Below is a pic of the spare tire mount I presently have for a 1924 Coupe. I don't think it is the right kind for this year. How does this mount to the back/underside of the Coupe? If I need a different mount, I'd appreciate some pics of what it looks like and how it mounts.
What you have pictured is the set-up for a '26-'27 Coupe and Runabout - they have the attachment points built into the rear of the back panel. You need the style that mounts onto the rear of the frame itself and is a 3/4 hoop type affair that your tail lamp and license plate will also attach. Considering the photo above shows a 30" rim - will that be your spare ?
Here's the mount on my 23/24 coupe.

Thanks for the input. The spare is a 30 inch. Any idea where I can track down one of the proper mounts? I don't see them in the Macs and Snyders catalogs.
A 26-27 sedan/touring unit would fit up pretty easy. A little more heavy duty as well. troop
All cars from about 1922 to 25 used the same left and right brackets that mount to the frame. The U shaped metal that the tire gets mounted to with the cross brace for light and plates was the same 1919 to 25 for the 30 inch wheels. The one type fits all is why it leans back at the top so can also be used on the touring along with coupe and roadster.
With the wood frame in the trunk you would have to do some reinforcing to use that type. Remember the rear panel is just nailed on.
Troop: are you referring to the gooseneck style for the 26/27 touring?
I'll look I think I have at least the arms on a extra frame firstname.lastname@example.org

YUP. They give plenty of clearance, just need to fab a "Y" thatll fit the 30" rims... troop
A little lesson in geometry 101 LOL...
that top picture looks like a made up affair, the mount that attaches to the body looks like a model A, it should be round where it attaches to the body for 26 27 model T.
Astute observation Mike - you are correct. The "Y" is Model T and a hard to come by 30" at that.
I have several hanging up on the wall if John Danuser doesn't find any. They're for a 23" rim and that'll fit a 30 X 3 1/2 tire. PM me if you still need one. . . .george
