  1. John, Thanks. Yes the owner was meticulous in maintaining the car for more than 20 years. He was 90 when he passed away and had taken the car to at least two car shows last year despite some very serious heal issues. He also owned a beautiful Ferrari Dino but this was his favourite car by far. I just hope I can find it a good home and an owner who will continue to keep it in the condition it is in now.
  2. Located in Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada this beautiful 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass was owned by a dear friend who recently passed away. It was cherished and maintained meticulously by a mechanically knowledgeable gentleman for many years primarily as a show car . Excellent conditon throughout with recently REBUILT matching numbers 330CID/290HP engine (rebuilt correct Rochester 4 barrel carburetor) with 2 speed Jetaway Transmission. The suspension was rebuilt with new front coil springs and rearced leaf rears and the car sits as it came from the factory. This car is loaded with dual exhaust, power steering, power brakes, power windows, radio and working AIR CONDITONING! The body is straight with no filler and no rust with clean undersides, chrome and stainless trim are excellent, engine compartment detailed for show. Top is in very good condition, Paint shows well but not perfect. The white vinyl interior which perfectly compliments the red exterior is in excellent condition .This car has won many trophies at car shows both in Ontario and in the US and was judged very highly at a Oldsmobile Club National Meet. This car and looks and runs beautifully! Included with sale are several books , manuals and many spare parts. *SOLD* but will consider reasonable offers. More photos information and viewing are available by request. . This is in my opinion a high #3 car. Come and take a look and judge for yourself. The photo of the front and grille does no show the paint well since it has not been washed since last fall when put away for winter storage. :-) Trade for antique car is possible. What do you have?

  3. Now if beautiful Ford was priced at $39k Canadian I might be tempted.. :-) BTW was the car built in Windsor because if so my dad might have helped to build it?
  4. I'd be interested in this car if the needles of the tic-tac-tach were the correct shade of red. That is a big turn off for me......besides the fact that I don't have the money to buy it.:-)
  5. Matt, The comment about the "yellow throttle return spring" made me laugh. Several years ago I had a very nice looking 1966 Corvette that I would take to cruise night and local shows. It was a nice looking car but had many incorrect parts although to the non "expert" eye very original in appearance. Not an evening would pass that a certain other 1966 Corvette owner who had bought a Bloomington Gold award winning car would come to look at my car and "tsk tsk " about the alternator numbers or hose clamps etc. being "wrong" and what I should do to correct this sacrilege. One night he stopped by my car to inform me that every 1966 Corvette seat cover was attached with exactly 13 hog rings! Now in the early1960's I happened to work at Chrysler Canada in Windsor Ontario and on occasion one of my jobs was attaching seat covers onto seats. I told the "expert" that at Chrysler the assembly line moved too fast to permit anyone from counting hog rings and that I doubted that a line worker at the Corvette assembly plant had anymore time than I did given that the assembly quality was pretty similar between makes at that time. Similarly I chuckle when an "expert" criticizes an old car because the cadmium plating on a particular part is the "wrong" colour. My main job at Chrysler was the cadmium plating of small parts such as nuts, bolts and brackets etc. Depending upon the demand for the parts on the assembly line I either had time to put a nice silver finish on the parts or if in a rush the parts were barely coated the colour could have a distinct yellow hue. Variations in colour were common from hour to hour as parts were plated. So much for what is and isn't correct. I enjoyed seeing your ads Matt and wish that you would continue posting them here also although I am on your mailing list.
  6. Nowhere does Motoringicons say that the car is ready for a judged car show. He mentions "driving and enjoyment" which this car would provide in spades. I see nowhere that the car is in anyway misrepresented I really don't mind people "expert" in a particular car pointing out incorrect additions, deletions because in this way we all learn something of value. So long as postings are polite I personally have no problem with someone critiquing a car that is for sale. I miss the ads from Matt Harwood and wish that he would continue to do so but I understand his viewpoint entirely.
  7. Can you please post the location of where the car might be viewed?
  8. For sale I have a 1955 and a 1960 Ford clocks. Both are excellent condition and appear to be rebuilt or reconditioned although I cannot verify but they both work. They were found by a widow of a old car hobbiest friend of mine who passed away a few years ago during a garage cleaning. She has asked me to dispose of them for her. I Price is $100US +shipping each for the clocks.
  9. I am selling 3 Oldsmobile clocks for the widow of a long time car hobbiest. There is one each identified as 1957, 1958, 1959. All are in excellent cosmetic condition and all have been tested and work fine. I suspect that they have been restored at some time in the past but have no documentation to prove. I will send photos to anyone interest in purchasing a clock. My price is $100US each plus shipping. I am located in Canada and can ship from Minnesota but US Customs wil demand a $10US import fee also. If interested please PM me.
  10. Thank you. I knew I would get a quick response on this website. That is much appreciated.
  11. Wayne, Apology not necessary. It is sometimes difficult to interpret meaning with forum postings but I should have read your posting as humour especially with the (lol) Sorry for any misunderstanding. Have a great day! My world is full of smiles also (especially after Monday!). :-)
  12. Wayne, ? Can you identify the clock or does sharing of your knowledge depend upon whether or not there is a profit motive on my part?
  13. I recently acquired, for the purpose of assisting the widow of an old car hobbiest, to sell,for her, a small collection of 5 old car clocks from the 1950's. All appear to work and are probably NOS. There are two Ford, two Oldsmobile and one other only identified as 1950? I would like to know what make and preferably which model this clock came from or belongs to. Attached is a photo. It is 12 1/4" long and 2 3/4" wide. The back identifies it as a Westclox, LaSalle, Ill. I have tested the clock and it works perfectly. Any help identifying this clock for me would be greatly appreciated. I am posting this as a favour to an elderly woman and have no intention of profiting from any subsequent sale of these items.
  14. Ron, This is fantastic. I will print it out for future reference. I appreciate all the time and trouble to research this for me. Dave
  15. Thanks for the quick response and information. Well I guess that they do fit my old Packard as it was a 2103 model with the 356CID engine.
  16. Years ago I bought a box of 10 point sets for my 1947 Packard Super Clipper. They were sold to as being correct for the IGT-4023 distributor on my car. They are not and I have been unable to find what vehicle.these point sets fit. If anyone has an old Autolite catalogue and can identify the correct application for these points I would be very grateful. I am cleaning up my garage and don't want to toss them out as I am sure someone somewhere can use them. Thanks.
  17. To the top. I am cleaning my garage and still have these point sets. I am hoping someone might be able to help identify which vehicle these point sets fit. The cross references provided seem not to be correct. Thanks
  18. I agree with the above. One of the best ads yet. I wish that they were all this informative.
  19. I am still negotiating from long distance. The car will obviously take some very detailed and personal scrutiny. I have advised the owner of the incorrect and value deflating items. I think were I to buy it I would leave the engine and trans since overdrive is such a nice feature but would try to source correct fabric and redo the interior ($$$). To bring the asking price down to what is a more reasonable number will doubtlessly require negotiating skills beyond my capabilities but I will try. I would definitely buy the car at $20000 but that's a discount of $15000!! Not much hope for that. It is a gem that should be preserved and protected so we will see. Thanks to all for the advice and encouragment
