    Will pay big $$$$$, pre war Midget wire wheels needed

    Greg, Thanks for the help. I will send you pictures of the wheels. I do believe that the hubs are the same as std Dayton wire wheels Can you email me at motorcarinvestments@gmail.com Can send them and others via my picasa. Yes, I have heard and read about the guy, think it was a Hemming's article, or maybe Hemming's classic car magazine>? Thanks in advance, Thanks in Advance, John Nebo Illinois
  2. Guys, Hard order to fill, BUT somebody has to have some. The Midget race cars back in the pre war era had Dayton made 12 inch diameter wire wheels. I need 5 of them for the 1935 Harris fwd Speedster. I would literally buy a complete Midget racer if it had these wheels. Wheels can be rough, I just need some. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Also wanted, >>>>>>>>> Montgomery Wards racing dirt track tires>>>>>>>>>>>> ANY condition considered. I missed one on Ebay about one year ago. Thanks in advance, John please email motorcarinvestments@gmail.com

    Keiser 31, That's a good idea, might as well use every option. I am actually a member there, but have not logged in at the site for 4 or 5 years. But hey, worth a try. The parts I am looking for are definitely not common in the market place. Thanks John

    1936 zephyr tail lights, whole or parts, needed

    Larry, I was looking in the wrong place. I thought you meant here in AACA. I was looking in the wrong site. Thanks for setting me straight. I sent the guy an email, he is in the UK. No big deal though, as it can be shipped over the pond, as they say !! Thanks again, this is what makes AACA such a great club !!!!! John

    1936 zephyr tail lights, whole or parts, needed

    RAY 500, Thanks for the reply. Yes, very hard to find now days, but needed for the futuristic Harris Speedster. Yes again, Boos Harrel did sell me some extra parts, 5-6 years ago, hell of a nice guy, straight forward and honest. I do check ebay often for the tail lights, or parts. ONE good thing, I do have extra parts for the 36 zephyr tail lights to trade off. Searching for a reasonably priced STARTIX also. 12 inch diameter Midget racing wire wheels from the late 1920's >>> 11 inch X 2 inch steel brake drums from what I believe are from a Chevrolet truck, mid-late 1920's.? Sooo many obscure parts he used to build his machine. Thank you for the reply, and the help, I TRULY appreciate it. After 30 years of ownership, I need to finish the story, and get the car to a recognized restoration facility. In the world this car will live in, people like me would be frowned upon for the process>>>>> I HATE that, because many of us here are as good>> if not better than those pedigree shops>> Oh well !!!!!! Respectfully submitted, John
  10. NEW Aftermarket units will not work for me, as I need correct era part #'s on the parts for a very special car in time ! I am looking for an "original master cylinder" for a 1933-1935 Dodge. This one has the triangular bolt pattern mount. A NOS unit or a rebuildable, "not stuck" unit is fine. Also; looking for "original" NOS or rebuildable "not stuck" wheel cylinders. Also, there is a weird brass angled fitting which screws into the wheel cylinder>. and then into the rubber brake line hose, need all 4. Please phone and leave a message with your phone number if I do not pick up; Or email motorcarinvestments@gmail.com 217-734-9400 Regards, John Is this the first futuristic exotic automobile in the world, no wider, higher, longer or heavier than a AC Cobra or D Type Jag, but built in 1935 !!! http://www.autopuzzles.com/<WBR>forum/index.php?topic=11958.0 http://www.harrisspeedster.<WBR>com/harris.html<!-- google_ad_section_end --><!-- google_ad_section_end -->

    Taylormade graphic art

    Keiser, Thank you sir !! I could have called him, or emailed him, but felt like an idiot, because i could not find the posting>>> he has MANY>> ha Your tip led me to the Graphic art he did on the Miller race car. It was under Memorabilia, Toys, art etc. I am wanting to post a picture of one he did for me, which will end up going to the Library of Congress. Respectfully submitted, John

    Wanted, original only or NOS, master cyl and wheel cylinders

    Viper 36, Going real slow. Had some set backs with a hip replacement and a few other issues. Back on track, working on some more history about Ben and The Speedster at this time. Taylormade, from herein the site, did some outstanding computer graphics of the car, and a blueprint. Going to submit the speedster to the Library of Congress, in hopes that they will induct it. We shall see They want a blueprint, that is why Richard ( Taylormade ) stepped in >>> great guy to work with, does not get any better AND his work is unsurpassed. If I knew how to move pictures, I would post one here, and would really like to post on ein the Speedster topic area>>> that will blow the guys away. Hope all is well, John
