  4. Hi Im helping a friend locate parts for his Mercury Capri. Looking for a parts car to get some cowl and floor pan sections from. Call Mike West at 585 738 1541 if you can help. Thank you.
  5. I love free wheeling used in the right road conditions. I had a 1931 Hudson "Greater Eight" and that was the only way the car would reach the speeds Hudson advertised it could achieve when new! I was on Rt 20 south of Syracuse NY free wheeling with a Franklin when I was much young and the dam top fabric came loose at almost 80 mph. Im not that brave or stupid anymore to run like that. Brakes are totally ineffective at these speeds.
  6. These panels are scarce . They fit the tool box or the battery compartment on 31-33 large series cars $150.00 each. The last 2 pictures are a 1931 153 sedan too box. $100.0 I also have splash aprons for these year cars . If you are running a 32 or a 33 you could add the toolbox with these parts. Also in the first two pictures is the air box cover with proper knob. $125.00 Mike West 585 738 1541
  7. Call Bob at 585 382 3164 He had 2 of these cars . He may have one.
  8. I'm selling several 25 "Firestone ( think) lock rings, one side ring an done rim. Also I have 1 new 27" Stanweld rim , 1 lock ring and 2 reversible side rings that were new about 10 years ago and never used. They were made by Coker Tire Co. rim division at a great expense. This rim was dimpled for lacing of wire spokes. If the rim was needed for a wood spoke wheel , this dimpled holes could be easily wire welded shut. Will post more pictures soon. Mike West Livonia NY 585 738 1541 reasonable prices.

  11. Here is a tall top bow saddle. Needs blasting and paint. $85.00 POST PAID. Mike 585 738 1541
  12. Buying old cars from a unknown source is a lot like blind dates.... You never know what you got yourself into until you have already spent the money....
  13. NONE OF THEM RUN ..................Until you get a new battery in it , touch up the points , change the oil and fresh gas. Most likely the car only needs a service. I men the seller should be able to tell the buyer about it. Look at the car , its a Sweet Survivor. Ive dragged home some real shitboxes that have sat outside for years and a little love and they start up. You can tell this car has had some tender loving care. If I was serious Id go to the car with a new battery and gas BEFORE I bought it. Its the same old story . The old boy wants all he can get and the buyer wants to buy wholesale.
  14. I don't need them but will pass this offer along to a friend building a big car. Thanks Mike
  15. My opinion running $8000-10,000 if it has a decent interior. It looks like a real nice car. You need to find that rare breed of collector that doesn't mind running around at 35mph. Just my opinion....
  16. Al send it to Cattail foundry . He will make you onein a few weeks and it will be right. Iron brass or aluminum... Gordonville PA
