  1. Mark - From the magazine article (below), could you assume it was AACA National? Mahlon Patton was National President that year and Co-chairman of the Tour. I now have his '14 Simplex that he's standing in and we toured in it at last year's Glidden in South Carolina. Unfortunately this is all I have of the 1961 Tour. If you find a tour book, I would be interested in a copy.  David

  2. I have a really nice bare frame that would be the start of a great speedster or restoration project. The original VIN numbers are stamped on the rear cross member and stencil painted on the cross member nearest rear axle. It is the shorter wheelbase - 131" model D-Six originally fitted with a  496 ci 6 cylinder engine and was a shaft drive car.

     

    It is free but you have to pick it up or arrange for shipping. If you are interested, please either call (and leave message) or let me know by PM.

  4. Unfortunately there were no oil pan drain plugs in the lot.

     

    All remaining parts we had were sold as a lot to Jim Aldrich (Raleigh, NC). He can be reached at jcaldrich04@gmail.com

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

     

     

  8. 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.

    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.
