  1. It is a 1975. The '75 had the black rubber bumper guards front and back. I had a 1974 with a 350 and automatic. It was a very nice driving Corvette, but under-powered. I heard these models as boulevard cruisers. I agree with that description.
  2. As you said, there isn't much to see to adequately identify it. It isn't a 1910 as the radiator would be "rounded" rather than flat across the top. Also, with the Solar Model 148L headlamps it would either be a late 1911 or early 1912. While I do have a lot of information on who owned Loziers over the years, this one has me stumped. Hopefully someone will provide other photos of this car.
  3. Yes I do. It was sold to a man in CA who drove it and broke the crankshaft. It was sold to another CA man wo had a new crankshaft made and got it running again. It is a Model 72 T-head, and can be found on the cover of a HCCA magazine a few years back. I don't mean to be elusive about who owns the Loziers I am speaking about, but without their permission, I want to be thoughtful in maintaining their privacy.
  4. No. Dr. Hunsberger's Lozier is the green one shown elsewhere on this topic.
  5. It looks even better now. It is residing in the Atlanta GA area. The owner is extremely satisfied with the performance of this Lozier. I actually had the pleasure of driving this car back in 1969 when Dr. Hunsberger still owned it. Quite the car.
  6. The blue and white Lozier is part of the collection located in Hickory Corners. The black one is now painted blue and is the same Lozier pictured below it. This 1914 Lozier is now in a collection in Russia. The yellow Lozier shown is a 1915 Model 82, made into a Meadowbrook from a chassis found in Delaware many years ago. It is now located in the Tupelo museum in Mississippi.
  7. Yes, this is the 1913 Model 72 Lakewood Torpedo, T-head, owned by Charley Parker and now owned by his family. I personally visited Charley one time and he provided me the history of the car and where he found it. Interesting it came from Turner Valley Alberta, and my last name is Turner, but no relation. It did go to CA a few years ago, for motor work. It has been done and is now back with the family.
  8. The Bothwell Lozier was sold in 1972 to the Harrah collection. It was displayed for several years and then sold during one of their several liquidation sales. The current owner is the Nethercutt collection. They restored it and put a Lakewood body on it. It also now sports wire wheels. As I understand, the "limo" body is still in their storage. Ask me about any other Loziers, I can probably let you know their history and current status. There are about 40 Loziers known, and only two or three have changed hands and I have lost track of the current owners. Does anyone know of and Loziers? I have maintained a list of owners for more than 40 years and besides a complete 1913 Model 77 Montclair, I also have a lot of parts of many years, hoping to someday put another one together.
  9. Yes, Lozier had the Briarcliff model. The blue and white Lozier Briarcliff shown here is a 1911. It is owned by Fred Hoch. Corky Coker had his model J, 1910 Meadow Brook at the Atlanta meet. Next to Fred's Lozier is the 1914 Lozier (maroon) owned by Todd Lozier. We had our 1913 Lozier Fairmont touring at this Lozier gathering too, but it's not shown here. The speedster in the photo is not a Lozier.
  10. Yes, the photo is of a 1913 Lozier Fairmont touring. I am very familiar with this car as I am the current owner of it! I am certain this photo was taken in or around Virginia City, Montana. At the time this photo was taken it was owned by Charles Bovey. At one time he was a state senator and he and his wife were responsible for developing the tourist city known as Virginia City. This Lozier was found on a farm they purchased in White Sulphur Springs and was a part of their antique automobile collection they also had in Virginia City. I am attaching a photo of our Lozier where it was displayed at a Concours at the Lemay Collection in Tacoma, WA. I live in a suburb of Seattle. I have owned this Lozier since 2000. It is the only 1913 Model 77 left. It is original except it was repainted many years ago. The 1913 had "flat fenders" while the 1914s had "crowned" fenders.
  11. How much are you asking for this starter? Thanks for your reply.
  12. Just found this posting. The Lozier shown is actually a Model 84. It was the least expensive Lozier built starting in 1914. It has a four cylinder engine. There is one left and another being restored from a collection of parts.
  13. The Automobile Quarterly, Volume four, 1969, has great articles on this race. There are other publications that have also weighted in on this race too. I am biased, but I believe the Lozier driven by Ralph Mulford actually won the race. It can't just be a coincidence the Marmon was declared the winner, and it was built in Indianapolis, the same city the race was held! In all reality it probably wouldn't have mattered for the future of the Lozier Automobile Company as most of the entrants, including Marmon, are not producing cars today. The Lozier was NOT a purpose built racer like most of the other entrants were, including the Marmon. I don't think Marmon produced any six cylinder Marmons. Lozier built both four and six cylinder models. Looking forward to reading others comments.
