Parts I Need
I'm interested in any parts people may have which are in better condition
than the parts already on my car. Often it is easier to buy new parts than
to try and fix older parts.
The following is a partial list of parts I need. I'm still inventorying
the car, so I'll be adding to this list as I find new items I need. All
part numbers come from the 1929 Essex Parts List dated January 1929 for
cars numbered 928658 and upward.
Window cranks. I need a crank that matches the designs in this
Passenger Exterior Door Handle. I need a locking passenger handle. Looks
like almost all the hardware on the passenger door has been changed at one
time, don't know why.
Spare Tire and Rim Assembly (CW 63603). I need a spare tire for a 29
Essex. The rims have a diameter of 20", width of 4", split rim built by
Jaxon. You can see the complete wheel in this picture. I only
need the tire and rim, but am willing to purchase another wooden wheel as
Hubcaps (BZ 63584). These are the hexoganal hubcaps used on Essex
automobiles. I've seen the ones that have "Essex Motors Detroit" written
on them, but my hubcaps are fancier with no writing on them. You can see
them on the wheel picture above. The
hubcaps I have work, but are dented. I'm going to try straightening out
and re-chroming them but it might be cheaper to just get new hubcaps that
are already in good condition.
Tool kit assembly for wood wheels (BZ 64159)
- Wheel Puller (GZ 11074)
- Wheel Puller Screw (GZ 26557)

- Oil Can (BZ 63425)
- Spark plug and main bearing nut wrench (BM 22594)
- Eccentric adjusting wrench (BZ 60625)
- Hub cap wrench (GZ 31149 - I have this now)
- Valve Tappet and oil pump wrench (BZ 31356)
Knob for the gearshift. (BS 29170)
Various gauges. I need the oil pressure gauge for sure. I think I also
need a fuel gauge (the needle doesn't appear to be on mine). You can see
the instrument panel in
Choke Wire and Tube Assembly (BZ 81823)
Wooden and canvas parts for the roof, or at least plans on how to
fabricate new parts.
Wiper Blade for the windshield wiper.
Side lamp retaining ring
Stop and Tail Lamp assembly (BZ 31250)
Steering wheel (CZ 63634). Mine is cracked in many places. It probably
could be repaired, but it's easier to get a new one that's in good
Tire Carrier Arm (BZ 82022) and arm nut (BZ 78916). This has a triangular
shaped head on one end that attaches to the rear of the car. The other end
attaches to the spare tire holder. See this photo
of the spare tire carrier and this
closeup of the missing piece.
Rubber mats and felt pad assembly (CO 80210) as well as the dash pad (BO
Oil Level Gauge (dipstick) (BM 62359)
