  1. There were two articles about this car in Special Interest Autos back in the 90s. You can read the articles online on Hemmings' website: https://www.hemmings.com/stories/2012/04/22/sia-flashback-found-the-real-lost-cord-part-1 https://www.hemmings.com/stories/2012/04/29/sia-flashback-found-the-real-lost-cord-part-2
  2. The cigarette lighter and the other plastic piece look like those found at the bottom of 1939 Cadillac and LaSalle dashboards. Any chance of getting a photo of the wording on the plastic? Do they both say, "Lighter"? Jeff
  3. The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles in Pennsylvania has a couple of Daniels cars. Perhaps they could be of assistance to you? https://boyertownmuseum.org/ Jeff
  4. I, too, enjoy the How to Restore ANTIQUE and CLASSIC CARS book. Discovered it in my grandparents house in the mid-70s when I was about 13 and been hooked on it ever since. I have two copies - just because. One thing that interests me about the book's contents (other than the cars) is comparing the accepted practices at the time with what we know today. Example: the use of benzene or carbon tetrachloride as a cleaning agent. Great book for sure! Jeff
  5. Does anyone have an old Moog suspension catalog that would be willing to look up a part number for me? The part number is K-39. I believe this to be a lower outer suspension pin kit for late-30s to early-40s GM, but would like to know for what specific years and models. Thank you in advance! Jeff
  6. Yes, the bumpers and the entire front ensemble (grille, headlamps, horns). Taillights are also different. I don't believe the production cars (available from '34 to '37) had the recessed license plate on the trunk, either. Interestingly, this body style (job 5799) could be had on either a V-8, V-12, or V-16 chassis. Cadillac & LaSalle Club members have researched the cars produced and whether they survived. That research is not currently at my fingertips. It was done roughly 30 years ago. Here are links to photos of a '34 V-16 survivor for comparison: https://www.flickr.com/photos/96212023@N00/albums/72157617185027713 https://www.flickr.com/photos/96212023@N00/albums/72157622526254814 This '34 is believed to be in Australia currently and undergoing restoration.
  7. 1933 Cadillac V-16 Aerodynamic Coupe. 1of 1. It was Cadillac's Worlds Fair car. The car is not known to have survived. Not sure about what it is mounted on, though. HTH, Jeff
  8. 6953 is the Special Order number. Those numbers were assigned sequentially by Cadillac. The SO number has nothing to do with the actual trim or paint codes. It has been my experience that whenever there is an SO number on the body tag, the trim and paint codes are omitted from the body tag. The details of the SO could possibly be found on the factory invoice (not the case for all SOs) which you can get from the GM Heritage Center for $50. You are likely correct about the leather interior being the special order. HTH, Jeff
  9. Michael Funeral Chapel. It's seen better days. There was a basketball court on the second floor. So sad...
  10. Mr. Gosden has a good idea. West Manchester is in Preble County. Here is the URL for the Preble County Historical Society: http://www.preblecountyhistoricalsociety.com/index.html . I hope this helps. Jeff
  11. I can't tell you how amazed I am to see a post about the Geeting Auto Company and that artifacts still survive from it! I am a 1962 model and spent my very early years in West Manchester. My mother's family has history in the town from the early 1900s until my grandmother passed in 2010. I vividly remember the Geeting Auto Company. You are correct that it was one of the oldest Ford dealers in Ohio - some claim the oldest, but I couldn't verify that. In the building overhang on the right side of your photo, there were Sinclair gasoline pumps back in the day. Harvey Geeting lived across the street from the building and at one time owned a 1903 Ford which I recall getting to see one time. I believe the car went to the Preble County Historical Society when he passed. Somewhere I still have a newspaper article about him and his car. Thank you, sir, for bringing back the memories!
  12. Definitely '39. 40s are different. See photos for comparison. HTH, Jeff
  13. You are correct regarding the paint and trim numbers - black with black leather. 7 is likely the top color - it would have been either tan (standard) or black (optional) or blue (optional). I'm sorry I don't have a chart which tells which number correlates to which color top. And it would have been a fabric top - not vinyl. For carpet, it would have been a rubber mat with carpeted inserts. According to the Master Parts Book, the same color of carpet inserts were used regardless of interior color - but the book doesn't say what the color was. Have you gotten the 1939 Cadillac file from the GM Heritage Center? See this page: https://gmheritagecenter.com/gm-heritage-archive/vehicle-information-kits.html and pick the 1939 Cadillac link. Sorry I can't be of more help. Jeff
  14. According to my 1942 Master Body Parts Book, trim code 49 for 1937 is green leather - specifically for a series 60 or 65 car. HTH, Jeff
