Remove the valve cover and undo the oil line at the front of the engine and pour in the oil.

Re: Personal Collection Photos

Yes. Radio station WINS put on a contest with a Singer as a prize. Not sure of the details, but Tony Rizzuto (NY Yankees) was the winner. It looks like you had to be a baseball player to enter. I'm sure someone could get some archival information on this if they were really industrious. radoi_apprec...

Earliest it would be is Oct '32. Can't tell from the photo, but it looks like it has a spare tire cover.

Re: Singer LM 1.5 'Put Together Quickly!

David, It was more of a refresh than a restoration, not to minimize the effort. I had the pleasure of driving the car when Lindsay and I stayed with him and Jasmine a few years back.

Personal Collection Photos

A couple of new pictures that I have recently acquired. Others from the same shoot have been previously seen. The first shot is of Bill Vaughan and Phil Rizzuto. The shot commonly seen has Rizzuto in the drivers seat, having just taken possession of his new Singer. In this one, Vaughan is behind the...
