  3. I am selling a 1947 Ford woody project. It was a original car and one family owned from new to 1988. The car is complete EXCEPT for the 3rd rear seat. Since its been in the hands of early V8 Ford man. He started the restoration but got stalled out. The entire running gear has been done .(Chassis, motor , transmission ,and rear rebuilt) All painted correctly. The wood body is still intact ,doors swinging, tailgate in place. The sheet metal on this car is EXCELLANT with original paint from factory still in place. Wood repairs are needed in the roof under the fabric area and the rear pillars. The

  5. Rob , When I restored the 29 137 DC I painted the bumper brackets , bumper backer bars , the same as the chassis color. As well the hood sills should be painted the same as the fender color. You are correct in thinking that they should be "colored" to match what they are in direct contact with. If they were painted different, they would clash. I believe all the chassis was originally black and then if a "colored" chassis was requested ,it was painted over the black. Of coarse this is my observation on what I found working on an original car .I painted all the springs ,driveline, and axles "col
  6. I acquired some very early parts from a friend that has had them since the 1960s. There is a early hood and short brass steering column/spider and wheel that came from the same location. The hood is marked "Peerless" . It is all brass construction, has a hinged panel on the top to access the motor and 2 panels on the sides. It appears that it was painted with the exception of 2 strips the full length where the sides meet the top. It appears this area was polished (similar to a 1905 Franklin cross engine car). The front is open where the radiator coils came out from under. This item would look
  7. Call Doug Hull , He has 3 or 4 nice entry level cars for sale. 201 230 3300 He has good cars and realistic prices.
  8. It looks like your dad was doing a great job on building the 32 like he wanted it. It will make a great car, but still needs $20,000 spent on it. IE: chrome, paint, assembly. You should finish up the car and join the Franklin club. Carry on dads dream. Good luck! Mike
  9. I emailed the owner and asked how many you get? (for $25,000.00)
  10. I know of a 1929 Sterns-Knight rumble seat sport coupe/landau irons, golf door , decent original interior, not been out of the garage since the 1960s. Car has wire wheels and ORIGINAL PAINT. Even the top fabric looks original. I think the wheelbase is like 140 inches. Car is in western NY . Mike

    The Hamblin

    I would contact the historical society of the city where his dealership was. I would also start by scanning the picture in the ACN so you know what you are looking for.

    The Hamblin

    Dick, I don't know what issue it is, but one of the old ACNS has a great full front shot of HAMLINS dealership. I assume that is what you are looking for. Go to the clubs website and search for HAMLIN in the subject file for ACNs. Mike West

  20. Is it hard rubber? If it is,it looks like a axle/spring bumper.
  21. Thank you gentlemen, I am always happy see Franklins back on the road and not trapped in a museum . Franklins are in my opinion the best driving, most nimble, best stopping and most affordable "Classic Cars" that can be had. They are meant to be driven.... Thank you! Mike
