Cars For Sale

 

1929 CK 4 door sedan: For health reasons I am selling my car, for some unknown reason it is titled as a 1930. Asking $10,000. Contact John Schilliger, 1351 Clark Rd, Urbana, OH 43078. Phone 937-653-6488. E-mail schilliger@ctcn.net. NDC #3820.

1937 S-3 4 door sedan: 35,000 mile rust-free survivor car. Original drivetrain, 6-cylinder, 3-speed overdrive, 6-volt positive ground. The carburetor, starter, generator, distributor, fuel pump, water pump, radiator, and entire brake system all gone through. The car also has a period correct heater with defrost. The factory radio works, as well as the vacuum wipers.  Interior is all original mohair in surprisingly good condition. Window glass is about half original with some de-lamination but overall good condition. Body paint is original except the fenders which were repainted only because they were mostly primer due to worn out paint. There are also thin spots on the roof, hood and trunk but it does still shine. Bumper chrome is still 90% good and the stainless trim is in great shape. Overdrive transmission gets the car up to highway speed easily on Hankook Diamondback radials, the car has a very nice ride, and gets 20mpg at highway speed. Sale will include service manuals, parts catalogs, and period advertising. Also many spare parts including an extra transmission, assorted mechanical and trim parts. Price $25,000., negotiable. More pictures and info. available upon request. Contact Marc Rossi, 2455 Madroncillo St. San Diego, CA 92114. Phone 619-287-4326. E-mail marcrossi@cox.net. NDC #5616.
