  1. Here is a cartoonist's look at the Green Dragon race cars...
  2. Would sell in a New York minute, if it were in Europe. From the looks of it, the top goes down. So many cars of the era had landau bars on a closed car that it confused me a minute.
  3. There's only one book in print about Peerless. You can find out about it on the AACA Peerless Forum thread "Peerless Research Findings" if you go back to Fall, 2020, Peerless Automobiles In the Brass Era: 1900-1915. 282 pages, hardcover, Alex Cauthen, author. No, parts aren't easy to find, and there's only ONE book you can buy, but think of it as the opposite of a later model collector car, the Corvette. Someone told me there are 600 books about them. Plus, there were 1.5 million made. Only 108,000 Peerlesses were made, we think, and about 367 remain....so they're not at every car
  4. Hi, A1cnc, Welcome to the AACA Peerless Forum. The Peerless Motor Car Co. has a fascinating story....founded 1865, manufactured laundry equipment, car parts, bicycles, beer, trucks & automobiles(1900-1931). You must have talked to Anthony C. in Maine. Between he and his late father, they have had quite a few Peerlesses pass through their hands. I think it's a 1925 6-72 5-Passenger Touring Phaeton, $2,285 new. It's splitting hairs to say it's a 6-72 instead of a 6-70, because they're the same mechanically. A few body changes in '25, rad shell, hood, mostly. 289 cu. in. six, sometimes c
  5. It's a suburb of one of the states biggest cities, 93,000 in the Kalispell metro area, biggest in NW Montana. The amount of traffic around there is annoying enough we decided not to move there. I happen to live on a road that goes 3 miles from Columbia Falls, albeit 4 1/2 hours S.
  6. Hopefully this will work --- not a bad looking car --- I wonder if it's an older restoration? I believe this was the first year for the 212 Cu. In. All American Six engine. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1040219573088474/?ref=search&referral_code=marketplace_search&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A2b70925c-a14e-455d-bd49-9be89b1ebddc
  7. .........earlier: Posted Thursday at 08:19 PM "If the Brothers in Virginia don't work out abbey-wise, my cousin Guido told me about a much more exclusive one in the mountains above Boulder that takes the cake as far as a higher spiritual plane. No vow of silence or medieval robes but you had to have been to other planets. I believe it was called Cosmos Abbey." The place really existed in 1975. Must be the most exclusive club on earth...or Colorado, anyway. Don't know who they w
  8. If the Brothers in Virginia don't work out abbey-wise, my cousin Guido told me about a much more exclusive one in the mountains above Boulder that takes the cake as far as a higher spiritual plane. No vow of silence or medieval robes but you had to have been to other planets. I believe it was called Cosmos Abbey.
  9. What with your first collection wiped out with a sinkhole, I didn't think you'd recovered to create another that was more than a shadow of the previous one {R.I.P. '48 Tucker, Type 101 Bugatti, and the '30 Type B Tesla Pierce-Arrow}. If you have a stock of Corsicana Fruitcake from Corsicana, Texas I will consider buying some, if that will relieve you of some of your burdens, and your Cord 812.
  10. I saw on Facebook Marketplace an interesting car somebody in Columbia Falls, MT has for sale. $15,750: (At least this isn't one of those cars back east you have to drive 2,000 miles to look at!)
  11. Glad to find out what happened to the 1929 Peerless you bought at the Indiana auction. Have you been able to find out much about Peerless in your research, or from the Roaring 20s Museum where it came from? It is one of about 8,000 Six-61s produced, it is a First Series, and the 3,289th Peerless registered in the series. The Continental six it had was 214.7 cu. in. and 62 HP. The company introduced it early in 1929 at the New York Auto Show and it was a big hit. Maybe you've seen the ads on ebay for the new model...telling of 8,236 orders being taken in one day and price for Sedans at $1,395.
  12. Every once in awhile I do a general search of the Forums to see if discussions of Peerlesses come up. Too bad no one tried to list this question on the actual AACA Peerless Forum here. I went through all this 17 months ago when the Roaring 20s Collection went up for sale in Indiana. I thought the engine looked wrong and the engine ser. #s were definitely wrong. I decided it might be a Plymouth engine, and contacted the auction co. about it, but as usual they ignored me and neither changed their ad copy or passed it on to the buyer. Other than that, it looks like a well-preserved 1929 Peerless.
  13. I was hoping to see a Tipo 101 Bugatti or a 1938 Talbot-Lago T-150, but there's not one of those in every parking lot. The BSA and the red Triumph Spitfire were good to see.
  14. I gather that my PM went through and you were able to contact the person in South Carolina who's studied Peerless quite a bit in the last year. Did you catch that the buyer, still a mystery to me, not only bought the restored 1929 6-61 and the '32 Model "B" Peerless, but that nice '26 6-80 boattail roadster that was on BAT for some time? If alsancle had heard about the one above he may have picked it up quicker than Larry Bird could pick up a missed shot.
  15. Your 1932. Peerless Electric got bought out or something, and the '29 and '32 they had were advertised for sale, and were purchased about a year ago.
