  1. The fenders with the double bead look like 1932 Cadillac.
  2. Try this company, https://www.vbeltsupply.com/. I found the correct size belt (no cogs) for my 32 cadillac at a fraction of the cost that a vender was asking. Alex D.
  3. I once had a 1929 Nash model 440 with the twin ignition 6. It was a very smooth running engine. At idle you can balance a nickel on the valve cover without it falling. I remember the wood in the roof was difficult to repair and it had some of the lowest grade pot metal I had ever seen, other than that it was a fine automobile.
  4. Also note the 1932 Cadillac gauge cluster. Did Auburn have deep foot wells? Looks like an awkward driving pasition.
  5. It has been about 10 years since I had my F350 with the 7.3. If I recall correctly there is a nylon bushing on the clutch pedal linkage under the dash that wears out. This could prevent the clutch from engaging completely and also activating the start switch. I would buy a couple at a time for their life span was about 10000 miles. You may want to check this out before going to extremes.
  6. WTB the free wheeling pedal that mounts under the toe board on the 1932 Cadillac. I have the control valve and the power cylinder, I just need the pedal assembly. Alex D.
  7. No brass pipe. They look like some sort of stand-off with 1/2-13 thread. They came with some odd bumper parts but it is possible some plumbing parts were thrown in the mix.
  8. These parts came to me in a parts lot. I have no idea what they are for or what they go to. All but 2 have new chrome. I would like to pass these on to someone that may need them. Alex D.
  9. Fyreline, such tiny hands you have. Does take both to hold a spoon?
  10. The first part of the question has been answered, “It’s a special brushed effect” The inside and back of the grill appears to have been painted black. Can this be verified? Alex D.
  11. I took my Radiator casing/grille shell and grille to my plater today. The question came up as to the proper type of finish to the plating. Is it supposed to be a bright finish as on the casing or more of a matt or brushed finish? The inside and back looks like it may have been painted black with just the front surface bright. There is nothing in the authenticity manual as to the proper chrome plating on the grille. Alex D.
