Got tipped off on this, made the call and Dad snagged it for me during the week.  Picked her up this morning.  $125

WOW, super rare find in my opinion. I have never seen one for sale in my area. Lotta old Walker Greyhounds in my area, little else. A real prize if it will actually lift and hold a load.
You boys better hold on cause i'm gonna have to stand on it!

NEED A 1/2" BONNEY STREAMLINE COMBINATION AND ANY OVER 13/16" TOO!

So Todreich, when are you going to make headlight lenses?

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

This car is a pile of crap. Noisy, rattly, slow and underpowered and has a reputation for being unreliable. I want one.

Back in the corner of my shop I have one of those, little bit of blue paint on it.   The front wheels flop it is so worn.   I didn't even bid on it,  when the auction was over, auctioneer pointed it out,  asked if I was going to load it?    What?   he had added it to a pile for the same money.  Worked somewhat when I brought it home.  Yours looks WAY better than mine.

So Todreich, when are you going to make headlight lenses?

I'm in the process of getting quotes to have a bunch of them produced.  I did make contact with a company who "used to" sell them; said they had been setting on his shelf for decades, then about 4 years ago everybody wanted them and they disappeared virtually overnight.  Said he sold them all for $4 each!

I figure if I can have 100 or so made fairly cheap (min $250 purchase has been the typical stipulation on quotes I'm getting) then I'll be a source for them for a while and help a bunch of folks out, and maybe make a buck or two a piece on them.
