  1. Here you go. The car currently has a Rands windshield as I posted earlier although the filler board is correct for a Troy. 1910 IHC Model F roadster. 418 manufactured, during 1910-11 model years. A handful survive in various condition and states of completeness. Four cylinder, air-cooled engine with overhead camshaft and hemispherical combustion chambers. Two speeds forward with a massive, leather-faced cone clutch. The 1911 models had a three speed transmission. The rear seat is detachable and a trunk can be put in its place. My father also has the original the trunk for the car. This is the only known surviving Model F roadster with a two passenger rear seat. Two surviving roadsters have a single "mother in law seat" as shown in original sales literature and the remainder have trunks. IHC also manufactured a high-wheel version of this car, the 1911 Model G. Very few were made and there is one surviving example that is in the possession of the Henry Ford Museum (see second photo). A water cooled version of the Model F roadster was also manufactured, the 1911 Model K, two of which survive.
  2. Thank you for the replies. I inquired on behalf of my father - he doesn't use the computer. Neither of us has the talent to make the clips and, unfortunately, an extremely talented local resource who could have very easily reproduced them recently passed away. I'll contact NC Coil as well as some spring firms listed on the internet. The windshield is for a 1910 IHC Model F roadster (four cylinder and pneumatic tires) which my father has owned for 69 years. Original equipment was a Troy windshield which was removed when the car was originally sold in order to lower the price. Troy windshields are not very common and my father was finally able to obtain one. My dad currently has a Rands windshield on the car but he just finished restoring the Troy but still needs the clips.
  3. I am looking for an individual or company that can fabricate the spring steel clips shown in the photos below. Any referrals would be greatly appreciated. The clips are for a brass Troy windshield. The clips keep the windshield in either the fully upright position or in the folded down position. I can provide original but rough examples, drawings and photos of the clips. Thank you.

  5. WANTED for 1910-11 IHC Model F Roadster: the two brass parting strips (channels) that separate the upper and lower panes on a brass Troy windshield. See photo below - the red arrows are pointing at the parting strips. The parting strips are 39.5" long. The outer measurement of the channel is 5/16". The inner measurement of the channel is 1/4" x 1/4". Refer to drawing below. I mainly need just the parting strips but if you have a partial or complete brass Troy windshield, I would also be interested in purchasing. If you have parting strips from another brand of windshield such as Rands, Victor, Standard, Metzger, etc. that I may be able to adapt to my situation, I may also be interested in them. Or, if you know someone who can fabricate the parting strips, please let me know. Thank you for your help.

  8. Definitely NOT Model T Ford. 1909-12 Fords were equipped from the factory with double twist Rubes or Nonpareil horns. 1913-14 and early 1915 were equipped with single twist Rubes or Nonpareil. The horn in question is slightly larger than the double twist 1909-12 above and substantially larger than the 1913-14 and early 1915 single twist. Also, the Nonpareils and Rubes described above had brackets attached to the body of the horn, not to the inlet of the horn. I realize my horn could have been used on many cars - either as original factory equipment or aftermarket. Would like to know if anyone is familiar with this horn and if it was used as original factory equipment on certain makes and models. I know that it is a shot in the dark.
  9. Does anybody know the maker of this brass horn? And - the needle in the haystack question: does anybody know what make automobile(s) this was used on? I cannot find any markings on it such as Rubes or Nonpareil. I believe it is for a larger car. Height is 13". Bell is 8.5" x 6.5". It was originally painted black over the brass although someone painted more black over the original black. The bezel is nickel-plated over brass and it has a through-the-dash mounting bracket. Thank you.
  10. I sent a private message to mikewest on Sept. 12 but did not hear back from him so I presume he is not interested in them. If anyone else is interested in the mag couplings I posted on Sept 11 above, feel free to send me a private message. Price is $80, includes USPS postage with tracking. Here are the measurements - six pieces total: Two notched spacers are 1 1/2" diameter, 7/8" bore, 9/16" length The four couplers are 1 1/2" diameter at the spline end and 1" diameter at the opposite end. Two of the couplers have 3/8" bores (one coupler is drilled for a side pin). Length of each coupler is 1" excluding the splines. One coupler has a 5/8" bore and is drilled for a side pin. Length of coupler is 1" excluding the spline. One coupler has a tapered bore - 5/8" narrowing down to 1/2" at the spline end and is machined/notched for a key. Length of couple is 3/4" excluding splines. The above can be mixed and matched with either spacer for whatever combination you would need. Also, obviously the bores could be drilled out to accept a larger shaft if required, etc.
  11. Mike: If you are interested, I have these NOS magneto couplings for sale. My father purchased them from Fenstermacher Automobile Supply here in Minneapolis about 65 years ago.
