  1. Hi Sean,

     

    The Washington County Rural Heritage Museum here in Hagerstown has at least two Dagmar cars on display.  I recently donated a book on the history of the Dagmar automobile to them and I'm sure they have even more information.  They can be contacted through here: https://www.washco-md.net/rural-heritage-museum/exhibits/transportation-methods/

     

    The museum has a nice collection of unusual cars that they have on display including locally made early bicycles. 

     

    Thanks,

  2. I have a total of seven IGK1003 distributor caps and one rotor used on Nash and other makes.  These appear to be mostly NOS with boxes except for one.  I would like $225 per cap and $325 for the cap/rotor or $1500 for the whole lot.

     

    Thanks,

  4. 1932 Nash 1080 Advanced Eight Sedan for sale.  Engine has been completely rebuilt and not yet re-installed in the car.  Paint is presentable.  Interior needs work.  The top has been removed and there are spots in the roof where wood will need to be repaired.  $9K negotiable

  5. The Carburetor Shop sells kits.  I would also contact Randy Fusco to see what he has available.  The Club made new venturis and I believe they're still available.  If yours has the original I would consider replacing it - if it's not cracked and swelled now it will eventually.

  6. We have a '32 Nash 1080 sedan.  It is slowly coming back to life with a freshly rebuilt engine.  I met someone this summer with a nicely restored '32 convertible.  They're out there and there are people interested.  But I do agree that people who embrace the oddball/orphan makes are few and far between.  It takes a lot of research, effort, time, and most importantly patience which seems to be where a lot of people find a least resistive path.

  7. Craig,

     

    Look at master drawing 43164 on the HHFC website.  It has the specs for Series 137 Speedster trunk for the lining in the note section as well as the rest of the trunk.  My '30 Speedster trunk is new and not finished either.  I'd be interested to know what you do with yours.

     

    Thanks,

  8. So there are other drawings referenced from the wiring diagram above showing the wiring sub-assemblies. You should be able to build a complete harness from these. Here are a couple more that I found:

    Hope this helps!

  9. 1933 18B Series 184 Olympic Sedan. I have one identical to this under restoration. They are rare in that not many were made by Franklin - I think the general figure was in the neighborhood of 1500. The B & C models are more rare than the A's. They are based on a REO Flying Cloud S2/S3 body and chassis including the rear axle and transmission. It is a Franklin 6-cylinder engine. This car looks very complete from the pictures.
