  1. Hello, I am looking to purchase a large speedster gas tank. Can you help?. Don in Ohio
  2. Hello Bill, Let me say up front these Hershey wooden Nickles are harder to find than you think. I probably have all the ones you are looking for . I would sell them for $5. ea and a total of $5. for shipping. This will not make me rich but will add to your collection. I hope someone helps me with mine. Don
  3. Hello, I am looking for the following year Hershey wooden Nickles, !983, 1985, 1988 and 1992. Can you help. Than you for your time. Don in Ohio
  4. Hello again, I failed to notice the second gas tank was pictured.. If you sent me dimensions and price of each tank it would help thanks , Don
  5. Hello, I am interested in buying a early speedster gas tank. I am using a 1914 Cadillac frame which is 33 inches wide. I would like the tank to set inside the frame. It also needs to be large to be proportioned to the seat. Could you E-mail me what you might have for sale plus the dimensions . Thanks, Don Feeney in central Ohio F5415F@aol.com 740-816-4284
  6. This fan assembly came off of a Studebaker 6 special engine. I believe from the early 20's I used some of the parts in my 1922 Big 6. The fan ring is 18" in diameter and the bearing is good. $100. buys it and I will pay USA shipping. Thanks, Don in central Ohio 740-816-4284
  7. Hello, Thanks for the information about the CD-8. As you pointed out it is unusual that 2 would be for sale the same week. In 1931 they made about 1800 units. Attached is the 1919 Studebaker Dirt Track Racer I just finished. The build was a lot of fun and not much money. thanks again, Think spring
  8. Hello, I was curious if this gas tank is still for sale or if you have any simular to it. thanks, Don
  9. Hello, Thanks for your comment of encouragement about my Roadster for sale. Attached is the 1919 Studebaker Dirt Track Racer I have just finished. It was built from a car that had a body beyond salvage. It was a fun project and not much money. Think Spring, Don Feeney
  10. Hello, Thanks for comment of encouragement about my Roadster sale. If you have a early Mercer you might be interested in my current project. I am building what I call a 1910 Vanderbuilt racer. I am making it out of different period correct pieces from different makes. I have just finished a 1919 Studebaker Big 6 Dirt track racer. It was built from a Studebaker that had a body was beyond salvage. It was a fun project and not much money. Thanks Don Feeney
  11. For Sale. 1931 Chrysler CD-8 series 1 6 Wheel Roadster . Odometer showing 70K believed to be correct. Clear Ohio title. I have owned this car for the last 12 years and driven it about 4,000 miles. At 75 my time to downsize has arrived. The car was redone around 1980 and it is now a older restoration. It runs and drives well and is ready to go. I have enjoyed it and took good care of it but was not a afraid to drive it. It has all the parts, Front driving lights, Radiator grille stoneguard , Nice side mount tire mirrors . Wind wings. Rear view clock mirror, Radio, exhaust whistle, steering column vacuum fan, correct metal trunk ( not shown in the pictures) rear luggage rack and top down rest brackets. The clum switch works. When I purchased the car the top , side curtains and tonneau cover were just redone.($4500) The car has always sat inside since I have owned it. After purchasing the car I discovered the compression readings were uneven and outside the normal limits. There was a piston ring/land problem. I mic'd the bore's and found them to be straight and not wore. I bought a new set of of standard pistons/rings/gasket set from Egge( $1500) and installed them along with a new timing chain. I honed the block before installing the parts. While the engine was apart I ground the valve seats in the block and had the valves resurfaced. The head was also resurfaced. Upon reassembly things were as they should be. A few years later the master cylinder started leaking and I rebuit it and exchanged the fuel pump. The rubber in the front pulley came apart and I had it rebuilt by the Damper Doctors ($350). I believe if you wanted a 8 cylinder Chrysler Roadster this would be your only choice outside of a Imperial. In 32 and 33 the 8 was not offered in the roadster. Remember this car is 89 years old and in overall excellent condition It is not showroom new but has a nice panita. If you follow the CD-8 Roadster market you will find these don't come up for sale very often. I expect to recover my investment of $ 44K. I live about 40 miles north of Columbus Ohio at the 140 mile marker of I-71. Please note I do not text. Thanks, Don Feeney 740-816-4284 central Ohio F5415F@aol.com

  14. Hello Don, I also have early Plymouths with copper brake lines. I have been told that these lines are not regular copper but a tubing that the refrigeration industry use today. I have a old fashioned siphon gun that holds about a qt. and you hook up your air hose line to it. I would blow the line out first with air to make sure its open. If blocked use a length 10 ga single strand electrical wire to run into the line to unblock it. Then put brake fluid in the siphon gun and wash out the line. Since it's brake fluid any residue left over won't hurt anything. Make a device to catch the brake fluid coming out as it is harmful to paint and makes a general mess. Just a thought. Don Feeney
