Kapok Cushions & Spring Sets

Postby kiitos » Sun Jun 11, 2017 8:02 am

I have completed the leather interior in my 1949 25' Sportsman with twin engines. I decided to not use the original springs nor the kapok bags that are in the loosee cushions on top of the base cushions. The leather cushions are cracked and torn but the kapok bags seems to be intact. I am wondering if there is any monetary value to the spring assemblies and kapok cushions?

Thanks.

Perhaps Not..,
But I would still like to see these, that you say are 'Original'?
I have many photos, myself, that lead to Originality.
Perhaps we could trade photos?

Hey,
You got any of them "Loosee" cushions left?

I have 1938 and 1946, 'original' cushions, photos of many others.

The "loose" cushions are gone. I stated they were original based on the fact that they still had the US Deptartment of Commerce approved tags for flotation. The base cushions or spring sets still had the cotton covers stamped with Motor City Spring Company and the hull number. I still have the spring sets. Here are the only photos that I have.
