"Would make a good rod"
Why would you even suggest that?

Well Jim I now see what you're all about. Bob actually messaged me saying it was a New Years joke to suggest turning it into a hotrod hoping for a reaction like mine. He said he does not like hotrods at all.
Hey Jim, have you ever heard of a thing called www.Uship.com??? It's a website designed specifically for what you do. mtfca.com is for people who have a passion for automobile history and realize they are only caretakers of these great machines hoping that the next generation won't give in to a quick buck to a hotrodder. It's not for a self promoting shipper constantly looking for some free advertising.
Sorry Bob to bring your post down this road. I'm sure this will get plenty of backlash from Jim and his followers but it will fall on deaf eyes to me, I'm done with this post. Have a great new year Jim and be careful out there, you're hauling precious cargo

Play nice now!
I tried taking my wallet out, but no matter how many times I looked at it, there was no way I can buy it. I probably would if I could. I have had a '27 Paige for many years, but it is nowhere near that nice. My dad bought it a long time ago to be the great family project, but he was not good at following through with such things. So it wound up buried in the back of the garage and not done. I have researched the Paige automobiles, and talked with several owners of the cars. They are above average cars for their era, and deserve a better place in automotive history than they are generally given. One fellow that owns a Paige 6-66 as well as a few Pierce Arrows has told me he likes the Paige as a tour car even better than the Pierces.

Bob P, I do hope that you find a good home for the car! For your sake as well as the car's.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

You're absolutely correct Steve.

Bob,

Is the Paige body all steel or is it built on a wood frame?

Thanks,

Ted


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Wayne Sheldon, Grass Valley, CA on Sunday, January 01, 2017 - 08:54 pm:

Like most cars of that era, Paige used a wood frame body.
However, I am not Bob.

Hi Ted, There is some wood in the body and top and is all in excellent shape. No sagging in the doors. The original top is in very good shape. It is probably the nicest unrestored Paige anywhere. It is good enough to use as it is, Thanks, Bob.

Yes the Car has original 3 tone paint. Light green, dark green and black with black fenders. And yes I can store it until spring.

Are parts available for the Paige or are they very hard to find like the old 29 Nash I once owned?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Royce in Dallas TX on Tuesday, January 03, 2017 - 02:55 pm:

In 1926 Paige built 30,000 cars. There is a great website here:
http://www.wcroberts.org/Paige_History/1926_Paige.html

I was at Bob's place and saw this car last year. It is a good car. Parts are going to be tough to find like any orphan, just like your former Nash.

The engine is a common Continental 6 cyl used by a lot of companies. Easy for parts. The rest of the mechanical parts,I do not know if they are of common type or made by Paige. The car was made in Detroit. Body parts might be tough to come by but it does not need any now. The car is a great survivor. The Paige has 4 wheel hydraulic brakes. They lose brake fluid. That is about the only thing it needs. I guess it all depends how much you want to drive it. There is another 1926 Paige sedan advertised on the internet for $80,000 Firm. Thanks, Bob.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Wayne Sheldon, Grass Valley, CA on Tuesday, January 03, 2017 - 04:26 pm:

The brakes used by Paige were the early version of Lockheed hydraulic brake system. Several other cars used them, most notably, Chrysler. Paige was an assembled car, as were MOST non Ford/GM cars. Parts are usually not a major problem. The original owner of my Paige stopped driving the car in 1947 because he was a lousy mechanic and adjusted the clutch horribly, resulting in tearing up the transmission. Forced shifting ruined a couple gears. I located and borrowed a vintage interchange guide, and made a list of several cars (and even a tractor) that had used the same basic transmission (a Warner Gear Co T68A-1). One model Of Auburn was on the list, along with a few really rare low production cars. I eventually got a transmission salvaged from a Jordan which provided all the parts needed to make my Paige whole again.
I also have a couple distributors and other parts for spares for my car, should I ever get it road worthy again. A good solid original car like Bob P's Paige shouldn't be much of a problem to maintain.
It is a beautiful car! I hope a good caretaker gets it.
One thing though. Those early brakes are a bit tricky, and do require some regular maintenance. A buyer may want to contact me, and I can give a few words of advice. Everyone that I have talked to, once they got the hang of them, has said the brakes work great!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I wanted to chime in and say that I bought a 1928 Model A from Bob in 2016 and it was a very pleasant transaction and the car was in my opinion a great deal. A nice original interior early 1928 that had received an exterior repaint a time or two, that runs great. I was able to have the car picked up by a commercial transporter at Bob's place in MN and it showed up in Phoenix about 3 weeks later in perfect condition for a transport fee of about $1,000. There are 3 commercial transporters that are willing to haul out of MN based on my investigation. Thanks again Bob.

That's a great car for the money. A car can only be original one time and this is a wonderful survivor. Bob would be wise to hold on to it. Original cars are the hottest trend in the hobby right now and it will continue to rise in value.
