Can someone here provide contact information for the person who reproduced the early 09 door handles, locks, and latchplates? Also wanting the same information for the person who makes the 09 free-standing top landau bars, top sockets and buggy rail parts.
Regards,
Scott

Unless someone started again, nobody is making the buggy rail parts to my knowledge.

John Boorinakis makes the top parts. Look up John's enterprises on the vendors page. He bought the business from the late Ron Brown, Sr., who had also made the door parts. John may know something about that.

Scott,

Are you building another 1909? Or is this for your Towncar?

Many thanks Leon. Do you know whether their version is the early 09? I understand there are appreciable differences between the early and late, but have no idea what these actually are.
Thx,
Scott

You will have to give Tom Rootlieb a call. All I know about the 1909 is they have a buggy rail. There is a old steel farm implement wheel that has the correct oval metal spokes. I was in Minn. last year and saw a set of these wheels. I was driving my car and could not haul them. They were for sale at a low cost.

Scott, Jack Harrison (RIP) made all the door locks for Ray Wells including the early 1909 locks. He left all the patterns and parts to me and I gave everything to Dennis Oley in Redding, CA. Dennis is making very nice locks but not the early 1909 lock. There is just not enough call for them and they are very labor intensive. I have most of the internal parts and the strickers but not the lock housings. They can be made, it's just lots of time. Give me a call if you want more info.

Please let me know if you know of anyone thinking of making the buggy rail again. We bought the last bits and pieces that Rootlieb had and Tom said at that time they were not planning on making anymore. Maybe this changed, I hope so.

Hello Ned:
Consistent information I'm finding about the early 09 buggy rail is that the reproductions that have taken place are not accurate, or are not acceptable quality, or both.
Thx,
Scott

Chris Hill:
Long time no hear...hope all is well at your end. I am assembling a spreadsheet of 2-lever unique items that are either available, or where these will need to be designed and built from scratch. I do not have another 09, and no, the buggy rail is not a Town Car item.
Regards,
Scott

Scott,
The way it was explained to me was it comes in pieces that need to be welded together and there was a lot of fitting work that needs to be done. They did this in order for the owner to fie the rail more accurately to the desired car.

We are looking for one for a 1910 tourabout if anyone has any leads.

Ned,

If you are ever in Indian, you are welcome to stop by and look at my Feb, 1910 Tourabout (just like an 09). It is complete with the original top. cell 317-201-6524. Rod.

Rod,
Thank you for the offer. I will keep that in mind.

This is why if there is ever a part being reproduced that you know you will need, buy it while it is available. Something that comes to mind is two piece timers. How much would anyone be willing to pay for a new one right now? How much would a new brass radiator cost to make if brassworks were to stop making them.

We have the locks made by Dennis Oley, or you can buy them direct.
