I need four of the metal pieces that attach to the bottom of the wood frame model t window that holds the leather strap to pull the window up with. Maybe even the later piece that goes on the glass would work or I can make it work. Frank 818-254-6797 Thank You
I would even settle for drawings or pictures of the part if someone has it. All closed cars had windows with pull straps. I could make it if I knew what the part is supposed to look like. Please.
On our '20 Center Door, the windows sit in a three sided metal channel with the strap attached to the bottom. Is this what you're looking for? The three sided channel rises/lowers in the wooden channel of the door or body framing. Thus, each channel has to be made to fit the window in that position. I have two different sizes.
Frank you might want to be a little more specific as to what car you are working on. Your profile shows a 1912 town car. If that is the case, the later cars, the windows sat in the metal channel and did not have the wood frame. Wouldn't the lifting strap be mounted to something like a footmans loop that would be attached to the bottom of the sash? I do not have the needed info just trying to help.
Oh! You might post this as a question on the forum. Maybe someone there might have a photo or two of how it's done or other suggestions.
You are both correct, I should put this into the forum but you never know if someone has all or part of such a pull strap holder. I vagely remember this piece on my 18 centerdoor but unfortunately I sold it so I cannot look. (I wish I still had it) The wood window frame on the towncar is only 1/2 inch thick and no room to put a screw without splitting the wood. On my centerdoor the hook/loop that held the cloth strap was on the bottom, I think, or should it be on the side?
