    What car would use this brass plate? Excellent condition with patina. Maybe 1920s? It's not mine. I just happened to see it at an antique store.

    1912 and earlier Model T. They reproduce them but this one looks like an original.

    You could use it as a key fob for the mens room door at the gas station...

    Sure. $30. Pretty reasonable. If someone here needs it then I'll mail it to them. HAMB love!

    Absolutely! This little antique store has all sorts of oddities. I'll post a pic of the store in a bit. Also got some wax cans and a bottle of "new" Turtle wax!

    as a general rule, model T's are cheap, but early model T's are not cheap. that part looks to not be worn too badly, may be worth some dough to an early T guy. i would have bought it too

    Ok. I wanted to see if one of us needs it first. Here's a pic of the store. She said it came from a hoarder's estate.

  24. Interesting when doing a Google search. It doesn't seem to be in production at all. Mac's did make it at one time but sold only as a pair. How do you tell an Old repro from a pretty nice Gennie? Photos look exactly like yours but without the little scratches. Were it me I'd say "Kool wall hanger" and find a place for it.

    It's original I'm sure. Came from an abandoned house in Arkansas. Got several 1950s and 1960s cans from there also. Crazy I know.

    Love the Ford logo on that plate. I have used All of those wax products, it's so much easier now.

  28. I don't know if that's a step plate or a sill plate or something else entirely, but it surely is cool. Whatever you wind up attaching it to, be sure to use brass fasteners to maintain the cool factor.:D
