Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Very true Al, I was a cowboy many years ago, but traded it in for 4 years in the U.S. Navy Seabees as a mechanic. Had great time. Retired from Pendleton Fire as assistant chief/ fire marshal in ‘04. Great job! And yes, I’m involved with the Pendleton round up. I probably know your cousins.

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning boys, Ok Al, I'll see if I have any pix of when I rebuilt it. I don't think I do, dang it! I had Jim Barrett of Camas Washington help me out over the phone, and we lumbered through it. He also helped me restore one of the coil boxes. Jim is an outstanding guy and knows the old electrical stu...

1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, Al of Alsfarm suggested I start a new thread on my restoration project, a 1910 Model 38 Overland Roadster. I bought the car about 3 years ago from a gentleman in Loma Linda. He had restored the engine and drive train and drove it around his place, and then it sat until I bought it. I hav...

Re: Modern Replacement Material for Bakelite

Howdy boys, fairly new to the brass cars. I have been working on Model A's for about 30 years, but decided I needed a brass car. I now have two Overlands, 1910 Model 38 Roadster and a 1911 Model 49 Touring. Both need a bunch of work, however, I'm lucky in that the 38 has been rebuilt mechanically. I...

Howdy boys,

I just confirmed what I thought about "Anthony". Beware, he's bad.

Scammer!

Howdy boys, I have been in contact with a person in Baltimore, supposedly, who answered an ad I place a week or so ago, about Remy magneto wires. He stated he had a mag, and the wires. $300 for everything. Sounded somewhat reasonable, so I asked him to send some pictures. I was a little suspicious, ...

Need help removing new wood spokes so I can powder coat whee

Howdy Boys, I acquired an early Overland last year, and I would like to remove the new spokes that are on the car, so I can get the wheels, along with all of the other undercarriage parts, powder coated. The spokes have been treated with something, not sure what, and will have to be painted Blue, as...
