Need literature showing details of 1918-20 Briscoe top sockets


Recommended Posts

I have a couple basket case Briscoes without  top sockets and have a big pile of unidentified sockets. Just like to see if I have any in my own stuff that would be correct. Original or clear reproduction paper would be fine. Even pictures from someone that owns one would be great. Thanks.

what door # do you have ?

the 978 is out of the canadian cars for 1918 and the motors do not line up with the usa motors #. canada was shipped a set of motors and used them as the cars got made 

978 shell was a 1917 shell with 1918/1919 motor .so form what i can tell the car i have is a late 1918 car form canada 

if i had the $ i would get the two cars you have .

if you need a photo of a place on my car let me know

Thanks for these photos,they might help enough to pick out some top sockets. Your car has a four piece hood where the three hoods I have are two piece. I'm in the middle of a hefty project and can't look for numbers in the pile of wood I have. None in the bodies and I don't think the doors have any wood either. I'd like to see you get this pile somehow. Maybe I could deliver it close to the border but could you get into Canada with it?Trades?
