Found these at Auburn, In. car auction and swap Friday. I just could not pass them up. They are 70" long X 9 3/4" wide, they have three places for the running board supports and the remains of a forged support still attached. Also they appear to be factory not something welded up. Anyone have any ideas as to what they were meant for? I'm thinking school bus or a station hack.
'29 / '29 AA Truck
Has what appears to be the remains of a forged bracket, so probably from 1928. Used on the AA Express Delivery & AA Panel Van etc but not all AA's used the full length running board.
If you used those,; you could stretch a sedan or touring body and make a taxi with jump seats, out of it.
I would bolt them to the wall and make some shelves out of them.
Expanding T running board luggage racks are a good way to hang them on the wall. Clamp them to the running board, and hang them with the expanding part towards the wall.
