  1. 2 summers ago when I drove out west, remember?
  2. I'm the only one who has seen the Pierce in person. I want it.
  3. The following is the correct answer to your question Matt. The car you have there was originally a funeral home car in Cleveland. I know this is a fact as my dad was very good friends with the long time NE Ohio owner, and even knew his father, who bought it from the funeral home in the early 1950's. It was in pristine condiiton when they aquired it, and only used it on Sundays. While most 356 powered Packards of the 1940's have overdrive, this car does not. No need for O/D in a funeral procession. Also, the "One Sixty" script emblems on the hood sides were added later. The funeral home either ordered the car with them deleted or Packard didn't put them on cars being sold for commercial use. How do I know this? My dad is the one who gave the long time owner the "One Sixty" scripts to put on the car. He pulled them off a car in a wrecking yard in the late 50's/early 60's. I dont believe the long time owner ever got around to installing them. I think they were sold with the car & the current owner may have added them. If you look up old photos of this car in NORCCCA newsletters from the 1980s' & early 90's there will be a lot of photos of it, and you'll see those hood scripts aren't on it. Another thing that may have been altered is the top cross piece on the middle of the front bumper. Does it say 160 or 180? It may have been plain originally. The long time owner had the bumpers re chromed in the late 1980s and I remember some conversation about that but don't remember the exact details. The fact the car doesn't have a radio also backs up the funeral home provenance. I believe it had seat covers on the front seat for a long time as there were a line of snaps running along the top of the seat surround in front of the division window opening. The car only had something like 33,000 original miles on it in the early 1990s. Glad to see the car back in NE Ohio where it belongs and I hope some one local buys it.
  4. That's honestly the first time I've ever seen that car outside. I thought it was just a garage queen.
  5. What is this horn ring to? Part# cast into it is 7271A 1115624
  6. That's a series 9 Franklin automobile, built from 1916 to 1921 in Syracuse, NY.
  7. Join the Lincoln Owners Club. There's a bunch for sale in theie newsletter.
  8. This was listed for sale in Chicago in a 1976 Flying Lady magazine. Serial # S 294 FP. It's called a 1928 Springfield by Bewster. This had to have been updated in the 1930's, right? I can't seem to find any recent photos of it online.
  9. See my reply to you in the main forum. Private message sent.
  10. It originally came off a 1928 Stutz as that's the one year they used the white emblem. 1926/27 are the same except for the emblem. Starting in 1929 the radiator and shell are a different, wider design. So it fits 3 years of cars - 1926 to 1928. The radiator shell is chrome plated steel and they rust over time when left out in the elements. I sent you a private message.
  11. Walt, exactly where in Central Park is this location? As you know, quite a number of cars were photographed at this location. The rock formation should make the location not too hard to find if not completely overgrown. There are several roads that cross Central Park running East/West. Which one was this photo taken on?

    Lancia

    The mildew in the rear compartment is not patina. You’d think they’d clean that off.
  13. It's either 1926, 1927, or 1928. Starting in 1929 Stutz engine numbers began with a 3. You can't tell body style from the engine number.

    Reo Royale

    You should buy that Reo AJ just to get the metal tire covers.
  15. No idea. Ask the expert.
