  1. Are these the ones that your are after? They are not mine, nor do I know anything about the vendor - I was just looking to find an image to see if I had any kicking around https://www.ebay.com/itm/1934-1935-1936-PLYMOUTH-CONVERTIBLE-DASH-KNOB-PKG-MOPAR-SPECIAL-DELUXE-5-KNOBS-/183041826458
  2. This is only a W.A.G. but possibly to do with early traffic lights?
  3. I'll take the Rib Eyes with a little salt sprinkled on them before they hit the grille! I do no recommend adding salt to the Honda... More in keeping with this thread, my wife teaches grade 2 and to introduce her students to ratios she sends them to the staff parking lot to count the number of black vehicles vs the number of white with the only other color being grey. Maybe we've boring as a society in our none color choice and I'm just as guilty as the rest, I just ordered by third black truck in a row. At least it will have chrome still. I actually did look at other colors but decided that since I intend to keep the truck for a long time, black is the most timeless color.
  4. Here's a short YouTube of a 56 GMC with the same style front end And here's a brief history on Van Pelt - some interesting facts there https://fire.fandom.com/wiki/P.E._Van_Pelt_Inc.
  5. One thing that I might add is for anyone that had telephone or written communication with Carl please make notes about the details of the conversation and make sure that any written communication is held onto and made available to the family. As well the forum itself may be invaluable to the family in documenting the events surrounding the car with Carl's own words. Don
  6. Ken, For what it is worth I tried a Google images search for both 1927 Cadillac and 1927 LaSalle for sale as often the images from various for sale ads remain long after a car has been sold. Nothing came up that resembled your brother's car. It may be worth posting on the HAMB as well, someone somewhere in the car world will know where this car is. It may be worth contacting the local media in the LV area, hopefully there is no questionable behavior involved but if there is, a little news coverage may convince someone to do the right thing. My condolences and best of luck on your search. Don
  7. Not to open a can of worms here but I think that is precisely what the family is trying to do and there was no reason prior to now for them to have interfered in his business. Now if the forum members can assist the family in this difficult time with these many difficult tasks all the better. I salute those offering suggestions and information to assist the family because really there are just extended family of our family here. Don
  8. I went digging around in a box of wheel hardware that I forgot about. I know these are a bit longer than you require but if you can make them work they are yours for the shipping - so far I've dug out three, there may be more. Just let me know if these will work and I will look to see if I can find more. I have some slightly different ones where the head is bent up on one side for some reason and the head is larger than these ones. I am only guessing that they are all off of cars as they came in a pile of pre-war stuff that I picked up before it went for scrap but I can't say for sure what a lot of it is. Don
  9. I will contact them - I didn't see them in their online catalog but it certainly looks like something that they may be able to make. Thanks, Don
  10. Talking about a picture being worth a thousand words! For the OP maybe contacting a company like https://www.hpaulin.com/ with the pictures from mike6024 and a description might just get the result that he is after. I can't help but wonder if it's a case of figuring out what the manufacture calls the design to get the right hardware.
  11. I picked up this NOS Dust Cover and of course the vendor only had 1 and I need 2. I have a shoe repair/leather worker that can make me another one, or several if anyone else needs them if I can source the eyelets. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know that there are lace style covers out there but I am trying to stay as original as possible. Of course if anyone has a source for another original one would be the simple route. Don
  12. I grabbed this image from Nichols Tillage Tools Not sure if that is the style that the OP is referring to or not
  13. Billy you sent me down the rabbit hole looking for more info and I stumbled across this web page: https://artsandculture.google.com/exhibit/ge-and-the-electric-car-100-years-of-invention-and-innovation-museum-of-innovation-and-science/AwLCW0hRZDluIQ?hl=en
  14. From the link Billy included looks like around 1979
