It went to a very nice fellow on Mainland China - I understand very pleased (it was one of those cars that had always been very well cared for too - makes all the difference in the World).  Very Fashionable Springfield too (love a good looking Club Sedan).

Walt, A photo of the Cadillac 341 Series with Hibbard & Darrin torpedo phaeton can be found on page 263 of Cadillac, Standard of the World, The Complete Seventy Year History by Maurice D. Hendry.  I recall reading H & D licensed Gill in England to build the design as well.  The style also was mounted on Stutz chassis.

This is doing it a little different - a DESMO Scottie 

 

By the way, that Packard Boattail parked to the left is AACA Editor West Peterson.

What a ridiculous looking creature that is. Awesome Scotty, though.

 

(We had two when I was growing up, Nigel and Morris.)

Look at that - after the drunken sailor was done in Springfield they must have found a new job in Connersville working for Auburn Automobile Company.

 

I have my Rolls-Royce in America book out on loan - what car is the ID tag from (and for those who do not know it is the Ignition key chain) ?

It’s off a late 1928 P1 that was rebodied in 1935 I to a station wagon. I wonder if it made it past the war?  I haven’t researched the name yet.....been busy. It was marked as a new special order.

Am seriously looking for a SG 23-25 roadster with original body. Would love a Springfield. Might be open

to a P1. Looking for a very nice driver. Will reward a successful lead.  Any ideas?

And I was aware of the Fred Guyton car.

Ok I bought one. So I need advice. 1925 Springfield Silver Ghost. Original Picadilly Roadster. Sitting for 25 years.

Original upholstery and original top. Poor repaint many years ago. Nice body and wood. Cruddy underneath.

Have just restarted, using my fuel source. What do I need to watch for? Who on west coast can help. Am at that

buyers remorse stage, but I will probably get over it. Oh yes, I need correct bumpers, probably the single bar flat ones.

I assumed you joined the RROC?   If not you really have to.  For 60 dollars they will give you a complete history of your car.   Also,  the forum is active and people will respond to your questions.

Why the late bumpers?  Should you be putting the round ones on a Ghost?   If you really want to go the newer route here is one for 500 or best offer.

You can pay Ed whatever you pay for this bumper and you will have a pair.

Actually, not really. Problem  with a Springfield car is there are so few well sorted cars..........and sorting one is very, very difficult.
