Advise on 1916 Saxon (driveline transmission wanted?)

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a 1916 Saxon 

No engine, Transmission or axles though I have the transmission housing. 

 

I am am starting the wood work as I look for parts. As I found an engine in MN I wanted to ask how likely is it to find the transmission drive shaft etc or does anyone have such spares laying around. 

 

Also as I build the wood parts does anyone have an interest in a set of wood replacement parts for the interior framework? I could make two sets while I’m building mine.

 

Alternately I may sell the whole car if someone else has what’s needed to save this car. image.thumb.jpg.8c9a0f7428217c9fb4e4b2320f814b32.jpg 

 

Thanks

Thanks so much for your reply.

 

I have not done much searching around here as yet.

 

Yes there’s a few years worth of work there lol. I like building something out of nothing.

 

There’s boxes of parts with it that said I have no Idea if the parts are true Saxon parts or not.

I MIGHT need wood frame pieces soon. A friend is SUPPOSED to be redoing mine now but I haven't talked to him lately to see how things are going. I would suggest making two sets.There are more Saxons out there than I realized when I found mine

I think you might be missing the point. I could buy a 100 pt restoration that would definitely save tons of time and prevent me from walking a swap meet with my kids from end to end.  

 

Also feel free to laugh at me while I Hand form a left rear Saxon fender to match right. ( yes it was sitting on the wrong side of the car.) I could probably buy a fender too.

 

Sometimes in a restoration you get to the point when you have a nearly photographic memory of every part of a restoration that you touched puts your heart and soul into a car ( fights off memory loss,  muscle loss  as an added bonus). 

 

Now you share this restoration with your son or daughter or grandchild and they may learn and have a memory never forgotten. Maybe a lesson of life is learned in the process builds character. Per chance as the kid grows they pick cars as a hobby over drugs or video games and god willing they will not spend their time writing comments of little value on blogs diminishing the value add of a communication forum to a group developed specific to supporting your fellow (car nut :)  hobbyists.( yes I creeped on your posts)

 

Hard lessons learned: At 15 years old I restored a Ford Falcon ( 4 door) and the lesson learned from this was simple a Falcon fender costs the same to restore ( with fabricated components) as a numbers match big block muscle car with factory ac and a four speed) 

 

Credit -(Special Thanks to the nameless older fellow with the split window vette and if I can recall the B400 Murray body Model A from NJ)

 

And yes I build low dollar original Model T ford belly buttons for an absurd reason to share old cars with people who appreciate them and save parts from the junk yard that can make a lower income family a nice driver.

 

This all all said maybe I should take your advice a buy something nicer to start with any suggestions on what you think I should buy? 

 

To the rest of the group thanks for your awesome support! Sorry for the errors omissions poor grammar and sentence structure but I’m doing talk to text. And I tried to make the best of all things we can learn from each other!

 

;)
