  1. It's even more ridiculous to believe that you could squoosh s Continental to a cube that size
  2. This was the era of American space age excess like the 59 Cad, The Chromesmobile, The Exner Fins so this car dovetails right in. It might have influenced the Powell Motors Homer
  3. In "Seabiscuit" in the opening scene the caption reads something like, "Pimlico" 1932" and up pulls a 36 Buick. I might be off on the dates. The car also has an Antique Automobile plate 0n the rear
  4. If you can convert a Corvair to electric power then seats should be child's play. Put Tesla seats in it or lawn chairs from Home Depot
  5. Yes, Model T auxilliary transmission two speed
  6. I doubt that anyone who is a regular member of this site and club would be interested in that device. What part of it was made in '23?
  7. I prefer the dehydrated units because shipping is far cheaper. They can be folded to fit into a flat rate box. Soak 'em in ATF for a week and Bob's yer uncle
  8. That is a very well done conversion, not some slapdash contraption built of available scrounged materials by someone escaping the dust bowl I think. A craftsman built that coach
  9. Mopar used those lug bolts for years and years. There must be a gazillion of them out there. Post on a Mopar specific forum
  10. The best thing to do right now is to find the pump and take pictures of it and any any plumbing going to the pump and engine and post them here so it can be determined what it is that you actually have
  11. Looks very British to me and it certainly is not a Delage. Do the tail lamps have any markings, like Lucas?
  12. That part seems decades newer than 1934
  13. The picture is the answer to your question. 1 1/8 inch. Any good parts store will have them
  14. The car is taking medication??
  15. Presumably, you do know how to drive a stick shift
  16. The award for the safest OEM jack has to be the unit supplied by Austin Healey. It will not fit under the car if it has a flat. Gotta love the Brits
  17. Te myth that will never die. Ration stickers were issued to people not vehicles. They were based upon your importance to the war effort. Truck drivers got more than Joe Lunchbox and his wife. Ownership of a truck did not make you a truck driver
  18. In the past 50 years, or so, many irrefutable facts have arisen in the automotive hobbies. One being, 6 volt is no good whatsoever. Generators are worse. You need an alternator. Drum brakes are by nature unsafe. Same for single reservoir master cylinders. You and everyone is going to die in the flaming wreckage. A 47 Buick Roadmaster cannot keep up with modern traffic and needs an LS engine swap and an overdrive automatic because pushing that extra pedal is too tiring for the 21st century driver
  19. Oh boy!! Time to share all of the anecdotal stories that you heard Ol' Uncle Booger and his cronies spin down at the bar and grill
  20. When I worked in the British car dealerships we called it The Flying Doorstop. We soon realized that was a misnomer as they rarely moved under their own power
  21. A quick Google search tells me that Kay produced exhaust systems fo marine Diesel 4ngines
  22. Since there were injuries we now have felony hit and run and potential joint time and permanent revocation of drivers license. We can only hope
