  1. I am a couple miles from Kingsville and may be able to help you out. Which dealer are you looking at? The one that comes to mind that deals in vintage automobiles is G& M auto sales on Belair rd. in Kingsville. Alex d.
  2. I am looking for an aluminum cylinder head for the Willys or Kaiser Flat head 4 cylinder. Hickey, Chucau or Willy Willy. Alex D.
  3. I would buy another gallon and not dilute.
  4. 1932 Cadillac grocery list for the 2019 fall Hershey Ignition coil (v12) Right front fender, with side mounts Running boards, (57" length for 140” wheel base) Engine mud pan/ splash pan ( V12) Rear Bumper gas cap gas tank cover molding (left side later style) Alex D.
  5. BTT for 2019 Fall Hershey I will not send Western Union money grams or Bitcoin to someone in Arizona, Nevada, India or BF Egypt for parts that I have not visually inspected from someone I have not previously dealt with.
  6. Mercury Breezeway, I remember a friend of my parents had one back in the day. https://macsmotorcitygarage.com/a-look-back-at-the-mercury-breezeway/
  7. Roger I know Paulie, I turned him on to this thread. The next time I see him I will give him that medal (Quarter dollar) for you. I’m looking forward to your v16 project. Alex D.
  8. Roger I believe these are the images you are looking for showing the relation between the front and rear spokes as attached to the hub. Also included a photo of the backside of the wheel. Alex D.
  9. Roger I’m glad you were able to find a chassis with engine installed. Due o the complexity of all the linkage for the brakes it would have been almost impossible to photograph and measure with a body installed. Vacuum assist brakes and vacuum assist clutch, who would have thought in 1932, not to mention freewheeling pedal. My Cadillac is my first and I was advised to run from this project and run fast. I have never been one to heed to good advice. Alex D.

  11. Roger The car was originally all black. I have had my fill of black cars so I will be deviating from original on the paint. I will be going with a dark gray on the fenders and upper (same gray as chassis) and a lighter gray on the lower body with red wheels. The upholstery will be a big expense since it is something I cant do properly. Alex D.
  12. After about 5 years I’m in the middle of my restoration. The engine is rebuilt and running. I just installed the exhaust from Waldron and I’m impressed at how well it fit. Now I am now working on the body preparing it for paint. I will do what I can to supply you with the pictures and dimensions you may need for your 1:12 scale. Alex D.
  13. Everybody stepped back but you Carl. Give the man a shout!
  14. Hello Roger I have been following your 1:12 scale build of the Continental for over 5 years. I must say it has been more impressive than any full scale build that I have followed. I am in the process of restoring a 1932 V12. There are some things that the V16 may share with the V12. I also have service manuals for 1932/33 that I can scan images. I would be glad to help out in any way I can. Alex D.
  15. Can you post some pictures of this "Detroit Lubricator model 51, type r-13-2 downdraft" ?
