  1. The Stutz I believe was in a 9 page article Feb 1983 Special Interest Autos. Had a
    very interesting history. Bought in San Fran from The Stutz dealer. Used to usher ladies in central Calif to the then owners Hotel in Fresno. You get the idea. 
    1937 engine rebuild with a fix of cracked head and valve job 1970s. Driving test in 1983 article says it was a loose engine but ran fair. Didn’t push it past 40 on the drive.

  2. Walter Murphy created a couple of boat tails without doors in 1921.

    The top mechanism looks to have a sort of telescoping rods. Can anyone tell me how these work?

    Anyone see a similar type top?764185780_21murphyrdstrtside.thumb.jpg.464989c1b562917903ac394c61941d7d.jpg1175685678_Topparts.JPG.82139bb0c34e2bc3d5e5795919b61008.JPG

    I originally put the question in the discussion section but not getting any response.



  3. Randy Emma has original drawings for Duesenbergs/ their parts; does restoration work on them

    Go to Auburn Cord Duesenberg club site he is a regular there

    Several Restorers can make bodies

    Steve Babinski a restorer owns a Lincoln Murphy Phaeton

    Platinum Classic Motor Cars has photos of 2 or 3 Murphy bodies they have fabricated, see their web site.

    Another is Fran Roxas has done similar work.

    Good Luck Ron

  4. Does anyone know or have a photo of 31 or 32 Murphy bodied Packard roadster. There was drawings done, but were they built? Saw a book that mentioned Earl Anthony ordered Murphy bodies for touring and roadsters in 1932 but have never seen a photo of the roadsters. Murphy was closing his doors then, maybe they were not done.
