Updating our rebuild, find below the work in progress.

Excellent rebuild and it is the car I have seen before on Toyota Landcruiser wheels.(GM based vehicle) Looking at the engine though with the plugs positioned as they are would make this a 26hp Cadet with the 3.5 litre engine unless of course the head has been replaced. Fan is incorrect though and the correct one can be obtained from the American Chevrolet site. <www.fillingstation.com> you can get a multitude of spares for the Cadet from this site including king pins and bushes, water pumps, plugs, fuel pump repair kits ect.

Further comments - the oil filler cap should be aluminium for which I can supply you with a drawing, The side lights look correct if missing the rims - the type are as fitted to the same period Rileys, Intersting you have replaced the wheels with what look like 16" period looking spokes. The car should have 19" wheels with a large hub and appx 6

The car should have 19" wheels with a large hub and appx 6" hub caps if it really is a 1932 Cadet. It is possible however that it is a late 1931 Cadet which would mean that the wheels you have fitted are not unlike the original Series 1 (1931) cars which were of Riley design. The head lights look series one/two design which had a rim width of 7/8" whereas the series 3 cars of 1933 had a rim width of 1.5". The flutes on this car were never chromium plated, just painted in a contrasting colour. You will find the central bonnet hinge is of stainless steel and polishes up quite well.

Looking at the rear of the car the tail lights are incorrect and probably off a period ford Model A. The tail lights and numberplate were hinged off the rear carrier so that they worked in both positions of the luggage carrier. I can supply you with photographs of my 1931 open tourer showing this assembly if you need it.Noticed your spare wheel holders have been modified for the modern Toyota wheels. The originals clamped over the top of the wheel with a screw fitting. You can use the clamps from the Model 'a' Vauxhall as an alternative. Again I can supply photographs of the correct fittings.

From your pictures the engine looks like the export version 26hp though perhaps the head has been changed as the one you have is off this larger engined Cadet
