  1. https://www.ohio.com/news/20190607/local-history-driving-uphill-was-sport-in-richfield Richfield is outside of Akron.
  2. If that Cadillac still has the original paint on it, I’d think it would be a good candidate for the preservation class at Pebble.
  3. The problem is there's about 4 or 5 cars in that collection that started off life as 5-7 passenger sedans that someone cut the front roofs off to make them into towncars and then painted them wacky colors. They're all pictured in the book. The blue Stutz is really wrong. That car stared off as a factory bodied club sedan and someone really butchered it. Sad. It started off like this. And now looks like this.
  4. It's a recreation of a 1934 Packard LeBaron phaeton, but they built it on a 1937 chassis to take advantage of the independent front suspension & hydraulic brakes. Probably more fitting for a Barrett Jackson type auction than the auctions at Amelia/Pebble/Hershey.
  5. This is my favorite convertible sedan. One off Rollston Minerva. This was restored 20 years ago & is still perfect.
  6. They did it on the Custom series 356 Packards too.
  7. Unsold 1948 Packards were renumbered as 1949s. They can be idententified by having a “ - 9 - “ in the middle of the serial number on the firewall data plate.
  8. 1933 DeSoto. That is a RARE car, and I don't use that term lightly.
  9. "only one front seat originally?" No. The passenger side front seat was a small seat, sort of like a jump seat, that folded to make access to the rear seat easier.
  10. I have new a stainless steel exhaust system I'm putting on a '41 Cadillac, but I want to use a NOS muffler with it. I bought 2 of them at Hershey a few years back, in the original boxes. If I wanted to put a coat of high temp paint on the muffler, what works best? The car it's going on is a driver, not a show car.
  11. Here's a picture of the car John worked on when it was a nice original car. Photo taken near Akron, OH circa 1960.
  12. If I’m not mistaken, that’s not an electric fuel pump. It’s an electrovac, most likely made by Trico. It mounted on the firewall of some 1950s cars and gave a boost on vacuum for the wipers.
  13. I think DV-32 Stutz used the 1 5/16 venturi size if I'm not mistaken.
  14. Steve, I see the Pebble Beach preservation class in your future.
  15. It’s not either as they used the identical instrument cluster.
