    Looks big enough to be Packard or in the Packard class. Is that shock made by Watson? Bob

    I have a '29 Chevy chassis, it only has two running board brackets per side.

    I'd think maybe a large coach, the rear tin-valence and long (3) bracket distance.
    Often truck frames had a deeper section to them.

    There is a 1941 Chevy 3/4 ton truck chassis I plan to save from a scrap yard too. The three running board brackets per side are rare and should help ID yours. Bob
