  1. nice 615. Those fluid in a tube things are a bugger to fix. most guys over here have gone electric. find a gauge that has a face that matches and work with it. I think the one in our 610 tourer was out of the 70s GM partsbin. Looks just right. the sedan runs a notched broomstick
  2. its an Austin. Without a doubt (I own an Austin 7)
  3. the other dead give away is the 615 had one more lug nut on the wheels than the 612. The brake drums were also slightly bigger on the 615 than the 612. I am going to agree with you on the 615 because those drums really fill the wheels. Part of the problem you have is the early 1930 model 612s ran the 115 wheelbase and had the longer bonnet of the 615 with the 1929 Grill, so unless you can see the support bar or count the lug nuts, you really cant tell 612 from 615. As for the rear door, they are exactly the same. The body from bulkhead back is bolt on between 612 a
  4. Interesting, early Wheels, but the latter pinned bumpers..
  5. parked my 1928 Graham Paige sedan at a car show, had the front and back doors open to show the interior. a couple on their 80s wander over and have a look, I just so happened to be heading into the car to get something, and watched her nudge his side with her elbow, while looking at the back seat, and then say to him, "Remember that". I had to turn and walk away. There was no way I was going to keep a straight face. My mother was also asked if she brought it new (its 10 years older than her) She wasn't happy, we all laughed though
  6. they were both 3 and 4 speed depending on the model. Basically the "poverty pack" ran a three speed, the rest ran a 4 speed. these were all non-synchro boxes. Synchro didnt come into Grahams until sometime around '34 I think.
  7. What does the Radiator look like? This looks like a 1930 Graham Paige 612 to me. I thought the second series didn't have the sun-visor (I could be wrong). Either was it was basically a 1929 612 on a 615 chassis. I am loving those big centre wires. I have a set for my 1929 612. I know they were not available in 1929, but I want them anyhow they go with the small centre wires on my 610
  8. I have a sales brochure at home somewhere from 1930. The standard six was basically the 612 from 1930 (So the 115 inch wheelbase, but 3 speed transmission). From memory The factory had the 2 and 4 door sedan, 4 door tourer (also known as a Pheaton), 2 Passenger Coupe and roadster, I am pretty sure the coupe and roadster were available in either business (boot hinge at top) or with a dickey/rumble seat. Though outside body builders, exports often used outside body builders, would build you whatever you liked. Note "De-luxe" was a trim upgrade. I see the above mentions a Town sedan, not sure
  9. another good indicator of year is the brakes. Internal or external brakes (614 external, 615 internal) Also the instrument panels were very different 614 was an oval (different from the 610, more like a Paige one) and the 615 was a kind of rectangle insert with the "rose" pattern (same as a 612)
  10. I will have to compare my 612 and 615 radiators to check if they are interchangeable.... This may explain my odd radiator that's a mix of 1928 and 1929.... I always thought it was a mash up repair (may still be ).. 614 would have a different raised section around the hole for the grill insert whereas the 1929s just rolled into the grill insert
  11. Show me the front, the 614 and 615 had different Radiators.
  12. simple rule of thumb, if it contained liquid, drain, flush and refresh. While your at it, have a close look at the brakes, make sure all you linkages don't have too much play. would also look at replacing the tyres (rubber doesn't age well and tyres are a safety item). Then look at any other rubber bits
  13. Interesting, its running 1929 Bumpers and taillight, 1928 The bumperette's didn't have the centre pins. They had over riders that held that end in. also the taillight was a simple round one like a dodge/chrysler. I will see if I can find a photo or the rear of my sedan (my tourer uses the earlier wrap around bumpers).
  14. 45, weirdly missed McClaren and some other that I had never seen
