First time poster here. My grandfather (Henry J. Camden) designed the one in the picture for the Model T. Can anyone tell me about the Harrington Bumper in question? Maybe the year(s) used, number manufactured, etc.
Based on a casual search in Google books, it appears that the O.C. Harrington Co. was originally located in Chicago, IL, relocated and incorporated Jackson, MI in 1923 and was eventually sold by Mr. Harrington in 1928 whereupon the name of the company was changed.
I couldn't find ads or references the bumper or the fender brace but did find the "Straight Away Steersman" and "D&B Carburetor" for Ford cars when O.C. Harrington was located in Chicago.
Erik, thanks for the reply. Looking at the bumper, would you be able to place a date to it?
Note the address on the literature.
Since the the company was located in Jackson starting in 1923, I presume 1923 or later.
Has to be before car number 10,000,000, which would be about June of 1924 because it will fit any Model T No. 1 to 10 million! Or they were hedging there bets!
Maybe the better question is when did #10,000,000 roll off the line?
June 1924, just as Mark indicated.
Ahh....Got it now. So the approximate date is between 1923 and June 1924. Thanks.....John
