  1. Here's a 66 or 56 Chrysler from the same yard.
  2. They're still out there... visited a U-Pull-It junkyard near New Ringold, PA yesterday. I was surprised to see quite a few cars from the 30's, 40's, 50's, and 60's. Below are an early 50's Packard and what I think is a 54 Chrysler.
  3. I have no ties to this auction, but if anyone here is into Stanley Steamers, there's an auction with a lot of parts: https://cabinfeverauctions.bidwrangler.com/ui/auctions/50558
  4. The engine should be nearly silent. Not a Rolls Royce, but you shouldn't hear taps or knocks. One important point between the Special and Roadmaster, is the Roadmaster has better gearing for high speeds. A Special's comfortable cruising speed is 40-50 mph. It can do 55-60 OK, but that's pushing it a bit. The Roadmaster with a bigger engine and better gearing can cruise at 55-60 with ease. They're not exciting cars (like a Jeep), but they are grand and graceful cars.
  5. This is the first early T-Bird I've seen that I really liked.
  6. As a temporary fix, you can cut down a 1940's Chevy distributor. I know it works for the Standard 6.
  7. 1915 and 1916 bodies are just about identical. However, many 1919 through 1921 cars have been made to look like1915 cars. The easiest way to spot these is to look inside the cowl, above the coil box. The horizontal piece of metal there should go straight across. If it actually a later car, there will be a half circle cutout for the later radiator brace rod. The rear for 1915 was a one-year-only design. It has the cast iron center like later rears, but doesn't have the reinforcing ribs on the backing plates. But the reinforcing ribs were added in October 1915. So the car you a
  8. The 1954 Special 2-door sedan was a learning experience. It had a manual transmission that was bad. I looked and looked for a replacement (this was back before the internet). I finally gave up and sold the car at a loss. The next month I found a transmission...
  9. I have a set of 1926 - 1927 Buick Master 6 headlights leftover from a 1926 Master 6 I had a few years back. The rims have been nicely chromed, but are not the correct nickel finish. The buckets do not have any dents, but they do have significant stress cracks. One bucket is missing the adjusting screw in the back. The mirrors are OK, but should be re-silvered. Both bulb sockets are missing. No lenses. They're listed on EBay Item # 122313436004 http://www.ebay.com/itm/122313436004?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Mr Earl,
  10. I've had good experiences taking the old bearing to an industrial bearing distributor. Calling up the corporate line generally doesn't help. Arriving at the retail point in person with the old bearing generally will get you some assistance. They may not have the same thing, but might be able to get you something that will work. Sometimes the guys enjoy the challenge of finding a replacement for a 101 year old bearing. If that doesn't work, you may need to find a talented machinst who can make something that is available work in your application.

  13. Thanks guys! Now just have to find it a new owner. While a Dodge Brothers touring is on my "someday list" I don't have room to keep everything.
