Hi Cargirl,

Is this car still available, or did it finally find a new home?

Is it still available?

Cargirl, are you still in touch with the owner? I was when it was advertised but have lost touch with them. I'd really love to come to a deal with them and save the car and get he back on the road.

You have no idea what I went through to get to figure out what the engine was. Big thanks to Phil Parcells and Dave Wyrwas.

The car is a good solid example and now with no-stories.

I have a pretty good idea. I've been following this one for YEARS now (since at least 2012), as well as the more recent inquiries on the various forums, LOL! Dave and Phil are great - no doubt about it.

I'm glad the owner has finally come down to a realistic price. I think he is much more likely to find a serious buyer now, but you guys might need to do some more digging on what other original, rare and expensive parts are missing.
Carburetor - part number pic of the air horn
Distributor - part number pic of the back side of the dist body
Radiator - part number pic along the upper passenger side ~ near the battery
Fan shroud - part number along the middle of the driver side edge
Cooling fan - part number on each fin / blade.

Hmm... Maybe a shot of the exhaust manifolds?

Just throwing these out there for you. I'm sure knowledgeable buyers are going to ask about them.

Don't take this the wrong way but I think at $38,000.00 the car is priced right for what we know so far. In other words "As Is." This guy is 82 years old and it is a one owner car with low mileage. If I get real interest we can look for those numbers but I don't think it will effect the asking price much. It is in the Eliminator registry and it has a Marti Report all of it is available including detailed pictures if someone wants to e-mail me at

Oh I agree! I was mainly just throwing out things you might expect to be asked so you could plan ahead ;-)
