  1. It will be on it's way in the near future as a Christmas gift, enjoy some good reading. Also included is a little info on the '09 AA that Jeff also purchased. Bob
  2. Get a photo of one you like and have it remade from current steel. Or fabricate yourself, much easier and (a bonus) much safer.
  3. Nice to hear from you Phil. I recognize the slow moving assembly line, mine stopped when I got into my high eightys. I still have the '05 paperwork mentioned above send me a PM if you think any of it or all would be helpful to you. Bob
  4. That is my Maxwell model L that Jeff has for sale. I researched the Maxwell company for many months and kept a very large record of the car's restoration and history. Also have a copy of the original parts catalog that Maxwell supplied in the day. All of this served me well in the restoration as it was a challenge when I purchased the car from the man that bought it from the original owners son. It had set outdoors for 70 plus years occasionally driven for parades. The son used to stop at my shop on occasion to check on " Dad's car " he was in his 90's at the last visit. I promised him a ride as soon as it was done , but a few months before the restoration was complete he passed. Many fond memories of one of my many restorations. Also I would like to say I bought it about 30 miles from my home in the same town it was sold new in. Bob Mahoney
  5. Greg, did you find the ferrule installation tool you were looking for ? If not PM me I think I can help you. Bob
  6. Hi Bernie, yes a lot of fun, but couldn't put it in storage and drive and show the Selden. All the cream 80C s had the green door saddles like Lucy's. - Bob
  7. The '36 80C had a black Dash per factory specs. The shade is listed in my factory brochure. Also the instrument panel and glove box door was marbelized with a light gray woodgrain. I have many fond memories of traveling to Texas and purchasing a complete rustfree old restoration for $5000. And spending a 1/2 hour visit with B B King at a rest stop in Oklahoma. This was in 1982. - Bob
  8. My brother Chris has a complete 8 cylinder Packard engine w/ 44,000 miles. Complete as running with all components when removed from car. Has bell housing, and transmission. You may reach him at 1-585-259-0170.
  9. $um Fun, Check with Fred Hoch in New Jersey, He is a top Mercer authority and restorer. Bob
  10. Bill, I have had one of those gadgets that tells you stay on the center line for years, it's called a "wife". Sometimes I leave her home. Bob
  11. You are on the right track now Paul, that is utilizing your skills. Seldenguy
  12. There were two (2) radios available for the 1936 Buick. The one you show above is the deluxe model of the two. The standard lower level is vertical with no overlapping of trim panel and completely differently from the deluxe. Both are shown in the 1936 accessory catalog, which also shows the standard and deluxe hot water heaters.
  13. I had to fabricate a tension idler to get the required surface of a 2" start/gen pulley to function properly, It was a few years ago but as I remember the wrap was approximately around 200-250 degrees on the generator . I have since sold the car, but it has popped up on several tours, I assume still functioning. Phil, it was also a poly serpentine belt. Bob
  14. I am not going to be much help with the car identification, but the license plate is a 1911 dealer ( M is for manufacturer ) . The color is maroon with white letters. With 1911 plates the car can't be newer, and obviously looks older. Bob
  15. Al, you mentioned you need a parabolic mirror, but failed to mention the size you needed ? I have a few of them surplus to my needs, I may be able to help. Bob
