Some of the later postings include car club outings and other vintage car items that I hope will be of interest to people.

The 6 cylinder, overhead valve naturally aspirated engine has 2 valves per cylinder and a volume of 3. Front guards and valance panels fitted. As far as he is concerned, the more people he can get to pay attention to the car and admire it, the better.
For Beulah I copied the type that my friend Dave had on his 1928-25. Everyman's Guide to Motor Efficiency. It took 2 weeks and then he lost the original Dave gave me as a pattern. Not expensive, but lots of fun for the guy who just wants to see what old cars are all about. Let me know if you are interested and I will send pictures.
When it was restored they did it the way it was built. I am short 2 of them so I have a feeling how you made yours. Slender levers for the headlights and ignition offer a neat symmetry, although the original lever for the ignition broke at some point and has been cleverly replaced by a close substitute actual replacements are relatively easy to find on eBay. The engine drives the wheels compliments of a 3 speed manual transmission. Also wondering if this is a wrapped and stitched part, if I should use some webbing or something else inside that would be better at taking stress than leather so that the strap would last longer and would not just snap when the leather wears thru.

Beginning with the letter designations, the Series D had additional numeric designations for the body style, 44, 45, 46, and 47, designating touring car, roadster, sedan, and coupe. The back seat is especially nice with an ancient rubber mat, foot rest, and that grille behind the seat back is an exhaust heater now safely disconnected, thankfully. The acquisition, restoration, improvements and my experiences over the years are covered in as much detail as I can remember.
The steering wheel is wood. And it is what fits in the retainer. We do not perform internal examinations, so we cannot guarantee the condition of unseen internal components such as crankshafts, bearings, gears, and other mechanical equipment. The tires the car has are 5. I usually use my electronic copy that I received from Leif.

Starting with 1925, the series designation changed back to numeric designations, but this time they signified the wheelbase used 120, 121, and 129.
