According to the previous owner,this had a Buffalo wire wheel front hub on it to hold a spare wheel,he kept the hub. This is all I received and it will need some substantial mounting brackets whether it is used in the rear or on a runningboard. It is about 36" long,holes are 34 1/2" apart and it's fairly weighty. The copyright 1971 Crestline Ford book shows a 1913 touring in the '15 section with possibly one of these holding a wire above the runningboard,page 39. If you can use it price is $150 and $38 to ship.
Does anyone know of a wire-wheeled car that has one of these carriers with the stands or mounting brackets that could be a visual pattern? Many folks want to change over to wire wheels and I can't blame them but a rim carrier for woods will rarely work even with modification. Unless they are going to tie the spare on with rope,something like this will be needed.
