  1. Also used on the 28 Chevrolets. Its the 1928 version of the late 80s ABS stickers on many car makes. They could stop in a MUCH shorter distance than their predecesors with 2 wheel brakes. There were still many cars on the road with 2 wheel brakes at that time. I have a recast one I am going to use on my 28 project. I would worry about an original being forcably ripped off at some event.

    parts wanted

    I have 1 20 rim I have not identified that came with my 29 Chev coupe. I use it as part of a living history display when we go to some car shows. It uses 4 mounting points. If you could send a picture of what you are looking for that would be great. If it is the right type I would let it go. Art beaconb3@gmail.com
  3. The driver of the second car almost looks like a gal. Thgat would be unusual for the day, and if so you would think there might be some sort of a record.
  4. Try Philbin Electric in Portland OR.
  5. I have a transmission for a 39 car. It is very small 9-1/2" long from front flange to rear of torque tube socket. This is the floor shift model not the column shift. It does not have the casting lugs for the e-brake since that would be to the left of the driver . Would like to get $75 plus shipping. Art
  6. The way the light switch looks it is similar to a 28 Chev. If you can save the handle you might be able to get a new switch. The 28 Chevs had two different switches. One had handle mounting tabs set at a 45 degree angle, where as the other one I think the handle is mounted straight across but it could be up and down. They are not interchangeable. The Filling Station carries both.
  7. Our 28 Chrysler used some similar ones. They had wires on both ends, and laced up the middle. Jack Corly in Gresham OR had them in stock. You might check with him.
  8. Recently saw a picture of a 28 Chev roadster pickup from Canada that had a fleetside bed and a smooth finished tailgate. The owner said there was not many made in this pattern. There were a lot of body builders at that time. Hercules pickups had smooth sided metal over wood pickup beds.
  9. I think those wheels can be found. The hub caps may be a different item. When our friend did a concours restoration on her 6-17 the restorer pulled the brass covers off the hub caps and restored them separately. There are the remains of 3 6-14 cars.
  10. Or truck. 29, 30, and possibly 28, and 31 Chev trucks used 6" x 20" rims.
  11. Looks to be a 6-14 Deluxe coupe. Should be a very nice car. Quite reliable and would have a mid sized Continental 6 cylinder with full pressure bearings. Someone might post it in the Durant forum.
  12. Hello Patrick, I suggest go to and contact the DMAC club at their web site. There are people who buy and sell Star, Durant, Flint, and the other makes founded by William Durant. The California Chapter is having their spring fling soon. A fun group that likes to tour.

    center caps

    Keiser31 is right about the lower right being a horn button. The little Chev caps can be used on either wood or disc wheel hubs and came in at least two diameters. The nickle plated brass ones with the name were used on cars and the steel ones without the name were used on trucks. The mid 20s Chevy caps are worth $5 to $10 each. The Whippet looks in fairly nice shape so if you can find the right buyer could get a fair amount more. The DB cap was for Dodge Brothers.
  14. Do not really need the rest of the items but I am interested in the cut out that is sitting on top of the little cardboard box. Would $15 and shipping do it? Thanks for the consideration.
  15. Bear in mind that when the vacuum tank is NOT drawing gas from the tank you will have a slight vacuum leak that may make it seem to be running a little rough. Especially at idle.
