Modelworks has designed a very close replica of the original Locomobile. Their concentration of the mechanics and the safety of this machine have been greatly appreciated by this builder. As a truest to the original design, I have endeavored to take the Likamobile “platform” and enhance its design features. With this in mind we have designed some accessories that appear period correct but are made to fit the MW’s Likamobile.
To help make your Likamobile look more like the original, the following pieces are available for purchase or pre-manufacture order. Look over the list and view the pictures.
If you would like to order or have any questions you can contact me by.....
e-mail:- RicksKlassics@aol.com or call 732-890-0084.
Most prices include shipping in the continental United States, outside US extra. If you order more than one piece I will adjust shipping charges so you don’t pay double shipping.

Solid brass 1/8" thick plate with diamond tread,
recessed engraved "Locomobile".

the Likamobile hub cap, peel and stick, weatherproof.

Water tank drain valve
This valve is to be a direct replacement of the chrome cap at the tee for tank draining,
it is designed so the water will not drain onto the chain and rear housing. The pipe is
machined so it can be used with the metric tee compression fitting supplied with the
MW’s kit. Paint the handle to match chassis color
Price $65. USD
Water Level Sight Glass
This faux Brass Sight Glass is just for looks. The original had the sight
glass on the R/S of the body just below the lever quadrant. Filled/ sealed
with mineral oil to give that hot water look.
Price $ 110. USD
Period Pyramid Style rubber, available in Black or White. Oversized so you can custom
fit it to your car (3 feet x 3 feet).

The Likamobile boiler exhausts its heat down which is opposite of the original design.
The Flue on the back of the car is a necessity so that the original design is achieved.
This non- functioning, copy of the original, can be used to hold tools and fire
extinguisher. 2 rubber caps keep everything inside. (unpainted)
Price $ 112. USD
Leather Dash Board
The Likamobile will come with a wood dash but the original should be leather.
This dash duplicates the original Locomobile Dash Board. Designed to bolt directly
onto the Likamobile. Will look similar to the one pictured, metal framed with
Leatherette material, like the MW’s seat, see design photo for production. We are
taking initial orders so as to start production.
We anticipate approximately $300. USD (shipping not included).
Please contact me by email for any questions or to order.
