  1. For what it is worth, the owner Tom has emailed me back as follows: He has two other pre-war cars and this is surplus . Unlike some of us , he apparently knows his limitations Have a title for the car. Been parked for 25 years. Ran when I backed into the storage building. Don't have any extra parts. Vinyl seats. Don't know if speedometer works. I've turned over the motor twice every year to keep motor loose. I guess you have to prime a tank, then listen for some electric motor to run before starting the motor. I don't understand this process so tha
  2. I had another email exchange with the seller Tom. Dad did the restoration with the parts he had , top is 'flexible', no rear seat heater, no side curtains unfortunately . He wants it to find a good home. I've emailed him with some more questions of how it runs , drives etc will keep you posted Larry That brochure is very interesting, I constantly make assumptions about McLaughlin and am proven wrong almost every time! I am still convinced the all of the bodies were fabricated in the same factory in the US and then sent to Canada for trimming and a
  3. I emailed the seller . He sent me a photo of the firewall data plate. It is definitely a McLaughlin and a 2525A no less. Trying to get some more info , like whether he still has the glass side curtains. He has a 1926 McLaughlin rad emblem on the car which is why the 1925 diamond shape can't be seen Was trying to get more info and then my service provider changed my email account and now I 'm just spitting up a lot of bad words. Cats and family are in hiding! Brad
  4. Hugh I don't know how you find the time to do these instructions but I sure appreciate it. Looks spectacular.can't wait to see it on the car Brad
  5. Ron It looks really nice! I'm curious how noisy it is when driving down the road. The stake bed on my 24 Model TT is an absolutely deafening cacophony of rattles ! Sounds like the truck is coming unglued.
  6. Larry Here is a close up of the correct taillight. I think you may be right, I've been back and forth and I can't say for certain . Of course the real trick is to find the correct lens which I don't think this one has.It is two pieces and the stop lens is amber with black lettering.I 'm trying to find one to borrow to cast reproductions . No luck so far. It would be interesting to see what the firewall data plate has to say. The tiress and rims sure look nice! you did well to get those parts. Shame they took apart the car but at least the stuff went to a go
  7. Larry Forgot about the headlight bar! Jake All 25 Buick ( and McLaughlins) look jacked up because the original 4.50- 5.00 x22 tires are no longer available and the only current available option is 6.00x22 which looks just fine on a Master but a bit oversized on the Standard. 1925 only!
  8. Larry, It sure does -wood dash veneer , the front bumper brackets( but not the bumper - that one is interesting ) , chrome windshield stanchions and what looks like a combination stop/taillight. I can't zoom in enough to see if the taillight trim has the same design as the headlight trim. I don't think it does. Looks almost Model A. Has the coil bracket on top of the S/G too - athough the coil is a modern one. And the colour is pretty close to the McLaughlin blue as well !
  9. Here you go if you haven't already found it !

  11. Leon You are a lucky man to have a car that can break down on the road. All of mine seem to be stuck in the shop and a looong way from breaking down on the road! 😒 I'm sure it isn't anything serious. Brad
  12. Leif I remember you sending the picture of the new project. being dragged out of storage. Looked like about a 3-5 year plan That was 'only' 1100 hours? You work fast! Is that a testing facility? What is it's purpose, I hope it isn't emissions testing! Nice work as always! Brad
  13. I suspect that it is a mechanical system using pivoting weights and springs and the principles of centripetal (or centrifugal depending on your frame of reference) force. You will find it under the plate holding the points and condenser. That is what our 1925 Std has . Brad
  14. Leon Those are some nice looking side curtains ! The car is not to shabby either , never get tired of seeing a photo of it. I cant remember , did you reinstall the 'asphyxiator' and if so, is it for show or go? Brad
  15. Ron I'm glad the block was put to good use. Thanks for the detailed description of the side curtain workings. I guess the only downside to the glass side curtains is that once you've decided how to venture out for the day, you can't change your mind! Unless you tow a storage trailer behind you. I'm going to guess that your car also has the exhaust-powered floor heater. If you have the heater, did you make it functional? I have a spare heater from a 25-21 but Mr Safety says I'm not allowed to install it for fear of asphyxiating the passenegers Brad
