  1. Thank you all! I send an e-mail to Mr. Neil Wilson of the AA Fords Club. He was positive that the cap belonged to a a 1928 AA truck (after March 1928). He wasn't sure about the hub. Meanwhile I found another newspaper article about a truck loosing its front wheel (and driving into the canal) at the location where the wheel was found (july 26th 1930). That might fit in well with the find. I'm trying to find out more about the accident in the police archives. Thanks again! Fanta Voogd - Amsterdam

  3. Hello Sam, Thanks a lot for your help. I allready started a new post. Someone suggested it's a disc wheel that belonged to a Model AA Truck. That might be a good hunch. (There was also a Model AA in a cab-version, so that fits in with the accident in 1927.) The name of the new post is: Ford Wheel Twenties. Maybe it's a good idea to continue the thread there. PLEASE EVERYBODY WHO'S INTERESTED, HAVE A LOOK AT THE NEW THREAD: "FORD WHEEL TWENTIES".
  4. I found newspaper articles about an accident on december 8th 1927 exactly at the location where the hub was found (in a canal). Two cabs hit each other badly and a wheel of one of the cars was torn off. I understood that Ford made special taxicabs. Could it have been a cab? Fanta Voogd - Amsterdam

  6. L.S. I am working on a publication about the archaeological stuff found in a filled in canal in Amsterdam (Netherlands). At the moment we're focussing on the automobile finds. One of them is a Ford-wheel. Propably out ot the twenties. Is there someone who knows to what Ford model it belonged. And in what year these type of wheels were produced. AACA-member Sambarn thought it was a '29-'31 Model A wood (artillery-style) wheel. But he of she wasn't quite sure (thanks! Sambarn). Fanta Voogd - Amsterdam
  7. Dear K8096, Wonderful. I am convinced. Could I possibly mention your (real) name?. And how can I describe you? As 'one of Stutz-specialist in the US'? My article is for a scientific publication, so my editors might ask for the source of my knowledge. Now I've got another question. Are you just as well informed as it concerns Ford automobiles? Another Amsterdam find is a Ford-wheel. Is it possible to connect it with a specific Ford type of car? And can you see in what period these kind of wheels were made. Thank you verry much for your help.
  8. Dear mr. Saxton, To be honest I don't fully understand what you mean. (Could be my faulty English.) The find surely isn't a reproduction, because it was burried deep in the Amsterdam mud ever since the thirties. Is Darien Cassidy the same as K8096? If that's what you mean, I would love to get in touch with him. I would like to know all about the two types of Stutz Ra-radiotorcaps (1926-1928 of 1929-1933). Regards, Fanta Voogd - Amsterdam
  9. I stick to K8096's explanation. Does anybody knows the source of his/her knowledge?
  10. Haha. Propably not. This is what happens with (the many) cars that drive into the cannel.
  11. Thanks for you fast reply. I think your right. But I wanted to be sure. And I would be delighted to know what's the source of K8096's knowledge. (I am working for scientific guys ). Regards, Fanta Voogd

As a historic journalist I am working on a article about an archaeological find. A Stutz Ra radiator cap which was found on the bottom of a filled in canal in the center of Amsterdam (Netherlands). Could you please tell me wether its a cap from the 1926 - 1928 period? Of from the 1929 -1933 period? And could you please also tell me what's the source of your knowledge? I hope you can help me out. With kind regards, Fanta Voogd - Amsterdam (Netherlands)
