I don't recall ever seeing one like it. Can anyone tell me anything about it? If I ever get around to this project, I wonder whether I should keep this weird spring as a curiosity, or go stock.
Steve, I see some lettering on the perch castings, what does the lettering say?
I had one one time I think frymiller got it. I guess it could give a better ride.charley
I'll take the wirewheel hubs.
Henderson's springs in Australia made a similar set-up. Theirs looked a little prettier with the ends of the springs bent up a little. Chris Csorba may be able to post a photo of the set-up on his car.

I have one similar to it that will go on TT someday. Dave
I also have one
I have one very similar,Wide stance,more spring action. Should make for a smoother ride and better cornering.
It's a Trainor accessory front spring - they were marketed in Sweden, too - this ad is from a 1925 magazine:

Roger's posted link has the photos of my Henderson spring. The car is in my profile.
I intend replacing the double main leaf spring with a single sometime over Winter to reduce the nose-up angle of the car
Here's another make of extended front spring.
I've got two like the one above.
I want one !
There are a couple of cars with them here in Southern California.
The springs are nice but your jack stands worry me!
So far the stands have held up OK.
Steve When I first opened up this post, I started to get my camera and post a picture of another one.
After reading on I decided there were plenty pictures.
