  1. Thanks Gary - this gets me started! How long did it take to get your wheels? This wheel will be the spare tire on my 1914 Simplex 50 (27" wheels with 37 x 5 Goodrich tires).
  2. Trying to find either a single 100mm Rudge-Whitworth wire wheel or someone that can make one. Don't need the axle hub just the wheel center (or complete wire wheel) to complete a restoration. I had heard there was a shop in New Zealand (Gary Morton?) that had been making them but no longer exists. Any one know where I can find one or get it made?? Thanks!
  3. Al, I have a late 1914 Stevens-Duryea bare frame, left hand drive, and extremely clean. Still has the VIN number stenciled in the rear crossmember. It originally had a 6 cylinder in front. Also have a second Stevens Duryea (same year) that I have been building in to a speedster. All correct factory drive train components but a new speedster body. This is a project i won't finish. Both for sale in North Carolina. Dave
  4. Does anybody have the tour booklet for 1961- I believe it was in the Poconos (PA)? I'm set to return my '14 Simplex to the Glidden tour this year and it was owned/driven by Mahlon Patton in the 1961 Glidden. Leads appreciated! Thanks!
  5. James - I am in the Charlotte area and believe I was a previous owner of your Auburn. I can help you and have sent a PM. David
  6. Nice 1928 Auburn just listed under Cars for Sale. Thanks for looking!
  7. Last June, we lost a good friend and avid old car fan – Clay Thomas. A true southern gentleman, Clay made many friends touring with his wife Mary Ellen in their Marmon and Auburn. The family has expressed a desired to see these cars be passed on to an equally enthusiastic old car lover that will continue to enjoy the driving of such special classics. The Marmon was sold last fall and now only the Auburn remains. It is located in Charlotte, North Carolina. 1928 Auburn 8-115 Phaeton Sedan - For Sale - Reportedly the 1928 New York Automobile Show display model. Purchased by a Mr. and Mrs. Craig at the show and driven home to Indianapolis. Remained in their family until the late 1960’s - Very rare model and the first year for roll up windows on the four-door convertible - Beautiful tricolor paint with gorgeous deep red leather interior - Lycoming 8 cylinder 300 ci engine, 3 speed transmission with overdrive, 4-wheel brakes on a 130” wheel base - Bijur lube system, King-Seely gas gage and dual side mounts - Clay Thomas bought in 1973 and commenced a no expense spared, ground up restoration - AACA Awards include First Junior, Senior, and many Repeat Preservation Awards - AACA National Award – Thomas McKean Touring Award - in 2015 - Recognized as a CCCA Full Classic - A well sorted touring car that has completed many tours over the 45 years owned by the Thomas family - Years of maintenance records, tires replaced in 2018 with new Firestone 7.00 – 18 wide whitewalls. This was a dependable tour car and driven regularly. It is currently being detailed and serviced so it will be ready for the upcoming tour season. It has never been abused but lovingly exercised similar to the Marmon. The family is encouraging reasonable offers in the 90's. For more information, contact Russ Rogers at 704-589-2983 or by email at mbrjr60@twc.com
  8. Thanks Al, that would be most helpful! The tank depth is 18" so most anything between 15" and 17" would work. I've also seen a side mounted Triumph gauge of the same vintage and that would work just as well. David
  9. Looking for a Triumph fuel stick gauge that would mount in the top of a early car gas tank. They came in various lengths and the float was inside the stick tube. The needle and face was in the top of the unit. Thanks! David dpeeler6 (at) gmail (dot) com
  10. REMINDER We'll be taking the Marmon to Hershey! Please stop by and take a close look at it. Still looking for offers in the low 90's. We're in the Red Field near the stadium - Spaces RCF 13 - 16 Hope to see you there! David
