Are these hooks for gypsy curtains or something else?

Will, they are for side curtains., Im not 100% sure they are not for 26-27 Improved models , but I have never seen them listed or used on 26-27 models. I believe they are correct for 1915 to 1925. The "gypsy curtains" will attach to the "lift the dot" fasteners, and do not use a clip like you show. By the way, that is a nice photo showing the very early "notched" windshield post used on early 1926 Improved open cars. It shows the "notch" area very clearly against the lighter body panel. I would like to "copy" it for my files on the Improved models .... if you do not mind .... have fun and be safe Donnie Brown ...

Hi Donnie,
This image is from McCalley page 394. ( I hope I'm not infringing on anyone rights). the clips are from my early '26. A while back you were asking about '26 front fenders and the different changes made. I have my '26 fenders here but they are at the shop. I could go take a picture of them on Monday if that will help you.
Here are some images of my stanchions. Maybe not as clear but a least they are my images,

Will, Thanks for the pictures. I would love to see a good photo of your fenders. Im interested in the inside view of the area that the splash apron attaches to. There are at least three different known variations of the inner re-inforcement to that area. Thanks
