  1. Tom’s Peerless is in great condition and appears to be very complete especially with the 2-rear-spare tire setup. It would make a great show car with little work done to it, not something you would want to drive around too often. I’m not sure if it’s a Raulang body or not, did Raulang make bodies for other car companies? I haven’t purchased the vehicle (yet) but I am considering it. My biggest fear about owning a car with low production is finding parts to complete the restoration vs a Ford or Chevy where there is an abundance of spare parts and reproductions. The previous owner did a great job storing the car. Thanks Jeff for all the data information.
  2. Grimy, you change your oil once a year or every 1000 miles, is that what is required on prewar vehicles? Do you guys use 100% gas or regular gas with ethanol?
  3. Greendragon, why do you use diesel engine oil? Is it thicker than regular engine oil or a better grade oil? How do you guys think about synthetic oil?
  4. Do you think that the word rare can be implied as a status symbol? For example, if I see my neighbor washing his 57 Cadillac Coupe de Ville (23813) I can say “Nice car, but I have a 57 Cadillac Eldorado (2100)."
  5. Do you service your own car? What is the service schedule for the Continental 248 cubic inches engine and type of oil and lubricants? Did the 1929 Peerless Model 6-81 come with a motometer radiator cap or a regular flat radiator cap? Hae you ever used Marvels Mystery Oil in your engine?
  6. Yes it was Tom Wallace who posted the car for sale. I’m surprised that it hasn’t sold yet. Wow, that seems like a lot of work trying to keep up with all the Peerless, Packard, and Pierce-Arrows worldwide. I hear a lot about the 3 Ps, were they called the 3 Ps because they all started with the letter P and made luxury cars or did they have some kind of partnership? Do you own a Peerless, if so what model?
  7. Thanks guys for your opinion on this. I see a lot of sellers use the word rare when selling a car to justify over inflating their price which spurred the question. I guess a rare car is worthless if it's undesirable. Only worth as much as someone is willing to play for it.
  8. Does having a rare car help or hurt the value of the vehicle? On one side of the augment you can say that the rarity increase the demand for the car increasing the price. But on the other augment, you can say that it’s rarity decrease the value because parts are going to be so hard to find and what parts you are able to find are going to be so expensive it will ruin the joy of restoring a vehicle.
  9. Hey, Jeff, thanks for responding. The car is located in Toledo, Ohio and has been posted on AACA in the past. The car appears to be in very good condition and the engine is the Continental 248 cubic inches that runs bottle feed due to issues with the fuel line. The low production and rarity of this or any vehicle brings up another question? Does having a rare car help or hurt the value of the vehicle? On one side of the augment you can say that the rarity increase the demand for the car increasing the price. But on the other augment, you can say that it’s rarity decrease the value because parts are going to be so hard to find and what parts you are able to find are going to be so expensive it will ruin the joy of restoring a vehicle. I think I will also post this question in the general discussion.
  10. Hello everyone, I recently came across a 1929 Peerless Model 6-81 Sedan on Craigslist but I am unable to find any specifications on this vehicle. How can I find information on the 1929 Peerless Model 6-81 Sedan such as the production number, interior and exterior color info, and if other car parts will fit on the Peerless for example; will Chevrolet or Ford parts fit on this Peerless (mainly lights, engine, and suspension). Any little info would be very helpful. Thanks
  11. Ok, the Buick is a 1925 Buick Master Six Coach; not a 1924 which is on the title. I will need to go to the tag agency to have it changed. Thanks guys for your help, I really appreciate it.
  12. Thanks everyone for your input. I got the VIN from the title but will verify it with the engine number.
  13. I have a 1924 (I think) Buick 2 door sedan that I am trying to get information on. I would like to find out what model the Buick is, how many was produced, and a good place to get parts for it. the VIN is 1317140. Also, what book or website ca I go too to find this information. Thanks
