  1. hello folks I have a Hudson 1925/26 with the six cork plates and plain plates , I have re corked these and faced them down with about 1 mm exposed i cannot seem to get the clutch to release enough to have the main shaft stationary to allow gear selection from rest , There are springs that fit between the plates that i am not sure of their correct placing, I have a manual but it does not show the springs I think this may be part of the problem . As folks familiar with this set up will know there is limited space in the clutch housing for expansion which limits thickness of corks and
  2. hello there my suggestion would be to go to home hardware store and purchase two cheap gauze sieve strainers such as used in kitchen cooking these have the bulbous shape already , then carefully measure the opening size of your horn trumpet perhaps by making a cardboard template that is just tight or oversize a little to get diameter then cut out the centre of each strainer to match measurement ( Scissors will Do ) then fit them in tight so the edges hold the gauze in place , i guess you could add a couple of drops of good glue like araldite on the edges to be sure ,? if you find the rig
  3. thanks for your comments I think you have a beautiful car here ..If I might comment but not critique I think a well chosen colour for the lining on the accents would really lift the car more and Chrome wheel rings do nothing its still a beauty l

  5. thank you for your complimentary remarks i just joined the site and did some posts today its great to have a chance to share and discuss so i guess i will get addicted? yes the old car I bought to restore this as you see, it had these attractive factory order Buffalo center locks wheels fitted which was one of the deciding factors in acquiring the donor car . this was a right hand drive factory export new to NZ in I think 1926 , but with the approx right chassis length etc etc i thought we could scale this to look right. I reside in Arrowtown NZ and the body frame ( southland Be
  6. well that is a cute pair indeed a beautiful girl and a beautiful Auburn ..Im never sure whether I like the Phaeton or the Cabriolet the most ? but I do love your colour scheme choice. I guess if I had choice it would be a fleet of 31/32 Speedster / cabriolet/ phaeton and a nice sedan for wet days too !!!😃
  7. heres a fun pix that clearly illustrates that owning an Auburn is a definite advantage when it comes to attracting the fairer sex ...only wish i discovered this 40 years ago !!! ha ha. this is my old Auburn at the Arrowtown Festival NZ with the beautiful "Buckingham Belles" getting ready for a spin around town ,as you can see they are all so happy in anticipation of takimng a ride in a "real" car Designer Al Leamy with E l Cords direction produced what I think are the most dramatic in an era of austerity . love to see some more Auburn /cord pix simiiar hope you en
  8. I am building this Special on Hudson Super six 1925 running gear , as you may imagine it started life as a four door sedan , I purchased the car in what we would call "reduced Circumstances" and being a big Stutz Fan I thought rather than waste the bones I could build something myself for fun and personal enjoyment something that loosely resembles the wonderful Stutz bearcat of the twenties, I do so in the knowledge that it would not profess to be ever a copy rather a special . My friends have dubbed it the "Stutson" being a play on words between my own name Sutton and Stutz!!! Anyw
  9. Hello from Arrowtown NZ here is a pix with my car a 1931 Auburn 898A which I purchased in Victoria BC in 2006 . this car was sold new in Ontario By McDonell Mackie on 18/3/31 it is a great old car quite original we have essentially just gone through the mechanicals and fitted a two speed Columbia axle .etc it is I find quite modern to drive apart from the infamous ""steeldraulic" braking system !!! it was quite an adventure travelling to Canada and shipping back to NZ but we love it !!
