  1. If the driver is ready to go somewhere; there are 2 jack-stands, under the front!
  2. Thank you, for the update!
  3. I just noticed #48, Leonard Schwartz of Altoona PA; had a 1919 Ford in the show. The last I saw that car was in, about 1976, still in Altoona,then. I have no idea where it is now. I was in his maze of garages; and purchased several old Harley-Davidsons. Sadly, places like that are all gone now. intimeold
  4. " Does the lack of documentation reduce the value" Of course it does. Any Chevrolet, Chevelle , Camaro, Corvette, with" correct papers", means a lot to potential buyers. With every Hi-Po GM car, and others too; one of the first things the buyer asks, Let me see the documentation. Buyers really research these cars. intimeold

  9. I have read this post and I am confused about the strategy. I also know the Kaiser engine and transmission history. You have a really nice car; maybe I am missing something, I don't know. By putting any V-8 in a 1949 Kaiser; is certainly going to change the balance of the car. When I say balance, I am using a broad term. The Engine change would alter the car, and it would be a modified. In some shows it would have to be put in a modified class. The picture of the car, you referenced, in Hemmings; is a modified car. Not only has the engine been changed; but it surely looks more modern, by the way it sets. So probably, brakes, suspension, and other systems were altered. If you are looking to be classified as modified, sure do the change. Oh sure we have built street rods, and many other types of cars, for our own use and customers; but they ended up with a modified car. I guess, I saying your car is too nice to go through that. Then selling it, as a modified all the "original", buyers would be turned off. Maybe do a bit more research before; jumping off the edge. intimeold
  10. Wait! What is that guy doing at the left rear wheel area? "We have a leak here"!
  11. I suppose this ruling is why most of us try to do as much of our own auto/truck repair.
  12. I have had a few Crosley's, and they all had a Borg/Warner T-92 transmission. But I haven't seen all years, of Crosleys That transmission pictured, is not a T-92 intimeold
  13. Well, That may explain why your number doesn't show up in the usual Indian charts. I had a couple of Verticals, but all had the original ignition. And Yes, the original magneto was junk. I'll mark that number down in my files, thank you for posting and finding this information. Do you have a GT-40? The most beautiful car ever made!
