Estate Auction Finds

Post by jelenbaas » Mon Apr 22, 2019 6:52 pm

I recently attended an estate auction and came away with a couple interesting items.
Spencer locking and tilting steering wheel for a Model T and a Elgin Six radiator to be used on a future speedster project. The radiator has a 2 inch Vee and seems to be in very good condition.

Good finds and especially the future speedster radiator. To the right guy looking or that particular radiator he would pay top dollar to get it. They don’t show up very often. And especially the radiator emblem.

My first T, a 27 Tudor completely done, came from an estate sale. I stole that car.

At $45 For the steering wheel and $165 For the radiator I felt like I should have been taken away in handcuffs.

James, I would be interested in purchasing your Spencer wheel, if you aren’t going to use it. Tmorsher@icloud.com if you care to discuss. Thanks!
