Packard Gear shift Knob

I just acquired a 1937 115c coupe and the car came with a glass door knob in place of the normal gear shift knob. I removed it and got online to see about finding an original, to no avail. So, being a woodworker, I made a new one from walnut. Here is a picture just after varnishing. Has a sleeve ins...

Radiator cap removal

I just bought a 1937 115c business coupe. I have a question.. how is the radiator cap removed? It has a wire bale over the top, but I cannot figure out how it is removed. I am hesitant to force anything. Lee
