  1. Put them on a street rod site and get them sold. I'm sure this upset someone , but who really cares? If you read between the lines, the seller is saying ...."Hey come take a look and make me a offer" I've sold a lot of cars that need complete restoration and I don't believe I've ever sold one to one of the armchair quarterbacks that sit on there ass all day at a keyboard chopping at almost every post like a butcher with a clever! I really don't get it what enjoyment these responders get out of knocking almost every post they read. I sold a scarce Franklin Town sedan that I dragged out of a barn in Ohio that all the self proclaimed experts said was beyond restoration , to far gone to fix and all that BS. I put the car on EBAY at no reserve and guess what?, It had 10 bidders and went overseas to a guy that as thrilled to get it! I think the price was around $6500. I was happy and he was happy and all the armchair quarterbacks sat there rubbing their heads wondering what they didn't see....
  2. Yes I saw that as well. Ive already bought a box - still looking for original fenders. Thanks Mike
  3. I want a decent pair of rear fenders , old black paint would be a plus. Im near Rochester, NY . Mike 585 738 1541

The pinion bearing needs to be replaced (at least) and most likely Ill replace the carrier bearings as well. Im reaching out to the Chrysler group to see if these bearings are off the shelf sizes or am I going to have to find bearings specific to the car. Any comments welcomed.

Next, I would go to Olcar Bearing Company and ask them if they have what you need.

  7. I brought home some model A parts this week and mixed in was 2 Zenith carburetors that I have identified as Model B. One is assembled and looks good and the second has been separated from the top and bottom . The venturi is good. Ill post pictures if Antoine wants them. They could be rebuilt and run on a Model A as well. $100.00 each or $175.00 for the pair. mike 585 738 1541
  8. I saw a model a IRON WHEELED doodlebug. I believe it was Emanuel I met with. They are the most wonderful people to deal with...
  9. Mr King has a Model A hidden in the barn at Cattail....
  10. I have a 1933 in my shop now making some repairs for Walter Miller, Syracuse NY .Its the big and a super looking car. Very close quarters in the back, lots of leg room in the front.
  11. Eric, You can but bits that have a pilot drill head on the end and a flat spade like cutter to undercut the material . Or you can send out to Ft Wayne brake and clutch (Ind) . They do great work. Measure up the length and width of the material needed and they will quote a price.

  13. That's a good looking car! Its equipped nicely and not much rust. Ill call the seller on the 26th. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
  14. I bought a 1907 ?? ( wasn't sure on the year but that's what I was told.) UNIC from his stuff. It was pretty tough shape but the price was right. Its down state NY and I understand its being restored.
  15. Sad , a LOT of things aren't the same as when I was 21 ,but as long as the clutch and throttle still work I can pretend Im 21...... Im a mere image of my former self....
  16. I had a busy day today , parts going to Wisconsin, Penn and here in upstate NY. I have a lot of parts to sell at good prices. Ive never been accused of charging too much. What do you need?? Mike West 585 738 1541
