Many Parts! Helping neighbor sell 70 year collection

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!  I'm new to the forum and to pre-war cars, but have owned many post-war cars and trucks, over the past 35 plus years.   I am helping my neighbor in Phoenix thin out his 70+  year collection of pre-war car parts and farm antiques.   I will likely need help identifying many parts when he can't.  The parts are mostly Model T, Model A, 1920's - 30's Buick, 1920's - 30's  Packard, 1920's -30's Graham, 1920's Lasalle and I know there are many other random odd and possibly rare parts. Though we are focusing on the pre-war parts first, he also has restored and owned many 50's - 60's Jaguar, Fiat, Plymouth and Corvair and we may later have some of those parts too.  So far, I have sorted through carburetors and have Identified and tagged 20 different models, such as Schebler, Zenith, Holley and Carter.   Next, I am gathering headlamps, lights, housings, lenses and so on.  This is going to be quite a task, but I am really looking forward to learning more about pre-war cars and hearing all of his stories behind each item.  I plan to post parts for sale here and maybe other similar sites and really hope to avoid Ebay.  Any advice that anyone can give on selling the pieces of this collection  would be greatly appreciated.   Please also inquire with your pre-war parts needs and I will try to respond with answers as soon as I can and plan to post many parts with photos in the near future.  I also set up an email address for this task:  70yearsoftreasures@gmail.com, as it may be easier for me to manage requests by email.   -Joe

 

Here are some of the lights.  Please let me know your interests, advice and comments.

I see a nice pair of Trippe driving lights in the left rear of the photo. Valuable lights!

Welcome

Rear center the pair of head lights may be Nash 1931ish.

There is an assortment of spot lights auto and marine, railroad lamps next to an early Jonson ? outboard.

Separate the lights and take a few more photos to make IDs easier.

I can identify Johnson and Evinrude outboards by model/serial numbers.

Cant see enough if this one to tell if it is either.

Still looking for a set of rear sedan fenders for 1930-31 model A, I am up here in Prescott.

Welcome!    Suggestion if you are not selling these right now and are trying to ID them?  I suggest you move this to the what is it page as you are on the Parts for Sale page and I gather there is already much interest, Including myself but the back and forth will only push the actual ads down the page sooner of people buying and selling.

Just a thought good luck
