  1. Wow - the same architect must have designed the Pierce-Arrow building (shown here under construction circa 1914) in San Francisco (still can read the "Pierce-Arrow" chiseled in the masonry at the top):
  2. I need 2 top rest saddles for a 1922 Stutz touring. The casting number is 467. Size is approx 9.875" Photo below. Thanks, Bob
  3. Would like to have factory photos, or any other period photos of 1933 Pierce-Arrow Convertible Sedan. Also, does anyone remember previous owners of car pictured below? Thanks.
  4. Hi Jason, Do you have the capability to repair distorted pot metal end castings on a Delco Model O-F? (1922 Stutz) Thanks, Bob
  5. I need 2 usable latches that fasten the canvas top front header to the windshield posts for my 1922 Stutz KLDH Touring. My rusty one is pictured below, and has a slider which engages the notch on the windshield post. There is a coil spring that the post presses against, and another smaller spring that keeps the slider engaged until it is pushed to release. Size is 2.5” across. Don’t know if it is common to other makes. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Bob Jacobsen

  7. After advertising for a 1933 Pierce-Arrow headlight switch, I received an email from RayMax@gmail.com, stating he has '1933 Pierce-Arrow parts, "email me for more details". I replied "please describe in detail what you have, pictures are helpful." He replied: "Here is the attached picture of my 1933 Pierce-Arrow. I²mbreaking this car for parts because of my health problem as I need to sell the caron time to raise funds to take care of my health problems.I want youto send me the list of parts that you are after , so that I can giveyou prices for them .I will also need your exact delivery address to allow me know if thedelivery will be practical to your door step .My Regards ." [no name] THE PICTURE of the car he was "breaking up" WAS OF A 1933 PIERCE SILVER ARROW (1 of 3 in the world) !!! I googled his email, and it turned up in a Russian dating service under "carautonews.xyz" Caveat emptor.
  8. Ed, thanks for the opportunity to clear things up. I seem to remember it the other way 'round ...at that 2015 Pebble, I snapped this pic of you entertaining 4 ladies, telling them all about 'your' Packard and how much work you had to do to it !!! Cheers ! Uncle Bob
  9. Ed & George, you brought a smile to my face (actually laughed out loud). Actually, I prefer In-n-Out Burgers, and I'll treat you both there or at Carmel Coffee Roasters when we meet at Pebble Beach. That is, if I have any spare cash after work on the 1242 Pierce, the '38 Buick, the '22 Stutz and the '54 Jaguar (all in and out of shops last year and this for everything from new carbs, new tops to complete brake systems and crankshaft turning). Happy Valentine's Day. BTW - I might be wearing a new hat.
  10. Hi Guys, My throttle lever rotates on the Stromberg AAV-1 throttle shaft on my 1938 Buick Special. The staking has failed, permitting slop (about 20*) between the shaft and lever. A solid throttle shaft/lever assembly (Stromberg # P-23332) would be much appreciated, instead of having to machine new parts. A parts carb or throttle body assembly would be great, too. Picture attached of needed lever part of assembly (shaft hidden behind paper towel). Thanks, Bob Jacobsen bobjacobsen@sbcglobal.net 650-967-9310
  11. Hi Matt, Your header project looks great. I am replacing manifold gaskets on my 1938 Buick Series 40 convert, and will be trying Remflex gaskets (since my intake and exhaust manifolds are about .016 out of flat, even after adjusting the heat box bolts). My question is, do you recommend a graphite slurry like on copper gaskets (so the manifold can slide well) or is the graphite material of the Remflex sufficiently slippery to not have to use any? Thanks, Bob Jacobsen
  12. Definitely a 1934-1937 Cad V16, info from United Motors Delco Catalog #101.
  13. Rear license plate holder chrome center section and light (no wings) with perfect glass. Glass has # 593 153 2, casting has #593 150 2. Perfect glass, chrome lamp casting is good but pitted, cast metal back plate seems to have chip out of right side (is it missing support for wings?). (See pictures) $50 including shipping to US.
  14. Here is a photo of the back of the hub (sorry about the shadows):
