  1. I've had this axle for decades. It went to Chickasha one year and anyone that had an opinion thought Chevrolet. I'd like to know for sure. Pretty sure the felloe band was stamped 30x3 1/2. Appreciate any help.
  2. These were together in a pile and identical end bolts,the one that appears to be a rear with a pooch out for a rear spare is a bit taller than the one I presume is the front. Appreciate any help.
  3. I've known about this for years and finally was able to pick it up. I'm pretty sure the owner told me Premier years ago but he couldn't remember now. Luckily it's been in dry country and may be rare enough to be worth a resurrection for someone in Indianapolis where it came from.
  4. The big Marmon history book says the original company was Nordyke and Marmon and they made a series of flour milling machines,electrical equipment,etc. long before getting into automobiles. I suspect that plate was on something they made in the very early 1900's,possibly a vehicle,that had just the Marmon name like all the cars from then on.
  5. It looks similar to the wire wheel hubcap emblems but with the screw holes more likely off a sidemount hole cover.
  6. It's not a caulking iron for oakum I can tell you for sure having a five-year plumber's apprenticeship under my belt,starting in 1970.
  7. It appears as tho the driveshaft is missing,it may have been under a trailer in the old days. It may also mean that the transmission was gutted so the gears weren't turning to add resistance to the trailer while it was being towed. If that is the case that will affect value negatively. It also appears to have had a lot of brazing on one side of the center housing which isn't a good sign. If you put it in the "parts for sale" section I suggest you put in your general location so guys will know how far they have to go to pick it up.
  8. There have been articles on the Hillbilly's vehicle over the years and it is definitely a cut down Olds touring car. The model is out of the memory bank but it did have the 4cyl engine I believe with the three port head,similar to the bigger Chevrolet FA or FB,not the 490. Olds offered a V-8 from 1916 to 1923 but the Hillbilly's car didn't have one if memory serves.
  9. I have one of these oddballs that is 26" and I never knew what brand it was. After seeing your post I dug mine out and looked it over pretty carefully. There are words in the bit of pitting it has and with a magnifier it looks like THE STANDARD WELDING CO. and possibly the size 36x4. STANWELD for short. Earlier Stanweld rims had a two-piece lockring systen very very similar to Firestone. Where Firestone used a Z-shaped lockring with the bead ring over it,Stanweld had an L shaped one. I'm guessing my rim and yours were replacements for Firestones and Kelseys looking at the ridges on the inside. Short-timers evidently,maybe they weren't safe to use after rusting a bit.
  10. It looks like those lenses have a dip in the top and would be for this style Stutz lights only. I would say a headlight lense dealer would want at least $150 for one of these lenses as many Stutz's are full classics and expensive. My suggestion would be to clean them up a bit,price them in the $225 to 275 range including boxing and shipping. If they sell,take them into a FedEx office or UPS store and let them box and ship them. It will cost you some bucks but you will come out of there with some good bucks in your pocket.
  11. The little sign up on the roof peak says " SUITS US",I guess it probably does.
  12. All I have is this wall unit,a bar with mirrors and a light,none of the actual alignment hardware. It would be neat in an old retro shop but it's not going to work in mine now. Both ends have HUNTER embossed in them and there are cubbies with doors to stow cans of oil,grease guns and so forth. The paint is a bit faded but no bad rust issues. It's pretty big being 54" tall and 128" long. Like to get $375 and it will need to be picked up in Cheyenne Wyoming. In a couple weeks is Cheyenne Frontier Days,the biggest outdoor rodeo that hundreds of thousands of people come to,see who in your club,work,church,gym,etc is coming and see if they could pick it up for you. PM me if interested.

    Pierce Arrow had some cast aluminum body sections and maybe Franklin.
  14. You might contact the headlight dealers in Hemmings and see if they could be of help.
