Model T Ford Forum: Classifieds: Looking for horseless carriage parts for my build

I am gathering parts to build a horseless carriage, something like an early Sears motor buggy or early IHC car or truck. I will consider any parts you have, like leaf springs, buggy type wheels, top bows and hardware, control levers and handles, etc. If you have something that you think might work on my build, please let me know.

I'm hoping for something like the vehicle in this pic except I want larger wheels and tires and I want to have fenders. Thanks.

I have a couple of wooden seats that might be of use to you. Iíll take a look at them tomorrow and see what it is that Iíve got. I picked them up in my travels and havenít paid much attention to them since they donít fit in with anything Iíve got in the works. One of the seats is very basic and the other has some iron on it. Let me know if you think they might work for you and weíll go from there.

Cheers,

Ron

Hey Tommy, I have been in the construction (repro's) restoration (original) carriages for 46 years as a business. Started collecting back in 1961 and have owned well over 300 original pieces !!! You asked for parts ?? MAN, I GOT PARTS. In the fall of 2019 we are going to have a estate/business auction. Everything will be sold to the bare walls, but will keep my antique cars and a couple of my nicer guitars. Check out my website, www.liveryone.net an let me know what your looking for. I see you have built a "Horseless Carriage". We just finished a commercial grade horseless carriage that will be shipped near Charlotte NC soon. Powered by 16 deep cell marine batteries, tiller wheel steering. Looks just like a fancy 19th century horse carriage but modernized into the 21st century technology. Wished I could post pictures on here BUT it doesn't work, so send me a PM and I'll email you some. It's a "one of one", no other like it on the planet.

Hi, I have an early 2cly air cooled motor that I was told fit a 1907 ABC highwheeler I'd sell for $750. Or trade for pre 13 t parts.

Sorry Steve, I thought your post was about Rod Letcher's post.
Thanks for checking on the stuff your dad might have had. I'm still looking.

Rod, sorry for the delay. I've been sick for a couple of days and spent very little time on the computer. I want the tires and sent you a PM.

Tommy,
Got the PM, I'll package them up and get a shipping cost. I'll let you know the total then.

Rod

Rod, I really like the looks of your CDO replica. I like both versions. I would love to see some more pics. I might build a similar car first and save the high wheeler build for next time. A CDO replica with my modified twin would scoot along well, wouldn't it? Thanks.

Ron, see my post about my slight change in plans.
Let me know about the shipping.
I'm not in a hurry so lets ship them the cheapest way, please. Probably postal service? The total weight should be 14-15 lbs. Thanks again, Tommy

Tommy my full sized CDO replica has a 13 hp Chonda gas engine. It will do about 25mph. With tiller steering it will scare the crap out of you at that speed. I cut and reshaped S-10 pickup springs, used a differential I built from scratch, and scratch built front axle. I used 19'' steel wheels from Canada and Duro sidecar tires.I have no parts as everything but wheels and engine was fabricated as needed.

Nice work Gary. My feelings would not be hurt if my project ends up looking just like that.
