  1. I totally agree. I have never consigned a vehicle and have it sell like we see on TV. If it where not for a storage problem, I would prefer not to use the auction.
  2. I need to find a new home for my 1959 Chevrolet Apache 3100, Short Bed Fleetline. I need to downsize and this was my last purchase. It was restored when I got it and I have a minimal history from 2006 on. The nice thing is, with the exception of the radial tires, it is just the way it was in 1959, including 265 I6, 4 Speed Transmission. The turquoise and white are real head turners. I have attached a picture. If interested, I have many more pictures from all angles. The truck is located in Simsbury CT. I am asking $25,900 for the truck. I would much rather sell it directly to someone in

  4. Thanks. I am currently in touch with SAOCA and TEAE both who have been very responsive. Nothing definative yet but working on it.
  5. Thanks. I have been there and it just confuses me more. It is listed on the registry list dated Feb 2011 in MI ( No TAC) which the cars documents concur but it was Mr. Miller who dismissed the car as non-factory. I do plan to dive in and get the engine, transmission and differential numbers but am not sure if I can find a source to reference. I also plan to look at the grease points. I know that sounds strange but the Tiger and Alpine differ greatly with the number and locations. I attempted to see if I could get the car authenticated by the Tiger (TAC) but they primarily o
  6. I'm looking at a 1966 Sunbeam Tiger. There seems to be a question on the tags. Both the VIN and JAL tag are present and the VIN corresponds with the information I have been able to find for a Tiger. I have not been able to trace the JAL number (JAL is the Jensen body number assigned to Tigers). I contacted one database source and sent pictures and the response was which the tags were "homemade" and (he) could not "get excited" about the car. He flatly stated it is not a "factory" car. This seemed strange since tags are often lost and can be sourced with the right documentation. The tags look c

  8. I am considering buying a 1947 Indian Chief Roadmaster and hope that you all can help me. The engine and frame numbers match. Is there any registry or such where I can research this particular bike? This is an estate bike so there is not a lot of information. I need to determine if the paint is original or not since this would impact the price. It has not been run is several years but the engine does turn over. It is a battery model. My concern is the carburetor.. I have no idea what if any damage has been caused by ethanol. I understand these are very expensive. Are there rebuild kits? Anythi
  9. They have the original radiator cap and it goes with the car. The repro was used when it was displayed.
  10. I think they understand that some negotiation will be needed. I explained that the "book" price is only a guide. The real price is what someone will pay and the seller agree to.
  11. I have a client that wants to sell her 1929 Cadillac Pheaton (not a Sport). This car is turnkey and ready to compete. It is fully restored and comes with some spare parts. It is in excellent condition. The car is located in Connecticut. If you are interested, please email me and I will put you in direct contact with the owner. If you need any specific pictures, let me know and I will take them. Asking $140,000. No dealers please. The owner wants to sell it to someone who will keep and enjoy it. Larry Boardman
  12. As an experiment, I took the weather stripping off. Major improvment on the driver door, not so much on the passenger but it was not too bad to start with.
  13. I just bought a 1956 T'Bird. Everyone calls it Coral Color but according to the color charts, it is Code K, Fiesta Red, I am having a few problems. 1. The previous owner had a power front disk brake setup installed using the original booster. The booster only goes to the front brake and there is no proportioning valve. When I first start driving it, within a few miles, the front brakes start dragging. Lifting under the pedal releases the pressure. This happens on and off. The pedal has about 1/4" more to return. This also causes the brake lights to stay on. I've adjusted the push rod to a
  14. We finally got a decent day to take the T'Bird out. I just bought this for my wife. I've been trying to get her involved with classic cars for 10 years. I did notice the lower section of each door was not aligned with the body. I thought a simple striker adjust would do but it was not to be. The gaps in front of the door are narrow at the top and wider as it goes down. The bottom gap is straight. Any thoughts? While I do a lot of mechanical and electrical work on my antiques, when it come to paint and other body work, I farm it out. Before going any further, I wanted to see if you had any
