  1. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

  10. I have a very nice pair of electric side lamps currently listed on eBay of the style typically installed on the door post near the roof line of town cars and sedans of more expensive makes such as Pierce Arrow. They were also used as more traditional side lamps on electric automobiles such as Baker, Columbia, Detroit, Waverley, etc. They could also be installed as an aftermarket accessory of any automobile is so desired. These are smaller and more dainty than the typical side lamps of this style. They also have a lens that shines straight down so if they are mounted on the door post of an enclosed car, they serve as running board courtesy lamps. Auction ends Sunday night, June 11, 2017.

  18. I registered a username on the Kaiser Frazer Club Forum four days ago but have not heard back from the administrator so I can start posting. Does anyone know how long it typically takes between registration and approval? I cannot find a link on the club forum to contact the administrator directly. Thank you.
  19. I have this nifty little whisk broom currently listed on eBay. The auction ends Sunday evening, March 29. It advertises Western Automobile Co. of St. Paul, MN. I believe it dates from 1915 or 1916 based on the Franklin automobile graphic. (The advertisement in the fourth photo is from the October 1916 edition of "The St. Paul Medical Journal." Note that the automobile graphic is the same as what is embossed on the whisk broom cover.) eBay item number 301571261998 Here a the link to the listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1915-Franklin-Automobile-Dealer-Car-Whisk-Broom-Western-Automobile-Co-St-Paul-MN-/301571261998?hash=item46370c462e&vxp=mtr If you have any specific questions, please submit them via eBay's "Ask a question" function at the bottom of the listing.

  20. Bob Wieking: I received your private message. My father has a folder of Veerac information that he compiled including original sales literature as well as information he copied from the Anoka County Historical Society. My dad also has the 1912 Minnesota license plate that was registered to the Veerac Company. The Minnesota Historical Society has some factory photos of complete trucks from which you can order high resolution scans (however they are not indexed under Veerac in their catalog/database). I will look them up for you. One Veerac truck still in exists in Montana. There are the remains of another in the Anoka area. I understand that the Packard Skagway Street Car still survives. If that is true, it means that the remains of yet another Veerac survive as Martin Itjen repurposed the Veerac omnibus body and mounted it on the Packard chassis as indicated by the photos of the on the Fountainhead Museum website. Some Veeracs were sold out of San Francisco so the Skagway Veerac most likely shipped from there. I will send you an email. Erik Johnson Minneapolis, MN
