It's been over 20 years since I worked on rebuilding an engine, which was on a 1961 Chevrolet heavy-half truck, and I'm curious, what are some of the ways to build old engines so that they'll run on unleaded gasoline, besides putting stainless steel valves?
Does modern unleaded gasoline have something in it that allows you to use it in pre-mid 1970s automobiles?
With Jeepster sales not improving, no long-range plans and no new models in development, Canaday suddenly decided in early 1950 that it was time to produce an all-new car, and to do so as quickly as possible.
Meanwhile Canaday’s broker Vance associated himself with another broker, Millar Brainard, who arranged a meeting between Canaday and Cyrus Eaton, an investor who was at odds with the Kaisers over performance of his Kaiser-Frazer investment.
