Indeed, I wish Ross lived closer to me so I could take my car to him

I was extremly lucky in having the original Title.
and had many conversations with the 3rd owner. I am now the 4th. My car was purchaced new buy The Industrial designer Walter Kantack and his wife Lillian.The stock market crash killed the business. This car was kept at the summer home, so never saw snow till the second owner. Lillian kept the car till she went in a nursing home in 1971, 3rd owner bought it in 1976. and I bought "Lilly" in 2002

Got the car out Finally yesterday. Started right up. ( Yeah I primed it. Fuel down the carb.) got on the road to go home and when she got to operating temp (I was doing about 52mph.) She started to hesitate/then surge back and forth. Trying to speed up it would, but didn't like it. On slowing down to 40mph it went back to the purring machine she always has been. I did screw up last fall and stored it with less than a full tank.(3/4). I think if I had water in the gas I would have issues all the time, not only above 40 mph. Maybe a partially clogged fuel Filter? or the fuel pump itself. Any ideas anyone? Brian

My guess would be a Du Pont. if it is it would be a very rare car. only 537 total cars. Expensive too.

I appreciate all the help, But any repairs are beyond me. Adding fluid is a nightmare, And checking fluid is a nightmare. I don't know of anyone in the Detroit area that can help. Didn't drive the car this year either, except in the spring. I don't know what the fluid level is. I know it is low.

My car is a late 51 Model "300", It originally had some kind of "Textured" dash only on the Passenger side starting about a couple inches to the left of the glove compartment to the far right hand side of the car. According to the Info I found, the "textured" dash started in 1952.

I was using an ZDDP additive to the Valvoline 30 wt oil I have been using for my 51 "300", but I cant seem to find the same additive.( They changed the packaging.)( I Think. ) I have had no issues, but I know the car needs an oil change, so in a way I am in the same boat as the original poster of this thread.ie: not sure what way to go. I Like the ZDDP additive, and have had no issues. What ZDDP additive?
