  1. I am new here and I was wondering if anyone is interested in having original cellular radiators repaired? I am retiring from my radiator business because of I have Multiple Sclerosis, but I still know how to do it. I have been at my shop since 1974 and I specialized in restorations of antiques. I know how to repair, rod, and straighten pretty much any radiator. I'm not as prolific on the 'honeycomb' type, but the cellular type is what I was raised on. I own the shop that my grandfather and father started in 1942. It has been open for over 70 years. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Peerless is the rarest in the famous “3 P’s” Packard, Pierce-Arrow and Peerless of the late 20”s –early 30’s. Peerless was manufactured from 1900-1931 in Cleveland Ohio. Peerless did not go out of business with the looming Great Depression, instead the Board of Directors chose to stop manufacturing cars, and changed the manufacturing plant from building cars to brewing beer as an American franchise for Carling Black Label Beer. With the recent repeal of Prohibition, it was considered a wise business decision at the time. The Peerless motorcars sold in 1932 were actually inventory manufactured in 1931. The only true production car of 1932 was the one V16 aluminum bodied Peerless now on display in Crawford Aviation and Auto Museum, Ohio. In earlier years of the Peerless history, famed Barney Oldfield set world records for speed and endurance in the Peerless “Green Dragon”. asking $39,700 for more photos http://www.oldwheel.com/sales.html Brando Pistorius (813)917-9205 Tampa, Florida USA www.OldWheel.com
  4. Did you hear about this found ? There is an auction to sell those cars in January. Known as the Baillon collection, this treasure was assembled during the 1950s by Roger Baillon, an entrepreneur who ran a transport company in the French countryside. At the time Baillon was a known as a car enthusiast, he had built a roadster for the Motor Show (Paris) during the 50's. He always dreamed about a museum to expose pre-war automobiles. Unfortunately, in the 1970's he suffered a financial problems and was forced to sell some cars and since that time, the collection stayed in Poitiers (French). source.
  5. Hello all! Alina, my very understanding wife and I are beginning to get this "ole" Peerless sedan running. In our preparations, we are reviewing all documents we have for the car and thought we'd share some of that information with anyone who may be interested and/or who may also need such info for THEIR Peerless. I am sure there are MANY people here who also have one of these cars (sic). :-) So anyway, here is a link to a folder I've created for images of only the illustrations of the 1927 Peerless Instruction manual: http://forums.aaca.org/members/truckmen/albums/1927-peerless-six-80-instruction-manual/
  6. What is the best way to find out the value for this vehicle? I believe it's a 1908. What suggestions are there for selling it? I am new to this site and searching for help!

  9. My dad had this car for many years and supposedly its a mercury from the 1940, but when I google it its not the same car. Maybe one of you guys can identify my dads car. Maybe it was a home made car. Some of the cars body parts like the front bumper have been custom made. Here I attach some pictures: Hope you guys can identify this car because I sure cant =D

Always Driven Regularly and Garaged since Day 1. 1969 Lincoln Mark lll - 64,000 miles - 100% Original Nada Value Guide Retail Price : $18,610 to $29,920 Sincere Offers and Inquiries are Welcome
  11. 1970 Chevrolet Caprice $4,500 Two-door hardtop, 98,700 original miles, automatic, 400 small block engine, power steering, power brakes, climate control air-conditioning and a redone interior. This car has been garage kept. It looks good and also runs well. There is some modest rust above the wheel wells, as shown in the pictures, but any in-person view of this issue will soothe any deep concerns. I've owned this great car for nearly 30 years and want to sell it because I'm downsizing. The price I've listed was determined through use of multiple classic car price guides/rating systems and through the value of what I've put into this vehicle over time. Any inquiries regarding trade-ins, or any offers to help me sell my car, or requests to trade my car for some other type of property, are not desired. I've listed my car for sale on this site because I want to sell it myself to another private party who will appreciate my classic car. Any requests that involve shipping my car to any location within the United States are appreciated. But, those requests should be made with the name of the shipping company that you have used, or plan to use, in this regard and should explain your experience with an out-of-state title transfer. Those two points are key for someone who wants to buy my car. Location: Reading, Pennsylvania, United States Joe - seanboru68@yahoo.com - 610-750-1943

The top three in price and status where called the three P’s: Packard, Pierce Arrow and Peerless. Peerless Motor Cars (Cleveland, Ohio 1900-1931) was the first company to adopt what would become the standard of automobile design, a front mounted engine driving the rear wheels through a solid drive shaft. Barney Oldfield shattered world speed records with the Peerless “Green Dragon” Many collectors believe the Peerless motorcars to be some of the finest automobiles built in the USA in the 1920’s renowned for their high performance and stylish luxury. However, Peerless is the rarest and hardest to find of the “three P’s” as it ceased production in 1932. In 1933, ownership and management of Peerless organized the Carling Brewing Co. USA, just after Congress repealed Prohibition, and began production of the famous Carling Black Label Beer in the old Peerless factory. Other Peerless “Firsts” - Peerless was the first company to successfully use a flyball governor to maintain speeds. - They set a 1,000-mile endurance record and the fastest time ever in the Mt. Washington hill climb in New Hampshire. - Peerless was the first to use of aluminum in their side-entrance tonneau along with being the first closed formal body in American production. - Peerless was one of the first companies to use electric lighting. They used a Gray & Davis system as early as 1910 and then upgrading in 1913 to a single voltage Gray & Davis system which now included an electric starter.

