  1. John, There aren't many Ford LTD cars on the road anymore..... smile...
  2. I want a price on moving a mid sized 1966 car that runs and drives with brakes . Please respond here or email to mawest729@gmail.com Thanks Mike
  3. When I bought my Auburn Phaeton the old man gave me news letters from way back. Is there any interest in them . I think these were printed by Bill Kinsman in Buffalo. Very affordable. Mike 585 738 1541
  4. I really like the split windshield! It must of been home brew made?
  5. This is a 6 cyl 1928 I sold about 5 years ago. It wasn't a big car like the one shown.
  6. OFFER $500.00 That's plenty for that mess.
  7. Thanks for this info. Ill be looking for them. Mike
  8. OK Buddy ... I was shaving some fun with you. Mike (smiling)
  9. My thoughts are you overthink too many things. Its a old car... not heart surgery. Ive had several tanks (model T ford speedsters ) with pressurized tanks . I put some pipe dope on the threads and tighten it up. Done and fine.....
  10. I have a plumbing house next door to me that has beeni business since the 1950s. They have old stuff . What sizes are you thinking 3/8 pipe? Ill find out what he has in brass I used 1/2 inch pipe on my Mitchell. For the fuel out of the tank and 1/4 inch pipe to pressurize the tank . Ill send pics ofmy tank. Mike
  11. Al go to a plumbing supply co an buy a flange plate with the pipe thread size you need . I drill 4 holes in them and rivot/ sweat them in place. They look great and are authentic. Make sure to get in brass and you shape the flange part to fit the radius of your tank.
  12. If its solid, its replacement . The originals were a stamping and even have a very small L or R stamped in them to ID the side. My source of knowledge is a original 32 8-100 A phaeton and a 32 8-100 A sedan.
  13. In its stripped out present state , would be much help to anyone. (In my opinion)
  14. Somebody in the Auburn club reproduces that trim. Gilliland maybe? Call Mike Samson 847 987 2928 Tell them what side you need . Maybe Jay Engler in ACD club has it
  15. Selling this clean coilbox . It has a stamped date on the back 1911.(see pictures) The switch works smooth , the case is in nice condition and the brass is all good. All Ive done to it is wipe it down with Lemon Pledge... Still has the paper label under top. Price $300.00 and you pay the shipping. It wll fit in a Large USPS Flat Rate box. I think they are under $20.00 . The last thre pictures are of a different coilbox with good switch Ill sell for $125.00 .Its a KOKOMO box I think.... But can check if any interest.

  16. Update, I found this Hudson. Its happy in the windy city with a Chicago police man. It has a good home and maybe someday if he tires of it, I may get a chance to get it back.
  17. Martin I have a good supply of the Pontiac insert bearings that were used in the con rods if you need them.I think there is a Toyota application as well.
  18. Look into these pictures and you will see a Truffault Hartford wrench plus others . Some of these are from Pierce Arrow cars. If any of these early wrench's interest you., email me Mike 585 738 1541
  19. I have a friend in NY that will make it for you, he has the bead roller and rolls , a expert man. Call Ray Hedger at 315 684 9007
  20. My intentions were not to upset anyone. The point I as trying to make is this guy has a once in a lifetime hoard of very interesting prewar cars and we are all lucky to see them in where they have set 6 0r 7 decades. We wants to sell them, is putting a asking price on them and is inviting offers. Im sure some of these cars can be bought for much less than the posted price. What I don't see is to publically beat him with a ugly stick for his offerings. I look at cars on line everyday and a lot of them I think to my self "Good luck" or "He is nuts" but I don't jump on the machine and beat him publically.. I just forget.. Im sure Im wrong and your ideas are right. Just my opinion.... Have a great day . Mike
  21. 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....
  22. Yes I saw that as well. Ive already bought a box - still looking for original fenders. Thanks Mike
  23. I want a decent pair of rear fenders , old black paint would be a plus. Im near Rochester, NY . Mike 585 738 1541
