From the family barn. No vehicles we have take this cowl. Two steel nipples may help ID. Approx 36" long and 5" wide.

I certainly don't need it. Once I know what it is, it's off to the classifieds.

thanks in advance.

Are you sure it is not a seat frame?

As my Irish nanny used to say, "I haven't a clue!"

Seat frame would explain the small holes. I was expecting larger panel holes in a cowl.

Looks like a front seat riser to me. No idea for marque. I have seen similar for Buick, Dodge, even Paige.
Two holes or pins is kind of standard for the seat cushion's matching two pins or holes to sit in and keep the seat cushion from sliding around.

Looks like a Model A coupe seat riser.

Robert, That looks very much like the front piece of a Fordor front sear riser.

Best regards, John Page, Australia

Model A rear seat tudor. Maybe but I am making my best guess based on the fact I don't see a hole for seat adjuster. But it also could be Model A roadster, I don't think they had a seat adjuster, but also could be for seat in rumble. :-) Check in Snyder's Model A catalog, they might show it.
Or it could be for any number of cars.

Are we in consensus that this is not T?

Measurements and close up photos would Greatly aid in the identification of this piece.

It could be a seat riser for an Improved Coupe.

See OP for measurements, and what would be helpful to take a closer photo of. I can do it if I know what would help ID this peice as being T or not.

Robert,

You need to take some better shots. Perhaps front on.

A little hard to tell with the images posted.

Best regards, John

Robert,

No, I don't think we are in consensus that it is not a T part. From the photos it could possible be from several cars or even makes of cars. And from what was posted in the thread so far, I believe it could possibly be a 1926 Coupe part. You posted "See OP for measurements -- if that means "other posting" it would be helpful if you included the link to it, or subject etc. so it could be located more easily.

Below is a photo from the posting at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/708324/757386.html?1504972163 that shows what I think is a 1926-27 coupe front seat frame (I know they only have one seat).



And if it is a 1926-27 coupe seat frame front part then Vieux who started the thread, might be interested in obtaining it as his is in much worse shape.

In that same thread John Page posted a link to an earlier thread that has additional photos of the 1926-27 coupe seat frame (or at least the front part of it). See: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/411944/428851.html?1394583904

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Robert, you say no vehicles you have take this cowl but then the part was identified as probably not a cowl. What vehicles do you have? Are any of them missing their stock bench seats? Logic dictates that would be the best place to start narrowing down an ID and you may not want to sell that part alone after all.