  14. My grandfather was an avid collector of antiques and automobile memorabilia. He died several years ago, and I recently discovered three big boxes of hood ornaments in my parents basement. I went through them the other night and pulled out 5 or 6 of the more interesting ones. He made wooden bases for some of the ones in the best shape. I recognize most of them, but one is a complete mystery to me. It is a huge, heavy metal eagle (osprey? hawk?) that he has labeled "1919 Coey Flyer". I can find next to nothing online about the Coey automobile company or the cars they produced. I don't see any referenced past 1917 at all. Can anyone tell me what I've got here? It seems to be in very good shape if it is indeed almost 100 years old, and it looks awesome, but I'd love to know more about it. I have attached a few pictures (sorry, I don't know why they are upside down). [ATTACH=CONFIG]236293[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]236294[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]236295[/ATTACH] Thanks, Ross
  15. I know modern pistons in reciprocating engines are non-circular and non-cylindrical when at low temperatures. Does that stand true for pistons in the 20's and 30's? Or are they circular? Would an antique motor benefit from modern style pistons? Thanks in advance for the replies.
  16. Hi I am trying to value this for a friend, and I am unable to find any record of it, does anyone here have any information? It is patent 138773, other patds pending, Speedmaster Oakland CA. A tire changer where the cast iron handle levers up and down and beads can be broken off rims...this one is repaired with a small piece of round tubing halfway across the bottom crossmember, but otherwise is still very serviceable and presentable. Thanks in advance.....bill
  17. I'm hoping to identify a recent find, and I think you all might be just the experts I need. I was metal detecting at a friend's house that dates back to the late 1790's and found what looked like a coin about 10 inches down in the front yard. It turns out to be a coin-like piece with the image of a driver on one side and a very old car on the other. The disk is about 1.25 inches in diameter. I could not make out any text or traces of text, not even with a magnifying glass. On close inspection, the top appears to have two wide-set nubs as if there had been a loop at one time. It's the lower of a three medallion watch fob that dates back to the early 1900's. Can anyone help ID the date? manufacture? tire/wing logo?
  18. I have a 1929 Chevy AC that I bought as a project car. Life happened and the project didn't Anyway, time to let go. So here are the basic details. Car is located in Plymouth MA. I never got a title on it. I have the bill of Sale and some paperwork from the previous owner so getting a title should not be an issue. Pros: It's original with no modifications. It did run but I haven't started it in a year. Mechanically it should be sound. Mileage is low according to the odometer 37K but I wouldn't place any bets that it is true or not. 2 Door Coupe, 6 Cylinder. Cons: It's original with no modifications Probably needs a new battery although I did disconnect it. All fabric on the interior and roof needs to be restored, new rubber around windows, new tires, chrome restored, body painted, wood needs to be replaced on the door jams and roof etc. History: I have had it for about 6 years. The guy I bought it off in Hanson, MA had it about 30 years plus if memory serves. I'll be talking with him this week to jog my memory on the rest of the history. I would prefer not to sell it to someone who is going to chop it up and put flames on the doors Email me at snoopy456 @ me.com Thanks for looking
  19. Year: 1913 Make: International Harvester (IHC) Model: High-wheel Truck Price: Best Offer (Serious offers only, please) Description: This AACA 1988 National First Place Winner has been restored to the original working condition Location: Ocean City, NJ Please contact Karson Langenfelder (karson.langenfelder@gmail.com)
  20. Even though I am only 17, I have always wanted to build a car like the Hudson of the grapes of wrath, or the Olds of the beverly hillbillies, or any other car/truck of the sort. Now that I am getting closer to the age where it is possable, I was wondering If anybody has plans, or tips/tricks, photos, referances, links to websites... ANYTHING, that would help. I want to do it to a car, not as common or stereotypical as the model T or A ford ( great cars though). I was thinking of somthing that would stand out a little. I am not going to do it to a rare and valuble olds, but somthing like a Hudson, Chevrolet, or maby even a Buick or Dodge. Again, any help is appreciated.
  21. I have some original parts from a 1935 chevy 5 window coupe that we did a street rod project on that I am wanting to sell, but I have no idea what they are worth. Also have some 1974 Firebird H/O 455 ram air parts I have: original front and rear bumper with guards re-chromed with mounts 4 red spoke wheels with tires and original hub caps original heater and radiator, both in good shape for their age. 4 snowflake (gold) wheels 455 heads with valves and springs a/c compressor does anyone know what these would be worth or where i could go to find out so i can sell them to someone who needs them for their project. Thanks for any advice or help.:confused:
  22. Hello! Hope I'm posting this in the right place; I was hoping to get some assistance identifying these emblems. We were thinking they're antique car or truck hood ornaments but we aren't sure. They were found in a barn in St. Martins, Wisconsin. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
  23. I bought a lot of antique automobilia items this week and among them I found these small pieces of paper (almost the size of a postcard) made of various materials that say C.F. Allen Patent on them. They are for various patents. A Doctors Automobile, another four wheel auto, a water wheel, and another item I am not sure about. C.F. Allen seems to be known for his railroad work and work with Pullman as their chief engineer but these are some of his other works, probably from the 1850's-90's. Can't find these images on the patent sight although I may with more time, perhaps they are unpublished patent images? Sorry, I keep rotating the image and it keeps flipping it upside down, if you save it you should be able to view it better. Any Ideas?
  24. Hello, I came across this steering wheel in a storage auction last month. It says Lincoln Twelve on it and that's all I can really narrow it down to. Is it off a Zephyr?? Was wondering what kind of car it came off of if not. I have only seen 1 other for sale and the add didn't have any more details than what I have, just that it sold for a pretty penny.. I have no use for it, as I do not restore automobiles but have great respect for those who put in the time and $ to bring them back to life. my email is runninitback@yahoo.com if anyone can help or is interested in it. Thanks! For some reason, I am not able to post my pictures...says I'm missing a security token?? anyways, if you leave me your email I will send them to you from my phone if that's ok?? Thanks again!!
