  1. I live in the California central coast and I recently met a man who is restoring a few cars and is looking for some help with a horseless carriage with a tiller for steering. I am not sure of the year of manufacture (suspect it is 1890's), we are still looking for information as there are no names anywhere on the vehicle. The upholstery was redone by a prior owner in what appears to be Naugahyde. The front, and all fenders are also Naugahyde around a metal frame. The tiller is center mounted and the lever on the right side pulls on a leather strap around the outside of a metal 'brake drum" mounted in the center of the rear axle. How to start the engine is still to be determined. It looks like it might use a rope pull around the pulley on the clutch (TBD) visible in the picture below and in the picture of the clutch. Here is what I know after briefly looking at the vehicle. The engine is an air cooled, single cylinder, laying horizontal under the front seat. It is stamped EUREKA. I would really like any information on this engine as I will have to rebuild it. I have not had a chance to really examine it but I think it is a 2 stroke. The initial questions are, what voltage is the ignition system, what type of distributor (it can be moved by the driver to advance/retard the spark (I think), are there any drawings/manuals/info for the engine and carburetor? Then there is the question of the clutch. This appears to be centrifugal. Pulling on the lever will bring the inside 'shoe' in contact with the outside drum. I will likely have to machine a lot of replacement parts for this "car" so I will probably be coming back to this forum with more questions as the restoration proceeds. This vehicle has as much wood as metal. Even the frame has wood members with metal reinforcement so I need to proceed carefully, as it is our intention to make this drive-able (if you could see how poorly the steering worked you would understand my concern at that prospect). And then there is always the wheels. Wood spoke with metal rim covered by a rubber tire. The front wheels are samller diameter than the rear and the rubber appears to be fastened on in different manner. Is the any information on the wheels bearings? I appreciate any information you can provide. Thank you.
  2. My wife, Anne and I live in south Atlanta about five miles north of the Atlanta Airport. We love vintage Cadillacs of the 1950s. We live in a warehouse we converted into a home and have a large garage. We are new to collecting, but have a few vintage Cadillacs and just got a 1958 Cadillac Eureka Flower Car. This car has been shown at some AACA meets and we are looking for more information about it. Here are some pictures.
