  1. 1937 LaSalle Convertible Roadster Project for sale or trade. Chrome done! Tons of new parts to build a wicked ride! If you are looking for a big project and to build an amazing rare late 30’s convertible coupe, please read on. This rare two-seater GM convertible body features both a rumble seat and trunk. (GM’s last year for a rumble seat.) The body and frame is from a 1938 Pontiac cabriolet that uses the same convertible body as LaSalle and Cadillac. The BAD news: Due to the poor and rusted out condition of the Pontiac fenders and floors, we decided to save the roadster body and build a 1937 LaSalle by using excellent parts from a solid California LaSalle donor car. We started replacing the floors and rockers, as well as the firewall, cowl and rear fender wells. This project still needs a lot of fabrication work, including squaring up the doors, replacing rusty trunk/rumble floorboards, convertible top work, and mechanical fabrication. This project includes a Helix Mustang II IFS Coil Over Stock 5x4.75 Power LHD Rack with sway bar and four link rear end suspension kit. The GOOD news: This project also includes an excellent and complete set of rust and dent free LaSalle body parts (everything you need) including the hood, hood sides, headlight buckets, front and rear fenders, running boards, doors, dash, cowl, firewall, floors and rockers. Best of all we have over $10K in very nice re-chromed trim parts (still wrapped in newspaper from being re-chromed in the 80’s) bumpers, bumper guards headlight rims, a perfect grill, hood ornament, hood trim, window trim, running board trim, all inside and outside handles and excursion plates for all doors, trunk and the rumble seat. The chrome is amazing, and would cost a fortune to find and re-plate in today's market. The package includes the following parts: Super rare 1937 Original GM roadster body/frame and convertible top mechanism and hardware (Paid $10k for car) 1937 LaSalle Donner car body parts. (Paid $12k) $10k in re-chromed trim parts. (still wrapped in newspaper from being re-chromed in the 80’s) (New in boxes) Glide Roadster and Rumble Seat. (Paid $1200) (New in box) Carbon fiber heated seat kit. (New in boxes) Helix universal 60.5 Front Steer Track Mustang II IFS Coil Over Stock 5x4.75 Power LHD Rack with Sway bar and four link rear end suspension kit, power window and door kits, new latches, remote control, trunk and rumble poppers $2300. (New in box) Vintage air heater and defroster. $250 All original dash components. Knobs, trim, speedometer, clock, gauges, radio control, map light, and lighter. (Gauges restored with new chrome by John Wolf for $1600) 1993 Chevy blazer 350 small block engine with AC pump and TBI and rebuilt 700R4 transmission. Over $40k invested. Take her home for $25,000 or trade for a 1927-1950 turnkey restored car. Ideally 1930-34. Love Nash, DeSoto, Chrysler as well as odd balls and unique orphan cars.Get out your welding torch and build yourself one of twenty in existence! When finished they sell for $100K+. The car is located in Oakland, CA and sold as is. The car does not steer or roll. No title. For more info, please contact John and include your email address.

