Antique Auto Parts was owned by Gene Scott. It was located on Valley Bl. in Rosemead.

Not only did they sell N.O.S. Ford parts, but they also made many reproductions.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what those were for.

Back in the 60's there was a T & A parts vendor:
Antique Auto Parts on E. Garvey Ave in Rosemead, Ca.

I used to buy parts from them but don't remember ever seeing that tag.

John,

You're right. It was on Garvey. Been a long time and the memory is a little fuzzy.

Maybe dress up plugs for the cylinder head countersunk spark plug holes? These are made to keep water and debris out of the spark plug area.

I lived in Bakersfield back then. Every time I got to So. Calif. I would swing by Rosemead and also Ford Parts Obsolete in Long Beach. Two of my favorite places.

Antique auto parts on E.Garvey is still there. Funny thing is it's about a block from Derrick Pang's house . The original owner passed on and it's now run by his partner. He's got some interesting stuff.

I believe the disks would be glued to a rebuilt motor. there purpose is they will fall off if overheated voiding your warentee.

I am probably wrong... but the look like bushing/seal drivers to me.

They are engine/transmission mount disks that went on top of rubber bushings for engine mount modifications on Model a Fords, similar to “float a mount “ accessory mounts
