Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Russell Furstnow on Monday, October 26, 2015 - 11:07 pm:

I am currently restoring a 1913 runabout and am missing the braces that go between the windshield hinge and the body. I understand that there are 3 different lengths for these braces depending on the brand of windshield. I have a Vangaurd windshield with the piano hinge between the top and bottom frames. Does anyone know the length of the brace I need?

Thanks
Russell

Russ, I measured those on a friend's Vanguard with the piano hinge before I actually found an entire '13 winshield, seems to be they were 16". Gimme a day or two and I'll go measure 'em again. Or I'll have him do it and post it!!

Russ,

I just noticed you are restoring a runabout. My car is a touring. I assume they are the same.

The two sets of 1913 braces I have are 17 3/4" long. One set is 9/16" O.D. tubing and the other set is 5/8" O.D. tubing. They are both original sets.

Thanks for the info. Are you interested in selling a set?
Russell