  4. Having left Abington in MG red, the TC presented here now wears a distinctive Kelly Green with light brown top, and brown interior. An older restoration, the paint is not without blemishs however one has to be close to notice any imperfections. At first glance, you may not notice the horizontal radiator shutters done in a very subtle dark maroon, complimenting the body color. Grill has no dents and combined with bright work is in very nice condition, as are the polished “knock offs”, while the painted wire wheels makes tedious polishing a non-worry. The right headlight suffers one dent, a common occurrence while closing the bonnet on T series cars. The foldable windscreen is in very nice condition, as is the brooklands aeroscreen for those days when the mood takes you to fold down the windscreen, to reach your optimal speed. Under the bonnet, the engine bay is very tidy with a polished valve cover sitting on top of a nicely re-painted block, with all rubber fittings appearing to be in good condition. Toolboxes built into the body come equipped with jack and hammer necessary to remove “knock off” should one suffer a flat aside the road. Doors close nicely as they should with no door sag. Door checks are intact, as we see many lesser quality cars with them missing or broken. Upon entering the vehicle, one notices the machine turned doorsills before settling into the comfortable cockpit. The brown upholstery shows small signs of wear, only matching the exterior of the car. The wood grain dashboard could stand a re-veneering, however we would probably leave it alone. All switches as well as choke and starter pulls are marked, alleviating any confusion while operating. Grey faced gauges play nicely, matching the steering column, all correct for the TC model. The top is in nice condition, sporting a light patina which blends well with a restoration of this age. Largely untouched cosmetically, upon arriving on the east coast, this TC has underwent a great deal of sorting all of which is documented in a personal logs, in addition to the file full of parts receipts. This TC runs and idles very nicely, however digging into the receipts files, it is noted the current tires and tubes were purchased in January of 2003; thus we would encourage new rubber all round for increased safety and comfort. Combined with a thorough going through of the braking system, this TC will be ready to venture any great distance. Underneath the car is rust free, with chassis in excellent condition – we noted there is not pitting or other signs of corrosion in the past. Depending ones level of meticulousness, this TC could stand a lot from a carpet kit, and brake lever boot. We can see it being just fine as is for fun motoring or seasonal touring. Topped off with a period correct owners manual and brooklands steering wheel, vintage turn indicators in the rear add a level safety for driving in modern traffic, while the fronts are discreetly incorporated into your parking lights. This TC also comes equipped with a Marchal driving light in very nice condition, accompanied by a vintage New England MG T Series register badge, which helps complete the pre-war sports car look. Complete with all weather gear and tonneau, the side curtains are stored neatly in their compartment built into the rear of the body. While it is not concour fresh, it will be gladly welcomed at any local show. This TC has just the right amount of patina to be enjoyed as a weekend driver, classic to run around town in, or for others may be a perfect candidate for a light cosmetic restoration. It is an example that one can be proud of, yet not afraid to drive. An ideal tour vehicle and would be welcomed by any number of clubs, including the Vintage Sports Car Club of America.

  13. [TABLE] <tbody>[TR] [TD] Offered for Sale by the California Automobile Museum$25,000This very nice 1930 Ford Model A Roadster is a great solid vehicle. It looks to have been well maintained and is a fantastic driver.This Roadster presents nicely in its Gray paint. The pin striping is in great shape and adds a nice touch to the Ford. The passenger door does have a small spot near the handle that has some damage that was repaired as well as on the door frame (pictured). The rest of the vehicle seems to be very solid and rust free. The black paint on the fenders does have a nice shine to it but does have some various light scratches by the hood. The chrome bumpers are in great shape and have a nice shine to them. The grill shell is in good shape as well as the rock guard. The stainless cowl trim and lights are in nice condition. The front light bar is a nice subtle addition to the front of the Roadster. The glass and the glass frame are in good shape and all parts for the windshield appear to be present. The top is in great shape and does not have any rips or tears in the material. The top folds down nicely for that classic roadster look. The boot for the top is in decent shape but needs to be cleaned up a bit. The addition of the trunk rack is nice. 16 inch wire wheels have been added to this vehicle with 6.00-16 Firestone wide whitewalls. The tires have 8/32nds of tread on them and do not have any cracking in them. The doors do not have excessive play in them and they close as they should. The Brown leather seat is in great shape and does not have any rips or tears. The door panels and kick panels are also in great condition and the kick panels have a handy storage pocket. The rumble seat is brown vinyl and is in great shape as well. The carpet in the Ford is in nice condition and does not have any excess wear. The steering wheel is in great shape as is the dash and gauge cluster. This Ford Roadster runs and drives great. The four cylinder engine fires right up and idles nicely. The engine revs up nice and smooth. When the engine was rebuilt the odometer was also put back to 0 so it has less than 2000 miles on rebuild. The electrical system has been converted to 12 volt and helps to get this Model A started quickly. The 3 speed transmission shifts as it should and does not have any slop between the gears and the clutch has a good feel to it. The brakes look to be adjusted correctly and they stop the vehicle as they should. The lights on this Ford work as they should as does the horn.

