Classic Motor organize a market every year together with Classic motor week on
the horse race track in Rättvik.
This is may be the best market in Sweden according to the engine and car parts for the hobby. Normally it used to be excess cheap entertainments and T-shirts.
The market area is also so large that quite many reseller can get a god place. The customer which normally stay in Rättvik for a week are of course a secure buyers for the seller, furthermore Dalarna is known to have many veteran cars and of this follow even big supply of parts.
If they want a special car, just walk out into the forest and cut some trees and then having money for their dream car. This is the for inhabitants in Dalarna. Furthermore there are many skilful people to renovate, not only in Vikarbyn.
Often the prize level is far too high on larger markets in Sweden, specially at Power meet in Västerås. But look at the prize for the moped 5500:- Skr. Not at all to high.
Look also at the moped Svalan Svalette for 3200:- Skr including original front fork. In order to buy a direct imported American car may be doubtful in many cases. Those which were for sale would cost more than an already renovated car. Look at the inlet with three carburettor head.
I had alike on my B-Ford roadster and Olds Rocket engine from 1954. This car stood one winter and then was frozen. The both aluminum heads could be for a Buick V8, but not the Al V8 engine which is much lesser.
The Packard Coupé was shown to be judging.
Read for a while ago about Martin Strömberg, when he change and bought one American diplomat's car, a Packard fully open. He froze in it for one year in the 40 th before he bought a Packard Clipper 1947.
One rebuilt Ford 33-34 with modern wheels uprights and a suitable V8.
May be the small Chevy, or Ford 289, are nice car to own.
The very rare Stutz 2 door coupé is only handsome up to the windscreen. This mark was in the same family and prize as some Duesenberg, Cadillac, Cord, Pierless, Pierce Arrow, Packard and may be several more luxury cars in the 30 th. The Chrysler with open engine hood is a 300 D or E. This car is often present. I saw it also at Wheels & Wings. It is a winner car, but the owner is boring when talking with the speaker. He has not learned to speak in the microphone. Hoping that the owner brings a less shy representative. It was awkward.
The Ford Prefect which was for sale loaded on the trailer is a typical car which some pensioner buys. A car like this was popular among working people in Sweden in the beginning of 50th.
There were two car which had been on fire. One was a Ford Cab. Wonder how this can happen?
