  1. Steve do have all the lights, Stromberg carburetor, hubcaps, handles? What is big items missing? How much? Cash and carry.
  2. Chris, Can you post a picture of it? Mike West
  3. Mr Ballard, I should explain that I don't want a Packard is because I am happy with the cars I own now. Ive owned 3 Packard's and been around a few more besides. I am always careful when making a statement that its "My opinion" . Maybe closed Speedsters are worth almost a million , but it took this farm boy by surprise.
  4. I don't want a Packard of any description. I appreciate their quality and style , but Im not interested in owning one. I was making a statement that 700-800 for a closed Packard Speedster closed sedan (in my opinion) is unreasonable. If the seller can get it though, more power to him! My dad was in the old car business from about 1957 to mid 1970s and had a saying "There's a ass for every seat"
  5. I look at it as its "Still a 4 door sedan" Yes its rare .... but If I was going to spend that much cake , the top would go down. Ive owned 2 very rare and low production custom cars that were sedans and I still enjoy the stock roadster (same year and make) 10 fold. I think its overpriced ....Just my opinion.
  6. I have several Ross Steering boxes on hand that can be sold from Franklins .I also have some Gemmer boxes. Mike West 585 738 1541
  7. Go any parts store and buy Chevrolet 6 cyl Delco Remy cap, points and condenser. Ask for 1950 Chevrolet. They also have champion or Motocraft plugs W18 I think.
  8. Joe and everyone else that responded . I am talking with Harry Heitens shop in Mass. I really appreciate all the response. Mike
  9. John, I live upstate NY near Rochester NY. Ive gotten a few leads but still interested in hearing about all opinions of AACA members. Thank you, Mike
  10. Members 103 1,354 posts Report post x #1 Posted 16 minutes ago Im looking for recommendations of a shop that can make some alterations to a brass radiator I have for my Mitchell. The core is almost perfect, its the right size and shape, but need work done on the tanks and outlets. I have the brass shell "in the works" so will need a radiator man very soon. My plan is to take the finished shell with my radiator and get the alterations made. Has anyone used a shop in New York, PA, New England that is a no non-sense operation? I would appreciate any thoughts. Quote

  13. McMaster Crr makes "Belt Lacing" to attach the ends of flat belt together. Why not fix the car so a belt can be changed though... Something isn't right if you need to lift the motor to change a fan belt. Years ago I made a leather belt for a Model T by using small brass rivets to attach the ends.
  14. If you want to get it sold with everyone's attention list it on Ebay no reserve , 7 day auction. In your case its all profit and it will sell.
  15. Must be the guy sold the truck. I never understand when someone runs a ad Fore Sale and when you respond you don't hear anything.
  16. I need a dual 6 cyl distributor to fire 2 plugs at once. The picture shown is a Delco unit Pierce Arrow used on models 32 and 33. Please contact Mike if you can help/ Thank you. 585 738 1541 NY
  17. I sent you a Private Message on this site , please take a look. Thank you Mike
  18. I know of a running driving 34 Olympic with decent original interior in my area for $7500. It will not sell..... Neat cars but not worth fixing .
  19. Looks to me like one to many 0s on the price...
  20. Ft Wayne Clutch and brake makes them up! Ask for Phil and tell him Mike sent you. The quality is excellent..... 260 482 8637
  21. Hi Scott Please call me .Mike 585 738 1541

    Franklin

    100 HP unless modified.
  23. $2000 tops ... By the time this car is fixed proper , there wouldn't be any happiness left. Just my opinion.

    Franklin

    Yes its the same body , Mine had the 100 HP motor and this 29 has a 68 HP motor. This looks like a great car! Mine is going to the mid west. Im going to sell a super rare 1933 16B Franklin sedan . Will be listing next week . This is an original running driving car, perfect wood, good original interior., ride control, supercharged, wire wheels ,and more . Ive priced it to sell.... Im enjoying the room Im making in my building. Mike
  25. I buy leather belts on Ebay ad they work out fine for original and driver quality restored car. The seller I found even gave me a choice on the buckle style.
