  1. Id like to have these cars in Livonia and have a chance to scrub them up a bit and sell them. I also don't agree these are parts cars. Priced accordingly ,every one of these cars would find a new home with someone that has a vision to fix them up. Whether it would actually happen is another story. I could see at least half or more of them going on a ship... Good stuff these old cars... Plus my granddaughter likes helping "Poppy" tinker with them.
  2. I don't think the people in Calf. aren't worried about old cars... any clue what they are worried about??
  3. I always have a good selection of 1929 - 33 parts for sale from cars that I have knocked in the head. Mike West Livonia NY 585 738 1541 Don't wait for BLACK FRIDAY.... our Holiday sale starts tomorrow!
  4. I would think if they were mounted anywhere it would of been on the faceplate. The chrome bands have a radius and the badge wouldn't look right not laying flat. Also those stove bolts don't look right to me. I would think the badge would have a stud on the back.. But not sure as Ive never seen one before.
  5. Wes, I have Lyons Covers on my Franklin roadster that has the mirrors that you mentioned. So if this is the case , these emblems would not have been used?
  6. Joe, Im on the edge of my seat waiting for the demonstration of the pump "PUMPING" I hope you rig it up with a supply and a drill motor and show off your work! Its great!

  9. I have rear fenders from a 80 series P/A . They look NOS or early takeoff. Old black paint or primer is all that's on them. Ill post a few pictures tomorrow. $150.00 each. Mike 585 738 1541
  10. If you find more than one , Ill buy them all. Good three legged pullers sell for $75-100 . I was at a sale this spring and there were two of them in nice condition . (Clean threads nt not all banged up.) The auctioneer sold them so much high bidder gets choice. The bidding at $80.00 . The guy took both of them... I have a extra , a nice clean one and Ill sell for $100.00 plus shipping.
  11. Get it out in the open ,Start in low or reverse, hold the clutch in, hit the throttle let off brake and repeat. Get it rocking-gas, brake, gas, etc..It will come loose. Then for the future when you store the car for a long period, prop a stick of wood from the depressed clutch pedal to under the gas tank so the clutch is disengaged during storage. No more stuck clutches........

  14. Walter, Thank you for the history ! I am quite pleased to get this plaque. I am going to install on my 1910 Mitchell. Did the Franklin poster sell at Hershey?? If not you would be a better man to sell it to a friend that still collects Franklins! Think it over! Mike
  15. Ill take it. I will PM you details where to send . Mike
  16. Dave , Its going to be a rare beauty!
  17. Walter, If you find a buyer that wants the pinion bearing replaced , Ill have time to repair it after the 15th of Nov. This is a super looking car! And a great price as ell for a roadster! Mike West

  19. Yes I have many more tags ready to be shipped. $5.00 each or 3 for $10.00.
  20. Im looking for a 1966 or 67 Fairlane convertible or hardtop. All model levels considered. I do not want a project car, bondo box, or customized. Restored or running originals looked at strongly. Location is not really a issue. I just hate rust and junk warmed over to look good. Thank you, Mike 585 738 1541 Send pictures to mawest729@gmail.com
  21. Bill, Paul made a good point about the spring. You will need to keep it captured with some threaded rod, nuts and washers although Ive taken them apart and put back together without anything. They don't fly apart , just jump up a bit. As for the u-joints, don't rely on the way it comes apart solely as many drive shafts have been reinstalled incorrectly. (The last guy didn't know what he was doing) Read and understand phasing of universal joints . Its all over the net and easy to understand. Like I said most of the splines are marked with a line or a arrow where it should engage the matching spline sleeve on the joint at the transmission end. Good luck and if you need my spline to line up the clutch Ill send it to you. Mike
