  1. I believe you can get 1/2 round stock in brass. It can be plated and threaded studs can be attached to it for mounting. The brass should be fairly easy to bend to the contour it appears you need. Andy
  2. Try John Ulrich and Custom Auto Service. Andy
  3. I was offered this 1928 Chevrolet at $4,500, I am on the fence. It is not local so I am gambling the wood is decent and the engine ok.
  4. 1931 V12, C20. I recall it belonged to Black Hawk when it was restored by Mike Fennel, about 1986
  5. A few from when I worked at Mike Fennel Enterprises back in the mid 1980s'
  6. I am in need on one Packard 1201 Drum Dust Cover. Inside Diameter 15", outside 16" Andy
  7. I had the privilege to be able to take apart, and oversee the restoration on this Duesenberg when I worked for Mike Fennel in the mid 1980's. I do not recall the number, but am sure I have it in the pile of photos I took during the disassembly of the car. I know it was re restored to Maroon and Black and sold a few years ago for over two million if I recall correctly. I will never own one, but I had the opportunity to take one apart and restore it, and drive it. Andy
  8. I would recommend anyone looking to purchase a car inspect it in person, if they are an inexperienced buyer that they have someone well versed in vintage automobiles go with them. Another option would be to have the car inspected by a respected appraiser, cheap insurance to assure one is purchasing what is advertised. A seller can ask what they want, opinions of what is considered restored may differ from seller, to seller. Buyer beware, always.
  9. Ask these questions before even considering renting your car to a studio film, TV, or commercial production. Will the car need to be driven, if yes who will be expected to drive it, will cameras or lights need to be attached to the car, will stunts be done with the car, how many hours will the car be needed each day, can I have myself or a handler with the car each day, what will the rate be for this handler. Beware my car loving Friends. If you have a decent driver quality car that you are ok having people that in most cases are not car people who will appreciate that this vehicle
  10. I would remove the oil cooler and check it for leaks. There is a good chance that it is perforated, could have been there, may have been caused by excessive oil pressure. I had the same problem with my car. The photo is the oil cooler form a 1935 Eight.
