Early Durant parts

Hi:
I just got a call from an elderly gentleman in Boston. He told me that he bought and sold old buildings. The one he just bought had several real old Durant parts and he would like to get them to someone who could use them. This is what he said that he had:

an Early Durant motor (he thought 1923) 4 cyl overhead valve
Durant Transmission and Drive line.

He said that these items had been stored for a very long time, and were not rusty but rather clean.

He gave me his name and phone number and would appreciate a call.

His Name: Al Proctor
Phone No. 1 - 781 - 878-6073

He said that he had tried to reach other folk, but the phone numbers he had for them did not work out.

Please call him.

Re: Early Durant parts

Hi Gordon.

I tried to call Al Proctor this morning to see if anyone from DMAC had contacted him about the Durant parts. No one answered at the number listed in your post and I was not able to leave a message.

I also tried to call club member John Baraldi who lives in Chelmsford, MA, which is about 25 miles NE of Boston, but the phone number listed for him in the Roster is no longer in service.

It would be nice if someone from our club could get those old parts before they go for scrap and are lost forever. Or at least thank Al for thinking of us before disposing of the old Durant parts.

Re: Early Durant parts

Thanks Robert for your tries to reach Al Proctor. That is the phone number that appeared on my phone and the persons name was (Lola Procter) Al said his name was spelled Proctor so that was what I published. It sure would be great if someone could contact him. He sounded genuine to me at the time.
