  1. Looking for the person that is making oval gas tanks and the "dogbone" filler caps for a speedster project of mine. I've heard there was someone in the midwest but don't have contact info. Can anyone help? Thanks!

  2. Finally was able to talk with Tom, owner of Prairie, and he had been a little under the weather. They are going strong and I was impressed with his knowledge of the "art" of porcelain coating. He'll be getting the manifolds I need done.


    Thanks to all that weighed in on this thread.



  3. Does anyone know if Prairie is still in business? I've tried calling the number listed in Hemmings for several weeks only to have to leave a message and never get a call back.


    Looking for a reputable place to have a couple manifolds porcelainized.




  4. Looking for a craftsman/shop that can fabricate a speedster body from the firewall back, including the seat buckets, rear fenders and the oval gas tank. Prefer someone located in the southeast US but will travel to the right person. Previous speedster experience with references a must. This was a large 131" wb car from the 1913 - 1915 era. Thanks, David

  5. Still looking for drive train and body parts for a 1913, 1914, or 1915 short wheel base touring Stevens-Duryea  - particularly need the following: rear seat cushions, robe rail and foot rest for back seat area, tail light and cowl lights (1915), engine fan mounting pedestal, carburetor, gas tank gauge and switches (pressure and on/off), rear luggage trunk, etc.


    Any and all leads considered.



  6. Steve,


    For those who want to enter a car for both AACA and CCCA judging, will there be a joint club banquet afterwards? It doesn't appear to be clear from the information published by each club so far and the cost per person is different for each. Not sure how the awards presentations would work either.




  7. Still looking for drive train and body parts for a 1915 Stevens-Duryea (left hand drive) in particular:


    1. Engine - fan mounting bracket, belly (oil) pan, distributor

    2. Cowl lights and taillights (unique to the 1915 model)

    3. Top bows

    4. Robe and foot rails

    5. Spare tire side mount brackets

    6. Warner Auto-Meter 100mph speedometer, Bosch battery-coil switch, and air regulator (choke lever) for dash

    7. Rear seat cushions


    Also, any literature on the 1915 D-Six model including shop manuals, advertising pieces, etc.


    Leads appreciated!






  8. Looking for the Warner speedometer, Weston ammeter, and a Bosch ignition switch for my 1915 Stevens-Duryea project.


    The speedometer is a 100 mph Warner Auto-Meter with a steel case (brass would be ok too), the Weston ammeter is a -10 to +30 range ammeter, and the ignition switch is a Bosch dual switch - coil & mag (must have a key). Photos are attached of what we're looking for. Any leads would be appreciated!









  9. I have one cowl light for a 1915 Stevens Duryea and want to find a glass lens maker to make a second. It is a clear lens about 5" in diameter (made originally by Corning) and typical of the late brass cars. There is also a green tinted glass sidelight about 2" wide and curved to fit in the side of the brass housing. Does anyone know who's able to reproduce these early glass lens? Thanks!
