Museum Parts Collection mostly pre-war goodies


Recommended Posts

  We have recently purchased a large collection of antique auto parts from a now defunct auto museum. My intention is to save these parts and make them available to the collectors and restorers that need them. A small list of what we have so far:

  -Dozens of wood spoke wheels from the teens and twenties

  -Dozens of grille shells and grille parts fro the teens thru the forties

  -Trunks, heaters, radios, driving lights and other accessories

  -Dozens of carburetors, many NOS

  -Water pumps, starters, generators, magnetos, many NOS

  -Dozens of fender skirts, many NOS

  -Dozen, maybe hundreds of boxes to go thru.

I will post some photos as I go thru the hoard over the next weeks and months. I can deliver sold parts to Spring Carlisle and Hershey. Shipping of smaller items is not an issue, larger items might be a challenge. Any help identifying items in the photos will be much appreciated. Please be patient, it will take me a while to go through this stuff.

  Planes fly from Oregon to Virginia every day. LOL. Seriously, trimacar is not far from me and is coming over as soon as I get everything out of my trailers. I am in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and if there are any AACA members that would like to come take a look, I am usually available on weekends. I will be posting photos and lists right here as I get items out, cleaned up and identified. I am pkhammer on ebay and some of the smaller, easier to ship items are already being listed there.

pkhammer is a good friend of mine, and you can trust your dealings with him.

 

I'm trying to get to his place before all the goodies are gone!!  

 

I expect an email if you see any Rickenbacker goodies.  😀

I'm guessing this must be from the old Roaring 20's museum.  Anyway, will be watching as you dig thru.  Always interested in early unusual spark plugs of course.

On the first post, 9th photo down, the rimless headlight with the wing on the top, in the lower left corner of the purple plastic bin is a 34 PE Plymouth.  GREAT stash of stuff!!  Hopes this identification helps find good homes for all of this.

What a great pile of parts, I hope you’re close enough to the Tidewater flea in a few weeks and bring some stuff to dig through!

I'm about four hours from the coast. I believe that is a one day affair that only runs 8:00am-2:00pm? It's hard to justify loading a truck/trailer and make an 8 hour round trip for such a short swap meet. Typically I just do Spring Carlisle and Hershey.

  Thanks Scott! Some help identifying some of these parts is what I was hoping for. Thank you!

A lot of aftermarket heaters. Unless they have a car name on the, they are probably added/aftermarket accessories.

Send me a PM about the grille shell.

In today's pictures, second picture from the bottom, grille in center 38 Dodge.  Big grille/nose piece with blue Chrysler emblems -1939, Radio delete plate in 3rd photo from bottom 1951-52 Plymouth, might be the same as Dodge.
