What did you find at Luray???

Post by James_Lyons-WV » Wed Oct 07, 2020 6:29 pm

Luray was awesome... report on your finds so everyone can see. I did well. I found a good brass hub fan with a good crown, three boxes of n.o.s. ball type wheel bearing parts, along with a box of used ones to sort through, compliments of Mike Silbert. Bob Richmon is a nice guy and brought me a Model T tool box along with a rarely seen Maxwell belly pan. Tom Strickling sold me some Splitdorf Model H magneto parts, and after I made 35 trips past his booth, he gave me a great deal on a Maxwell carburetor- the likes of which I've never seen before. I also managed to find a 1908/09 straight script Maxwell hubcap. Bill price sold me some old school oil filters for my big block Chevelle, and I rounded out the day by purchasing another Luray hat to my collection. If you didnt make it to Luray, you missed a great one-time FALL event to take the sting out having no Hershey. If you did make it, let's see your treasures!

Awesome stuff. I like the wheel bearing parts and the brass hubbed fan. Cool Maxwell cap too.

When did I do that?

I wish I would have made an offer and bought the C35 Rajo next to where Dennis was set up. :cry:

I came home with 10 or 11 different items, but this 5Z-210 flywheel cap screw wrench is my favorite find.

Very happy with my trip to Luray! Great people, weather was perfect, and I was able to find some items I had been searching for. Came home with two hoods, one for each car. A very nice radiator apron. An open car rear view mirror. Two jacks, that appear to have the original handles with them. A Fordson tool box, that is going on my torch cart ! A couple NH cores, 21" split rims, and a front fender. Caint wait for next years event !

Sorry no photos, I was looking for a lug/spark plug wrench got 1 for $1 and a Model T screw jack paid $20. My best del was none auto related it was a turbo-torch with regulator, hose, torch and 2 tips for $5.00. Bought a spare coil and a new repo outside mirror for a T. Met and talked to some great folks. I been going to Luray for 4-5 years this one was great. Wish they could have one in the fall every year but, I realize that there would be a conflict with Hershey. Great job.

I'll post other photos elsewhere, but for treasures I bought some T literature, a few tools, a couple of timers, side-lamp burners, some speedo stuff including a couple of NOS wheel gears, a decent 15 windshield assembly, and some other windshield parts to be used as a display for a set of wind-wings I've got, and a hand-full of brass thumb-nuts for spark plugs. My big prize is a fantastic early self generating headlamp - Autolyte, circa 1903/4. Every year when I go to Hershey, aside from hunting for more early plugs for my collection, I set the goal of buying at least one very nice piece of brass for my lamp collection. No Hershey, so we did it at Luray. The lamp is the only find I've got photo's so far as the truck hasn't been unpacked yet.

Here’s a few of the things I picked up at the swap along with a 27 long block.
I also picked up a engine run in stand on the way to Luray.

I found these DISTEEL wheels restored by Dan Treace. I have always wanted a set and these are beauties! Came with new bearings tubes, tires, and flaps and a Disteel wrench and Disteel air gauge. Just got them on my Fordoor yesterday.
