  1. Interesting, I was just going by the stamped nuts and flat clips on the back. Thanks guys.
  2. I have a lot of pre-war stuff no one can even identify. I picked up a nice pair of doors for a late teens open car but never have come up with a positive ID. Can't sell them to a guy who needs them if I don't know what they are.
  3. A local clean out guy got a stash of someone's car parts and while looking for something I saw last week I found this. I think it's GM because of the lettering style and the fasteners on the back. It has a hazard light switch on it, and a seat belt warning light, so I would assume 1969 back to maybe 1963 (key switch on column cars usually have the hazard switch there too). The low fuel light and door ajar light make me think high end in that era, Cadillac? But I've never seen one before and Google was less than helpful trying to find pictures of any vintage consoles. Anybody here recognize it?
  4. I agree, that's what makes it questionable to me. I even edited a picture to take the width out and it looks spot on. The underneath, if you cut that ugly patch out and put it back to the width it came, the radiator cap hole would be perfectly round.
  5. It's been widened and filled. Work is ridiculously poor, not recent, but who knows how old. I'd sure like to see some photos of the back of the real deal, since I have one opinion yes and on another site two opinions that it's not even Ford. I didn't pay much for it and don't expect it to be worth a hell of a lot -
  6. I never got my set ID'ed either. This era stuff is tough.
  7. Looks like a spinner for a Dodge Lancer clone aftermarket hubcap. They were also sold separately to put on any cap.
  8. I don't know how you tell real from repro. I presume the rear edges are where they would differ the most. Anyone know? Anyone know where I can find photos to compare with?
  9. I found the link eventually. Didn't see the sense in cross posting though
  10. wire brush on a grinder would bring out numbers. That's hardly rusted at all.
  11. It's nothing new, I used to get lowball offers on project cars all the time. I got one a few weeks ago on an old dealer promo car, so I raised the bid price on it. I spend some time researching what they bring before I set a price. eBay doesn't get the flakes it used to, but it still gets some. And I'm not going to lower the prices on things like brand new $150 retail items I have listed for $110, that are already the cheapest ones on eBay, either.
  12. Parts car or have fun building a hot rod, rat rod, custom with it on some other frame. Couple of S10s with low miles sold up here at auctions for the exact same $200. Hone up those welding skills on it. Would never be worth a lot, but it would be something you built yourself.
  13. Looks like it might be a universal type. Any markings, name stamped into it?
