  1. Sorry I didn't get a chance to say Hi to Ed. It was interesting to contrast the subtle differences between the consecutive numbered J's above. Ed's photo above demonstrates that colour is everything.
  2. Part of a vacuum ash tray. The part shown is attached to a ash can by a hose.
  3. It is important to note that Don was the driving force in the creation of the Meadowbrook Concours.
  4. All the cars with white walls look great.
  5. Auburn is correct, the pan is not dented.
  6. The collection was dispersed long ago. Mr Fitterling kept many of his Duesenbergs in the ACD museum, for many years.
  7. I cannot seem to get the 2" lower radiator hose on my Cord tight enough, to stop seeping, with the correct clamps. The fittings on both the water pump and radiator are smooth (not pitted) and painted. I would rather not use stainless gear clamps, if I can avoid to. The hose is a new piece of Gates Green Stripe. I would appreciate any suggestions which would stop the seepage. Thanks
  8. The metal side mount covers might be the most desirable part of the car.
  9. Matt, It's time to get a factory shop manual for you and the car.
  10. I'm with Tom. I drive my 70 Cutlass convert (automatic & air) everywhere in the summer. If it were a 4 speed or didn't have air it would spend more time in the garage.
  11. Joe, A 1158 bulb, which is common in 6 volt systems does not have offset pins but does have two different filaments for brake and running lights, so testing should be done when connecting the pigtails to the harness
  12. I've driven the black cabriolet and while it is worn, it is a great driving, no stories car.
  13. Including a freshly rebuilt CGO4804A generator which has one broken mounting leg, along with other supercharged Cord parts. Located intermittently at CE 33 - 34 or text me at 647-528-5704

  15. Bob, Bernie sold J183 about 5 years ago through RM.
  16. The Rollston convertible coupe Duesenberg has always been one of my favorites. The low raked windshield combined with a long wheel base chassis just looks right to me. It is nice to see it out again, it seems like decades since I saw it last.
  17. Bob, I agree. Bernie Aaron deserves a lot of credit for restoring J214 back to its original form. As you likely know, it was for sale for many years and Bernie was the only one to step forward. There were certainly many other J's available then and many which would have been easier restorations. J214 has been in the Reynolds museum in Alberta since 1993.
  18. I recently installed a Henry Portz water pump kit in a friends Cord and was impressively shocked at the reduction in operating temperature. Henry's kit includes seals, bearings, shaft and impeller (his own design) as well as full machining and assembly instructions. Unfortunately Henry is gone but I believe that his daughter is maintaining his website for now. I wouldn't use anything else and suggest you get a kit or two, if you still can. http://www.portzcordz.com/forsale.shtml
  19. A good Cord water pump casting for $300.00 is a deal. You won't find one at Hershey or Auburn for that price. Like Ed said.....check carefully that it is not cracked.
  20. You will likely hear from Ed Minnie A.K.A. edinmass

  22. We have a mutual friend who likely knows where Fred's files are. I will contact him and let you know.
