Information Wanted: Champion Wind Shield MFG Co San Francisco

Post by Matt in California » Sat Sep 07, 2019 1:15 pm

I picked up this windshield with a bunch of other stuff. It looks like it could fit on Model T. But obviously other cars of that era. When I did a Google search I could only find one reference to this company. It was from 1911. The article mentioned how this company was among the budding companies in California’s auto industry.

It measures about 41 1/2 inches wide and 27 1/2 tall. The top is about 12 inches tall the bottom is about 15 inches. If this is on a Model T, What year would it be on? Anyone have additional information?

A desirable windshield if you can find the right person who needs it.

John, Thanks for sharing that this is desirable. I would be up to passing it on to someone else, but my goal would be more in line with getting the correct window. This has the short arms on it and I need long arms. I could use these as the simply unscrew.

I am wondering if anyone has any information on this windshield company.

I recently picked up the lower half of one of these screens, but it lacks the supporting arms. It is of no earthly use to me, and I don't need it. I will very happily GIVE it to anybody who GENUINELY needs it.

John,
Is your part also made by Champion Wind Shield? If so what are the measurements?
