  1. *** This is a current picture of the 1913 Lozier Lakewood Torpedo. Yes, the car is still with the family of whom I've been acquainted with since the mid 1990's... The car has been restored including the engine but to the best of my knowledge it hasn't seen any time on the road since the early 1970's. She's comfortably tucked away... for now...

  3. Hi Glenn, I was lucky enough to purchase a 1915 runabout /roadster a year and a half ago from a local collector. Part of the inventory that came with the car was the last known owners list for the Simplex line of cars. I have a copy of it in PDF and could email it to you if you like. It was last compiled in 1991... In researching the car and the owners list, I was able to track down the son of the fellow that compiled the directory. His father, now deceased, was apparently very taken with the Simplex brand (sounded like almost an obsession) and he spent YEARS chasing dow
  4. I have NO idea. The closest I can come that from the little working knowledge I have, the '29 and '30 were pretty much if not completely the same. So... if a '26 matches the '29, we'd be in business, but I won't hold my breath... Copper
  5. I am currently in the process of restoring a 1930 Chrysler Imperial two door convertible. Unfortunately the rear axle has a painfully low gear set, 4.90-1. I'm looking for either a high speed Crown & Pinion or the entire axle with a higher ratio set of gears. Also, while the transmission housing fits, it is not the correct one for this car. I'd very much appreciate any leads on obtaining these items. Thanks very much !!! BC_Copper
  6. Sorry gents... that should be for a 1930 60 series...
  7. Folks, I've broken the mounting bracket on my (pot metal) fuel pump and am hoping someone out there has one for sale.
