Re: 29 Roadster Measurements Needed!!!

Those pictures are super helpful! As much as I still need the measurements, this will be a huge help as I figure out how to rebuild.

Re: 29 Roadster Measurements Needed!!!

Hi Mike you have a M2 Star Coupe made between Jan 1 1928 to March 31 1928 at the New Jersey plant. M2 Star became the M2 Durant April 1 1928. Vins start at 1001 again but with Oakland now making M2 Durant's as well.

Don't go by durantcars info on vins with that to E-34999 ? and no Leaside.
We presently have nine M2 Stars in the Registry, eight Eliz and one Leaside. Of the eight five are coupes. Yours will now make six.

M2 Star Jan 1 1928 to Mar 31 1928
Eliz plant E-1001 to E- 6000
Leaside plant T-1001 to T-2000

M2 Durant Apr 1 1928 to July 31 1928
Eliz plant E-1001 to E-35000
Oakland C-1001 to C-10000
Leaside T-1001 to T-8013

1929 model year M2 Durant Aug 1 to Sept 30 1928
Eliz E-35001 to E-37000
Oakland C-35001 to C-37000
Leaside T-8014 to T-9300
Again don't go by durantcars with those vins and Lansing didn't make M2

And yes there is a big vin jump at Oakland presumably to make it seem Billy made more cars than he did. The Registry shows vehicles within the ranges shown.
