1923 Chalmers Roadster Body Type


Recommended Posts

My dad had a 1923 Chalmers Roadster style body that is sitting in his barn. There are spare parts all over as well as the car he was in mid refurbish. 

I am wondering how I can sell this and the parts that go with it. Does anyone have ideas? I may be able to get pictures of the vehicle but the parts are all in the barn and I am not sure of what actually goes with it. Is there anyone who can give me some ideas or help on how I should proceed? So far these are all the pictures I have I need to get out and figure out what parts go with it. 
thanks! 

Chris

It looks to me as if you have a largely untouched car in surprisingly good original condition. It's certainly worth something although almost no cars from the late teens to the mid-20s are considered "hot" properties today. I only say that to disabuse you of any television-related notions of value - you may well not be suffering from that problem. The location of the car is important...and you might want to move this post to the general section. Not as many people read the library sub-forum.

Thanks for the input I appreciate it. It is in pretty good shape and all of the pieces plus are there (spares). I will move this to the general forum to see if anyone else can give me an idea what this is worth. I don't have any pre conseption of the value of this car I just know that I need to get it sold so I can close up my fathers trust. If you can think about any other places I could put this I would appreciate it!
Thanks

Hi Chris,

yes indeed that appears to be a very worthwhile project in remarkably solid condition. If you scroll way down to DOMESTIC MAKES & MODELS, you will see a dedicated Chalmers section. I would suggest posting there in addition to the GENERAL section. Very best to you and your family under these trying circumstances.     -   Carl 

 

P.S. Oh yes, and as one of our most experienced and able members, JV Puleo has suggested, location of the car, please, is of paramount necessity in a case such as yours.

For a car of this period I suspect this is about the best place you could show it. There are other venues out there but my guess is that this forum has the largest and most diverse readership interested in an original car of this period anywhere on the internet. Nearly all of the other venues lean towards later (and usually much later) cars. The single exception would be prewarcar.com but I'd try it here first - which won't cost you anything - before going that route,
