    No website, no price, just a mailing address and a phone number and a description.

    Repro propeller - Exact as the original except for one improvement, a hex to the end of the mounting bolt so you can hold the stud while mounting and removing. The stud is stainless steel so it will not rust. The propeller measures 7" across with a 1/4" mounting stud. Show chrome. - 203-265-4311

      I think this is the one I bought. Appears to be the same as the original “Lindberg Props”.

        Matthew, how was the balance on this prop? Mine is wildly/grossly out of balance, but it was NOS.

          This set has a '51 spinner that I reverse engineered and never got around to around to printing it. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1097574 Somebody let me know if it fits or not.
          1963 Champ "Stu Bludebaker"- sometimes driver
          1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
          1951 Land Cruiser "Bunnie Ketcher" only 47M miles!
          1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case
          1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
          1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

            Roy, I didn’t think to check. The Suwannee Sightseeing car doesn’t get driven too fast, anyway.

              Mine has good bearings, but is so lopsided that if you spin it by hand, it rather quickly stops with one blade down - the same blade every time. I have ground a little off the end of that blade and will have to grind more before using it again. Could you try spinning yours and see how it stops, please?

                I didn’t notice it stopping in the same place, but that car isn’t at the shop so I can’t say for sure.

                I just ordered another one of the propellers for another project. I’ll report back as soon as I receive it.

                  I'd think that, if it's as severely out of balance, as Roy suggests? It will take a good bit more speed, just to start it spinning!

                    It's got pretty good bearings, so it's easy to spin. The imbalance makes it vibrate and make noise. I should just balance mine and test it.

                      Just checked my inventory and find two NOS with original boxes and instruction sheets. I have noted that they also offered a three bladed prop. I have never seen one of those. I also have a NOS nose (cyclop) light in original box with installation instructions. .
