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.

  2. Hi, My father found this when cleaning out his garage and has been asking me to find out what/when it's from. My research lead me to believe that this may be a radiator mounted emblem from 1915-1918, but I haven't found any other emblems with the this extra detail attached on the sides. I was hoping to surprise him with an answer on his birthday this weekend so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  3. Hi all! I am looking for any and all information relating to the Washington car built by the Carter Motor Car Co. in Hyattsville, MD from 1909 - 1912. As far as I am aware, there is only one left in existence, a 1909 Model A1 30hp Touring car. It is this car I am focusing my senior thesis on. I am a senior Historic Automotive Restoration Technology major at McPherson College. Below is an outline of what I have uncovered and what I would still like to find more information on: 1. I plan on establishing the history of the Washington car. I have tracked down the book written about Maryland automobile manufactures and a few articles that appeared in the journals and periodicals of the period. Does anybody out there have further information regarding the make? I read through the other thread on this forum but would like to rehash the question to see what else might be lurking in the shadows. http://forums.aaca.org/f169/washington-car-173618.html Does anybody have any period photographs? I have been checking ebay and shorpy but haven't came up with much. How many Washington's were built? Who were their customers? Any accounts of the Washington factory? What is the exact location of the factory and is the building still there? 2. I am tracking down events Washington cars competed in. I have found evidence of 3 Washington's competing in the 1909 Frank A. Munsey Reliability Run as well as in the 1910 running of this event. Again, period photos are huge as well as records of the cars that were involved, accounts, etc. I am attempting to connect the remaining Washington to this event. Additionally, in 1913 a Women's suffrage motorcade left Hyattsville, MD, the Washington's home. I would be very interested to discover if a Washington was involved in this event. 3. Establish a record of ownership. Most of the following information was found in RM's Catalogue from the cars sale in 2012 and 2004. The Model A1 that I am focusing on was purchased in 1936 by Francis George DuPont and owned until 1980 by the DuPont family. George's father was the creator of the DuPont motor cars. The Washington was first? restored in the 1950s by George. Who owned the car from 1909 to 1936? Are there any records of DuPont with the Washington? Are there any photos from this period? Are there any records of the restoration? It seems the car was then purchased by Robert Sahl in 1980 who toured with the car until having it restored in the early 1990s by, I believe, Dragone restorations. There are accounts of the car under Sahl's ownership in the Horseless Carriage Club's magazine but they are mostly captions to photos. If someone knows of an article that appeared on the car I would love to see it! The index on their web site only seemed to point to the captions that I found and a couple of photos. Any records of the car under Sahl's ownership? Any photos from touring events Sahl entered? Any photos from shows the Washington attended? It was at Connecticut’s Greenwich Concours d’Elegance in 1997. Does anybody have photos from this event? The Washington was offered at the 2004 Amelia Island RM auction. I am unsure if the owner who sold it here was Sahl or someone else. http://www.rmauctions.com/lots/lot.cfm?lot_id=16520 In 2004 it was purchased by John O'Quinn and made its way into Bill Ruger's collection sometime after that. In 2012 it was sold at the St. John's RM auction to its current owner. 1909 Washington 30HP Five-Passenger Touring | St. John's 2012 | RM AUCTIONS Any help filling in the gaps would be fantastic! 4. Any other relevant photos, documents, or information! Best Regards, Casey Maxon
  4. I am thinking of restoring one of two pre-war Buicks. The first possibility is a 1931 model 96. The second is a 1935 model 46C. The body of the '31 is in decent shape (no rust through) but would need repainting/rechroming and a new interior. It has been sitting for 40+ years in a garage (not climate controlled) and the head was removed from the engine and stored in the trunk. The '35 is in pieces but I'm told it is pretty much complete. Again, the body is in decent shape (stored in a non-climate-controlled garage for 30+ years) but the running gear/engine have been sitting outside for decades. In both cases, I would guess the cylinders/pistons/heads are very corroded and would need extensive work. What would you advise for cars like these? Is it possible to bore out and reline the cylinders? Or should I try to find replacement engines (original or more modern replacements)? Thanks for the advice.
  5. was told is 1913 which I believe would make it pre-production running and complete except for windscreen four extra engines belongs to friend's mother. located in chico, ca working on pictures and value trying to see how much interest there is in a thing like this...
  6. Does anyone know how to find out if a 1941 Buick staff car painted in Army scheme was in fact used in the Army? Thank you
  7. I would appreciate any assitance anyone can offer helping to locate a Rolls Royce Silver Ghost 1914 or earlier in most any condition, though prefer perhaps high #2. Please contact me on my cell at 803-370-6354 or by email at TheMotorClub21@yahoo.com Many thanks,
