1926 Locomobile Photo


Recommended Posts

An intriguing  vehicle from the Adrien Cote'  Collection/Saint-Laurent Museum in Montreal. One of 14 high-end cars for sale there about 2 years ago(also 2 Hudsons, Stanley, Stearns-Knight, Studebaker, Graham, Franklin, Hupmobile, Auburn, Cord, Peerless, Lincoln, REO, & Oakland cars). This one sold to parts & persons unknown.

A Minnesota car collector I know picked up a '22 Hudson and a '27 Peerless V-8 from the same guys. Caption says: "1926 Locomobile Junior Woody Wagon".

This locomobile jr is listed in Hemmings motor news. The car is located in southern California. If anyone car get the vin # and motor # it would be helpful for the locomobile jr archives listings. I tried but no answer.

from what I seen, the chassis is correct. the cowl forward is correct. body and dash incorrect. the dash console should have a cluster in center with gauges inside and to the right have temp gauge. ignition switch to the left.

I bought this car in 2018 from California and shipped it to Ithaca NY.  The "wood" portion of this car was poorly built -think particle board.  I tore it off ,designed and built ash and mahogany  body. Lokks decent runs f ine. I would love to restore the dash board to its original look. Any help/advice/parts would be welcome Kenn 607 592 1911

That is a nice looking later 8 cylinder Locomobile.  I like the proportions for a close coupled sedan and the wire wheels.  I can't quite tell what type wire wheel these wheels are.  Who can help here?  I hope they are not Dayton.

From my search of Buffalo no. 4 wires, I have found that Dodge used Budd wires. I have also seen Hayes wheels on Dodge cars but until you posted I had never heard before of Buffalos being used on Dodge cars. Learn a little every day. Thanks.

Hello John,

My response above refers to a set of Houk not Buffalo wheels being used on my 1922 Dodge Bros touring car.  Hayes and Houk are both pin drive and are very similar wheels.  Have you located the #4 Buffalo wheels, hubs and cap pieces you need?
