Most everything police related on that car is not original CPD. The "Police Alarm" on the door is off the side of a building.

My avatar pic is of CPD taking deliver of 1929 Phaetons. The vehicles were void of any excessive decoration. They typically had CPD or Police on the hood, a number on the doors and a number on the roof.

Here is a picture of a '36 Ford Paddy Wagon that shows how devoid of any major bling it had. http://copcardotcom.fotki.com/photog...940struck.html

Here is a 20's era CPD wagon as well. This one has the bell in front of the radiator, the first and only time I've seen a picture like that. Most other ones had a bell on the passenger running board.
http://copcardotcom.fotki.com/photog...ized-patr.html The website refers to it as a '24 Ford but that radiator doesn't look 20's Model T to me.

I can't wait until I (hopefully) get to see this thing pulled out of the barn or at least with all the crap off of it (notice all the tennis rackets stacked up on the front seat).

That's an easy answer that is a WHITE not a Ford. Thanks for all your posts on this collection, I really want to get out there to at least see it. http://copcardotcom.fotki.com/photog...ized-patr.html The website refers to it as a '24 Ford but that radiator doesn't look 20's Model T to me.

During these first days of the great removal at Hartungs Museum ~ I am happy to iPhone short video footage of this historic sell-off of Lee's lifes work is drag-outside. I was told to "Keep Out" so I video outside the new Chain-link fence with both Iphone and my new Nikon D5000 digital video to archive this historic event.
The fat security guard yelled No Photo's which I yelled back I.m on public land and snapped her fat ass also

email me at Wilmette46@gmail.com happy to share video's of the yard with all the pieces before they are stashed away

Well, two videos popped up on Youtube the other day showing the dismantling of the collection.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5rtgYGwllE

You can see in the first video a shot of Wayne Carini looking over one of the cars. So, you know it has to have some impressive stuff.

Here, someone goes around talking to various workers at the site interviewing them about working there...not all that terribly interesting but if you watch the background you can see a lot of the stuff.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJTA0..._order&list=UL

The first video also offers this shot...

As you can see, it is a AA Bus that has bars added to the side windows. It is NOT an original 285-A or 290-A Police Patrol as manufactured by Ford in '31. Still pretty cool to see though.

Looks like RM has got 642 lots listed on there website. It's amazing to see the conglumeration of a collection actually broken down and be able to see everything that was there. Does anyone know if they plan to put out a printed catalog. I would be interested in buying one although I have no intentions of going to the auction.

That is a lot of crap! Funny to me though, the five very specific items I want from that collection don't appear in any of those pictures. The auction "newspaper" they were handing out at Hershey was saying there will be over 2,000 lots. The guy running the auction said in an interview they are "shooting for 2,500" lots.

Still a ton of stuff to be brought out to the light of day.

Should be interesting to see if the other 1868 lots will make it to the website.

Although it's not a Model A, does anybody here know anything about this 1932 Essex type car? Were they any good back in the day and are parts impossible to find?

Essex was basically a Hudson on a more economical scale. Hudson engineers were very good at what they did and the Essex shares from this same gene-pool.

Based on the pictures, I not sure exactly what parts you feel like it will need but consider the fact that 1932 was about the last year for the Essex, ....and there is no Berts, Snyders, Brattons, etc. for reproduction Essex parts. When you own an orphan car, you generally are forced to "restore" what is there instead of 'replace' parts.
