I agree, it's a 1939 and a Six based on the style of the bumper and bumper guard.

I have a nice one that I will give away for the shipping costs. I had it mounted on a garage wall as a display piece. PM me if interested for more info.

Thanks for the link. Like it or not, it looks like a well executed modification. If the Clipper was the answer, what was the question? I like to attend these auctions as they are a great car show with a wide variety of vehicles. I'm not there to bid.

Does anyone know anything about this Clipper. It came and went quickly and not much of a description except the stock looking body had been placed and a much later chassis. It was stock looking and an attractive car.

Before Packards, I had an English Raleigh with an S-A hub. Quite a nice bicycle.

Looks very good room around the water pump


The Clipper did not have power steering. I didn't do any parallel parking. The non-boosted steering worked well. Agree, dish washing liquid is a good lubricant for rubber. Also, Howard's offset screw driver is a good way to get under the lip of the hose and get it to go over the pump.

Maybe some trimming of the hose is needed?

Hi WauhopM,

I am presuming your are referencing an electric pump as an auxiliary to your engine diaphragm pump? Your NAPA store sells generic 6 volt electric pumps and a 'medium priced' unit should do the trick. In as much as electric fuel pumps push better than they pull, it should be mounted as near the fuel tank as is reasonably possible, using a good, heavy grade of wire, and an under-dash toggle allows it to be activated as required. Chris


I am not sure that the stories about electric fuel pumps working better by pushing than by pulling are true. I believe the reason for the practice of locating electric pumps as close to the tank as possible is to pressurize as much of the fuel line as possible to avoid vapor lock. Vapor lock occurs mainly in the non-pressurized part of the fuel system; therefore, the more of the system that is under pressure the less chance of vapor locking. I have seen electric pumps mounted in the engine compartment to either augment of replace the mechanical pumps and they worked fine.

Also, electric pumps are sometimes added for another purpose - to prime the system before starting a long-stored vehicle.

My 115C was fitted with a Stromberg carburetor (don't know the number) which never gave a bit of trouble all the time I owned it. The new owner overhauled it and got a kit from Daytona.
