Remember it's either a runner or a shelfer. Everything else is just parts.

Yes they did make the top bearing dust cover back in the day. I appreciate your kind words and keep looking cause there are deals out there, you just got to keep looking. "Even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then"

nice one :)

For the non native speakers here - what's an estate sale? Like a garage sale that happens in trunks of station wagons or what?

thanks :)

estate sales are generally when a person passes away, the family or 'estate' if there is no family will have liquidation sales to help offset any costs the deceased may have left behind, or for any number of other reasons.

usually good for deals and interesting finds, but obviously you need to be at the right place at the right time, and stay on top of advertisements of said sales.

So where did the lower perches come from, here? And the Mauri rear tires on this car, as they are not the actual "goodyear's" that came on the early buggy?

Clear now - I thought this was some kind of tailgate sale (aren't station wagons called "estate" too? ;) )

thank you :)
