If you happen to frequent this Locomobile forum area and plan to attend Hershey, please consider posting what you see or find here, Locomobile related, so those at Hershey might be able to network and help out other Locomobile owners who can not attend.

I will be selling a very solid set of 4 late series Locomobile 48 wood wheels.  These wheels still have most of the original paint on them.  I also have the factory original rear Firestone rims and rings.  I have a lead on a pair of correct Firestone rims for the front.  This is your chance to replace those weak wheels you may have on your old original Locomobile with absolute factory original pieces or to use on that future project you are saving parts for.  Pictures will be posted later.

Purchased a few Stutz parts from the late Stephen P. Dean collection and included in the parts are some, what I believe to be, Locomobile parts. Steve did own a model 48 Locomobile which I believe these parts fit. Please let me know if you can identify and can use.

First pictures are of 6 valve caps. Look to have been re chromed. 12 tpi and all threads look good. Stamped with part number  (?) - 10677.

Next pictures are of a Bosh ignition switch. Not sure if the three part go together or not but were in the same box.

Thanks

Ken

Dear Ken,

I like to comment on the valve caps which you have shown. The numbers "10377" are not the spare part number but the engine number. Unfortunately they have been ground a lot for re-chroming, otherwise you would see that there is also a one-digit-number stamped on the opposite side, which refers to the cylinder number to which this specific valve cap belongs to. Here are two examples: Engine number 13590, valve cap for cylinder number 5. Engine number 9824, valve cap for cylinder number 4.

The most interesting thing is: Your valve caps are obviously from a Locomobile 38 which in now in Great Britain and belongs to a friend of mine. This engine is number 10377. He uses his Locomobile for hill climbs and such events. He sais his car came from a museum in the USA, but he has no idea about the details. He wants to learn more about his cars history, and he liks to purchase the valve caps from you. How can he contact you? Best regards Frank

Hello Frank

Thank you very much for the information. I never thought about 10377 being the engine number but that makes perfect sense as I know that Pierce Arrow also used the car number on most of the running gear during the early years of production.

Have sent you a PM.

I have suggested, in the past, about a project to reproduce my desk top Vanderbilt Trophy radiator ornament.  This version can be correctly modified to be correct to mount on an actual radiator cap of your Locomobile.  Now is your opportunity to be a part of this project and procure a Vanderbilt Trophy ornament to display in your office as a conversation piece of for modification and installation on your Locomobile. PM me and we can discuss your interest.

I am near the position that I can determine the cost per each Vanderbilt Radiator ornament.  They will be available in either the style to mount to a radiator cap or slightly taller to be a desk top ornament. This picture shown above is a taller desk top version and is 4" tall.  The radiator ornament is 3" tall.  If you have an interest in one of these Locomobile curios, drop me a PM soon as I have been told they could be available shortly after the start of the new year.  Yes, they will come, via the lost wax method to maintain the trophy details and cast in Silicon Bronze.  This alloy is strong and can be polished or takes plating extremely well, Nickel, Silver or Gold.  The final finish will be up to you.

The reproduction Vanderbilt trophy ornament is inching closer to a reality.  The detail quality will be greatly enhanced more like the original cups.  Drop a note if you have an interest.
