    I’m with the Flyer on this one.

    No quick changes till late 30’s, open axles a little later. This is not a quick change yet open axles. Why would anyone build that for a midget?

    Let’s see what other elements are on this mid 30’s car.

    Looking for ID on these steering box castings. Based on what I've seen, they don't seem to be Schroeder, Evans, Halibrand, Norden, or Casale.
    Looks to take Franklin guts possibly. Anybody recognize it? Thanks! IMG_20211017_212539175.jpg IMG_20211017_212542297.jpg IMG_20211017_212550842.jpg

    This is the earliest Cragar catalog I've seen. I believe it to be 1936 or so. Has 'Cragar Improved Head' which came out in '35, but no mention of V8-60 stuff, so likely not '37 or later.
    No Schroeder brakes, probably not available yet, but Cragar Junior head is listed for Waukesha, including some Waukesha specs.

    Looks like a early Schroeder, similar to the one in the original Spaulding brothers track roadster.

    Found a few other threads with similar boxes where others thought possibly early Schroeder.
    But apparently Schroeder thought it was not one of theirs?

    Here are 2 threads with similar boxes.
