This has been in the works for a year and just got the 1st few done
Early front license plate bracket with crank holder also anti theft device
there is a place to pad lock the starting crank in the upper position, I am sure the idea was not being able to crank the car but it could be pushed, still great accessory,Bob

I sold 5 on t bay in last 2 days I have 2 left at the low price today at 75.00 ea. after that the new batch will be nice and polished so price will be close to 100.00 or more depending on polisher, Bob

Bob, just a suggestion, you might want to have them available both ways. Dave

I will they will be in cast ready to paint and polished, thank you, just sold 1 they are almost gone 1 left for about a few weeks to a month, Bob
this is a special price, have not got the bill from machine shop yet
Note! these fit the early starting crank but can be ground for later cranks
this is just like the original sample

That's pretty slick, nice pattern work! What keeps it out of the way whilst cranking... do you just always make sure you stop short of TDC on the handcrank?

Bob, Glad you are doing this project that I also had plans for but could never get my hands on a good original to work from. You have done an excellent job on it. For these that want to see one on a T. Here's some shots of one mounted. First shot is in the crank up position and second in the cranking position and the last showing the spring in the back needed to hold the crank holder up and out of the way during cranking. It also keeps pressure on the holder when the crank is up so it doesn't allow the crank to jump out while driving. You should do well with this. Bob
