  1. I think it is mid-1920s Chevrolet. Model T Fords used a similar rim during 1926-1927, but the valve stem was located 1/2 way between the two mounting lugs. I believe Chevrolet used this rim where the valve stem is not centered between the lugs.
  2. SOLD to a very happy and appreciative new owner. I am glad this important engine found a great,new home. Stay tuned for more exciting engines-mostly prewar- to be offered from this same collection.
  3. Model As with similar Martin Perry bodies are rare but occasionally appear. A Chevrolet would be a lot rarer. Congratulations on a great find. Enjoy!
  4. Appears to be sold. Obviously this car has a lot of newer wood pieces and upgrades, but it is still a great value for the money. I know the seller and they are really good folks. Someone got a nice car from a very reputable seller.
  5. Trimacar- I agree about the top. I think I would change the color to black and reshape the outline of the material to better match the body design. The top bows are extremely well made. When the top is down, the bows stack nice and flat so the booted top assembly doesn't stick up too high like it does on many other cars. It keeps with the sporty look of the body. Here are a few more photos including some by conceptcarz.com when the car was at the 2018 St. John's Concours.
  6. Thanks for the nice comments. This car is certainly well restored and one fast tour car. Everything that has been said about Dual Valve Model 48s is true. This car is a rocket-especially with the lightweight coachwork. There has been a lot of interest in this one! Here are more photos including some taken by conceptcarz.com when it was exhibited at the 2018 St. John's Concours.
  7. SOLD SOLD SOLD..... Here is a very high quality and well preserved, original brass bulb horn assembly that would mount on a very early automobile's steering column or tiller. It is also possible that this could be used on a very early bicycle or motorcycle. It measures about 13" in overall length and the bell is about 4 3/4" in diameter. It is heavy brass with very nice details throughout. It appears to need a new reed, but is otherwise complete and in very good, original condition. The price is 295.00 including shipping in the USA. I will ship outside the USA for extra. Take a look at the photos, what you see is what you get. If you need more photos, just let me know. I accept PayPal for payment. Please email me directly at: motoringicons@hotmail.com or call 734-730-4274.

  10. Still for sale and eligible for Class 01C judging at the next AACA National Meet!
  11. For some reason, this would not be my first choice if I needed a get away vehicle.
  12. A neat old car offered at a very affordable price.
  13. My 1st choice in this pile would definitely be the ex-Lindley Bothwell Locomobile Model 48 Sportif. I sat in this car at his ranch when I was a kid. While owned by Bothwell, this car made a brief cameo appearance in the movie "Chaplin". Another old acquaintance bought this car from Bothwell and owned it until the current owner acquired it. It's just a great, original car with a strong presence inside and out.
  14. Ummmm..... It's a Pierce Arrow. This car does have the correct lenses in the headlights. I don't think anyone was using clear headlight lenses in 1919.
