  1. Mich, Ive had many conversations with the seller and hired a local that "Has been around old cars" to go look at it. The car was in a building fire many years ago and has sat outside  since. It melted the radiator  and aluminum water  jacket. The seller is a nice guy and I believe a trustworthy man. The problem is he is hung up on the name LOCOMOBILE and Google's prices that aren't realistic  for these remains.  My offer was 6000 and I think he said he has turned down$ 9000. Im now glad I DIDNT get it.  Mike

    I currently have this car for sale in Rochester NY. Since this posting the REO now has 4 new Firestone tires, a new radiator, a new head gasket and rebuilt master and wheel cylinders and runs great. Since the original 2015 posting the car has probably been driven about 300 miles and has had great custodial care. It is a real head turner and gets lots of attention wherever it goes. It needs a speedometer cable and temperature gauge service. It can be yours for $18,900. Located in Rochester NY. Contact Joe Scanlon at 585 721 6559 or email jscanlon48@aol.com. Thank you for looking!

    Hi Joe, Are you related to GLEN SCANLON  that restored a 1928 Ford sport coupe in the lake 1950s?  My dad traded a unrestored roadster for his restored car. He had a cottage on the north end of Conesus Lake  NY . Just curious. He was a great guy.... Mike West

  3. John, I was thinking the same  thing... but I was  careful not to make that claim in fear one of the Franklin internet policemen would correct me.

    If a small piece of spring steel was soldiered to the back side of the bigger one it would make a dandy crank hole cover. Ive used a small  piece of banding iron cut to size . Have a great day. Mike

    Take a close look at the car up for auction, I like it, and have inspected the Guyton car since the sale, as it ended up with a friend. Walter’s old car is on my want to own list. A quick back of the envelope calculation makes me think the number being tossed around is too high. I’ll guess 35k all in.........maybe.

    Ed, I had several of Walters cars at my shop last summer  for work. I can give you more info on it if you are interested. The second trunk came with the car but wasn't on it when Walter bought it. I had a new exhaust system installed , cleaned out the fuel tank and other assembly for him. When it left here last July (2019) it went to a trim shop in Syracuse  for new interior. It had its original cloth interior  when it left. Its a very sold car, good wood but needs more work to make it a driver. It will make a super driver with some more effort spent on it. The motor runs very well. Walter liked to call it the "Duesenberg of Kenosha".

  6. ED , Unless Ive missed the posting of the price the family will sell it for , telling us HOW MUCH they will accept will help sell this car. They have tested the waters long enough  for offers.  Id be interested in it myself , but want to know how much money it is. Its a very simply concept....... but a lot of sellers cant figure it out.

  7. ED, well said. About 30 years ago I discovered the remains of a 1913 Wahl touring car. The motor was made in Rochester NY by the Hazard Engine Works. It was a small displacement motor  with a Detroit Gear transmission. After researching it , and speaking with Beverly Ray Kimes and other noted historians it was concluded it was the ONLY ONE  KNOWN. My own dad  said when I told him how rare it was "So are Dodo birds, but who cares"  The car went to Australia where its been repaired (Ive been told) . This Ford is different- Its a real jewel.... Hopefully it will be driven.
