FS: Early 20s Cadillac (?) parts

Recommended Posts

A friend has four fenders, a hood, a door, and some side curtains for sale that we thought were Buick parts but we've been told they are not. The closest guess now has them coming from a late 1910s or an early 1920s Cadillac. The fenders look extremely close to the 1918 Cadillac, but the hood looks too wide. Did Cadillac make trucks back then? I have posted several pics that you can look at:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/69buick/harlan.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.geocities.com/69buick/harlan.jpg</A> <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/69buick/harlandoor.JPG" TARGET=_blank>http://www.geocities.com/69buick/harlandoor.JPG</A> <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/69buick/harlanwindow.JPG" TARGET=_blank>http://www.geocities.com/69buick/harlanwindow.JPG</A> <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/69buick/hood2.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.geocities.com/69buick/hood2.jpg</A> <P>If interested drop me an email at 69buick@duluth.com<BR>with an offer.

The doors look very much Cadillac to me. The car I restored had the same hinges and handles. It was a 1917. The doors each had a small number plate about 1/2" x 1" at the bottom edge of the door. these numbers matched the body number. Mine was an F### number. I no longer have the car to reference.<P>Bob McAnlis

Actually, the rest of the parts, hood details, handles, clasps, are all Cadillac. The side curtain window pattern is the same. I have no reference books that show clearly when the 3 to 4" wide gap panel was used in the center of the hood, and that would be the key to ID. It is definitely post model 57 (of 18, 19, and 1920 early).

I just located an unrestored 1923 Cadillac tourer,...but the picture was so awful, and the price was so high (ridiculously!!) that I doubt we can contact the owner for a beneficial comment. When someone starts off at a restored car price for a completely rusty bucket,... there are problems. However, I do think it was the most similar I have seen. I did make an offer on the car,..and when he turns me down,..I will provide him with your e-mail, so you can make a mint on him. He needs these parts, from what I saw,..and MANY more! Mostly,..he needs some sense.<P>RS
