What is it.Can anyone identify this 6 cylinder engine & its approximate year?  It is in a 1930 Chrysler chassis aluminium bodied special.

We suspect it to be a 3.0 litre continental engine but have no direct proof nor experience in identifying such things.

Mystery Bleriot Headlamp

Mystery Bleriot HeadlampMy friend Mohamed Rasheed, happens to own an interesting (20's? 30s?) Bleriot headlamp. Photos are attached.

Is it possible to identify from which vehicle this headlamp came off. We reckon a French made vehicle between 1920 & 1930.

Many thanks for your never ending support.
