I see several boxes of accessory brakes for Ford cars, 6 tire pumps, 4 car jacks, but what I like is the rope on the counter. Perhaps it's used for tire traction or to pull out a Che*y !

Yeah; wouldn't you like to find those A-C brakes today in their original boxes?

Are there guesses as to what year this was? The abundance of sidelights and the straight accessory windshield make it appear to be before the high hood and slant windshield. The steering wheels seem to be the smaller version also. The headlight in the front case may have a clear lens too.

I have not seen that H pattern steering g wheel before.... NICE pic!!

I am putting a set of AC brakes on my '20 runabout. It is nice to see what the original box looked like. Thanks for posting.

Is that H pattern steering wheel a fat man steering wheel?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Jim Eviston on Thursday, September 01, 2016 - 02:31 pm:

I had an 'H' steering wheel either close or identical to that one. It was not hinged; it slid up. My guess is that was just before the Radio boom, say late '21.Most auto accessory outfits were into radio in varying degrees.No mention is made that I can see.

David, thanks for pointing out the AC brake boxes.

It's OT, but at first glance, I was a little surprised to see that the boxes were corrugated cardboard. However, it turns out that corrugated cardboard boxes were available starting the last decade of the 19th century:

And just imagine the stuff NOT in the picture. I bet there were OHVs and wicked carbs in the back.

Seth,
Well, OF COURSE they were in the back, you never know when a youngster might wander in, gotta protect those young eyes from such stuff!!!
I could probably fund my retirement if I ran across a stash like that!! Wowziers!

Don't you just wish you could stroll in there and buy out about half the store? Sure wish I could. :-)

Didn't someone post a thread about one of those chairs hanging on the wall in the top center of the photograph?

The H steering wheel is a Neville sliding Fat Man wheel. I have one for my new roadster. There's some contention about there being a special T ford one which is concave like the original T wheel. Mine is like the one shown, convex, but I put the T keyed centre in mine. The original centre hole was tapered.

Allan from down under.

What's that thing on the front corner of the table, beside the tire pumps?...looks like an air cylinder of some sort?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Jim Eviston on Thursday, September 01, 2016 - 06:49 pm:

Allan, I can't prove it, but mine was emphatically a T wheel because I got it on a T steering gear.It may not have been a Neville but that is how it worked. It went to a T guy in Warsaw,Indiana,a great big guy(like I am now) and I remember he offered me what was then crazy money for it but we traded. Got a huge bunch of common parts for it.

At first glance I thought it was a hold up.

Mark. I wasn't thinking about the history of corrugated boxes. Thanks for the history lesson. The things you learn on the forum. And I didn't know there was a fat man that slid up and down.

Ed, Allen, etc... thanks for the education on the "H" Slider! And now we know!!

"Just For Fun" I'm not sure there is anything as captivating as the old Black and White photos. I still try to imagine the colors. I set this up to photograph much like I set up for paintings. It's nice to have some props around.
Thanks Jay and the rest of you for teasing our imaginations.
Rich
