I bought a several boxes of junk at an auction last week. I don't know what these things are. Can anyone identify them?
#1) This is some kind of a step plate. It had a hexagon intertwined with a triangle. Does that mean anything:
#2) I think this is part of a Model A Ford, but what?
#4) It's a fan, but what is it for?
#5) It's a handle for something?
#6) Model A Taillight?
That handle is for an early 40's Ford or Mercury. The fuel pump is for a flat head Ford.
#2 Rear hub backing plate grease baffle
#3 Parking brake pall 28 to 29 with parking brake handle to front of gear shift lever
#6 not sure if tail lamp is Model A, the wire mounting looks wrong as it would have used bullets that pushed in, the bracket looks to be mid 29 to end of production (A)
#7 looks like a diaphragm fuel pump.
The first part looks like Free Mason secret code, the rest are car parts.
The aluminum step plate in the first photo will go on either a Hudson (triangle) or an Essex (hexagon). Essex was a mid-sized car built by Hudson from 1919 to 1932 when it was replaced by Terraplane.
The Essex was a "milestone car" due to the fact that Essex offered a closed car (two door coach) within a few dollars of the open car thus allowing people to afford a closed car in parts of the country where cold weather was common.
I should have added 2 and 3 are Model A parts.
I don't recognize the fan but must be a cut down six blade from some other car. It may have had a ring around the outside of the blades. Mid-teens Maxwell and Reo used a similar fan (with ring) but used 3 rivets per blade. Dodge used a 4 blade(no ring).
I think #1 is a step-plate for entering a rumble-seat. Most were circular, as in the photo.
