Picked these up at a local swap meet last weekend. They fit two Model T brake drums back to back (they are 2 inches wide).

They could be driveshaft mounted parking brakes for a later vehicle. This is GMC from the forties.

The first thing that came to my mind was Chrysler Products and I thought the little hole on the ends was odd. I found a picture of a band on eBay that seems to match. It is listed for a Dodge Power Wagon.

When I replaced the motor in my '53 Dodge Bro's. Pickup, I adjusted the emergency brake to tighten with about a half-way travel of the lever. We then took the truck for a test drive up the hill towards Mt. Shasta (about 3 miles up the hill), turned around and headed back down the hill. All of a sudden the truck lost power and pulled to a stop. My brother, who was 'riding shotgun' asked, "What ARE you doing??!!" I said, "Nothing, the truck is doing it by itself!" Well, we stopped, and after a few minutes we could go again, although I took it real easy. Got home and loosened that brake band some more!! Fortunately, no damage done, but boy oh boy, when that band drags, it heats things up! I imagine the same thing happens to T bands, except they're cooled by the oil bath.