  15. Our 1929 Series 65 Roadster came to us as "in good running condition". That was a joke! We now have the car up and running after rebuilding the radiator, carburetor, replacing wiring, correcting bad wiring, cleaning gas tank, putting in spark plugs ... etc etc! Now that the car is running, we can fine tune items. The car has wood spokes. Owners manual says that the tubes were 5.50 x 18 . We are facing two challenges .. how to get the flat tube off of the split rim. How do we unfasten the rim? Seems to have a fasterner in place. Second, the tires say Goodyear 6.00-18 6 ply. Can't find this in any searches of vintages tires. And can't figure out what size tubes would fit in these?

  22. I found this snapshot some years ago in the Boston area. On the back it says "Here is my anvil car that I told you about." Is this a Bugatti? Please help with make, model and year. Thanks
  23. Hi folks, I'm new to this forum and as you can see from the title I have for sale, an original metal & wood luggage trunk, marked, "Steelwood", Watts-Moorehouse, Jackson, Mich. on the chrome latches. This is a recent barn find I picked up locally here in Virginia and appears to be in great original condition. It looks to have the original black paint, it has a straight back & front with a slanted lid and the nominal dimensions are 40" long x 13" wide x 19-1/2" tall. The chrome latches are original and contains the only markings on the trunk, however I do not have the locking key, they are in working condition. This is a heavy trunk and I would think shipping on it would be pricey, however it is available for local pickup, if anyone is interested, I am located in Williamsburg, Virginia - 23188. I have attempted to post pictures of the trunk, but am having a difficult time with the posting, so if you want to shoot me an email: va_longeye1948@hotmail.com, I can reply to you with the pictures. I only have a vague idea of the value of this trunk, but as with all things, condition is everything. I would say this trunk is in good to very good condition. I will not be checking this post or forum very often, so the best way to contact me is by email, va_longeye1948@hotmail.com. Thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon. Ron
  24. Hey guys I've been reading through the forums since I stumbled across the site and have always found my answer until now, I need your help. I am trying to piece together an early dodge roadster and while I was scavenging through the not so local junk yard(I drove 2 hours one way) I came across these. Don't get mad that I had these torched off the frame because there wasn't much left. The only remains of this car were these leafs, the front section of the frame just past the cowl to the cross member with a partial serial number on it and the motor. The cowl and motor sitting on what was left of the frame were from a model A. I'm 95% positive it came off of a DB frame unless there is another company back then that had an identical frame. Part of the serial number was ground off so I couldn't read it but I'm guessing this is off of a very early touring, roadster or ??? around 1916, 1917 maybe. I have scoured the web trying to find info on these odd shocks but have not been able to come up with anything but just plain leaf springs with shackle mounts, so I turn to the pros. Any help would be appreciated. It looks like there is supposed to be a coil spring in the center opening from on side to the other but it's broke off. If anyone knows anything about them like what exactly did they come off of, did this come standard or aftermarket, how they work, are they functional or better without, length of the coil, etc. I would love to hear your input.
  25. Hi all, This is my first post, so I'll introduce myself. My name is Joe and I work for PaulFraserCollectibles.com, which provides a news service on collectibles of all sorts. One of the elements we right about most is classic cars, so I would like to share a few of my articles on here in order to build our profile and also to receive feedback from the classic car collecting community: http://www.paulfrasercollectibles.com/News/Gus-Grissom%27s-Corvette-Roadster-rockets-to-$86,000-at-Scottsdale/12947.page Here is a good one from today, with the results of a 1967 Corvette Roadster formerly owned by astronaut Gus Grissom. I always wonder whether I am including the kind of technical detail that you might expect to find in a general article, or whether I should include more? Thanks for any readers/responses
