Help Identify Ammeter

Recommended Posts

Can anyone identify this for me, please? It was in a car built by my father titled in 1947. It has a Cushman  Scooter engine in it, but used some vintage Ford parts such as front hubs. I can't find anything quite like it anywhere. The second picture is the steering column which is obviously from some vehicle that may be related to the ammeter but I don't recognize it either.

Any help would be appreciated. I'd like to find a replacement as this one looks fried. Thanks! John Linaburg in VA

Original Model T Ford ammeters have FORD script and read only 20 amps, this one may be aftermarket and uses a small diameter 1926-1927 ammeter in an adaptor to fit 1919-1925.

I have a couple of those ammeters, they can't be very rare. I did a model T for my father-in-law, I think that is where they came from. Aftermarket , probably.

Thank you to all who replied. It does appear to be from a Model T and I found one online including the mounting adapter that doesn't have the Ford script.

I do appreciate the help. It's nice that a novice trying to track things down can get help from the experts in a pleasant way. A credit to the organization.

Have a great day, all.

John
