  • EMF Barn Find

    Last week on my auto tech forum, iATN, a shop owner in Minnesota posted that a customer brought in an all original 1912 EMF/Flanders for them to get running. He wasn't sure how long it had been sitting, but was last licensed in 1927!
    He was asked for a pic but never posted one. It is after all, a customer's car, not his own.

    I wish I knew where it is. I'm in Minnesota.

        I love the thought of brass-era stuff stil out there waitingto be found.

          Norwood is a 40 minute drive from my door. Hmmm...

              It actually looks in pretty good shape for its age... Would be neat to see it restored. [8D][^]

                  Bob, I'm not seeing that, but it DOES appear there's a Climb-atizer sticking out thru the firewall.[}]

                      Not sure about that forced induction, but any ideas on the correct battery bracket (and correct wing nuts...) Bob?

                        [8D] Good question. Didn't those things have little individual dry cells that you parked in a wooden box? I honestly don't know. BP

                          Ah, there ain't nuthin' that dropping in a small block Chevy couldn't cure! &lt;rolleyes&gt;

                          What a neat barn find! Is the owner going to restore the car? Or he just wants it running?? I bet you could have knocked the shop owner over with a feather when this was towed in! Very neat indeed![]

                            Any ballpark numbers for its value
                            in its current conditon
                            and restored condition.

                              The box on the running board held the dry cell batterys. They were used for starting then you switch to the magneto. I had the 1910 EMF that is in the SNM here last year to get running for the owner. Had to replace the rear axels and bearings along with the clutch and other things. Jim
