Purchased this set up from Layden Butler,great guy to deal with.Russ Furstnow did a check over and gave it his seal of approval another great guy.Yes Russ I know I said that I was only using the speedo and keeping the patina HOWEVER as they say happy wife happy life and I kinda like when my wife interferes
This ought to be right side up.
I've owned and toured a 1 cylinder Cadillac for some years and covered lots and lots of miles, without a speedo.
At 15 mph the steering wheel shook, at 20mph, the rear fenders rattled, and at 25mph the front fenders shook and rattled to let me know that was fast enough. I did not need a mechanical device to tell me how fast I was going. On my Cadillac is came as standard equipment
Your 60 mph Jones is a bit optimistic, in my opinion.
That's a 50 mph Jones and besides -- have you ever seen a 30 mph Jones?
By the way, neat-o car, Peter!
Nice to see the Cadillac. The striping detail on the hood door is a terrific detail I have not noticed before. Cadillacs are pretty wonderful.
Very nice setup Peter. I enjoy putting some of the extras on my cars when I come across them. I recently got my repaired 14 T Stewart speedo back from Russ. He did a great job there too. I found a brass, rim wind, dash mount clock at Bakersfield last year that now is on my 14. A local guy tuned it up and it keeps good time for 4 days before I rewind it!
At 30 MPH your teeth rattled…..
Talking speedometers, I have a bunch of speedometer repair stuff with a Stewart Master speedometer. Any repair guys out there need it? PK
Well it wasn't to do with the speed but we don't use a GPS So if I think I am doing 20mph but it might be only 15 and I have driven for 15 mins is that turn on the left the one at 4 1/2 miles after the last point in the tour guide? And as it is hidden I squeal to a halt and turn. After missing a turn and ending up in a busy down town we decided there was a safer way. It was the odometer we wanted more than the speedo
Pretty wonderful is your painting of that "Barn Cad" Rich !
I doubt I will ever have to use the dash lamp,but
it does now operate.
I actually have a smaller 30 mph Jones that I intended to put on my 1905 Cadillac model m. Never got around to it then sold the car.
It was the Model T that made the Cadillac the car it is today. When Henry Leland started making Cadillacs (after renaming The Henry Ford Company) in 1902, he had a nice one cylinder engine. In 1908, Cadillac was still making and selling one cylinder cars. Late in 1908 Ford introduced the four cylinder Model T. Now, what a choice, a big four cylinder Ford or a puny little one cylinder Cadillac! By 1922 Cadillac had gone way up scale to get away from the Model T market, and they've been doing well.
