  1. I think he is going to have to put it on sale though to sell it. Most likely a drastic sale. Franklin made some nice cars but I don't see this one really exciting anyone as presented and especially not at 30G.
  2. Those ancient snow tires on the back tend to say I haven't been a daily driver in many decades.
  3. Hey Steve the new toy is not the Auburn. Something new only Ed knows about and he even liked it.
  4. My 51 Dodge's initials are F P O S. or atleast that's what it's used to being called for the last year. Now my 31 Auburn is named Victoria. It's going to take alot for me to refer to her as anything else. Most the rest don't have names. Though I really need to name the new toy. What do you think I should call her Ed?
  5. Thanks. I'll pass it along so he can wire up the later coil he has to get it running. They can worry about authenticity later if desired.
  6. I can't quite tell where the wires go once they leave the coil on the modern setup. Can you tell me where they are hooked? Thanks for the photo, Randy
  7. I finally heard back from my friend. He did have the car running for about 25 seconds prior to calling me. He shut it off to do something, not related to the problem and it wouldn't fire again. The coil is not giving any fire. The three posts on the top are hot but he can't get any spark out of the side terminal that feeds the distributor. The wire was pretty much bare and he taped it up, but it may be shorting internally? Can the coil be serviced? If not by him, is there someone that rebuilds them? If not, are there original style replacements available? If not that, can and how could a more modern coil be hooked up? I saw a picture on Google images of a 1916 Chevy at Volo I believe that looked like they were using a modern coil. I couldn't really find any good images of an original coil. If someone has one, please feel free to post it so we have a visual. I'm not near the car, it's over an hour away, so I don't have a photo of it.
  8. He's posted several photos over the few times he posted these for sale and they all seem different but from the same batch with the same boxes in the back ground. Being he's trying to only do a local sale, seems the chance of a scam being less. Especially since he won't take my extra money to ship them to me. I think he is hyping the items in hopes of making them seem more desirable. I mean at the price he's at, it's not much of a risk. There are only so many guys buying literature and alot of guys don't like selling it at shows because it gets ruined so easy and alot of people don't want to take the time to stop and dig through a box when there is so much else to see. I think i have someone lined up to take care of it now. Thanks for all the help and suggestions.
  9. So what will the ones I can pick up with my new acquisition look like?
  10. I think he is figuring someone from Reno will drive out to pick them up for themselves. It was on the Reno Craigslist so he wasn't advertising nationally. I just search nationwide for literature and found the listing. To a degree I understand where he is coming from in that he wasn't expecting someone from 2000 miles away to find the ad and want the stuff. That being said though he has dropped the price several times and can't find a buyer. They are really priced right now, though they were a good deal a few months ago at twice the price. If I was trying to sell something and no one wanted it so that I had to price it very low, but someone came along offering me very fair money but I had to do a little more to make the sale, I know what I would do. That's me though.
  11. From the sounds of it there is no fed Ex in his town and sounds like it's a pickup at the door deal. I hate to deal with a non forum member for a 3rd party, unless someone can vouch for them. Been scammed a couple of times in my business by pros and it leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
  12. I can check with him about a shipping store but I think he said his town consists of 2 trucks stops and an exit ramp for the interstate from what he mentioned. For some reason he's a here it is, that's the extent of work I'm doing guy, unfortunately. I've always told the sellers it's alot easier if they handle it themselves than to involve a 3rd party and they'll even make a few bucks doing it. Seems about a 50/50 chance of wether the seller will help out.
  13. Thanks for the kind words and the help with that Hudson lot. I'm very grateful for that.
