This is car-related. The coin is to cover the engraving, not for scale. Wazzit?
Its used to test the spring force on windshield wiper blades, possibly by TRICO
Not perfect....... but very, very close.
It's made by Anco (Marked as "Made by the Anderson Company").
Pick any prize from the top shelf.
Edit: I checked online and I see that Trico purchased Anco a year ago, March of 2019. So you are getting closer to "perfect", a little off but close enough for government work.
I knew the wood stove shaker . but this piece I got in a box of 40's - 50's car parts. it is the only one I can not figure out .
anybody out in HAMB land know
virginia bell. famous stripper! she lived into her nineties...
dipstick location, but i can't remember which is which!
That was an easy one, I have two boxes of NOS ANCO Rainmaster blades for my firetruck.
Possibly a diaphragm housing for a mechanical fuel pump, the metal appears to be pot metal ?
I think it goes the side of a wood burning stove, opens and closes something, just don't recall what it opens and closes...lol
Thought I was one the last page.
I thinks it's for opening/closing the grates inside a stove; aka "shaker" handle
Ralphie's ol' man was probably looking all over for the damn thing..
Snap quiz, speed thinking trials, multiple choice question.
The Hood ornament you see perched upon the " JACK STAND " Quickly, can you identify it as,
Tim, looks like an input shaft bearing retainer to me. Late 30s early 40s GM
'51, '52 Chrysler New Yorker / Saratoga
Winner, winner, it is indeed a MOPAR part, good eye sir.
41 GMC, is that ornament available?
It is a possession of mine, is it something that you are in need of ? This piece is extremely pitted, I bought it for 15.00 at a swap meet. Its really a piece of junk from my pile, if that tells you anything. To answer your question, sure its available, but in my opinion, its really not worthy to be put on a car that needs it.
Nailed it looks like 38-42 THANKS
Don't NEED it but thought it might make a cool ornament on a radiator shell.
See, we are of the same mindset. I have a bunch of cool old radiator grille shells as well. I wish I had two of them, I would have given you one for the price of shipping, but I think I will hold onto this one for now. But thank you for asking. Dennis.
Dennis, at least now I know what it is when I go looking for it.
Hey Joe. I just mocked this up to give you an idea of what it can look like, purely as inspiration.
Looks like a 28-29 Ford shell there. Held up by a firehose nozzle. I would think moving it forward so the wings are right over the shell and the tire forward would work too.
If you scroll back, GATZ identified it correctly. and it is a MOPAR part.
OK...I've got one. I was going to put it on my Dominique thread, but this is a cool place. Can anybody I.D. the center part of this grille? The Outside is cold rolled steel with a mesh insert. I don't have the center part and don't have a clue what it is. Clue...the car was built in 1962.
^^^^^ Good question since it's said it was picked up at a junkyard.
Modified 55 Buick emblem?
Looking closer at the round center part in relation to the width of the "bars". The center looks larger and the bars look thinner. Hmmm
No idea on width. I just ran with the Buick theme and put two and two together.
I've cut and trim a few cast trim pieces to make fit. Is it possible it's been make to look thinner by removing material from the backside?
Maybe it's time to move this to it's own thread now. We're in Hi Jack land now.
