  1. Did a little research. There seems to be at least two other 1917 White touring left. One is in the Person museum in LA and another in the Yellowstone museum. Others?? It does look to be original.
  2. That looks like a non-original cat to me. I suspect it was something made in the 50s much like the "curved dash Olds" made with modern engines. I notice the use of plywood, when this probably wasn't used in an original automobile. Others' thoughts?
  3. Any updates on this Chandler? I am hoping it turns up without any damage.
  4. Chris, I think Harold would be pleased that you are now the owner of his Chandler. Want to come up to my place and work on my two 1914 Chandlers? LOL Take care my friend.
  5. I know of a Pickwick motor in a shipping crate. The owner said it was built by Pierce Arrow.
  6. The picture just above is a speedster made from a Lozier. Looks to be a four cylinder, probably a Model 46 as evidenced by the coil that extends into the engine area, (look at the top of the firewall). Obviously non original Lozier fenders. I would love to obtain any Lozier parts from this or any other Lozier chassis! This has a T-head motor. The Gemmer steering column and steering wheel are evidenced too. The horn is not factory, but the seats appear to be correct for a Briarcliff.
  7. 1910 Lozier Model I, 6 cylinder Lozier with an auxillary-starter mounted in front. This is a Briarcliff body.
  8. I called the number that was listed and spoke to "Nelson". He said I was the fourth person who had called him about the motor/chassis. He said it was located in Van Nuys, CA. He said it was in on property that was being cleared and it would take a crane to get it out of the location. He said he didn't own the stuff he had gone there to purchase a Model A Ford roadster but wasn't able to purchase that. He was looking around the property and found the Locomobile. He said he didn't know older cars but was able to identify the motor because of the name cast into the heads. He said is was still in a chassis and both the front and rear axles were there. He didn't know of the price but would be trying to obtain serious offers so the "owner" can get the most for it. He said he would send me a few mores pictures he had taken. He said he would send me text photos. Unfortunately, he said he would send them to me after I hung up. I said send them by e-mail, but he said he couldn't.(???) The next day it dawned on me since I had called him on my land line, I wouldn't be getting any test message that way. I didn't write down his phone number to call him back on my cell phone, and by then his ad was gone. As I said he mentioned I was the fourth to call him. The first was of course Jay Leno! I did notice from the one photo it was a 6 cylinder and was still in a frame. I noticed it appeared to be left had drive so I'm thinking this would make it about 1916 or later. Correct? Anyway, I do hope someone had better luck in dealing with him. I wasn't after another project, but I have had prior success in obtaining motors for early cars. I have found the following motors and sent them on their was to complete early cars: 1908 Thomas-Detroit, 1918 Kissel, 1910 Oldsmobile Limited, 1914 Lozier, and a 1911 Pierce-Arrow Model 48. I don't consider myself a flipper, but these helped my with funds for my cars/projects. I would like to hear from anyone else who contacted Nelson and to learn if the motor/chassis has found a new home.
  9. Mystery car looks like a Peerless. 1908 or 09?
  10. Flathead Ford distributor. Missing the sides that were for the wiring harness to sparkplugs.
  11. The car at the lower right is a Lozier. I say it is a 1910 Model H, 4 cylinder Briarcliff. The length of the hood and the seat over the running board is a give away.
  12. Item number three is a 1930-31 Model A Ford brake light switch.
  13. Very cool. It is an accessory steering wheel. It is not an original Lozier steering wheel.
  14. I agree the car on the left is a 1908 Lozier touring. The shape of the radiator is the giveaway. I have been interested in Loziers for more than 50 years. I have a lot of literature on all years of Lozier. I own a 1913 Lozier Model 77 Montclair touring. I also own many early Lozier parts and am always looking for anything Lozier. Is the car on the right an Interstate?

    Looking to buy any available Lozier parts. What do you have? Mike Turner Seattle WA 206-246-2895
  16. There is another one like this listed on Ebay, but a whole lot less. It is only $1990. and they want $44.00 for shipping. Note it includes a snake on the "helmet" too.
  17. I think it is a Chalmers. Around 1910. The body style is a "Toy Tonneau".
  18. After Lozier began building cars in Detroit, the BOD pushed Lozier off the BOD and out of the company. Shortly after that seven of the Lozier senior officials left Lozier and formed the Chandler automobile company. Originally they wanted to call it the "Emise", after the marketing manager, Charles Emise but he wasn't in favor of that so they named the company after Frederic Chandler. In fact the first literature for Chandlers list the seven individuals by name and state for each their position with the Lozier company, e.g. …"formerly with the Lozier automobile company". The first Chandlers were almost duplicates of the 1913 Model 77 Lozier. If this had happened today, they probably would have been brought up on charges of "manufacturing espionage". Lots of things were in fact different, but the resemblance is definitely there.
  19. I bought the mostly complete 1914 Model 15B from the Harold Wintz estate in Iowa. Already went there and brought it back home to Seattle WA. It is only missing the correct tail light, which was also used on other cars of that period. I also have another 1914 Chandler Model 15 that is mostly complete but needs all new wood. The chassis are almost identical, but the bodies are different. Chandlers are a direct descendant of the 1913 Lozier Model 77 touring which I also have. Now I just have to get busy, and put my priorities in order. A T- head speedster will just have to wait. I will keep my eyes open should parts show up though.
  20. Nothing has come up for sale. Just bought another 1914 Chandler so my "project" for a T head speedster will be put on hold for a while. Thanks for your interest. I enjoy reading your posts on your Locomobile.
  21. Regarding the two 1914 Chandlers, both were sold. The 1914 restored Model 15 was sold to a collector in CA. the 1914 Model 15B was sold to a collector in WA state. Both new owners belong to the Chandler club and will cherish their new Chandler automobiles.
  22. I think it might actually be for a R C Hupp. Just my guess. RCH was what they used.
