I live in Perth, Western Australia and I'm restoring a 1914 Maxwell 25/4. Parts are very difficult to source over here, so I am seeking suppliers in USA. Does anyone have any suggestions for supplies of engine, clutch and gearbox parts?

Thanks,

In my limited experience, there are no established or reliable sources of Maxwell parts. Some collectors have resources they have gathered. Otherwise, it is make it from scratch, find it at a swap meet, or use a parts car.

If someone has better information, I would welcome it.

Other owners can be helpful, and connecting with them using internet resources such as these forums seems to work.

Dont like to add to your woes mate but I have a 25 Maxwell, owned it for 10 or more years now, I do all the swap meets etc. I can confirm that these parts are vey thin on the ground down here and you may just have to resort to later model parts.

Early Chrysler 4s share a lot of componentry with my era and are relatively easy to find bits for, even the 28/29 Plymouths share similar engine/transmission pieces.

Good luck !!

That is quite an old post that you responded to.

Hello,

I have just seen the previous 3 responses to my original post. I am hoping to make contact with Braden to see if he still has the chassis. Thanks very much to Howard Dennis for posting the photographs, which have enabled me to confirm that the engine is a match for mine, although I have the steering column on the wrong side, having been modified for Australian conditions. Here is a recent image of the car.
