Does anyone know what these parts are for? I bought most of a 1926 chassis with running gear and an uninstalled depot hack body of unknown origin. Also included in the package were some unidentified parts.
Each has what looks like a fresh saw cut on one edge suggesting that they were either originally one piece or were cut off of something else. Assistance in finding out what they are would be appreciated.
'26-'27 Front fender brackets to the frame, now sawn away so the riveted stubs still should be on that frame.
Someone cut those off so they could the earlier fender irons on. I have committed the same offense. 35-40 years ago, in my part of the world no improved car fenders existed. Everything else did. But no fenders.
Yep. I, too, will admit to having committed that same offense many years ago. In my case, the rear cross-member had previously been so disfigured as to be nearly useless. So the frame was no loss as a '27 or late '26.
Thanks, guys. Now I know the rest of the story.
