  1. This vacuum motor fits 1928 to 1930 Chevrolet (quite possibly several other makes as well). 1931 had the switch on the unit controlled by a rod from inside.
  2. I still have the tach. It is from my fathers collection that he had. I have not run it and presently don't have a way to test it. As far as I recall it was working. Regards
  3. Bill-29 Buick is correct. There are no drawings or plans for this body and I do not know of anyone who supplies premade wood. With the cowl, windshield surround parts and dimensions from the floor and a few from the body the windshield frame with "A" pillars can be back engineered. Check out my photos on my Facebook page "Automotive Wood Bodies" to see what did for a 1929 Chevrolet with only about 2 feet of one main floor sill left intact. Regards
  4. From body distortion I would expect it needs all body wood replaced. Costly.
  5. I am looking for a rear hub for a twelve spoke wood wheel. 1926 or 1927 Pontiac wheels may have this size hub. Can someone who owns either of these years check and confirm if their hub matches? It will help me in my search for a matching wheel. Thanks.
  6. You said "just so you know your facts i just finished a 1929 coupe using 2 dr cabriolet doors it is a convertible sports coupe with a rumble seat ". Coupes and sport coupes have doors that fully enclose the windows. Cabriolet and or convertible coupes have fold down tops and the window glass (in chrome frames) are exposed. From what you say you don't know that a convertible coupe for 1929 is a cabriolet. Of course the doors are the same. Anyway I do not know why you are being so vitriolic. Who do you think really cares about it? Oh and by the way I do not know what your midsection (waist) has to do with time. And as far as wasting time why are you even still responding to this thread! My time is over so you won't see me answer here again.
  7. I do not believe so. Coach doors are typically wider then the Sedan doors. Try your luck on the VCCA chat site.
  8. I have eighteen of these rim clamps and my best research indicates 1931 to 1933 Auburn Maybe others I do not know. Please confirm your application as I make no guarantee as to fitment. They all measure 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/2" tall overall. All for one price. $150.00 USD plus cost to mail. If I have incorrectly identified these please advise and I will repost appropriately.

  10. The problem with these old patterns is they are on cardboard and shrink. I recently had my glass done by an individual with a set of these patterns and when the glass was checked against the pattern they were way off and not consistently. The windshield pattern was about 1/2" too short and about 1" less in width. He ended up cutting using my original glass as I had it all out. So most likely these patterns are pretty much useless unless verified against original glass. If you need glass have the original copied or if its missing use some 1/4" hardboard and make a pattern that fits and then have the glass cut to match it.
  11. It looks like you are missing a cross sill that should be behind the frame crossbar that holds the ebrake hanger. It would be 1 1/4" thick and have a 3/4" board behind it. I don't see the mortise for it? Also there should be a 3/4" board at the front seat directly behind the front floor board. These are permanently glued and screwed to the main sills.
