friends with Grandpa that told me those parts were from the Schauer Brothers car. I just assumed that was correct and never chased the story any further. Years later a newspaper article had a picture of the Schauers in the car they built in 1907. It is obvious the parts I have were not from this car. Or at least not in 1907. My Grandfather liked gas and steam stuff and he wasn't born until 1909. So how he acquired it or how it made it through the scrap drives is a mystery.
  9. I got these from my Grandpas garage who passed away Thirty years ago. I have a second hand background story. But, it doesn't all make sense. The only thing I can find close is Westfield Automobile Parts made by The C. J. Moore Mfg. Co. I read that some other company's used those components to build finished cars or you could buy a running gear from them. Does anyone have any ideas?
  10. I certainly would appreciate any help in finding these.
