932s

I'm sure this subject has been hashed over plenty, but I would like some input on the steering column brackets I have. I'm positive the lower one in the photo is 1909. My question is the other 4, some have the raised lettering reversed and some are on the opposite side. B indicates late 1911 and up,...

Standard oil tanker

Good morning, I have a very solid standard oil tank I'd like to sell. It still has the lettering showing. I was planning on mounting it on a tt chassis. It's still has the subframe, piping and springs, so all that's needed is the axels and wheels to get it back up and rolling. Asking $900. Or always...

What the heck?

Good morning, I found this interesting pan alteration while searching through the parts pile at Eric Barrett's.

My first thought was very quick oil changes!
Can anyone guess the purpose?

Have a great day!

Re: FS- Early 1913 Engine - Rebuilt

Sure looks like a later block with a #2 welded or patched in at the end of the casting date. Notice the raised portion stops at #1. As Charly pointed out there is no lip at the end of the block above the magneto post.
Still looks like a nice chassis for the price.

This is the third model of this car. In 1901 they made a few proto types, two speed planetary with no reverse! It bolted directly on the rear end. In 1902 they made a couple hundred cars. At that time reverse was an option.. the first two years they used a Dedion Bouton 1cly engine, top speed was 20...

Good morning, I have a 1911 touring that has firewall to windshield brackets that are steel. There is light surface rust, and the firewall is weathered so it looks original. Is this correct?

Lizzy needs a radiator

Hi all, looking for an old radiator to match Lizzy's patina. She was born in 1926 so something around 93 years old will be perfect! (High radiator) Leaking, worn, beat up preferred. I can pick up at Bakersfield.

Thanks for the great info. It's amazing that a set of tires cost more than the car did new. I wonder what Henry would think. I wonder how much a new set of tires cost in 1909? If the value of a 09 / 10 car now is averaging around 30,000, and tires are around $1000. The cost should have been $28.33 p...
