    Some Sort of Tooling

    To me, they look like an early version of a Micro-Stop, which is a tool for repeated depth of a drilling tool, or countersink.

    Question, what is the length of a 1931 Pierce-Arrow 43 4-door sedan?

    I was pleased with the price considering it’s replacing a Model A that I sold for around the same money. And while parts might be expensive, it’s my enjoyment factor and I planned a few thousand in reserves to get her home and sorted out. The fact that it was driving was a big plus, looking at the wiring, the cooling, and brakes are first on my list. Not planning a restoration, but I will see what a good buffing will do for the paint, and I have to get another mounting for my wireless turn signals before I get to far from home. A good friend has offered me bud vases, but I think they might have been outdated by 31... will have to see but comments are appreciated.

    are these mirror brackets?

    Roof gutter mounted roof rack, my parents had a similar one we used camping in the early 1970’s

    Thank you David and Ed, I don’t have an enclosed trailer large enough to get her myself, but I have been in touch with a reputable company and will set up plans to move her south. At some point I’ll be back up to central Mass to help with dad’s estate (assuming my brother who isn’t into cars wants the advice) and I will PM you for that contact information momentarily. I’d already planned to look into that side cover from the eBay photograph of it, and appreciate the confirmation that it could be an issue, as for the wiring, that was suggested by the seller so it was well on the radar. Until I see the car in person, I don’t know what else to ask... I just joined the PA Society and am awaiting access to the members parts of the site where I expect there’s bunches of information to guide me in keeping her roadworthy. I also need to find a radiator cap or two, one for my archer and a second for any aftermarket mascot I might display. Thank you both again for your encouragement, it’s quite a leap of faith but I have been looking for just such a car for quite some time now and I can’t wait for it to get here! Now all I have to do is make room in my tiny garage. Regards, Mark

    Thank you again David, I’m sure those questions will be coming soon unless something unforeseen happens with the sale. I bought the car for what I think was a good price and will get it sorted when I’m finally in possession of it. Thank you for your time and insight.

    Advice / input on buying a late 20's - early 30's car

    I have to say that this is one of the best threads going on anywhere on the internet about cars from this era! I too am looking at this vintage car and have been fascinated by the passion and expertise shared here. Thank you for starting it Brooklyn, and thanks to everyone who has shared their personal experiences with us all

    Thank you again, if I can get her I’ll have a lot more questions but you have been a big help! How is your Hupp that you bought the Trufault shocks for coming along?

    That is the car, and thank you for the information David. I might be able to make it fit in my garage but I was hoping the sellers length estimate was a bit over... I guess not. I know a good machinist that will stitch cast iron, I don’t know if he will do anything with that kind of heating but another question before making a commitment to the car.

    Also, if anyone can comment on parts availability and how well these will keep up and stop in modern traffic it would be appreciated. Thanks again
  11. Just wondering if it would fit in my garage... Thank you in advance
  12. Good point, I was too focused on the fenders and upper shape of the radiator

  14. Willys Overland and the cheaper model called Whippet are two very different cars. Your two pictures are Whippets not the car I had in mind
  15. My first thought is a 25 Willys Overland, but I can’t find any pictures with cowl lights.
