I need help identifying these shock absorbers

Recommended Posts

These shock absorbers are fitted to my 1930 Chrysler model 70 here in the UK.  These are pictures of the front right. They are not original equipment however they are on the car and look of the period. Numbered 39579 If I am going to get the renovated I need to know the make and model number.

Can anyone help please?

There is a 'What is it ' sub-forum below. I suggest you post this there. It will stay on page 1 a lot longer.

The double acting layout of them is similar to those on my 1930 Dodge Brothers 8.

 

Who made Delco Lovejoy under license?

 

Did DL have a plant in Europe making shock absorbers?

 

Where was the car made? Mine is Canadian but the shocks are from the US I think.

 

The patent for the DC-8 version was put up in the Dodge Brothers forum below, a while ago.

This topic is about a single acting shock, but does have some good information.

Here is the topic with the patent. I cleaned up the html version and put it up as a pdf.

Here is a photo I found on the www.

This purports to be a Chrysler 70 for sale. The shock absorbers are single acting and quite different to what you have.

Thanks for all the help with these.

This is the answer to my query regarding Shock Absorbers fitted to my 1930 Chrysler Model 70. The answer provided by Apple Hydraulics.

 

I am assuming that Chrysler might have fitted these to their export models.

 

“Shocks like yours used for a year or two on big cars like Packard or Pierce Arrow or Chrysler (with different arms for every application).

This "version 1.0" is replaced with shocks that have plugs on both ends of the body and, in late 1930s with shocks like 1941-49 Cadillac rear (for example, see pictures on https://www.applehydraulicsonline.com

under Cadillac). All measurements stayed same (body dimension, spacing between mounting holes).”
