  1. What not a single mention of the Ford Model A or the MGB two of the mainstays of the classic car market
  2. I would think the original silver ghost. Rolls royce have insured it for 40Mil
  3. Sorry they closed Geocities, so I went all out and got my own URL grahampaigeaustralia.com Go nuts. I dont have any digrams on body parts, but what exactly are you looking for
  4. Divco Truck. Often used for milk delivery
  5. http://www.members.optusnet.com.au/neils...edan_Spence.JPG This is one in Australia
  6. I agree Hupp, Hupp and Graham used the same wires in 28 and 29. Those are the same as on our Graham
  7. Its Graham not Graham Paige. I would <span style="font-weight: bold"><span style="text-decoration: underline">guess </span></span>early 30's. (Pre Blue streak model)
  8. Its Graham not Graham Paige. I would guess early' 30s (pre Blue streak model).

  10. is it actually a Cord? Graham and Hupmobile purchased the body dies from Cord and produced the Hollywood and Skylark. Could it be one of those? Is it front wheel drive and does it have the headlights in the guards? That should be a good indicator to if it is actually a Cord or a Graham/Hupmobile
  11. not an uncommon accurance. they are made of die cast or pot metal and weaken over time. Over here we have have new ones cast in brass when we require them. Good luck finding some (try this guy nbutters@eagle.ca. He does new castings of Graham bits and advertises on the GOCI website)
  12. Saw printed on the rear spare wheel cover of a Model A. "Driving the kids inheritance"... I have told dad, spend all ya got, I don't want to argue with my sisters, but remember the cars mine..... (Yes its in writing)
  13. There used to be an Austro Daimler in the VDC, I think it was owned by Frank Hands(dec), not sure what happened to it though. Frank died in the 80's, so it probably went to Europe or the US after he passed. It was an early 20's tourer with the second screen (Cant remember if it was duel cowl, but dont think so). Ask around, there will be pictures somewhere, could put you in contact with the archivist for the VDC if you wish.
  14. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Ivan_Saxton</div><div class="ubbcode-body">You might find that Mal Grant of VCCA (Vic) has registration record of it Neil, and then you could tell people the engine number, for instance. Ivan </div></div> He wasn't interested, wasn't a car guy, just wanted to know what his father drove.... Im thinking the body has got most of the guys here confused....
  15. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Manuel</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Any idea of the locations Neil? I bet there is a good story to go with the fallen tree pic. Manuel in Oz </div></div> Guy found it in fathers photo album, has a photo of an Austin 7 hooked up to the same caravan (Was a set up as the caravan feet are still on the ground)
  16. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Dave@Moon</div><div class="ubbcode-body">It's a 1935 Ford Model 750 Phaeton. </div></div> Nope.. But close
  17. Got this in an email, The guy wanted to know what it was (thought it was a Graham). Thought you would find it interesting.. Ok what is it?
  18. There is a going one of those over here, I remember following it on a bay to birdwood about 10 years ago, will have to search my photos to find it. You may also have a look at restored cars, they did an article about one a few years ago
  19. 1930-31 Graham. Check the taillight (Same shape as the badge) and the door handles. Big centre wires started in 1930 (They were small centre cap before that), also small sunvisor. Six wheel equeiped, with the now rare full width bumper, nice car. By the look of the bonnet in comparison to the wheels it would be a standard or special 6 (Hard to tell the difference) Interestingly it has no sidelights, they are usually mounted on the chrome strip running over the bulkhead
  20. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: daniel kiley</div><div class="ubbcode-body">it looks better than this.</div></div> I hope so, that one needed a complete ground up restoration (All the wood was ruined, two of the long runners were full of putty) It is getting better, just really slowly
  21. like this? Again. post pics for a reasonable assesment, but a fully restored sedan in no 1 condition would bring about 20-25K over here (may differ over there but I doubt it)
  22. Pictures... Condition is everything and the value will vary depending on it Also need more detail about the car, body will change value, so will wheel type (not quite so much)
  23. Pics, pics, where are the pics.. Us foreigners miss out on seeing these things and have to live vicariously though your pictures
  24. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Dave@Moon</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Peter, I take it that those 115-120 degree days I hear about are during the other 2 months out of the year. Are you going to be using the car those months as well? If so will modern fuels (which in open systems begin to boil away at those temperatures anyway, without any engine heat) be able to cope with those conditions on a regular basis? Will you be dealing with a boiling/leaking fuel from the carb/fuel lines/etc.?</div></div> Would have thought leaks in the fuel lines would be a maintenance issue, nothing to do with new fuel, if the new fuel is eating your lines, use modern lines <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Dave@Moon</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Is the cooling system up to these temperatures as well? </div></div> Would have thought, it would be as up to it as it was when new, if <span style="text-decoration: underline">properly maintained</span>... What might present an issue would be traffic. Dont know the situation where you are, but bumper to bumper traffic may overload the cooling as they were not designed for that situation. I think all of the reliability issues people seem to have relate to cars that are not used regularly or not maintained regularly (well from what I have seen). those that are used regularly tend to run better, so get out and use your car. How about you test it for a month, keep the other car as a backup and run the A, see how you go
