  1. When any true car guys leaves with his trailer, for a few days, his wife knows it won't come home empty..
  2. There was an L29 in Quebec in the 1950's with a slanted windshield. I wish I knew more about it but I have only seen photos.
  3. It would be so cool to have one of these crates.
  4. Ed, When you order the SJN, please pick a dark colour. I would be happy to pick it up at the factory and deliver it to you......free of charge (I'll even pay for the gas).
  5. The little face in the back window belongs to a dear friend who is now in his late 70's
  6. John, I resume that this is J256, early in its life and long before the side mounted spares were added by Pete Warvel in the mid 1960's. Do you have any information on where the photo was taken and when ? thanks, Mike
  7. Ed Is the correct carburetor available ?
  8. Absolutely, those 41 Cadillac grills sold for peanuts
  9. Don, If it ran better before, the kit is likely not correct for your carb. I suggest you call Jon (Carbking on this site) at the Carburetor Shop, give him your carb number and he will provide a kit specifically for your car. Jon only answers the phone on Mondays and Tuesdays.
  10. When I lived in a large metropolitan area finding a capable machine shop willing to do one of and multi operation type work was very difficult. Now I live in a small town with two great machine shops and an experienced, well equipped engine builder close by. There is a huge antique boat customer base in my area, so the machine shops maintain there older equipment and are used to one of type work. It's not inexpensive but I am able to get most things done locally. Hard chrome, porcelain and any type of plating are all hours away with long turn around times.
  11. e There are two of them, both owned by the same collector.
  12. For me, it will depend on access across the US border !
  13. Also check to see that your shift linkage is not interfering with any wiring.
  14. Pete, I'm surprised you don't have 3 in a drawer in your office !
  15. I know of an award-winning Boss 302 that doesn't have connecting rods or pistons inside its priceless numbers-matching block. Can't risk, you know, blowing it up by using it for what it was designed to do. That is so sad !
  16. John, I am enjoying your photos. Keep up the great work, please.
  17. one of 32 LeBaron Speedster
  18. If I knew where it was and knew it was for sale........I would own it
  19. AJ, is this the one Mark Clayton is doing ?
  20. Randy, I think you will find quite the opposite at Auburn. Every ACD car which is "new" attracts quite a bit of attention. A few years ago a club president brought a RWD conversion quite frequently. Ed is right, Auburn is a great place to market the Cord .........then bring the Auburn the next year because you will be hooked.
  21. I would heat all the grease out and submerge them in Evaporust for a few days......the pistons should then press out easily.
  22. My wife has a horse named Auburn and when it leaks it really leaks !
