Anybody recognize what this came out of? I may keep and use it as a display in the classroom
Studebaker had a center steer in their Hawks. Maybe?
mid 30s Mopar, is where I'd start
Not Mopar. I don't think I have seen anything quite like it. If I had to guess I would say Studebaker 1952 or newer but I really don't know.
Later... not a fifties Studebaker, Packard, Nash. Willys or Hudson. Not Mopar. If it was Ford or GM I would expect a positive ID by now. The sway bar made me think it was postwar but now I think of it, a few cars had them in the late 30s. If I felt like further searching I would concentrate on late 30s - 40s.
From old Chiltons shop and parts manual the only upper control arm that looks like that is 1942-47 Hudson. Book only covers 42-55.
Just a guess Post 1937 Packard. Bob
I think we have a winner?
Awesome! Thanks for the help (those links are awesome too)! I think I will make it into a display/example piece for the classroom...
Late 40's early 50's Studebaker had a planner front suspension with a transverse spring also serving as the lower locating links eliminating the lower A arms. Jeepster had a similar set up.
here are photos of the 46 Hudson I worked on last week.
