Check out this brace....
I'm checkin' out the PUMP!!
I'm checking out the woman with half a face !
serious glare on 1/2 of her face!
Aww come on guys, She's not half bad!
I used to be stationed 38 miles from there.
I have a fender brace just like that in my parts stash. Its in there somewhere.
i have two of those fry pumps 5& 10 gal. charley
I've got a ten gallon Fry. Glad I bought it when I did (decades ago). I couldn't afford one now.
That fender brace is 'overkill'. Its like comparing a sports bra to a filly regular one.
Terry, I did not know you wore a bra.
only since his wife found a lacy one under the seat in his car!!!!!!!
Those braces so ruin the looks of a Model T.
yes but you can carry feed sacks on the fenders and the hood,ha.ha. charley
I was thinkin an 8 point buck would look nice on that fender!
You know, looking at that gizmo the X is only necessary because the cross bar is raised in the center and fender loads would straighten it. Can't figure why they'd go up like that as opposed to straight across Rt. to Left.
The brace is raised in the center to clear the headlights ?
You don't suppose that this happens to be an old picture of my T, do you?
Wouldn't that be cool to have a photo of our T from the 20's !!!
Was the fender brace a blacksmith's invention, or an accessory that was marketed ?? Sure looks like your T, Cameron - any ties to Indiahoma ?
I like the car the gas pump and the coca cola sign. What cool times!! Those folks were tough back then for sure. Tim
Cameron I don't have the original photo, I emailed you some little info and a blown-up portion of the pic. Gary
Rich, they were factory made accessories - apparently they could also be bought in nickel finish:
Roger, thanks much for posting that !! I really appreciate being able to see these old ads and catalogues ! Very interesting. Apparently they had national distribution, from Seattle and San Francisco to the eastern seaboard, but the picture that started this thread is the first one I ever saw.
To a degree, I was sort of hoping it was a blacksmith "one-off", that would have almost made a positive I.D. of Cameron's car being the one in the picture !
I bet that's what these holes in the front crossmember were for. I couldn't figure it out.
