  1. One is an all black Murphy conv coupe, no? It was in one of the Harrah auctions.
  2. Looks like it lost 2 rows of radiator during restoration. Hope it doesn't run hot now.
  3. Needs a few more accessories. Hupmobile I believe.
  4. This has got to be the weirdest Model A I've ever seen.
  5. A happy owner with his new 1929 Stutz in San Francisco
  6. Yes, Stutz came out with that hubcap when they switched from buffalo wire wheels to 6 lug bolt on wire wheel with the hubcap in 1930. Then when the DV/SV designation came out part way through 1931 they had a cloisonne emblem held on with three rivets. Stutz just used the earlier cap & had the emblem riveted on over the stamped Stutz logo.
  7. Not a car, but rather a street sweeper. A 1917 Elgin. How would you like to get your arm caught in all those chains? No safety guards at all.
  8. Here's a 20" Buffalo wire wheel from a 5000 pound 1929 model car I'm in the process of dragging home. The backside of the rim has welds on it almost all the way around. It is a painted rim, never chromed. This car has been off the road since 1960, so the welds are very old.
  9. Thought you'd like to see this neat mostly original GTO that showed up at a local show a couple weeks ago. Even the owner was original. Dark blue in color & a 4 speed car.
  10. Here’s a picture of it circa 1960. It was originally all black. This is the same car.
  11. And here's what it looks like now in storage at the Smithsonian. Looks the same except they touched up the paint on the front fender.
  12. Here's a similar one on Facebook for sale. 68,000 miles. Asking 19,900. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2995878600688616/?ref=search&referral_code=marketplace_search&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Ad8a20bd8-37df-4739-a723-b9e199d98c93
  13. "Remember Murphy’s Law..........if the body was built in Pasadena, it’s a car worth having in your garage." The exception to that are some Murphy bodied cars that Bohman & Schwartz got their hands on down the road & screwed up. They ruined a few Rollston bodied cars as well. We could do a seperate thread on that. Show before & after pictures of cars Bohman & Schwartz altered and determine whether they look better or worse after they got their hands on them.
  14. You need to make a final run of the route a day or two before the tour as well. A friend of mine ran a tour where the city tore up the road the day before the tour and there was a complicated detour which confused people. And remember the Stutz Club tour of 2007. We were supposed to visit that waterfall in the National Park and the park management decided to move a historic home that day - right through the parking lot we were supposed to park in.
  15. Buy the book “80 Years of Lincoln Mercury”
  16. A filister head screw with lock washer is the correct fastener for the oil level indicater.
