  1. Here is a brass light you don't often see. This Gray and Davis all brass bullet tail light measures about 11" in overall height and the round front is about 5" in diameter. It has its original convex, clear and red lenses which are in excellent condition. This is a nice, clean original lamp with the exception of some repairs and one small hole on the underneath area of the font which you would not see once it is on a car. It is complete with the exception of the burner and has a nice, shiny reflector inside. The brass is very clean and straight. This would look great on an original car or could be easily cleaned up or restored. Early tail lights like this are tough to find. Take a look at the photos. What you see is what you get. If you need more photos, let me know. The price is 425.00 including shipping and insurance within the USA. I accept PayPal for payment. Please email directly at: motoringicons@hotmail.com or call 734-730-4274. Thanks.

  3. This is a great, single Solar 41A all brass, bail handle sidelamp. It measures about 14" tall and the front glass frame is about 6" in overall diameter. A very nice original lamp, it has a large beveled convex front lens and a small red jewel rear lens. It was clear coated many years ago and the clear coat is starting to come off in places. It appears to be complete with the exception of the burner assembly and still retains its original Solar tag on the side. There a few small dents/dings that are mostly on the rear panel, other wise it is a very clean original lamp. This could be easily restored or used as-is on an older restored or original car. It presents extremely well. A very large and impressive light suitable for an early, high quality car. The price is 450.00 including shipping and insurance within the USA. I will ship outside the USA for extra. I accept PayPal for payment. Take a look at the photos, what you see is what you get. If you would like other photos, let me know.

  5. Here is a large and very impressive brass bulb horn. It is extremely well made and is suitable for very high quality, 1912 and earlier automobiles. The only markings, in very small letters is "Voler 812 Dragon". This large horn about measures 12" in overall height and 6" in overall depth (front to rear). The front oval opening is about 7 3/4" by 6" . It is very heavy and ornate and has a large cast bracket. This is an original horn that is in very good original condition. A few very small dings but no cracks or other problems. At one point, it appears to have been clear coated and the clear coating is starting to come off. This could be used as-is on an original or older restored car or could be very easily restored for a show car. Big, quality horns like this are hard to find. Take a look at the photos, what you see is what you get. Let me know if you need additional photos. Price is 450.00 including shipping and insurance within the USA. I accept PayPal for payment.

  7. Several early cars had full elliptical springs on the rear and half elliptical springs on the front. This 1910 Buick Model 16 is an example.
  8. This person has made custom wood rims and I have heard good things about his work. From my understanding his quality is excellent and turn around is fast. He will make them to your specifications. https://woodbykevinallen.com/index.html
  9. I was once told that you can put it in a drill and spin it until the fluid comes down. I have tried it a couple of times and it has worked. Obviously, be careful.....
  10. SOLD! Thanks, Rand. Here are two 1920s/Early 1930s Schebler updraft carburetors. Both are marked "Schebler Mod S-3" and "SV-154". The both have approximately 3" center to center mounting holes and 1 3/4" bores. These are in nice, original condition and just came from long term, indoor storage. They have aluminum bodies and steel bowls. The aluminum looks to be free from corrosion or damage and the steel bowls are clean. I have not had these apart, but all the shafts move freely and appear to be free from wear. One carburetor looks like it may have been rebuilt along time ago. A nice pair of carburetors that should be easy to clean/restore and put to use. I do not know their exact applications, but I am sure the are appropriate for a variety of medium to larger size cars of the 1920s through very early 1930s. If anyone does have more information, please let me know or post here. The price for both carburetors is 185.00 INCLUDING shipping within the USA. I will ship outside the USA for extra. Take a look at the photos. What you see is what you get. Please call 734-730-4274 or email: motoringicons@hotmail.com Thanks.
  11. Here is a nice, early brass tire pump with a steel base and wood handle. It measures about 21" in overall height. There are no markings on it other than "Made in USA" on the bottom of the cast iron base. The brass tube is in excellent, original condition with a nice, knurled brass cap on the top. The wood handle looks original and is good. Of course, it will need new inner seals and a hose if you are going to use it. The grease gun is an early, high quality piece. It has a steel barrel with nice, knurled brass caps. It measures about 15" in overall height as shown. It is in nice original condition. This could be used a nice dashboard or cowl mount pump on the side of a speedster or racer. The price for both items is 125.00 INCLUDING shipping within the USA. Take a look at the photos. What you see is what you get. Let me know if you need additional photos. I accept PayPal for payment. Please call 734-730-4274 or email: motoringicons@hotmail.com Thanks.

  13. A set of four, steel REO wheel centers/hub covers in a pile of parts, which I believe are from a 1914-1918'ish REO and cover the center part of the wheel, like a hubcap. They measure about 7 3/8" in overall diameter at the base and are about 4 1/2" in overall height. They are in really nice condition and the brass circular trim pieces are intact and very nice with the REO logos stamped in them. I'll take 100.00 for the set of four INCLUDING shipping within the USA. If anyone knows exactly what year/model these fit, let me know. Thanks. I accept PayPal for payment. Please email: motoringicons@hotmail.com or call 734-730-4274 Thanks.

  15. That is one great looking Buick. Congratulations on your progress.
  16. That looks like a good looking and honest old car. The price certainly seems fair. Buy it, sort it out and drive it.

  18. In addition to making their standard Ford parts, Rootlieb in California has made lots of one-off early car flat fenders. I would give them a try.
  19. There are so many great adjectives that can describe Bill Davis. We had been friends for many years before I acquired my Springfield PI Tilbury sedan. I'll never forget my first "showing" of the car at the CCCA Museum event at Hickory Corners in 2003. As I was pulling into my space, Bill came up to me and congratulated me on such a "smart" looking car. Of course, he remembered the car well from Al Fiske's ownership and would always have a story or two about Al or my car whenever we would see each other. He knew the serial number of S274RM by heart and would always comment to me what a wonderful job I was doing by maintaining and driving the car to all the events. Somewhere in my stacks, I have a wonderful photo of the TIlbury, Bill and myself that was taken at a CCCA event by Bobbie'dine Rodda. If I can find it, I will certainly post it here. Godspeed, old friend. You will always be remembered as not only the old car hobby's greatest ambassador, but also its greatest gentleman. Now it is our turn to tell great stories about you.
