  1. To clarify, I posted the ad on the forum on May 9, 2002. The scammer sent me an email to an address I posted on the forum. I learned my lesson and would not put an email address in a post ( or craiglist or Hemmings, etc.). Of course, this ad was posted 17 years ago and I, and perhaps others, were more naive about the internet in the past than I am now after getting requests from Nigerian Princes and the like. Steve
  2. In 2002 I ran an ad requested parts for 1929 Packard 633 Victoria Coupe. Two days ago (17 years later) I received an email Saying that the person "Paul" was parting out a 1929 Packard and did I still need parts. I emailed back and said I did need some Packard parts and what did he have and how much were they. He sent the following and with the photo of the car" "Just attached the picture of my car below , I`m breaking the complete for parts , since you need some parts there is no problem , I want you to send me the complete list of parts that you need , so that I`II will give you prices for them . Please I`II also need your exact shipping address to enable me figure out the shipping fees to your door step . Hope to hear from you soon next." He also sent this photo: I asked him where he is located and how much he wanted for the car. He responded: "I understand but the engine is smoking, and again dad just pass away few months ago, the car belongs to him. There is no space for the car in the yard, so let me know what you need from the car. I'm in Pensyviana, I'll accept just $3,500 because the engine smoke , So let have your exact shipping address." I asked him for additional photos. He responded: " On 6/21/19, paul haggis <paulhaggis78@gmail.com> wrote: I'm working now, I'll do that when I get home, but hope my price is fair enough? Also were is your address, so that my agent can figure out the shipping fees to your door step. Hope to hear from you soon next." I said that if I bought the car that I would come and get it myself so there was no need for his agent to get involved ( I had decided when I saw the price that this was a scam) and have not heard from him since. I also found this very same car for sale in Hemmings for $85,000. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/packard/eight/2281756.html Be careful, there are scams out there. Steve
  3. Send me your email address and I will send you PDF files of what I have. I know that the cover is missing and there may be other pages missing but I hope this will be a start for you. Steve
  4. AJ, I have ridden in a Franklin V12 many times. In fact, I believe this is the very car I rode in when it belonged to Len Urlik (same owner as your Reo Royale). We used to go to dinner every week and we often took this car. I can't read the serial number in the photo but Len's Franklin was serial # 73-10315L23. Steve
  5. I have a 1937 Stutz Pak-Age-Car. It has a Hercules 4 cylinder engine. 1937 was the last year of the Stutz Pak-Age-Car. It was sold to Auburn (Lycoming) and then Diamond T. There are about seven Stutz Pak-Age-Cars that I know of. Most of the surviving ones seem to be the Diamond T version which are slightly different. Steve
  6. Here is a photo of a 1930 LaSalle phaeton that I bought in January 2019 after chasing it since 1961. The previous owner bought in 1951. It is totally original never having been painted or upholstered. Steve
  7. This is the correct Black Hawk instrument panel. Steve

    Barn Find!

    This car has a bronze worm gear differential. Do not put any oil in it containing sulfur. It will eat the bronze gears. Steve
  9. Ed, Thanks. I got the tail light stanchion from him but didn't realize he had other parts. I will contact him when he gets back. Steve
  10. I am looking for a driver side outside door handle, the advance/retard knob for the dash, and the dash ignition switch (preferably with key) for my 1930 LaSalle Fleetwood phaeton. Does anyone have these parts? Thank you. Steve
  11. Thank you for the diagram. It looks like this image came from Art Aseltine's website which seems to be no longer in existence. Would it be possible to send a copy at a much higher resolution? The image that is posted is too small to read and when I enlarge it it becomes too pixilated to be legible. What kind of car do you have that you are looking for this carburetor, a Stearns-Knight possibly? Steve
  12. A reproduction was found. (thank you Ed).
  13. Does anyone have a parts list or diagram for a Tillotson SP-15B carburetor or does anyone have SP-15 carburetor they would like to sell? Thank you. Steve
  14. Does anyone have a 1930 LaSalle Tail Light Stanchion to sell? It looks like this: Thank you. Steve
