  1. I was surfing Ebay and came across this 1930 LaSalle auction. Sounds too good to be true. Does anyone know the seller? The seller doesn't seem to have sold a lot of items in the past. Any red flags here? Comments appreciated. Tom Wallace, Dayton, OH
  2. Has anyone seen the SFBay area craigslist ad for a 1933 Chrysler? It looks like a nice vehicle. I like the color and styling of the car. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/d/1933-chrysler-royal/6740827134.html Is this a car that a 6' 4" guy will be comfortable driving? Is the price reasonable? Are there questions that I should ask? Obviously the seller made a faux pas when describing the engine as a V8! Any comments welcome. Thanks Tom Wallace Dayton, OH
  3. Much thanks for the info! Now I know what to search for. Tom
  4. Hi Everyone! I am searching for a spare rim for my 1921 Premier. The tire size is 33 x 5. I think these split rims are Stanweld rims. I thought on this tire size the rim should be 23 inch rims but the rim measures 24 inches, or perhaps I am measuring wrong. Any leads appreciated. Thanks Tom Wallace, Dayton, OH
  5. I am taking my 1911 Cadillac to our local concours in a couple weeks. The gray linoleum is spotted and stained but it seems the more I clean the more noticeable the spots are. I have tried a few different products but without good results. Does anyone have a good method of removing the stains. Thanks Tom Wallace Dayton, OH
  6. I got a set of Champion W18's yesterday. They look like they will work well. Thanks all. Tom Wallace
  7. No. This car came from Moorecroft, Wyoming. I have all the history of the car since it was purchased as a used car in 1927. Thanks Tom Wallace Dayton, OH
  8. I bought a 1921 Premier Touring Car a quite few months ago and I am just now getting time to get the car running. I have been rewiring the car because the original wire was corroded and void of insulation. We just replaced the spark plug wires with the correct period wire. The car had a mix of 2 types of spark plugs. I got info from some source that the replacement plug would be an Autolite 3076. So I got a set and started to take out the old plugs. The old plugs had a lot of soot and looked burnt. So they definitely need replaced. But the old plugs have a much longer throw than the new Autolites! I am afraid that the new plugs would not deliver the spark to the correct position in the cylinders. See a photo of the plugs below. Any wisdom or suggestions would be appreciated, Tom Wallace Dayton, OH
  9. Ken, I sent you a pm today concerning our great Premier automobiles. Thanks Tom Wallace Dayton, OH
  10. Could you elaborate on which year/models that you wish to sell? thanks Tom Wallace, Dayton, Oh
  11. Could the first car pictured above with the V-shaped radiator be an early 20's Premier Touring car? Looks a lot like the 1921 Premier Touring Car that my friend and I just purchased out of Wyoming. The V-shaped radiator and the high beam/low beam headights look like the ones on my car. The small "spotlights" attached to the windshield posts are just like mine. A photo of my new "baby" below. I have to find an original radiator cap. I probably need to have the v-shaped radiator evaluated; ? leaks. I heard that these radiators can be really expensive to repair/recore. Any advice? Tom Wallace, Dayton, OH
  12. Our plan is to get the car ready for our local concours, Dayton Carillon Concours, here in Dayton next year, September 2017. Right now I am looking to preserve the upholstery, paint and top. We hope to work on the engine next spring and to get it in a running state. tom
  13. I am trying to preserve a 1930 Lincoln Sport Phaeton that was owned by the same family since 1938. A lot of upholstery and paint issues to tackle. I was trying to put together a tool kit but I am having trouble documenting what came in a tool kit. I have seen tool kits included with 1930 Lincoln cars sold on Ebay. None are the same. An Ebay seller emailed me documentation of what he said was the tool kit list from 1929 and 1930. I don’t know where he got the info. Perhaps from an owner’s manual? or parts list? A local fellow said that all of the tools came stamped with an “L” to show they were specifically made for Lincoln. I’m not quite sure about that. I attached all the documentation of what I have. Perhaps you have seen this before. Any advice is appreciated. Tom Wallace, Dayton, OH
  14. I can help with parts. PM sent to you. Tom Wallace, Dayton, OH
