Re: lockheed decal

Also note the original 3 1/2" style pre-war license plate lettering: Alloy numbers riveted to a steel plate. Around this time they may also have been painted numbers or a cast alloy plate. One super-rare detail usually missing off restored 33/34 LM's is the dash lamp mounted on a brass base at ...

Re: lockheed decal

What a great shot! Very useful for determining original details on the '34 type LM. Note the Lucas ST-38 'Porkpie' tail lamp with horizontal ribs to the glass lense...and...of course...that 'Singer' decal on the wing.

And here's another shot of the rear wing decal from a period road test article on the 1935 LM SS:

Re: lockheed decal

Wow! Yes! Count me in for at least two! This must be one of the rarest pieces of Singer unobtainium! I wrote about these some years ago and have only seen them in brochure and publicity photos. Fitted to the badge bars on Singer sports cars from 1934 to 1936 to cover the starting handle hole. Some p...

Re: lockheed decal

Hey Darcy, There were two water transfer decals on the cars that I can tell you right away; the Lockheed decal on the brake reservoir and a "Singer" logo on the left rear wing. There are other screened and stamped metal 'plates', such as the one on the distributor and coil, as well as the ...

BRITISH INVASION 2017 OFFICIAL THREAD...ARE YOU GOING? CHECK IN HERE!

There has been quite a bit of buzz about the 2017 British Invasion and one of the rumours going around is that this year will be the last invasion! We've been in touch with Mike Gaetano, who is very much a supporter of The Men in White and our Singer displays and this is his response: "...I sus...

Re: lockheed decal

Hey Mike,

Yes...this is the one I recommended and saw at Beaulieu on their stand. He had a few back then.

The vertical looks like the one that Trevor Cornelious used to sell. I have one, but it is basically a colour photocopy. This is more like the one shown in the '35 handbook.

Re: WANTED Singer Car Owners Information

Hey Conor, As Pre-War registrar of NASOC, I'd love ot get some more photos and data (chassis number, etc) for my records. Would you be interested in writing an article about the car for our club magazine? I am sure it would be of interest to our members. I also own the remains of a Bantam Tourer. Le...

Re: Under frame window seal

Hey John, Fred is correct. Bill had made the original style windscreen rubber and sold a lot of them. He also did a very nice proper enameled radiator badge. ASCO bought all of Bill's spare after he passed away, so I am sure Barry will steer you in the right direction. I believe the spares are now i...

Re: 1934 Windscreen Posts / staunchness

Hey Darcy,

The larger windshield post you have is for an early Roadster - R or A series up to 1949.

The 'eyelet' on the upper section is the giveaway...it's the pivot for the side screen.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,
Phillip

Hey Fred,

Something slightly hilarious about the fact that Summit Racing sells tractor mufflers!

It is indeed the same beast!

Re: New Owner Here

Hey Scott, Here's a great photo from Fred Tag's 4AD restoration album. Looks like he may have used the muffler I mentioned...or something very similar: Fred Tag muffler.jpg This is a great view to show the location and set-up of the muffler assembly. Fred mounted the system differently to the origin...
