  1. yeah, thats it- well, pretty close. Slightly different treatment around the spark plug recesses, but the general layout of the block and the various mounting points for accessories is dead-on.
  2. The valve spring and lifters on #1, #3, #6, #7 & #8 (as viewed from the front of the block>) all pass through the block and line up with the overhead rockers. Check out the thread pitch on those studs coming vertically out of the block just above that magneto/ generator/ waterpump/ distributor drive coupling!
  3. With those one-year-only dual headlights and that EXTRA LOUD klaxon up front, the Harleys are super rare 1929 JDH's. Probably the most sought after early Harley ever built. They were considered the pinnacle of performance in their day! https://www.motorcycleclassics.com/classic-american-motorcycles/1929-harley-davidson-jdh-zmsz15sozhur/
  4. They both have variations on that distinctive "Widows Peak" radiator shell, but the OPs car does not appear to be an A-D.
  5. Its too bad, but yeah, it looks like the re- plater used a extremely heavy hand and obliterated many of the intricate details on this ornament. To a Ford or Lincoln collector this has noticeably changed its appearance, but to the casual observer walking down a row at an All Makes car show, maybe not so much. Perhaps this guy should lay off the chrome plating for awhile and try out a new side hustle restoring Renaissance paintings?
  6. 1938 Ford Deluxe roadster, model 48- slightly customized with sealed beam converted headlights
  7. Brother to the Power Wagon, the Dodge M-37! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodge_M37

  9. A Schebler model "D". As Sagefunds says, they were used in several applications in the automotive, agricultural or stationary power industries and were popular in the aftermarket as well. The friction-held "guillotine" throttle mechanism on this one was not well suited to the constant opening and closing of an automotive application and was probably used in a marine setting where you typically adjusted your speed a few times per outing, or a very early agricultural application where they were still employing a "hit & miss" type governing system to control the engine speed rather than relying on the carburettor.

  11. A 1926-27 Model T cylinder head mounted coil box modified for some other application
  12. not what I was hoping for...
  13. On FB Marketplace in Edinburg, VA. Some good parts if youre restoring an early AA 1.5ton truck : wire wheels, a worm drive rear axle, LH E-brake, two-pedal auxillary transmission... Its even got DUAL generators! https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/345072100578215/?ref=search&referral_code=marketplace_search&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A795a1adb-6f5b-4f37-9d60-bea022432461
  14. Could be "T", but more likely, its for a Fordson Tractor
  15. Austria or Argentina? That oval badge-if it is displaying a standard country code- is for Republica Argentina. I have head that quite a few Austrians made their way to Argentina in the late 1940's...
  16. I Once again, keiser31 nailed it- its a 1937 GMC, but i dont think it started out as a truck. That rear top chop-off is just too abrupt to be a factory bob, especially in that late 1930's era when Aerodynamics and Art Deco were all the rage. The fellas over at Fisher Body woulda balked at being asked to build such an abomination and the G.M. design team leader who OK'd that hack-job woulda been shown the door by Mr. Earl himself! I think Gunsmoke is correct that it was originally a panel or carryall, modified into a truck cab. As to SMG's observation/concern over horizontal vs. vertical louvers in the hood side panels, it is an optical illusion fostered by the horizontal stainless steel trim pieces that (from a distance) obscure the underlying vertical louvers. On the stripped-down utilitarian models (such as the panel/ambulance below) you didnt get those shiny bits cluttering the view and the true method of ventilation-those high-riding vertical louvers- is revealed.
  17. I had one hanging on a '58 beetle. M-Man gives a good description of how one of those ever musty contraptions theoretically operated, but in my experience, it was about as effective as having the passenger randomly breathe on you while they were eating a popsicle.
  18. https://www.ebay.com/itm/283450727136?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=283450727136&targetid=1263094004826&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9017184&poi=&campaignid=11755693329&mkgroupid=122298872557&rlsatarget=pla-1263094004826&abcId=9300462&merchantid=114610410&gclid=Cj0KCQjw--GFBhDeARIsACH_kdYt7n1rXNmYx8APtiS2YWaVlByON6mFEyAfcj12HhQgLj-9RxXtZUoaAjaXEALw_wcB
  19. Its not from a tractor I recognize- at least not an American market model. They could be off of a truck, but I would think it would be a very heavy-duty machine, like an off-road dump truck or material handler. It is more likely they are off of a power unit of some type - a welder, a pump, the engine on a paver or a well driller or.... a few hundred other applications! What are the un-faded colours on the inside and out? That may provide a clue...
  20. A 1931 Lincoln dual-cowled phaeton. Possibly a Murphy body and aftermarket wheels??
  21. That worm-drive rear axle is from a 1917-1927 Ford Model TT 1 ton truck, or an early Model AA (1928) truck. The frame is also TT with the front crossmember and a few other bit and bobs removed or modified, but the inverted front axle looks to be from either a non-ford (due to the lateral spring mounts) or a 1949 thru mid 1960's Ford truck part, semi-rigidly attached with angle-iron radius rods and-- barbed wire ?????.
  22. or early Bronco... https://www.macsautoparts.com/1966-bronco-transfer-case-shift-knob-for-before-serial-830-001-51-850480-1.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=&scid=scplp51-850480-1&sc_intid=51-850480-1&gclsrc=aw.ds&gclid=Cj0KCQjwkZiFBhD9ARIsAGxFX8DCVvUl-7CIwZJD_Xr34D_Aw1jMAeCAFYElWSGWEP-_tcppofSdDtkaAsgnEALw_wcB
  23. https://www.dead.net/family-dog-gallery By the way, it is a 1951 to early '54 GMC. The '47-50 GMC and Chevrolet trucks didnt have the vent windows in the doors.
