  1. have no idea what this is worth .It appears to be in very nice condition. I have kept it for the last 10 years thinking I might acquire a Packard in need but that seems to be a remote possibility now. I am in Ontario Canada and prefer not to ship it.
  2. Let me know if you are still looking for a Packard stone guard as I have one available.
  3. I believe Phil Hill had one of these he inherited and after a few close calls added front brakes! I would think that might be a good idea coming from a World Champion formula 1 driver ! It certainly is a beautiful car. I have an amazing letter from Hendee the head of the Indian motorcycle Company addressed to Packard extolling the virtues of and satisfaction with his new 1915 twin six Packard !
  4. Well that engine certainly went to the best possible home! Well done.
  5. I have one of those glass tinted visors. Thats the first time I have seen another one on a car. I think mine came off a Pierce Arrow or Packard. Its available
  6. Interesting.Thanks for the explanation and as you say there are crooks everywhere ! I don't think I would be apprehensive purchasing a collector car from a Montreal Quebec dealer such as John Scotti but I see your point about the worry concerning possible liens. I think a statement from a Quebec notary would be prudent for any purchase. When I lived in Quebec I always had the Provincial Police ( Surete) search registrations and/or serial numbers.They were always courteous and happy to do so. As with buying a collector vehicle anywhere first hand inspection and due diligence are paramount. Trailer and modern car dealers are a different kettle of rotten fish.
  7. Please elaborate ! I lived in Quebec for 25 years and got to know some of the finest collectors and upright citizens there that I have ever met in the hobby.
  8. I bought this a long time ago and am having trouble identifying the vehicle it fits. The spoke pattern as you can see is unusual as it is with a lot of that legendary company's offerings. The spokes seem to be tensioned as the spinner is tightened, something new to me. One chap thought it was from a "Derby" Bentley but I have been unable to verify that.
  9. Andy, Are you referring to Alton in Hampshire? That would be quite a jaunt from Staffodshire. I only ask as I have some Brough friends near Alton. Barry
  10. I have a BH4 that has a tag on it stating it was from an Overland car.Does anyone know if this is correct?
  11. The one offered was made in Chatham Ontario, the home of RM !! They should buy it .LOL
  12. I have a friend looking for a rare side lamp for his Everritt and remember seeing Arnold's ads in Hemmings but maybe that was too long ago ! Maybe someone else can help. Here is an old ad of his and the lamp being sought
  13. If you have a veteran car these are the ticket. One 4000 pound capacity and the other is 8000 pound. The big one is missing one caster but I have a pair of similar that can be modified . Price is $750 US firm for the pair and I will not separate or ship. I can meet you at the Thousand Island bridge Canadian side at the top of Interstate 81 just north of Watertown New York. Bring your passport or Nexus card. For Canuks I will deliver to either Montreal or as far east as Oshawa
