  1. Fantastic images, George Cole-thank you for sharing these
  2. I know it's probably a long shot,but I need 1 (or two) Denman 8.20-15 Wide whitewall tires.Have an older set that is on my 1948 Cadillac,and one of the front tires suffered a road hazard I really like them,and want to keep a matched set on the car, so need one and would buy two or more if available. An older tire is fine,as they have been out of production for a while. Will be at Fall Hershey. Thank you. Jim (561) 373 7200

  4. In the early 1970's,as a young,enthusiastic "car guy",I would go to every vintage car show I could attend.I frequently would see a yellow, early 1928 Model A "AR" Phaeton.I got to know the car's owner, Frank Hill,and eventually he shared the story of his car with me.An American who had emigrated to Australia in the late 1960's,he met his wife,Dot,in Australia,and eventually they both decided that they would relocate to the United States. Returning to the United States by ship,they were en route to their ship for their departure when Frank spotted the Model A, sitting for sale several blocks f
  5. 1927 Austin 7, chassis number 36828, with Maythorn and Sons (coachbuilders for Bugatti, Delage, Minerva,Hispano Suiza, etc) coupe body, built for the Pulitzer family of New York publishing fame. Purchased for use at their home in Palm Beach, Florida and used by the Pulitzer family until 1935, when sold to J.C. Ohmer of West Palm Beach. The Austin was kept by Mr. Ohmer until 1969, when it was purchased by Mrs. Marjorie Greene, also of West Palm Beach. Mrs. Greene, with the help of her son Dick Greene, a well known restorer of vintage race cars and vintage motorcycles, restored the

  7. 1957 Ford Thunderbird,white exterior with red interior,restored in the 1990's by Blackfin Yachts founder Carl Herndon.Has both hardtop and soft top.312 D code engine with dress-up kit,Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels.Equipped with very rare factory 3 speed overdrive manual transmission as well as power steering,which makes this a fun and pleasurable car to drive .Total production of 3 speed/overdrive cars was approximately 3% of total 1957 T-Bird production,so this is indeed a rare and special T-Bird. Priced firmly and fairly at $26,500. No trades,please.Please contact Jim at 561-373-7200
  8. Have the sidemount covers-one does require repair,so they have not been installed up to this point.And I do not have the mirrors , but do have some pretty unusual period mirrors that go with the car.
  9. In 2004,while attending a non automotive swap meet,I happened by a vendor who was selling some vintage car parts.As I inquired about the parts,the owner asked if I might be interested in a 1934 Packard that she would be selling, an original car that she and her late husband had purchased in 1958 from it's original owner. As the 1934 Packard represents to me, as well as to many Packard aficionados,the pinnacle of styling for Packard,I was definitely interested.Excited to see the car,and hopefully be able to purchase it,several weeks later I was contacted by the owner,who was by now ready to se
  10. Added a few more pictures of interior and engine on Tuesday.
  11. 1928 Model A Phaeton,very desirable 35A Phaeton body style.An early production "AR" model that was built and resided in Australia until 1970,when the American who met and married his wife in Australia brought the car to the United States with them.A great looking car restored in the 1970's and now with a nice patina,it is finished in yellow with black fenders with a black top.Luggage color interior.Runs well,new tires approximately three years ago.Priced very fairly at $19,500.
