wanted: your cars

“... it’s about the interesting escapades and journeys that you experienced with your cars back when you were young.” With publishing deadlines several months ahead in planning, we will soon begin working on the November and December issues of Hemmings Classic Car. I mention this because those two particular issues — HCC #182 and #183 — have Special Section themes that you may want to be a part of, or perhaps you know a fellow car person who would. Issue #182 will profile Barn Finds. As its name implies, Barn Finds will profile cars that have been found stashed in barns and rescued by their current owners. In order to have your barn find featured in this issue, we will need photographs showing the car inside the barn, in all its disheveled…

lost & found

Falco THE GILMORE CAR MUSEUM RECENTLY POSTED THIS IMAGE TO ITS FACEBOOK PAGE looking for clues as to what the vehicle depicted might be, but despite a number of guesses, nobody seems to know for sure the story here. With the tag positioned in front of the car (“S-1811-13”), it’s unmistakably a Ford styling exercise of some sort, and one respondent even identified the location just outside Ford’s styling studio. And of course, it’s hard not to see the elements of early 1960s fullsize Fords and Falcons in the mix here. One intriguing suggestion pointed to Edsel’s planned Falcon-sized car that later became the Comet (and, later, the Mercury Comet). Then again, somebody else suggested it could merely be a Photoshop fantasy. Jagerrari TOM JACOBSMEYER RECENTLY EMAILED US A FEW PHOTOS OF A CAR HE…

CAR 1916 Owen Magnetic Tourer AUCTIONEER Bonhams LOCATION Tupelo, Mississippi DATE April 27, 2019 LOT NUMBER 429 RESERVE None AVERAGE SELLING PRICE N/A SELLING PRICE $128,800 BILLED AS “THE CAR OF A THOUSAND speeds,” the Owen Magnetic employed the innovative engineering of a magnetic drive system similar to that of a locomotive where the engine worked in tandem with the gearless transmission, which featured a generator and magnet assembly that replaced the flywheel. There was no direct linkage between the engine and drive wheels, and the driver adjusted the speed on the steering-column-mounted selector. Popular among the wealthy, the lowest-priced Owen Magnetic was almost $3,000 more than the lowest-priced Model T. This example, sporting a touring body, is powered by a six-cylinder 34-hp engine and claimed to have only 2,500 miles on the clock. Its specific history is known…

Tupelo Auction THE TUPELO MUSEUM COLLECTION WAS AUCTIONED OFF BY BONHAMS IN LATE APRIL and saw total sales of over $8.6 million, as the book closes on the old museum. Nearly a quarter of that tally was accounted for by a non-running 1948 Tucker 48 that sold for $1.985 million. Meanwhile, selling for $450,500 was this 1934 Duesenberg Model J Prince of Wales Berline, which was mostly all original, apart from its fenders that were taken from a Henney hearse.
