  1. Thanks for the replies. I was also referred to Brian Joseph (Classic & Exotic) and, while his website shows a clip that mounts to a head stud on the engine, somehow it doesn't look like I'd imagined. I have a call into them for clarification.


    I actually have never seen the clip I'm looking for, but have been told by several that they could make one if they had something to go by. Anyone have an original for a pattern??


    Dave Mitchell - could you describe the clip and maybe include a photo of the clip as well as how it's mounted on the engine?


    Thanks again!

  2. We're putting the finishing touches on a '37 Twelve engine compartment and need to know the routing and how the armoured ignition cable was attached to the spark plug wire tube. It appears there are 2 small holes underneath the tube that may have held a hidden clip. If so, is there a source for the clips? Merritt doesn't have them.


    Any help would be much appreciated!




  3. I have reduced the price to $ 105,000 and would entertain a reasonable offer. We had it at Hershey and it attracted a lot of attention - probably one of the most photographed cars there!


    This is a special Auburn and needs to go to someone that will appreciate how nice and solid the car really is and yet enjoy driving it. It is an excellent candidate for the new CCCA Passport Program.  Odometer shows 47,XXX and everything about the car makes us believe this to be the original miles.






  4. 1931 Auburn 8-98A Deluxe Phaeton Sedan

    • Purchased from Jim Miller (Ontario) in 2010. Mr. Miller was known for his outstanding collection of original cars, many of which were auctioned at Hershey in 2013
    • ACD Certified (A-507) with all original body, engine, and VIN tags
    • Known ownership history back to early 1960’s and featured in Automobile Quarterly, Spring, 1967 (copy included)
    • Original owner’s manual and copies of factory Service Manuals and Parts Lists


    This striking Auburn has never been totally restored. Cosmetically refreshed over the years, it appears to wear only its second coat of paint dating back to the early 1960’s and has its second interior and third convertible top from factory new. In fact, the body has never been off the frame as evidenced by how solid the doors close. The mileage showing is believed to be the original miles and the Auburn man radiator ornament is the original too!


    Since purchasing the Auburn, we have enjoyed touring in it and it is sorted and ready to go. With a complete tune up, complete new wiring harness, brakes adjusted, fresh tires, and radiator flushed, it runs and drives as good as it looks. With the addition of a new low ratio ring & pinion gears (inside the original rear housing), a hidden electric fuel pump (for back up), and seat belts for safety, it is ready for the enjoyment of worry free touring. The new rear gears were made by Phil Bray and the original gears will go with the car.


    It has a new leather interior matching the original, new correct convertible top, new runningboard mat and trim, and new stainless steel exhaust system.


    Price reduced to $105,000 - reasonable offers considered.

  5. Need help trying to complete the radiator to coolant overflow tank connection and had the following questions:

    1. The copper line between the two appears to be 7/16" OD. I can't seem to find that size of copper line anywhere - does anyone know where I can find it? Will a 3/8" or 1/2" line work?

    2. Are there any drawings or diagrams that show the routing of the line and are there are any fittings along the line?

    Any help would be most appreciated!


  6. Thanks for all of the advice! I've done quite a bit of homework, but you really never can know as much as you should. I have found that there are a lot of great folks that have 101's (I am a member of the 101 Association and AMCA) that will share what they know about the bike from repairs to part sources.

    Still looking for that special bike - leads appreciated!

  7. Still looking for the following:

    1. Rear bumper brackets for a trunk rack option (should fit a Twelve or Super Eight club sedan, coupe, coupe roadster, conv victoria)

    2. Engine side pans with the louvers

    3. 1937 Twelve Data Book

    Any leads would be most appreciated!




  8. I have had the running board trim reproduced in German silver just as the originals were for the Model 34 (1916 to 1924). There are five pieces to a set, each 96" in length, enough to do both running boards on one car. They have not been polished, nor are the holes drilled or ends mitered, so you have the flexibility of a custom fit to your car.

    I only have 3 sets left and don't plan to make any more. Price is $300 per set plus shipping in an 8'+ piece of PVC pipe.

    If you are interested, please contact:

    Thank you.

  9. post-53271-143142957592_thumb.jpgTrying to identify this front bumper - name of mfg, place made, original pricing, etc. It is an "aftermarket" adjustable bumper that has been added as this Marmon didn't come with a bumper in 1920. I've only seen one other like it on a Packard of the same vintage. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, David
  10. Carl - I was having trouble getting the photos to attach to the PM and am not sure it went out. If you haven't received it, then please send another with your email address and I can reply that way. Thanks, David

  12. Carl,

    I have a pair of wind wings which I have been told were off a Marmon. I'm not sure of the year. PM me and I will send photos.
