  1. Barry, Thanks for the photo of the Packard hood ornament. The detail looks pretty good from here. The photos on the American Arrow site could be a little better. Thanks again for all of the help.
  2. Now this brings up a somewhat related question (at least for me) for you Buick guys: Is the mascot Hermes or is it Mercury? I always thought and believed that it was Hermes. Dana, Please let me know how the masot turns out for you. I will send you a PM so you can contact me directly, thanks.
  3. Darryl, Thanks for the lead. I will definitly put them on the list to call. I had also posted this topic up in the General Discussion forum and got some other leads as well. I was also given the American Arrow website, beautiful reproductions, great detail. Thanks again, if anbody else has anyone they would reccomend for this kind of repair, please let me know, any and all help is appreciated.
  4. First let me say thank you for the help. I looked at the American Arrow website, and yes they do look great and to be very high quality. Off-topic from the Buick hood ornament, the quail for the 28-29 Ford model A looked absolutly fantastic, really great detail. My brothers Buick is an original, unrestored car, less than 12,000 original miles. I believe that it was a past AACA winner, but I will have to ask him when, (70's i believe). In the end I am sure he will want to get the original repaired, but in the short-term I think that the reproduction is the way to go (for now). If anybody else h
  5. Can anyone please reccomend a shop for the repair and restoration of a 1931 Buick hood ornament. Not just replating or pits, but an actual break. Here is the best shot "I" have of the hood ornament. This is for my brothers car. You can just get in touch with me through a Private Message. Any help or leads would be very much appreciated, thanks in advance.

  7. Sorry, thats why I bought the box. There was a mish-mash of stuff in the box, just a wide variety of early ignition stuff; springs, points, condensers, model T timer rollers, etc. The rotors are actually N.O.S. North East, two for the Fast four and three for the DA. The bad thing is, I had walked by this same box of stuff at a local tractor/old engine swap meet for about 5 years and never gave it a second look, something this last fall said buy it. I always remembered it because I thought the box looked "neat". I just want to make sure I can the stuff I don't need labled right and into the han
  8. I also posted this down in the Chevrolet forum as well. Please forgive the intursion, as I am not a Chevrolet guy. I had bought a nice box of early ignition parts, mostly for the Dodge Brothers ignition rotors that were in there, and in going through the box I found these spark plug wire terminals. I am just trying to identify what they are from so I make sure to lable them properly, I am thinking mid-1920's? Also is there a call for the originals or are these being reproduced? Thanks for your time and help, it is appreciated.<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
  9. Thanks for everyone that helped, I was able to find the catalog that I was looking for. Found a very nice reprint. But now I have a new problem, I have found an original 1932 A.E.A. Electrical Service Parts Catalog that is missing some of the back pages. So, if anyone has a reprint/copy/original of the 1932 version that can help me out with the missing pages that would be fantastic. The one that I have is missing pages 175 to the end, this includes part of the Motor tuck/Bus/Tractor/Misc. section, the Magneto section and the alphabetical index. No real pertinent missing information, I woul

  11. Do you have a hub/wheel puller? The puller threads onto the hub and is used to remove the wheel.
  12. #4 Model A shock arm #5 Model A front axle spring perch #6 Model A transmission gear, either 1st/reverse or 2nd/3rd sliding gear #12 Model A steering arm, passenger side #15 Model A transmission main shaft #16 Model A accelerator bracket Numbers 8 and 10 are tail light brackets, but for what I do not know, but not model A. Number 13 may be a model A window riser, or later. The rest are probably later V-8 parts.
  13. Remember, there never was a model A with the designation AR. The AR designation is a suffix on the part nuber that means it has been replaced or superceded and that it is meant only for repair or replacement. Part numbers into the V-8 era still carried the AR suffix.
  14. I wouldn't consider a Hudson to be an "off" brand. The show Deep Sea Detectives did an episode a couple of years ago on the ferry that went down in Lake Michigan. The Hudsons were in one of the rail cars.
  15. Saw this on sitting off the road and snapped a couple of pictures. So, what is this trailer queen?
