We found several major parts of a 1911 Metz 22 in one of our barns. We're looking for help connecting with folks who might be looking for Metz 22 car parts. Any help is greatly appreciated.
The Metz was made in Waltham, Massachusetts. The Waltham museum hosts a Metz show every year, perhaps they would be a good contact:
Also, you could post a classified ad on the Horseless Carriage club website:
I have a 1913 Metz 22. This model was introduced in 1912 (engine serial numbers 15,000-18,301 for that year) and made until 1915 when it was replaced by the model 25.
The best internet sites are the Yahoo Metz Group:
Also, the AACA Metz Forum:
Hello Philip, I have a 1912 Metz 22 and I need some parts for the restoration. I sent you a PM.
Hi Phillp I thougth i sent you a pm Monday morning . Iam not sure you got it. Please let me know. John
I also have a pile of model 22 Metz stuff. Parts of this, bits of that. Missing a lot, but enough there that a car could be restored from the mess. In fact, that is what I have called it for about forty years, the Rusty Mess.
I doubt that I will live long enough to ever get around to restoring it. I have at least four full cars to restore before I can consider seriously working on this one. But I have restored cars in the past that started out worse than the Mess. I would actually like to do it. To that end, I could be interested in any Metz parts provided they were very cheap, and close enough to go get.
I would also seriously consider letting all I have go really cheap to the right offer! I would like to see someone actually restore this mess.
A 1913 Metz Special Roadster could be a really fun little car! Kind of like a 1911 model T open torpedo roadster.
I have always had a soft part in my heart (or my head?) for Metz.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I have recently purchased a 1911 Metz Plan car, this is a two cylinder air cooled model. I have about 95 percent of it and am in need of a steering column and or good pictures of one to complete my restoration. Any help would be appreciated. Phil Eyre Michigan 269-986-928 cell or 269-964-9248
I am trying to restore a 1913 Metz Special that has been in my family for over 70 years. The right front fender is damaged beyond repair and I am looking for a good replacement. Any help in finding a fender would be greatly appreciated. John Simerly, WA. 360-606-5129
