  1. Hello, Sorry, I had given all my leftover parts to a friend with a 70A identical to the one I had. I am not sure any of the parts will work for a 70B I thought they were substantially different cars? There were several different sets of headlamps but they were all older style drum types. There was a radiator shell in good shape but I think the configuration was different on a 70B. If you want to send me a PM I can put you in touch with my friend and you can see if he still has any of the stuff that might be of value to you. Craig
  2. Thanks Jalp, I think I may be on the road to getting things properly sorted. I have been getting help from the British A-S club pre-selector transmission expert and I think I may have experienced a breakthrough. I have the workshop manual, not sure what kind of look I would get if I brought the car to the local transmission experts but one never knows. Hopefully this will not be necessary. I joined the British and Austrailian clubs both of whom offer excellent parts support, one can obtain just about any part needed which is pretty good for a car that has been out of production since 1960. I thought about a swap to a manual gearbox but I am told the bellhousings are quite different and there may be some conversion issues. The club members all tell me the pre-selector is robust and reliable once properly sorted out. Thanks for the input. Craig
  3. Hello, I recently aquired a 1953 Armstrong-Siddeley Sapphire with a Wilson Pre-selector transmission that is giving me trouble. I have been getting some on-line help from the club expert in England but since I know next to nothing about them I have not been able to translate this help into success. Is there anyone out there that knows of someone in the USA that has some expertise with these transmissions? They were used on some cars made in the US in the '30's Cord and Auburn among them, probably some others. I don't think there is much difference in the design. I live in Ferndale, WA near the Canada border so someone in Seattle or Vancouver BC would be great but anyone in the USA would be great. Maybe someone who makes house calls?! Thanks as always for the assistance. Craig
  4. Hi West, I am 1/2 step ahead of you, I put a post on the ACD club forums and will follow your advice and copy my post to the ACD forums within. Thanks, Craig

  6. I have put the car up on e-bay in case you want the full description and lots of photos take a look. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&sspagename=ADME%3AL%3ALCA%3AUS%3A31&viewitem=&item=330271349993 Thanks, Craig
  7. I put it up on e-bay for those that might be interested. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&sspagename=ADME%3AL%3ALCA%3AUS%3A31&viewitem=&item=330271349993 Lots of pictures and a total blow by blow description. Craig
  8. I found a Packard that I think would make me happy. All I need is some cash to buy it. Reducing the price on the LaSalle to $11,000. Or if all the members want to kick in $10 to the help Craig buy a Packard fund that would be okay too. Just 1,000 people to kick in $10 each would get the job done. Craig
  9. I found a Packard that would fit my desires, now all I need is cash to buy it, reducing the price on the LaSalle to $11,000. Does this stir anyone's juices? Craig
  10. I just want to push myself to the top of the list. Just won a trophy this past weekend - Best Orphan (non-Studebaker) of course there were only a few other orphans there and the '51 Hudson Hornet Hollywood hardtop took best of show and the well worn rusty and non-running Rambler really wasn't in contention. But still... Craig
  11. Hello, I have a 1937 LaSalle sedan for sale ($12,000) but would like to trade for a '36 -'40 Packard sedan since I have always wanted one. The LaSalle is a 30 year old restoration and definitely shows it's age but it is a runner and driver and makes a good appearance from 20 feet, the old "20 footer". I would like something in similar condition or of similar value as I would look to make a striaght trade. I can suppy full details and lots of photos to interested parties. I am located in Ferndale, WA (NW corner of the state). Let me know what you have! Thanks, Craig
  12. Nobody likes LaSalles? I am a little flexible on the price if that matters. Craig
  13. I have a 1937 LaSalle sedan for sale or trade for a '35-'40 Packard sedan or even a stepdown Hudson. It is a 30+ year old restoration but a decent runner and driver. The doors are rusty on the bottom and there is lots of bondo on the doors too. I think the rest of the body is pretty solid but the laquer paint job shows it's age. I would call it a 20 footer patinaed driver. Interior is okay, light blue wool. Drives well enough for me to use it fairly often, to church on Sunday (really!), car shows, SUnday drives etc. One could be happy to use as is, I do. I can share all the details I know with any interested parties and send photos too. I would be happy to call you to discuss in detail. $12,000 is my desire as that is what I have into it, would prefer a trade for the aforementioned '35-'40 Packard sedan in similar condition or of similar value. a '48-'53 Hudson might be of interest to me too. I am located in the NW corner of Washington state. Questions? Comments? feel free to PM or e-mail me. Thanks, Craig
  14. Did I mention that I would make a sweet deal for all this stuff? I would like to reclaim my garage space! Craig
  15. I still have quite a few parts for a '26 Willys-Knight Model 70 for sale. I traded the car for a LaSalle but retained all the spares. There are odds and ends of all descriptions. Larger items: (2) radiators with shells, 20" split rims, aftermarket trunk, re-nickled rear bumper, etc. many bits and pieces. Not much in the way of engine parts or sheetmetal. Contact me with your needs and I will see if I have what you are looking for. Thanks, Craig
