Delivery car tail light bracket

Post by Tbird » Mon Jan 07, 2019 9:13 pm

I had this posted in the classifieds, was curious if anyone who knows who was casting these. The vendors said they are not carrying them anymore. Looking for a tail light bracket for the deliver car. Maybe someone has an extra laying around?
Thanks Mike Bird

John Regan is the one who had the delivery car tail light bracket reproduced. He may still have some. I think he only did a few. Kim

Contact Jack Putnam in Bluffton Ohio. He had some extra long brackets cast which would be good for delivery and hacks. It is longer and drops the tail light down some so it is more visible.

Tom Manocchi out here in California used to make those kind of castings. I think he still does, but only works one day per week. He made some early taillight touring and roadster brackets several years ago, which were flawless, and couldn't be told from the original.

Here's a repop that Tom Manocci made a few months back; I'll ask if he still has it. It's not quite finished, the gate needs to be ground off, as you can see.
