The black one looks like a flathead Ford crab cap.
It is a Ford part. I don’t think as early as pre-53. Good call.
The nice thing is that you can get one anywhere.
But on the old Bosch-look one, nothing really ever goes wrong. It’s electronic and not mechanical.
Pre 49 Ford flat head front distributor.
Interesting. I had a 221ci ‘36 flathead motor and it looked different.
As posted in Silver Subscribed, I bought a new one:
I can’t imagine that there are many buyers for a car like this.
I think that Carriage House missed its opportunity.
Agreed. I think whomever is the seller ought to consider getting it titled. Would make it so much more marketable. I would love to buy one of thes, but no way am I going to through the initial titling process in MO.
Does anyone know what happened to this car?
I’m only curious. I already ordered my 35B.
But if it ever sold, I’d love to hear for how much.
My friend just bought their Swaters blue 456 today.
Guess what? The Pur Sang is still there, although not on their website.
That is a shame.
Because there’s no top, it’s taking up shop space.

Hmmm, wonder if there is any more flexibility on price or title?
It doesn’t matter to me now.
I don’t need another one!
I was think more along the line of those of us on the fence about owning one. I think I would really like to get one, but MO is a really pain to get something like this titled.
If you’re really, really serious I can assist in titling.
Thank you so much for the offer. I may just give them a call and see what's up.
Let me know, Steve.
Just an update...
The Carriage House Pur Sang is STILL for sale.
At this point it’s been sitting for 6 years...
If they thought you low balled in 2018,... I can’t imagine what they’d think of my offer in the Covid era!
I’m sure it is.
They don’t know how to sell cars. The junior guy never took my offer to the owner, it turns out.
That was a mistake on their part. But I’m happy!
They need to hire old school "Bobby!"
There is one coming up tat the elkhart collection auction in October. That is closer to the spec I want,... so might bid on that.
If you do, let me know if you need help in registering it for the road.
Will do,... and thank you!
Might register it in BC though. I have a place in Whistler,... and it would be a hoot around BC in the spring / summer.
Have no idea if they are Canada legal though...
I contacted them late 2019, and they were not giving me a lot of information on the car.
Seeing I'm local to Pur Sang's John Bothwell in SoCal, I got in touch with him to learn more about the actual car.
He had talked to them several times to get the car over to his shop for inspection and warranty renewal, but they won't let him see it. So if you buy it, it's without warranty.
@Smiles which spec did you get? (the link above doesn't work for me)
I have a huge thread in Silver Subscribed. It has too much personal info to be shared publicly.
Didn't even know about Silver and Rosso packages. Upgraded, will find my way over to the thread once my account upgrade processes.
