Check out those 5 lug demountable wheels...are they factory supplied or an accessory?

Just wondering...

Keith

Firestone demountable accessory wheels.

The 5 lug seem to be very popular on the 1918 chev going by period photo's, maybe standard for that year?

I've got a 1919 490 and it has 5 lug demountables on it. It's an original and is for sale.

Someone mentioned on a recent thread that Jaxon demountable wheels were used on Chevys. They also have 5 lugs, like the ones in the picture.

Some 1918-1919 Chevs were V8s...which model were they? Them were nice cars. I have one locally.

Rick Moore,

Thank you for repenting and selling the Chevy. You are welcomed back into the fold now. Gary

Gary,

Fords and Chevys are like belly buttons .... let's not get to acting
like they are anything special.

Marmons, Locomobiles, and Kissels are vehicles worthy of an
attitude. We bottom dwellers best not get too high falootin', lest we
be righteously put in our place. :-)

Chevys had a lot of things you could get on a Ford only by installing after market items. However I am not a fan of a cone clutch.

John,

The V8 Chevys were the Model's D & D5.

A lot of car manufacturers used a cone clutch not just Chevys. They are certainly fun cars to drive!

Cheers,
Willis

Those '18-'19 Chevy V-8's were quite an innovation. Kettering was playing with the "Copper Cooled" engine about that time but it didn't appear until 1923 and went now where. Ford was lucky these weren't successful. It's always fun to look at Chevrolets from a Ford standpoint.

Richard,

I don't look at it from a Ford standpoint. I am an old car guy plain and simple. I love old old cars, pre-war. I don't care who made them. It is so interesting to see what other companies came up with and did. Especially, the small car companies. It does not matter to me wether they were very successful or not. There was an honest attempt to create something they believed in and that the people had a use for would want. That's what's great about the Old Car Festival! Bringing all this innovation together in one place!

Cheers,
Willis
