  1. Give Kurt Kelsey a call if you haven't.... 641-648-9086 He has a lot of Pontiac parts, you might get lucky or he may know of a source.
  2. For 1938, Pontiac started the transition to the steering column shifter (3 on the tree) in place of the floor shifter. Which do you have? I assume it is the steering column shifter from your comments (when I owned my '38 Pontiac it was also a column shifter). For the steering column shifter, there are linkages to operate the shifting which can get out of adjustment causing issues. The recommendation above to unhook the linkages at the transmission and check to see if the transmission will operate is to determine if it is a linkage issue or transmission issue. I don't have access to my '38 manual at the moment but the '54 manual calls for SAE 80 or 90 multipurpose gear lube for the manual transmission. It should be filled to the bottom of the fill plug on the transmission.
  3. I have attached a picture with information that is this truck. Taken from page 55 of "Van Pelt Fire Apparatus, 1925-1987 Photo Archive" by Chuck Madderom. If someone knows how to rotate the picture that would be great...
  4. Thanks for the feedback. The red looks wrong but not bad and I wouldn't offer anymore than 15k if I pursued it. My wife and I would like to look at Matt Harwood's '31 Cadillac but it is just out of our budget at this time. We are looking for a late '20's or early 30's car to tour in.
  5. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1925-Cadillac-Other/164775986188?hash=item265d6a040c%3Ag%3AxMUAAOSwdJRgWUot&LH_ItemCondition=3000|1000|2500 http://smclassiccars.com/cadillac/685649-1925-cadillac-model-63-2-door-sedan.html I went and test drove this car yesterday. I think the price is optimistic as there a lot of little things which will need addressed. The car did drive well once it got started. Electric Fuel Pump -- added but needs to be properly wired (fire hazard at the moment) Brake Light doesn't work. They claim other lights work but not verified (I was running out of time) Windshield Wiper -- arm is missing and motor isn't hooked up (how hard is it to get parts and working?) All of the tires need replaced (7.00-21) which are not the original size but are readily available. Wheel for spare tire is painted differently than the rest of the car. New battery was dead when I arrived to drive car so there is properly an electrical issue somewhere. Cloth for seats looked like 80's GM cloth but done well. Some chips in paint on wheels I think I am going to pass on this car but I would appreciate any input if someone thinks I should reconsider if this car is special in some way. Thanks. Lee
  6. Thanks for posting the video of the '32 Ford. My wife and I have seen it on your website and surprisingly she likes the car as much if not more than me. Too bad we aren't in the market to buy one right now.
  7. I have updated the price for the AACA forum members. Available for $6,500
  8. Selling 20ft. open car trailer by Featherlite. Aluminum construction, GVWR is 9,600lbs. Tandem axles with brakes at each wheel, removable fenders. EZ Lube axle bearings, self adjusting electric brakes, and LED lighting (all lights work). I purchased new and have put approximately 5,000 miles on the trailer. Trailer has been stored outside with tire covers. Includes following options: Spare Tire and Mount 15" Aluminum Rims (including spare) Locking Tool Box The trailer is located in Coralville, Iowa and the price is $7,500. AACA Forum Price of $6,500.
  9. Listing our 1956 Pontiac Chieftain 4-Door Station Wagon for sale. Purchased in Spring of 2013 from a dealer in Chicago who acquired it from an estate in Florida. It is an older restoration which shows well but it is not perfect and we drive it often except over the winter. The color combo is black over red which is a correct color combination but not the original color of gray over black. Interior seats are black & white vinyl with a white dash and headliner. Carpet is black. The car has radial whitewall tires including the spare and we added a Vintage Air Mark IV under the center dash so it looks like an appropriate add-on and keeps things cool on those hot & humid summer days. Car runs well, starts right up and will take you wherever you need to go. When was the last time you saw a Pontiac 4-Door wagon especially in this color combo? We gets lots of attention anywhere we go, it was a hit in 2016 when we did part of Route 66. I can take additional pictures for those who are interested. Sadly we need to part ways with the car due to career changes occurring in our lives. The car is located in Coralville, Iowa and the price is $33,000.
  10. K = Kansas City Assembly Plant 8 = 8-cylinder 2 = Should be Z for 1954 A = Hydramatic (1954 model 28) 5639 = serial number
  11. This car is still available. The 1941 Pontiac Coupe has sold.
  12. Only issue is that there is an exhaust leak from the manifold, I haven't found anyone locally that is equipped for this kind of work.
  13. Only issue is that I add a quart of oil with every fill-up which isn't an problem to me at this time. I haven't gotten anyone to look into the motor but if I went that route then the asking price would go up...
