  1. Hi, all-- up for sale is a pretty nice original grille emblem for a '37 Lincoln Zephyr V-12. Right now, there is only other one, on eBay, in considerably worse condition, for $300.... I'd like to get $250 plus mail for this one. It's really a pretty nice original emblem... even comes with the original mounting hardware. Grab it while you can! If interested, please e-mail me direct at blown394olds@yahoo.com as I do not use the PM system here much. Thanks!
  2. Have a good-sized stack of Sam's photofacts (pictures, schematics, service info) for USA-made car radios, mostly 1950's. $8 plus mail will take the entire stack. USA destinations only, please. Not worth the trouble to do do an international shipment for 8 bucks... If interested, please e-mail me direct at blown394olds@yahoo.com as I do not use the PM system here. Thanks,
  3. Found a few more antique automotive books in storage... these are "hundred-year-old" hardbound textbooks that show many in-depth details about how cars of the period were constructed and operated. I didn't look, but considering the dates, I bet many things are relevant to late 19-'teens cars as well as the early 1920's. Actually, one on the list WAS written during the 'teens and goes back to a 1913 copyright, so might possibly be relevant nearly all the way back to the beginning of automotive technology. Great books! Very rare to find 96- to 107-year old automotive technical books now... --"I.C.S. Reference Library", (International Textbook Co.), copyrights from 1913-1918. (about 750 pages) --"Automobile Transmission, Mechanism, Lubrication, and Tires", Internat'l Library of Technology (Internat'l Textbook Co.), 1924 (about 450 pages) --"Automobile Operation and Repair" (same publisher as above), 1924 (about 450 pages) --"Gasoline Automobiles" (same publisher as above), 1924 (about 450 pages) --"The Gasoline Automobile", Elliott/Consoliver (McGraw-Hill), 1924, (513 pages) These tended to be hardbound collections of automotive technical correspondence school literature back then. THIS is where you learn how to work on those really old antique cars... just like the mechanics of the day. The dates shown above were the actual print dates of these hardbound books. One more book: "Doings In General" Vol. 2, 1926 (about 450 pages), collected reprints of the monthly magazine published by employees of the General Petroleum Corporation. Not much tech, but cool old photos and perhaps some historical insights. I probably paid $35/each for these, 25 years ago.... or around $200. I am offering all 6 books for $65 plus mail. If interested, please e-mail me direct at blown394olds@yahoo.com as I do not really use the PM system here. Thanks!
  4. Have an original used radio delete plate from a 1968 full-size Chevy passenger. Very rare part! $25 plus mail. If interested, please hit me up at blown394olds@yahoo.com Thanks!
  5. Have three thick catalogs from automotive supply houses, 1920's era. Cool old catalogs, chock full of pictures of all sorts of stuff. Cost me quite a bit back in the '90's (probably cost me about $80), but will sell all three here for just $30. Plus mailing costs. If interested, please contact me direct at blown394olds@yahoo.com Thanks!
  6. This stack is no longer available! Thank you and happy motoring...
  7. Hi, all-- Up for sale is a big stack of antique automotive literature. A bunch of really old stuff, much is 90+ years old. Some real rare stuff in this collection. I had collected this stuff back in the mid to late '90's when I was trying to set up a restoration shop, but I never got that off the ground. This just surfaced in storage, so I am passing it on. $250 takes all. Probably half of what I have in it, in all honesty. Add mailing costs to that. Located in California. Can mail within the USA via Media Mail. Hit me up direct at blown394olds@yahoo.com as I do not use the PM system here. Also please note, I am not new to this forum, I have posted here in the past under user name Blownolds... but I forgot my password and got locked out.... Thanks!
