  1. 1921 Hudson Super Six Speedster Phaeton. Very attractive close-coupled Fisher body with dual rear spares. Thorough engine rebuild $6K+ by Goyette Restoration of Bennington, VT. Goes like a train. Older repaint and new Haartz cloth top. Believed originally used as a San Francisco police car prior to acquisition by 20th Century Fox Studios. Subsequently acquired by Harrah's then to noted Hudson collector Bill Nichols of Orinda, CA. It is the only known Hudson of this era with air shocks. A Locomobile Sportif for a fraction of the price! $31,500 OBO. Located in Connecticut. Contact eric@pixacar.com
  2. What's the best source within the AACA or Buick Club for information related to Buick race cars such as were run at Indy and other tracks back when they used two-place cars, essentially, pre-1935? I am looking for an old Buick track car to buy, 6 or 8 cylinder, and would like to have a resource for what was raced in that period. Were there actual factory made race cars, did teams/builders like Shafer only build their own cars from production parts, new frame rails? Is there a register tracing Buick race cars of this era? Any especially good books to own on the topic? Thanks, Motormark
  3. So, here's the motivating "legend": I’ve imagined that it’s 1947-50. The war is over and we won. The scrapyards are filling up with 1930′s cars that were stretched to last through the rationing days, as returning veterans and families buy up any new car that Detroit has to offer. Being too young to have been in service (but having worked for peanuts at Uncle Bob’s Esso station while the older guys were away), I’m a bit short of cash, so that new-car option is out of reach. However, the old, rusted-out ’32 Buick that Aunt Millie drove is now mine for the taking, and I bet I can jazz it up a bit, maybe make it a little like that snazzy MG-T cousin Will brought back from England. Maybe I can find some fenders and bits to replace that boxy sedan body it has now… Yeah, that’s it: I know how to weld a bit, and I can do a little hammer-forming where needed. Let’s take off the body, and have at it. We’ll be the hit of the drive-in; Sue will look the peaches in the passenger seat; and maybe I can earn a few sawbucks in the Saturday open races at the fairgrounds. Here's the first, sketch, then a how-to, with pieces parts from the "junk yard": The first step was to 'build' a body out of foam and duct tape to be sure it would fit and look right: Not too bad (shown here overlaid with the first sketch). The twin head fairings are siamesed front fenders from a 38 caddy! The pontoon fenders are L & R rears from a 37/38 chevy sedan (well actually 4 such sedans) - though I tried at first to use MG-A fenders (too small, too new). The chassis is all restored (I kept the mechanical brakes and other running gear), but the engine now has four SU HS-2 carburettors on a custom stainless intake & exhaust manifold. Here's Uncle Sam testing out the finished chassis: . Here's what it should look like when it's all done: Here's what it looks like so far (most all the body work is nearing completion on another '32 frame: steel over wood construction, '33 grille shell, cut down '35 hood & cowl, cowl extended, '35 doors cut down & reversed): Like all projects: much longer and much more costly than planned, but it's getting closer.... I think the fenders may just have to wait - I want to get this rascal on the ROAD! jc
  4. When I attempt to research the '12 Hudson speedsters I come up with several cars from 1911 and a few thoughts on cars into 1913 and 14. Is there a serial number range that a true 1912 Mile-a-Minute must fall into? Where is that number found on the car? Is the plated equipment necessarily brass or nickel? Tire and wheel specifications? Other facts please that you would add to this knowledge base...... Thank you.
  5. 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
  6. Please see the photos at Flickr: radioFlyer55's Photostream This is a 55 Speedster that has not run in a long time, it was soda blasted several years ago but has not progressed beyond that. I have most of the parts, what I know to be missing is a foglight, trunk latch and the 'Speedster' logo on one side is broken and reads 'Speeds'. Floorboards and rocker panels are pretty rusted out. Is it restorable or is it a parts car? I don't know, but if you are interested call me, come and see it, make me an offer, I am a motivated seller. I have the title, boxes of parts, a manual. Car is located in Morristown, NJ, call me at 973 539 8768 or email peter.helck@gmail.com Thanks
  7. A fellow on the HAMB found this photo after his grandfather passed. It's his granfather's brother Thor in the drivers seat. Thor took off shortly after this photo was taken and was never seen again. The photo was taken in Petaluma Ca. about 1919 from the plate. The photo was colorized at some time by one of his great aunts.Please help identify. Thanks.
  8. This is a 1981 Replica with 4,681 original miles. Price is $39,500. Delivery is available.
  9. I am now deep into a winter project, building a vintage speedster on a '32-50 chassis, to be done by June for running the Great Race (this year - a lap of the Great Lakes). Being part engineer, part artist, and wholly looney; I have decided to make it a coachbuilt special: boat-tail with twin head fairings and pontoon fairings. Why not? I offer this blog (with pix) on the project, for those interested: The Great Race John Corey And I welcome all good advice and relevant spare parts contributions! Thanks to those who have already lent their support (you know who you are)! jc
  10. All, I am starting to post up my Kissel Gold Bug Speedster and other Kissel vehicle pictures on a new web site which my future son-in-law set up for me in November of 2011. Please check out www.kisselsandclassiccars.com for pictures of three Kissel cars, restorations, the historic Kissel Gold Bug Speedster Gathering in 2010, and other interesting matters. This site is a work in process as i am just learning how to do this. Ron Hausmann P.E.
  11. Wow, you guys are helpful. As I reported in my last thread my engine appeared to be overheating. I received incredibly good feedback and tried to adhere to all of it. I took off the water pump and used the resulting port to flush out the engine. Quite a bit of rust and gunk came out. I flushed the radiator in reverse and then put a garden hose with a narrowed tip into the water pump port and flushed it some more. Two weeks ago I got a 180 degree temperature and overflowed within an hour. Now the temperature gauge shows 160 degrees, increasing to 170 degrees when sitting at idle. I used a Micro Temp laser gauge to measure temperature in the radiator and obtained the following results in degrees F, going from top to bottom in four rows, 186, 172, 184 169, 168, 172 164, 163, 166 159, 166, 167 Could anyone tell me if these temperatures in a honeycomb radiator represent reasonable temperatures. I was running for ten miles at a top speed of 45mph. Ambient temperature was about 65 degrees. The engine coolant was water with water wetter. The engine did not appear to overheat and ran quite smoothly. Thoughts. Thanks again for all of your help. Steve:D
  12. Hello folks. I am new to this forum as I have just purchased my first Stutz. Actually I am an author of Vanderbilt books and have been looking for a Vanderbilt car when I came upon a 1926AA speedster on Ebay. Now I am confronted by the need to learn all I can, not about Cornelius Vanderbilt III, the original owner, but about the auto that I feel so pleased to own. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Steve
  13. Hope you enjoy! Please feel to ask me any questions, I'll do my best to answer them.
  14. I have a 1927 Stutz that I will sell. Long wheelbase. My car is not complete, but has a lot of parts not shown in the photos. It had been bodied as a camper car, however now I have only the original bodywork from the front bumper back to the cowl plus the rear inner fenders and running boards. Also headlights , 6 wheels, side mounts, transmission, drive line, brakes, tools, and a lot more. The motor runs fine and the chassis has been striped and painted, fresh tires, fenders and hood were dipped and e-coated, ( striped and primed )It was being restored as a speedster, until my fathers death. Located in Colorado. Please contact me by email paco_in_colo@yahoo.com I can send better pics to you by email. or phone my cell, Fred 719-510-4868 thanks Fred Baxter
