  1. Details.... Recent coil, mechanical advance, spark plug caps, carb floats, needles and jets. Top end rebuild approx. 10,000 miles ago. Breakwell & Green stainless exhaust system. Upgraded steering head bearings. Original paint except for fuel tank. Silicone knee pads on tank. Ethanol never used. 

    Everything is located in Central Iowa 50632

    Listening to offers of at least $10,000 for the machine and parts.  I reserve the right to reject any offer. I will decide when offers appear to stop.        Thank you.   John

  2. My experience was to send the cracked grill to Wrights Custom Chrome in Grafton Ohio for plating.

    They stripped the original finish before repairing the cracks. Next they sent the grill back to me with the first copper coat applied. I fabricated a new crank hole cover in steel and sent it and the grill back for them to plate. 

    See pics. Badge is original.655847918_37DodgeBros.MCgrill.JPG.8454cd16a89359b1081a296803b7a30b.JPG102_2281.JPG.9fefe9c4ea06c5edb786e9946cd21ea0.JPG

    Might be best not to attempt to fix the crack. If this is to be re-plated, the plater would be the best option to repair this once the copper layer is on. Just my experience. As others have noted, this is a nice and hard to find part and should restore up nice. 

    I agree. From experience let the plater fix it during their process. 

  4. This heater was in the truck when it arrived. Vintage and maker are unknown. No sign of the makers name anywhere. 

    My question concerns the 3 vent doors. It appears that they were chrome plated and striped with black 1/8" horizontal stripes 1/8" apart. Leaving a 1/8" strip of visible chrome between the black stripes. 

    HOWEVER.......  There is a trace of 1/4"  chrome visible along the bottom of one of the doors. The finish is completely gone on the 2 remaining doors. No trace of chrome or black. I know that all 3 were striped. 

    THE QUESTION IS......... where all 3 striped with 1 wider chrome exposure along the lower edge ?   See pic    Thanks    John100_3384.JPG.fd4b6d6f2884f34153067087c850e495.JPG

    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 electric trucks are on the near horizon. Be the first in your neighborhood to own one. I have restored the 6th Milburn built and oldest known survivor. Truck is located in central Iowa. Thanks for consideration. PM me.   John
