  1. Jo what size pipe thread is under that square flange?
  2. I bought a case of these deep voice grips. They work great on these oversize 700 19 tires. I'll look and measure them up or see if they have a model #.
  3. ED - Series 80 P/A cars are all too anemic for most drivers . They are ok for a memorial day parade but short of that ....
  4. The color is Studebaker BLACK CHERRY 1950 s era. The modern paint suppliers dont have a problem finding the mix.
  5. I used a Ford Model a deluxe pickup that only 300 were made as my model. My friend owned this rare truck for over 30 years .
  6. Thank you, It was made over from a cutoff 7 pass sedan. It has a Packard Overdrive tat works great. She runs 65 on the expressway with no effort.
  7. Benz Guy , I would drag it home. You might open it up and find it full of grease and OK. Franklins used Warner Gear boxes and they are all in good demand. Im in NY or Id ask for it. You have nothing to loose> It is Warner Gear .
  8. My first planned outing in a Franklin this season and had to take a tire⁹ apart . I've got 700/19 tires on the truck and I hate them. They are too big for the rims. I had to clamp the tire down to get the ring on working alone. I'm ordering a new set of Deman 650/ 19s this week. Other that the tire problem all went well.
  9. Jon, I have no idea . My grandson is building up a speedster and he could use it. Do you also have the steering gear box? If you decide to sell it , I would buy it if you can ship to upstate NY. MIKE 585 738 1541
  10. Is the glass cracked? Like at 8oclock? Does it turn and the needle go up? Mike
  11. I dont think any of them are correct. I have handles that are. I'll send pictures. Mike
  12. Nothing rare here.... Parts cars . They both need complete restorations at a cost of 5 times you can drive a good running driving car . If I get them , they will be available in parts and make lots of Franklin owners happy. The 31 does look like the plum in the crowd.
  13. Laura, It looks like a great start and good workmanship! I hope you find it a new home. Mike
  14. Jeff Thanks for the picture . I have not contacted that man yet. I will in the next week. I think this car is as sharp looking as a any I have fixed. The colors just seem to work together. When Im picking 2 tone colors I always try to pick two in the same color plain. Just to clarify, the dark cherry on the body and the wine color are both the same color , just one darker than the other. I have a automotive paint color fan from a high end paint store and I use 2 colors on the same spectrum from light to dark.
  15. Thanks Jeff for the picture of my 1932 Peerless Master 8 I restored around 1990. The body color looked almost black in low light. When I bought the car it was all black. Back in the day... I painted everything 2 shades of red or maroon.
  16. Interesting.... How much was he asking for my car?? Im curious. So you dont have the currect owners address? The first buyer bought the Continental 12K that came from the 1931 I parted out.
  17. Someone in SC bought what? My 32 that went to Calf? or the restorod from my area?
  18. Ive owned 2 - 1932 Auburns , both had a kick shackle ... no problems noted.
  19. Jeff, I dont remember if I every sent you a picture of the 32 I restored. I painted the car Studebaker Black cherry. This car sat in a barn with a 27 Peerless 6 cyl sedan also thats now in the Norwich NY museum. When I restored the 32 , I went to Sanford Florida and bought a 31 Master 8 sedan for the fenders. They were cherry and mine were hammered. The remains of the 31 is still here in town rebuilt as a rest-o-rod.
