  1. I never would have guessed that carbon/copper brushes make such a difference on improving starter performance. Thanks for letting us know.
  2. The body on the car appears to be aluminum.
  3. Thanks for giving people on this forum first opportunity.
  4. I agree that primer is not present, which translates into paint delamination occurring far, far sooner than if primer had been applied, and I don't believe the painter was experimenting with a formulation that combined primer and topcoat as one.
  5. Very interesting article. Chrysler products are well-Engineered vehicles, but are not given sufficient credit for their simplicity and reliability.
  6. DB26, Can you remove one of the paint flakes and show us the backside side so we can see if primer is attached to the black paint?
  7. The skill required to manufacture milk bottle cars is the same as was employed by the major customer body companies of that time who produced the high dollar custom Packard and Cadillac limousines, but because the body looks like a milk bottle people generally don't make that connection. Based on the body of the milk bottle car not showing any signs of rust and corrosion it is likely aluminum, just like the limousine and town car bodies of that day.
  8. In the 1970s I used Dupont straight enamel and a bristle brush to paint several cars that turned out decent. Dupont even offered a black automotive enamel that had it written on the can that it was suitable for brushing.

  10. A friend had a brother who was in the rumble seat of Model A coupe that went off the road and overturned. The two people inside the car survived. The brother in the rumble seat was killed.
  11. Are you willing to disclose the reason you did not purchase the Graham-Paige?
  12. Matt, I'm certain you've heard a books worth of reasons from people who changed their minds about purchasing one of your cars. How about sharing some of those reasons using your well-written prose.
  13. The first Tucker I ever saw and had the opportunity to examine and learn about was in 1972. There are many other automobiles manufactured by failed car companies that were as innovative, if not more innovative than a Tucker. By the way, Ford and GM never looked at the Tucker car company as a threat and the Tucker car company went out of business for the same reason hundreds of other car companies went out of business. The only reason we hear of the Tucker today is because of the movie.
