  1. Hello, I am new to the community. I own an antique mall and have recently come across 5 hubcaps I'm trying to identify. I know the manufacturer of two, but wondering if anyone here can help me figure out which cars these went to. I attached the pictures to this thread. Thanks for reading and for any help! Cheers, Mox
  2. Hello, Is this a 1927 or 1928 buick? Master Six or what type? 95% sure that is a 1928 New Brunswick license plate. The bumper has 3 sections, which I think is a big key to what year or type it is? Thank you for any help! Photo below:
  3. I know what the 2 corner windows are but the rear and front i cant figure out, help guys i know you all will dig the challenge lol
  4. I was cleaning out my grandfathers building & ran across this? I'm guessing it's an old tail light...but anyone know what it goes to? Here are a couple pics that I hope will help.
  5. folks---i was brought to this forum,from a google search.hope you can help me track down what i have.Bought this at a closed down service center.at first i thought it was an restorable US made model,but all stickers are worn off,and i began to suspect it was a hi-mileage china unit.i weighed it on a scale and took basic specs---52"-56" long;approx 6'-20" lift range,220lbs,and has the 3 position pump release built thru the hollow shaft of handle.there are casted numbers on the handle base(5M); foot lever(5E);the pump itself has (J9),and the rear casters have either (OP29) or (DP29),molded on them. Scanning googled images,It looks like the current models,and specs are close,on several 5 Ton service jacks being marketed under possibly Powerbuilt/American Forge/Ktools/AC Delco/OTC,etc.I cant find any owners manuals/maintainance/parts exploded views,for any of those names on the net. I would appreciate anyone being able to positively ID/spec this jack,;provide me with basic fill/drain/bleed instructions,and steer me towards the paperwork/parts(need 2 return springs at a minimum,and would like to know it theres a rebuild kit?), i seek.thank you for any feedback.
  6. Hello everyone, I'm new to these forums so please bear with me. I'm an archaeologist working in Northern Ontario and I've recently located an old Buick (or at least the engine is a Buick) in a swamp (photos below). Since I'm not knowledgeable with cars, I'm reaching out to this community in hope that I can draw on your knowledge of old Buick engines and cars in order to identify the make/model and year to help us better understand the archaeological heritage site where we're working. Any information (literally ANY information) about the car and the car's history would help us out greatly. A little back story before I get to the specifics about the car: Along a river in Northern Ontario (sorry I can't get more specific, but the nature of our work requires a degree of discretion for the time being), there used to be a large set of rapids spanning nearly 6 miles. As you may or may not know, First Nations people and other folks travelling along rivers could not canoe safely down rapids, thus necessitating portaging around them. The travellers would then pack up all their gear, grab their canoes, and walk down a side trail along the river until they bypassed the rapids. On this particular river, the Hudson's Bay Company had set up a trading post or storehouse where they could keep their goods temporarily and trade them with the native people up and down the river. However, hauling large amounts of gear such as barrels, furs, trade objects, foods, tools, bottles, and whatever else would have been traded would have been very difficult for a 6 mile distance. To make the portaging of the supplies faster and easier, horses would have been used to pull carts along the portage. We located the now-overgrown trail and followed it to the trading post, then down towards a swamp where the goods would have been unloaded from the carts, loaded into canoes, and subsequently paddled down the river towards Hudson's Bay. Here's an example of what I'm talking about (map is not exact): We thought we were dealing only with a horse cart path, but when we got down to the swamp, we found some metal sticking out of the water. We cleared away some vegetation and it turns out we had a car frame! The engine was still sticking out of the water along with some other car parts. There was a corduroy road leading to the spot where the goods would have been loaded into the canoes and brought up down river. This car had been used to haul goods up and down the portage and had gotten stuck in the swamp. Here are some photos: The car is submerged in at least a foot of water. Some rubber tire material still remains next to that metal loop (spare tire?) Notice the car jack that was presumably used to try to get the car out of the swamp. A few metal panels are still submerged or off to the side. Interestingly (to me, at least) there are still some well-preserved wooden parts. I had no idea wood was used in car manufacturing until now. The parts number on the side of the engine. The top part says " 8(?)