There is 2 face plates , one that has the tread cover built integral and one just tread band. I tried a 650/19 inch tire on them all and it about 2 inches too tall. I suspect these are 17 inch but not sure . I want $125.00 plus shipping each piece. That's less that the price of the stainless steel trim on them. Ask for more details .

  4. Roger that's a damn good looking Ford! I drove F5 many a miles .It had the 5th overdrive trans all the way up and over to the right. What motor and trans do you have? Vac booster brakes? Mike
  5. Thanks Hugh , Im not convinced its Buick anymore. Its similar , but that's where it ends. Thank you.
  6. Al , Plenty of material to radius upper edge. I used a 3 inch pipe coupling that I split into 2 pieces. I bored the cap on the lathe and silver soldiered the threaded piece in. It worked out fine. Here is another shot.
  7. The whole thing seems unique... I need to get some good pictures. Ill post when I get them . The motor doesn't look familiar at all.Ive been around a lot of old iron. Maybe its not US built?
  8. Paul , does that qualify you to be dubbed a Shade Tree Mechanic" Jus having some fun.... Happy New Year Paul!
  9. I had 10 or these caps cast and this is the last one. Ive used some and sold the rest. They take some sanding but polish up well. $65.00 post paid. Mike West 585 738 1541
  10. If had this nice earl piece for a few decades and Im selling off a few items as I clean out my office. The certificate is in a frame with glass and is perfect condition. It has a gold foil seal with ribbon. It was issued in NY NY on Oct 27 1903. Id like $85.00 POST PAID. The certificate is 9 in x 9in. Mike West Livonia NY 585 738 1541 Paypal or personal check works. Thank you.
  11. Sorry I haven't seen that car personally. I only posted the pictures I just received. I have a friend that is local to the chassis that is going to inspect it. It may be the back of the frame has been cut off for a special at one time or the other. y friend is going to check if the bolts are metric or English as well. The rig may not be US built...
  12. Ive been selling many old THINGS that Ive collected over the years and figure its time to clean out a bit. This was a motor vehicle club dubbed the "Pioneer Class" . It is dated Oct 27, 1903 and has a gold foil seal attached. Its in perfect shape and protected in a frame with glass. The certificate was issued to a Fred W. Hubbard. The club was incorporated in NY, NY I would think this is as early of a motor vehicle club as there was. A neat piece to hang next to your London to Brighten auto. It should be worth $85.00 post paid. Mike West 585 738 1541 Thank you.
  13. I am trying to ID a unknown to me chassis. Its been suggested it may be 1924 and up Buick. Please take a look and see if you can identify this chassis. It may of been cut off on the back end. Thank you Mike
  14. Greg I agree ,. The motor is in the barn and not even sure from the pictures it belongs to this chassis. The front brakes suggests 1920s. Te size of the frame rails looks like 4-5 nch in height. The chassis looks modified for sure. I haven't seen it in person.
  15. Joe It looks great . One suggestion... Where the pump bolts to the case , soften up the corners to match the case. (radius the corners) ,this will make it look more period. Great job buddy.. Mike
