Re: No Optima 6 volt batteries to be found

Lo and behold I ordered an Optima Red Top 6 volt from Advance autoparts on line and got it today. Date says 8/22 so it does not appear to be an old one lying around for a while.
Back in business.

Any suggestions where to find a 6 volt battery to fit my 1928 6 cyl? My Optima has gone into a deep discharge and will not come back to life. I need a replacement but Optima still says not in stock but 'comming soon'.
Have tried all the ways to get mine back to having a charge but no luck.

1928 steering column to dash bracket

I know I removed my bracket between the steering column and the instrument panel when disassembling the car but for the life of me I cannot find it. It is now considered missing and I now need one to mount the column.
Does anyone out there have an extra one that I can purchase?

Re: 37 115c with data plate of model 1088

Well it doesn't matter if the VN is incorrect, the sale was a SCAM.
The ad on Trovit was fake and the seller and website was trying to take my money for a car that they did not have. I called the dealer that advertised the car also and he said the car was in his showroom in Denver and the real asking price was $91,000. My bank fraud department took a look at my wire transfer and thought it funny that the bank account was a personal one not a corporate one with the name of the brokerage.
They almost got me. They are now being reported to the authorities.

Outstanding!
I checked some details about the car and you are correct. It is a big block Chevy 502.
I guess I will have to remove that marking.
Thanks

Well now I know the data plate is a replacement from some other vehicle. I will have to wait and see what is on the title.
I know the car is a Hot Rod but the classic lines of that year packard appeal to me and it was affordable.

Still working on putting together my 1928 526.

My prospective car has the number 502 inked on the hood side pinstriping line in the arrowhead at the front of the cowl. Does that have any meaning other than to the previous owner?

The car I am purchasing is listed as a 1937 Packard convertable but the data plate shows 1088-5238. Looking that up it should be a coupe. Has someone modified the coupe to a convertable?
The car has been modernized but the body looks to be original. Thoughts?

my window cranks were old rusted seized up parts with a couple of broken springs. I soaked them in a 20% solution of molasses and water for a couple of weeks. Then I sandblasted them, painted and lubricated with white lithium grease. They look new don't they? I have two more not cleaned up with some broken parts if you need something to work with.
