Recommended Posts

I am interested in finding out if anyone knows the where abouts of this automobile. My dad owned it from 1553 until 1967. My dad never restored it. He sold it to a man that owned a Winton. The man that bought the car was a pilot for Swick Air. He flew from San Fransico to Tialand. I have in my possession a Horseless Carriage Gazette dated Spring, 1953 Volume 15 Number 1 that has a section devoted the ALCO. I would appreciate hearing from any member that knows what has become of this fine automobile. The vehicle was bacically complete the original engine,flywheel, clutch, transmission rear end were there. the raditor was perfect. The only items missing were head, side and tail lamp. Body was complete,upholestry was in very good condition for being 50+ years old. The hardware for the top was complete, just needed a new canvas top made for it. There is an interesting story on how my dad acquired this car.<P>Thank you, hope to hear from some one soon. <P>Sincerely, Michael J. Zetlmaier

I have a 6-cylinder 1913 Alco and have worked pretty hard for 11 years to find all the Alco's I can. Of the 4-cylinder ones, I know of the following:<P>1910 or 11: green, built up non-authentic body, 4-pass cloverleaf (toy-tonneau type) on a very authentic chassis and running gear. This car has a body built up probably in the 50's. It was owned in the 70's and 80's by Joel Naive who died in 1993 while on a motorcycle rally in Ireland. Present location unknown.<P>1912: 5-passenger touring car. Sitting in storage at a closely guarded location in the southern half of California.<P>1912(poss 1913), 5-passenger touring car, very authentic. In the Payne Collection at Seal Habor Cove, Maine.<P>I have heard reports of another 1910 or 1911 4-cylinder car somewhere out west, but nothing more concrete than that.<P>Alex Joyce ajjoyce@home.com<P><P>------------------<BR>

AACA records show a 1911 Alco 4-cyl winning a First National Award at Tucson in 1988. At that time the car was owned by Holis Davenport, Tucson, AZ. Contact Peter Gariepy, this sites webmaster. He may be able to give you more information.<P>I contacted Peter and he knows this owner and will glad to help you get in contact with him.<p>[This message has been edited by ronbarn (edited 01-19-2000).]