-8 ", the part number is 37858-9 and it has the Buick logo beneath it. I'm not too certain what this says, but it was found to the front right of the engine. Right here. Perhaps it says "LYDITE"? I'm fairly certain the first three letters are LYD but the next three are difficult to make out. The spark plugs are made by a company called Champion. The plugs say "CHAMPION" and "MADE IN CANADA". And the underside says "6 S" and "MADE IN CANADA". So, what can you tell me about the car? I can tell you that it was used to haul supplies and trade goods along the portage in a time where the area had no roads (and still has nearly non-existent road access). I suspect that the Hudson's Bay Company or whoever was there brought in an old car they could use to transport goods some time in the early 1930s as this is when the nearest roads and nearby hydro dams were built. Either that or there's always the chance that this was brought in on a sled or driven in over the ice during the winter at an earlier date. However, I doubt that the HBC would ship in a new car to do limited grunt work (the car's only job would have been to haul stuff; everywhere else is thick forest for hundreds of kilometres) and they would instead bring an old beater to the site. Also, I can guarantee that there's more preserved stuff just under the water but the water would need to be pumped out. I have more photos and much higher resolution versions of these ones that I can attach if anyone requires them. Feel free to ask questions about the car or about the local history. I'll be checking back occasionally to see the replies. Thanks so much everyone! - ArchaeoDave
  7. I am tasked with clearing out my late father's collection of car parts and need some help identifying the junk from something that might be useful to someone. Any positive or guessed ID's are helpful! I did take multiple pictures of everything if needed - the car chassis do not have a stamped serial number that I can find. Two Model T radiators hanging out (not pictured) - junk or usable? VOLKSWAGEN '72-'74?
  8. Hello all. I found this mirror in a garage I was helping clean out, and I have no idea what car it fits. I was hoping someone in this forum might know. I am not involved with vintage cars, but I have had to search for obscure or hard to find car and motorcycle parts, so I hate to just throw it in the trash. Someone might need it or a part from it. Thanks Dean
  9. anyone know what this piece is from, i was think around 49-50 ford, there are three colors in the center part only two of which i can make out ( blue and white, i assume the other would be red)
  10. Hello all, Calling on the experts, hoping you can help! Have a few old American cars located in Europe and trying to figure out if it's worth importing them! If anyone can ID them 100% please let me know! (Posted all the pictures i have) Need to do research into values and helps to know what they are! ha Thank you in advance for ALL help!!! Regards, Ross
  11. Not much info on this one, other than possible 6-digit casting number 2437(3-8?)(7-1-9?), it's a side shifter, beefy, 14.5 bell housing inside diameter, open driveshaft, and most likely American. Any clues appreciated. Thanks, Stephen Murphy, Chicago
  12. What do these guys fit? I am sure that the chief's head on the green pillow is a pontiac, but I'm not sure of the year. The other, we believe is a cadilac. Thank you in advance!
  13. Hello all, I found this website by chance doing a Google search. I am trying to identify my great grandmother's electric car from a family picture dated 1925 (perhaps earlier). I have no idea how old the car was at the time. My great grandmother, Hester L. Coontz (nee Hanrahan) was born about 1893 and we believe this was taken on 145th Street in Toledo, Ohio. I've just purchased an all electric Nissan LEAF a few weeks ago, so I guess electrics run in my family! I wanted to post an introduction post to the www.mynissanleaf.com forum with the attached pic, but I wanted to be able to identify the make/model/year of the car first. I would be much obliged for any information you could offer! Cheers and Happy New Year, Jamie San Diego, CA
  14. This picture was taken in 1943, but nothing was notated on the back. It is my grandmother with her first car. She is 16, so I know the vehicle is not a new one, however, I cannot seem to be able to identify it. Any help is appreciated!
  15. Here are 3 photos of a radiator cap that I found while walking in the woods of central California. Do any of you know what it's off of?
  16. A set of 4 of these hubcaps was donated to our non-profit to raise funds in a auction we will be having in the spring. I have searched and been unable to find what they belong to. There was a note taped to one of them that said "Ford 1954 hubcaps", but I still can't identify them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  17. If you could ID them that would be great.
  18. IMAGE A: IMAGE B: These photographs were taken in Hewlett, New York (Long Island's south shore) in the early 1900s. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
