I know there are many hobbyist's on this site that have various Marquis and contacts. I need some assistance in finding Whippet parts. I am in need of a carburetor and distributor for a 29 Whippet. Talked to some Whippet owners and they were of no assistance. Any leads would be appreciated.

Wally, I'm not sure what year this is, but I bought it for the radiator and will be selling the rest of it as soon as I pull what I decide to keep.





I can get better pictures if you need them.

I can't help with parts, but if you haven't done so already, I would also post your request on the AACA forum:

If you're going to Hershey, maybe wear a sign? :-)

Fellow out this way had a running, driving, 100% complete, original '29 Whippet sedan a couple years ago. He couldn't get $2K for it. Dunno where it is now.

The WOKR is fairly active and usually helpful (Willys Overland Knight Registry). A friend in the Nickel Age club had quite a few Overland and a couple Whippet cars including a '29 roadster. I have not seen him in several years, and he was getting up in age then. He was often talking about the WOKR meets he attended.
Is your '29 a six? (I would imagine so.) Four or six could make a big difference to the carburetor, and especially for the distributor.
Good luck!

A friend has a 4cylinder parts car, as well as a nice 26 coach for sale.That being an updraft carburetor,there would be a bunch that would work

That Whippet 4 engine being very similar to WW2 jeep, wonder if that distributor would work? I've cobbled Model A carburetors on engines that came with pot metal ones with good success.

I wish to thank all the hobbyist's that have replied to my question. Also the various suggestions on replacing the parts with Model A substitutions will be very useful.

Wally

I wish to thank all the Hobbyist's that responded to my post. Using Model A parts as substitutions hopefully will bring an end to this project. Just to add the car belong to a very dear friend that passed away a couple of years ago. His widow wants to get the car running and I believe she will sell it.
