  1. Interesting project. Im curious how you were able to identify this body to be pre 1916 and if that dating would stand if it was questioned by HCCA ? Thank you, Mike
  2. The housings and 2 locks have been sold. I still have Oakes locks and the rear spare lock housing.
  3. I have 2 Model A Fords coming in next week that I took in trade on a non Ford. 1931 standard roadster - old restored , still looks good and a 29 P/U garage fresh all original including seats, paint and equipment. It will be a good survivor piece to have fun with . Ill be posting pictures soon. Mike West Livonia NY 585 738 1541
  4. The long arms fit 1932, 1932 and 1933 Airman models.
  5. The odd lock housing was from a 1928 or 1929 rear spare wood wheel car with screw on hubcaps.
  6. Here is some nice original sidemount tire Oakes locks and arms . Call Mike if interested. 585 738 1541 Same day shipping on small items.
  7. If anyone reading this needs a four speed I have both styles with bell housings. Last winter I removed a Columbia Dual Range rear axle assembly from a 1932 Airman. I was told by the previous owner of 40 years that was put in the car way "Back in the day". At any rate , today the 32 has its proper axle assembly reinstalled.

    19" LOCK RINGS

  10. I need a trunk lid/ rumble seat lid fo a 1931 .I believe they are all the same. I want a original not a repop. Mike
  11. Tom is the starter switch the style you pull up on the horn button? I restored a 1932 Master 8 and had a master 8 parts car I sold locally .The body was made into a street rod ,but it had its original steering gear in place when I sold it. I will check and see if the steering column has the switch.
  12. Hi Layden , So you have 2 of the 37x4.5 smoothies?? (No tread round head) Mike
  13. These are good 8 cyl drop center rims . Ill box up and ship. You pay $50.00 for the pair plus shipping Mike West 585 738 1541

  15. Excellent all original Treslite with original glass panels . It has the correct piece that backs up the fender and the chrome loom that goes over the wires. I have more pictures if interested. Mike West 585 738 1541 $1000.00 includes shipping . I have a building full of Franklin parts 1929-1934. Nothing earlier except a full set of series 10 or 11 doors with handles . Excellent condition doors with glass - cheap....
  16. I drive old cars in the crap because I figure the car will outlast me so what is the difference? Granted they aren't show cars.
  17. Matt Im curious what is a comfortable road speed for your CD8? Will it run 65 without to much labor? I always wanted one.
  18. A ggod argument to accept the CD-8 as a Classic Car of America is a Auburn 8 that is a classic. Auburns are great cars but I dont think on the level of the Chrysler in quality. If Chrysler had made a boatail speedster , they would of been on the CCCA list. (Just my opinion)
  19. All looks gd! Ive been in Florida 5 weeks so tonight was the shocker getting back to NY.
  20. Al, It doesn't look like its large enough capacity for your engine. That came off a Whippet or some other baby car.

    Stutz 1906 Gauge

    I would ask $300.00 for it and you will never have to worry you asked to little!
  22. Wouldn't that be a treat if you owned the car...
  23. When I was a kid , I was always looking over the Hemmings Motor news and Old cars weekly swap sheets ect ect. for rare and affordable cars. I remember telling my dad "Its a RARE CAR" he alsmost always would respond "So are DODO BIRDS, But who cares" Ive had a few really rare cars . One was the only one known.. It was a 1913 Walh touring. It had a Rochester NY made Hazard motor and the car was built in Detroit. Yes it was rare but not very valuable.
