    May I suggest that -- first thing Wednesday morning -- you go over to the Hudson booth in the Red Field and post a message on the bulletin board there, with this information? There will undoubtedly be people at our flea market space from all over the world, most of whom won't see this Forum message, but who would are potential customers. The flea market space is RNE 24-25, in the small portion of the Red Field that is between the old stadium and Hersheypark Drive.

    I would be interested in most of these parts. I bought a 29Essex Roadster last December and had it at the International meet in July.   Tom Brintnall, Hershey spaces RNE 31-34.

    My booth is C1A 3-4

    Jon - I will swing by for sure. Good idea.

    Tom - Happy to work with you. Very glad to see another roadster on the road. Body parts like sill plates, door latches and such are a bear to get photos of much less parts for.

    Like most Essex owners I’ve met, I accumulated parts over the years just in case. Mechanically, my roadster is as solid as it can reasonably be so what’s left is really a repaint decision (I like signs of use) and the minor make-accurate decisions for a new owner. So the shelves are being swept clean. Check your wheel bearings. It took me 5years to find a set because of the unique configuration so when two sets turned up in an Oregon barn I grabbed them. Swapped my old but working set out and shelved them along with the other set.
