  1. 4 new in June 2019 never mounted 650 x 16 bias ply 4" white wall Deluxe All Weather tires. Ordered incorrectly from Lucas Tire and not noticed until I unwrapped them 2 days ago. Current retail is $250 each. $200.00 each owns them. See pics. They still have the blue protective coating. Thanks. John Located in Iowa 50632
  2. I APOLOGIZE NOW FOR HIGHJACKING THIS THREAD. I have a 1911 Baker Model O Light Truck chassis ( Model No. 0E 11285 Lot No. 138 Load 2000 ) that I saved from the scrap yard FOR SALE It would not be complex or require a large amount of parts to restore. It would be ambitious for sure and very satisfying. Since so many trucks were and are today built for a specified use it could be fitted with a simple wood flat bed and phone booth style cab of wood or metal. A restorer could purchase a motor and all electrical components for it and hide or disguise them. It's all available. Modern elect
  3. Trying to contact Geoff Thorle or Thorpe in New Zealand. He had/has a Baker car. Anyone know him or his whereabouts please put me in contact with him. Thank you. John Worden PM me
  4. Thanks for the replies. A silver grill on a black truck seems like a nice contrast. John
  5. 1911 BAKER ELECTRIC LIGHT TRUCK Model O chassis for sale. Model # OE 11285 Lot # 138 2000 lb. rating. EXTREMELY RARE. I Saved it from the scrap yard. The wood spokes, wheel rims and solid rubber tires can be replicated. A simple wood flat bed and phone booth style cab could be constructed to resemble service bodies correct for the period. All new power and control components are available. Serious fabrication skills would be necessary as well. New electric trucks will soon be available and tours for vintage electrics are a thing now. Please notify me of the whereabouts
  6. We finished the restoration in 2015 of a 1915 Milburn Light Electric Coupe on it's 100th anniversary. Sixth Milburn built and earliest known to have survived. APOLOGIES FOR HIGHJACKING THIS THREAD.
  7. Did you find it and do you have questions? Thanks. John
  8. I don't know of a registry but I have chassis # OE11285 Lot # 138 which is a 1911 Baker Electric Light Truck. It is listed for sale on Ebay now. John
  9. Thank you. I like the contrast too. I'm leaning toward silver. I recently acquired a quart of DUPONT chrome aluminum alkyd enamel probably made in the 70s and no longer available. I think it would be perfect. Could you post a full view of your Tourer? Where they only available outside the US? John
  10. It's time to decide grill color on the 37 DB. The truck will be all black with red wheels and grey interior as original. Generally it appears that grill color was the same as body color. I wonder though if grill color was optional. Any thoughts on this? Thanks. John
  11. I suggest that you grind off the weld trying to leave as much of the underlying original metal in place initially. Carefully inspect the remains for indications of attachment to inner structure. Then remove enough more metal to expose the inner support structure. Working from the inner outward restore the structure and finish sheet metal to original contour. Attach hinges as intended with restored sets or replacements. It will will then become an exorcise in door fitment to properly place the hinges. It can be done. Luck. John
  12. See pics. I need the yellow metal strips ( right door and left door ) that fit at the front ( dog leg shape ) and rear edge ( straight ) of the door opening in a 37 Dodge Brothers P/up. Thanks. John
  13. Problem solved. I was trying an SAE bolt I thought was 1/2"- 20 It wouldn't go. It was metric. A 1/2-20 bolt fits perfectly. I should be able to find a suitable drain plug with that thread. Thanks for the suggestions. John
  14. I'll try 1/8 NPT but I think it will be too small.
  15. Drain hole not fuel pick up tube. Pick up tube is flared. Drain hole is not flared and 2/3 threads deep.
  16. Seems odd that it isn't a tapered thread plus it's a very shallow thread of only 3 or so threads. Once I figure out the thread I'll need a good fuel proof thread sealer.
  17. I would also like to know what female thread is in the tank drain hole. A flare nut fits and a pipe plug does not. I would have thought a pipe plug was used. John
  18. You betcha! Your parts saved the truck project. John
  19. Ok Dave. The tank can be junk other than the neck. Thanks. Be safe on the road. John
