  1. Great. Thanks very much! Any thoughts about that roadster body I posted a couple of days ago.
  2. Does anyone recognize this front bumper medallion. Mid to late twenties. I have the complete bumper but the distinctive central medallion is probably the key to its identity. It's about 4" long.
  3. Appears to be 1928ish - came from Kennewick, WA. Has some similarities to a 1928 LaSalle and others - especially the sides behind fenders. Is from a larger wheelbase car due to its size.
  4. BINGO. The rims are 1930 Chrysler Imperial, like this one I know of.
  5. I think it's the same. But here's one of my 1930 19" wire wheels - different cap.
  6. It's the same as the one in the photo I added. I have them on 4 1929 Packard cars. They are 8 lug, 20 " and 80 spokes. Not commercial. Cars.
  7. Packard 8 lug 1929-30. 8 lug 1929 is 20" and 8 lug 1930 is 19", Just check the measurements. I think you'll find it's 20".
  8. Would any one have a mate to this one? It's a big ask but...……………..
  9. Now need to find a left. There was one - loaned to someone never to be seen again. (Before I got it)
  10. Can someone confirm the identity. I was told years ago that this was a 1930 La Salle coupe rear quarter??
  11. Photo from the rear with badge removed.
  12. So what is this rack actually from anyone? I cannot use it and I don't want to scrap it if someone can use it?
  13. I have an amp gauge that does not suit my 28-29 cars so is for sale. $100 includes postage and packing. Paypal preferred. speedster1930@hotmail.com
  14. Thankyou. That's how it came from Nevada with some 745 parts. I will remove and sell separately.
  15. More "Clean up Finds". A Packard Luggage Rack. I have several 1928-30 Packards but this obviously doesn't suit any of them. If there's any interest, send me a PM or I am happy to trade for interesting 1928-30 parts. Located Australia but I am happy to package it up.
  16. I'm having a huge clean up and found that I have a Woodlite that I'll never use. So, it's being offered for sale here on the AACA first. It consists of a top and a bottom and includes the badge and jewell. I also have two cast tops - cast from aluminium - very smooth on the outside face and rough on the inner face. No reflector. I did buy two reproduction lenses on this site a few years ago but they are still en route to Australia. As a matter of interest a similar, but partial light, with 2 reflectors sold on EBAY yesterday for almost $US 1300. My price $1500 posted to the US or...……….. Paypal accepted. speedster1930@hotmail.com
  17. Send me a photo and I can confirm. Interestingly, there were other cars that used the 7 lug wheel centres like Packard ones but not with 19" rims. Chrysler 75's definitely did as a friend had Chrysler 75 wires and they shared the 7 lug wheel hub. I think they were 18's. I also believe Hudson may have too. Kean Thompson speedster1930@hotmail.com
  18. Three more photos: The first a 1929 Packard 20" 8 lug wheel The second a 1930 Packard 19" 8 lug wheel The third a 1930 Packard 19" wheel minus donut. (NOTE: except for diameter, the same appearance as the 20" wheels). NOTE: I AM ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MORE OF THESE, ESPECIALLY THE SMALL DONUT 1928 LIKE THE FOUR IN THE PREVIOUS POST.
  19. 1928 6 cylinder 526 ( 5th series and 126" wheelbase) - 8 lug 20" wheels, lugs visible when small donut / aluminium cap is on. 1928 8 cylinder 443 (4th series and 143" wheelbase CUSTOM 8 / Big 8 - ONLY ONE WHEELBASE IN 1928) - 8 lug 20" wheels, lugs visible when small donut / aluminium cap is on. 1929 - NO 6 CYLINDER CARS. Cars built in the early months (1902 cars) used 1928 wire wheels with the small donut and aluminium caps then changed to a larger donut with steel cap 1929 Standard 8 - 626 and 633 (126" and 133" wheelbase) - 8 lug 20" wheels, lugs visible when donut / steel cap is on. 1929 Custom / Deluxe 8 - 640 and 645 (140" and 145" wheelbase) - 8 lug 20" wheels, lugs visible when donut / steel cap is on. 1930 Standard 8 - 726 and 733 (127.5" and 134.5" wheelbase - 1.5 inches added to allow more space up front for water pump.) - 7 lug 20" wheels, lugs visible when donut / steel cap is on. 1930 Custom / Deluxe 8 - 740 and 745 (140" and 145" wheelbase) - 8 lug 19" wheels, lugs visible when donut / steel cap is on. NOTE: From 1931 and 8th series, the lug nuts were inside the wheel hub and therefore not visible when the hubcap was on. Packard referred to its bigger 8 cars as Custom 8 and Deluxe 8 Here are some 1928 small donut wheels. I'll add some 1929 and 1930 when I get into the workshop later today.
  20. Not the correct wheels. You need 20", 8 stud rims with the lugs outside the wheel hub. 1929 and 1930 Packard wire wheels use longer wheel nuts than the steel disc wheels. In 1930, the standard 8 cars used different wire wheels - 20" 7 lug. In 1930, the Big 8's used 8 lug but 19". I'll get a photo of my wires later and post. They are hard to find and can be expensive. By the way, I did see a 626 coupe photo somewhere recently and I think it had the wrong wheels and maybe something else was wrong also - cannot recall without revisiting that photo.
