  1. Typical 2-script Model T tire pump that would have been standard equipment on all T’s in the mid 20’s.
  2. If I had a place for that I’d be on my way with a trailer! What an awesome piece of Automobillia.
  3. There was one in very similar shape for sale in Maine about 4 years ago, a friend from work asked me to look it over with him as he was more interested in later cars and thought I would have a better appreciation of the 20’s to give him advice. It was $7500.00 and he passed on it... $23k is only Double what I would think it could bring so it’s not as nutty as others.
  4. I agree that it is an Overland, you can just see the script on the corner of the hood, now just need the model.
  5. If anyone has a copy of the instructions for a Winn Synchrometer they could share copies or good photos of each page it would be appreciated. Here’s pictures of a unit and the instructions I need a copy of if possible. I stole the pictures from eBay sales and have a unit coming in the mail soon. Thank you, Mark

  8. A few years ago on one of the Ford Forum areas, there was a thread about very similar wheels that were made as aftermarket accessories for a Model T. The guy had a pair of these and wanted the other two. He was able to find patent drawings online so they knew who made them at the time, but finding the thread would be a challenge....
  9. I wonder if he was referring to a free-wheeling transmission? At first you say wheeeeee down the hills and whaaaat the #$@#$$ when you think you should have deceleration using the engine...
  10. Here’s a couple pictures from google, that emblem shows up on eBay somewhat frequently, the pot metal wings behind it hardly ever. Good luck finding a picture of the crank cover as few pictures seem to catch it.
  11. Neat item, it’s called a license plate topper and it looks like a presidential support one for F.D.R. to me from the mid to late 30’s. Many of the ones you see in a cast aluminum are booster items that would reflect your hometown, or vacation destinations such as different states and beaches. MANY were and are being reproduced to this day although yours looks original. As for a value, watch eBay as they come up often enough if not the exact one a similar one will get you in the ballpark, but watch out for the reproduction ones. Look at this site and see how many different ones are still available- https://www.obrientruckers.com/ecom/category/236/
  12. Yup, those are the pictures that make it look good, but these pictures show the wood issues... he did do a great mock-up of a straight car!
  13. Boy, now there’s a way to have your camper on the field at Hershey and not get booted - just set the price too high and claim it’s an appropriate item for sale...
  14. Those years of LaSalle are one of my absolute favorite looking cars. I don’t know why, but I have always wanted a similar 27-31 LaSalle. That said, the car doesn’t have hardly any wood left in the body which has to be one of the most expensive things to have done without something left for patterns. If there’s enough to go by, a good woodworker could save it if he’s doing it for himself and for fun, he would have to be doing it for love and never even expect to break even on its cost. BUT if there’s nothing for a pattern it needs to be done by someone who specializes in the wood and it’s going to take longer if he needs to create as he goes. If I hit the lottery and didn’t care about the cost, I would probably still buy a better one. Even at the opening bid, it most likely will never get done even as a rod because of the wood. I think it would become a parts car pieced out for other better projects....
  15. I don’t think I have much for Marquette, but will look and let you know if I find anything
