1936 Windshield regulator searched
 

Hi guys, as my 1936 windshield regulator does not work anymore, I am searching for a new one. Who knows if there are any to buy?
Thanks for your help.

If you find one grab it. Many sources have been out of stock or "back ordered" for quite a while.

None of these business's have any left. Bob Drake claims that maybe sometime next year...

It looks like the box says 33-36. Is that correct Michael?

What you can see on the front of the box does say 1933-36. What you can't totally see on the front of the box is pictures of two different parts (1933-34 and 1935-6) and on the side of the box is a "tick off" area to show which model is enclosed.

Someone stepped up and bought the $350 Drake unit that was on eBay. Wow!

Sorta like the Guy trying to sell the two "new in box", never to be made again, 1936 Drake rear fenders for twice the price. If only you knew this was gonna happen to some of theses parts!

I've seen a couple of sets priced at 2500-3000 and marked sold recently. Who would have thought...

This may be the reason Bob Drake stopped selling them.....let the prices of those who purchased quantities at the initial price skyrocket, and then Bob can start selling them again at a much higher price than first offerings.

I just wish Bob D would reproduce the '35 grille in standard or deluxe, and all four '35 fenders.

From what I heard Bob is not going to make any more 36 rear fenders.As for the 35 grill and fenders -not going to happen.

I don't think it will ever happen either, although whenever I see him at the shows, I always suggest it would be great if he did.
