  1. I also think it is an early, iron head Springfield PI, most likely built in 1927.
  2. Here are a very impressive and large pair of Bleriot Sidelamps from the pre-1915 era. These lamps are missing their lower burners and oil fonts but otherwise appear complete. As they sit, they measure about 13 1/2" in overall height. The main lamp bodies measure about 6" square and the lenses measure about 5" square. They are made to be used as oil lamps or electric lamps and each have their original socket holders still mounted within one of the brass lamp walls. On the rear of both lights are the original "Bleriot London and Paris" tags. Both lights have the matching stamped ser

  4. Here is a really nice, all brass early Jones 60 MPH speedometer. The overall diameter is about 3" and the depth is about 2 1/2" not including the mounting bracket. It has a very clear and crisp face with strong numbers. There are no cracks in the brass body or the rim which is unusual. The original beveled glass lens is clean and without chips or cracks. It has the original and adjustable brass dash bracket and the ferrule for the speedometer cable. It seems to turn freely and the trip meter appears to work. I am sure it could use a good cleaning on the inside. This is a nice, original example

  6. Still for sale. This is a great driving, early sporting car ready for this season's tours and shows.
  7. I remember whenever a neighbor bought a new car, the whole neighborhood would be at his house to "inspect" the new car and make comments. That might happen nowadays if you bring home a vintage car, but I don't think it ever happens with a new car.
  8. SOLD instantly!!! Here is one of those miniature, gas powered Model T Torpedo Shriner's-type Go Karts. I know nothing about these. It has been stored inside for many years and the mechanical condition is completely unknown although the engine seems to turn over. It has wood wheels they seem to be in good condition but the tires are flat. I do not know if it is complete or not but it looks ok. This is being sold as-is and must be picked up near Cleveland, Ohio. No shipping but we can store it for a bit until you can come and get it. Again, there will be no packing, shipping or shipp
  9. Another "thumbs up" for Mark's Magneto in Connecticut. They do great work, their prices are reasonable and the turn around is relatively fast. If it is a somewhat common magneto, they may even have one in stock so you do not have to wait for your core to get shipped, rebuilt, returned, etc.
  10. Years ago, Sheldon Greenland/Greenland Enterprises made the moto meters and had a bunch of different faceplates available with virtually every car make known to exist. He sold his business to Vintique who continued making moto meters but with just the Ford T and A faceplates as well as the plain "Boyce" faceplate. Within the last year, Vintique stopped making all moto meters and the parts vendors that were selling them have run out of stock. I had a big pile of new moto meters that I bought from a defunct parts vendor, but I have sold them all. I assume someone will start making them again, b
