  1. Maybe these were highly optioned or ?? But that is what I saw on the stickers.....
  2. They need to come to the Detroit area. A friend/customer just bought two new Corvettes from a local Chevy dealer's lot (actually, one was on the showroom floor).One is all red, one is white with a blue stripe. He bought them last week for a bit below the sticker price which was in the low 80k'ish range. I just saw both of them in my friend's car barn. According to him, there are plenty available for immediate purchase. Not sure if this is a regional thing or not.
  3. Hello Stephen and welcome to the AACA Forum. I can only imagine the wonderful stories you must have about your father and uncle. They owned some of the world's greatest collector cars and were truly amongst the pioneers of this great hobby. I have heard so many great stories about your father and have been fortunate to have been in contact with a few of the cars he once owned. I remember awhile back you were working on a book about your father and the car collection. Are you still working on it? Thanks for noticing the 1911 Packard I am selling. Have a great day.

  5. What a fabulous car. I saw it listed and not surprised it sold instantly. I don't know of anyone actively using an Owen Magnetic. The car that sold at the Bonham's Tupelo Museum is in another museum and will not likely get sorted out or used. The Henry Ford Museum has a 1915 that was acquired in 1930 (yes, 1930). It has been in their warehouse for decades. See picture below. I wonder how many exist? Wouldn't it be a fascinating car to sort out and drive?
  6. This just sold on Thursday 1/14/21 at Mecum's Kissimee Auction. Price includes the fees I believe. https://www.mecum.com/lots/FL0121-444174/1932-lasalle-345b-town-coupe/
  7. Since my teenage years were spent in the early/mid 1980s, I certainly remember the show and the van. Seeing this brings back fun memories of a TV show I really liked. Not something I would want to own, but I bet it will do well and there are probably some 1980s TV nerds with disposable income that are eyeing this van very closely right now. I think that if the "normal" auctions were allowed to take place-such as the usual Scottsdale circuses that would be going on this week-this van would really have done well. I could see it being really hyped for a big, live auction and maybe ev
  8. For the 1911 model year, Packard built less than 400 Model 18 automobiles with the majority production being touring cars. The runabouts were built on a special, short wheelbase chassis and used a variety of other components that differed from those used on the longer wheel-based touring cars and limousines. This 1911 Packard Model 18 runabout, #19101, is believed to be the only authentic example in existence today. Well documented in The Early Packard Registry, it is the only 1911 Model 18 runabout listed with its authentic and original body as well as its correct, short wh

  10. You will need to post more photos of the entire engine. The one photo you posted doesn't tell us much. Gemsa speed equipment can be quite valuable and his items are eagerly collected. While all of his items have good value, some are more valuable than others. Most of what he made was for four cylinder Fords-Model T and A/B. He made a variety of racing head conversions-flatheads, overhead valve, single overhead camshaft and dual overhead camshaft conversions. Engines are basically a sum value of all the parts-what kind of head does it have? What manifold does it have? c
  11. And then there are the differences between the standard Fordor Sedan and the Town Sedan. The more expensive Town Sedan has a more ornate interior with a fold down armrest on the rear seat and cowl lights. The Fordor sedan does not have these "extra" features.
  12. I remember seeing this car at the former Dean Kruse Automotive Museum in Auburn for a few years. There were lots of pictures with Dean Kruse and Andy. I believe they tried to sell it at one or more of the former Kruse Auburn Auctions.
  13. SOLD SOLD SOLD!!! Here is a really nice and ORIGINAL pair of all brass windshield to frame support rods from about the 1912 and earlier period. They measure about 51" in overall length and the rods themselves are about 1/2" in diameter. The have cast eyelets where they mount to the windshield frame and heavy cast angled "feet" where they attach to the frame. The rods themselves have a slight dog leg to them which makes them left and right. They are in very good, original condition and can be used as-is on an original or worn car or could be polished for a restored car. These ori
