HELLO FROM WISCONSIN! Restoring a 1958 LH Drive Peerless GT


I set this account up to start interacting with Peerless people for my Grandfather, Richard Lichtfeld.  He is the owner.  HE also has the only 1916 Peerless Touring car left and has a 1917 as well.   That is what prompted him to purchase this GT 20 years ago and now the time has come to start the restoration.

 

I hope there is still a lot of interest in these cars, I am Grady, age 31, and Grandson of Richard Lichtfeld and want to say hello from Wisconsin.

The V-8 is a 1916 Peerless engine that we just restored--I don't think it would be as fast as the original triumph engine although it was ahead of it's time with roller tappets--four barrel two stage carburator W/ accelerator pump--cut out fan and such.

 That is actually the motor out of the 1916 peerless.  We are putting the original 2.0L back in rebuilt.  The GT will be pretty close to all original.

Hello Richard,
I am recommissioning a Wisconsin barn find Peerless which belongs to my brother Tom, who lives in Wauwatosa.
This is a remarkably nice car, which had been stored away in the early "70s, with about 40K miles.
What are your questions about the rear end?
Rich
