In the early 80's I visited Jim in Seattle when I lived in Alaska. He had a great collection of Accessories and is the author of the three books titled "Model T Ford Authentic Accessories". I visited Him again in 1990 and he had sold the collection to someone in southern Calif.
I believe that he told me that the person was a Rabbi & lived in the Hollywood Hills. Sense then the Rabbi has passed and his son inherited it. Is there anyone that might know where it might be today.
I had donated a pair of Snow Bird skies to add to his collection.
Jay must have it.
I was told it's in the Smith collection in Nebraska
Mr. Smith does have a very large collection of Model T accessories. I don't know if it's Mr. Kenealy's collection or not. He even has a chassis that's built entirely of accessories, minus the block and the frame rails. Very amazing collection in general, and I highly recommend visiting. The Model T section alone is worth the price of admission.

Thanks for the information, I'll check with him to find out. When Jim sold the collection
he wanted to make sure that it was available to the public for viewing. He was upset after the sale when the Rabbi put in his personal space and not open to the public.
Mike, I would have loved to ad Jim's accessories to my collection. Currently I have somewhere near 800 Model T accessories of which I have already shown about 515 of them on the Accessory of the day posts over the last several years.
I would also like to see my collection go some place like the Smith museum for the public to see on display.
Here's a link to a 2009 thread showing some of our accessory collection on display in our home.
