Club Historian
In the early days of the Kaiser-Frazer Owners Club, it was decided that it would be a good idea to have a historical department. Someplace, someone, some source was needed to address the questions people had about restoration of cars, company history, etc. That person would be the Club Historian. Only two people have held the Club Historian title. Bill Tilden handled the post for many years. At the 1991 National Convention Jack Mueller was appointed to the post.

Since joining the club in 1975, Jack has gathered a broad-based archive of things Kaiser-Frazer. There is no charge for researching inquiries, but they should be limited to K-F related topics. If there is something more or less specific you are looking for, please let him know. Unfortunately, he has no information on where specific K-F products were sold-- either who the selling dealer was or the original owner. While K-F originally kept such records, evidently nobody bothered to save them in the 1960's when a lot of old paperwork went into the trash.

If you are asking about a specific year/make/model of car, his reply may indicate that other pages of documentation could be available for a slight cost. A lot of his archive documents can be supplied to people on a photocopy basis. The standard rate is 15 cents a page, with a minimum of 6 pages.
Please don't ask questions such as "where can I get a such-and-such for my car" or things like "what's the best paint to use" or "how do I remove/clean/repair this part." Jack does not want to put in the position or recommending one parts vendor over another and he is not a master mechanic or body repair person.
Jack can be reached by mail at: Jack Mueller, 107 Eastland Ct., Cave City, KY 42127.  Be sure to include a stamped self addressed envelope for his reply. He can be reached by email as well.
