    20's frame

    I have a frame from the mid 20's (probably) that I haven't been able to identify. I know it's not Hudson... and that is where my interests are. It has four wheel external contracting Lockheed hydraulic brakes with 14" drums. The wheelbase is about 124". (I was by myself and measured as well as possible). The frame is straight, and not rotten. It has leaf springs, and a beam axle under the front, as well as springs an axle housing in the rear. I have posted photos in the Chrysler section because I thought it may be a Chrysler product. We are trying to clean up the yard, and this needs to go. Located in Southern Calif. I thought it may be a good foundation for a speedster build. Cheap. I hate to see any old car stuff get scrapped, but if I can't make it go away, it will happen. Does anyone want it?
  3. Thank you all for the input. I will look everything over again and see if I can find any numbers anywhere. In the meantime, if anyone is interested in it, I'll make them a helluva good deal on it (free). It is located in southern California.
  4. Thank you 28Chrysler, can you give me an idea where on the front axle to look? is it a cast number? Or stamped? I appreciate it
  5. Here is a photo of the driveshaft mounting flange. if has four bolt holes. I could not find a number on the left rear frame rail.
  6. The front axle is a beam, not a tube as previously stated. The brake drums are 14". The wheelbase is somewhere near 124". I was by myself, and had difficulty measuring.
  7. OK the front axle is a tube. I will get the photos requested. I made an inquiry in the general section here before, but not in the Chrysler section. There were photos included in that post. If anyone wants to see them, I think you can click on my name and pull up the post from 2018 where I was looking for help to identify a chassis. I will still get the requested photos, as the ones I posted then are no longer on my phone. Thanks again for the help and guidance.
  8. Thanks for the replies. There is no engine/trans. It had wire wheels. The wheels and hubs are gone. I will check the drive flange and get photos this weekend, as well as what type of front axle it has.
  9. Good morning. We have a chassis that we believe to be a mid or late twenties Chrysler product. It has four wheel hydraulic brakes (lockheed) that are external contracting. I am trying to identify it so I can offer it up to someone who may be able to use it. Knowing the year would make that a lot easier. Are there serial numbers stamped on these frames anywhere that will help me ID this chassis? I am in southern California. If there is a local expert around here, I'd be happy to show it to them. I'm a Hudson guy and although I'm very familiar with them, I knowlege here. Thank you, Dany
  10. Great. I'm glad you got it all sorted. That is such a cool car.
  11. Did you ever find the window regulator and glass trim that you needed? I may have the on a 1936,model 67 parts car I have.
  12. Whenever I have to change a tire on the back of mine, I lift from the frame, so the axle drops down to give more room to wrestle the wheel and tire in and out. I have had 275/60-15's on 8"wide rims on the back of a 52 Wasp coupe and had no issue driving (and drag racing ) it.
  13. Wilf, I enjoyed reading about giving Rhodora new life. My build style is similar. I really don't care too much about the shiny paint and chrome. I build them to drive. The rock chips and imperfections in the paint on the front of a car are a testament to the car and the driver of miles of smiles. Your car was built to drive. I'm really glad you are enjoying it. I'm looking forward to the next update.
  14. This sounds like it might have been the Gould family.
  15. I bet you know someone who can make it from scratch.
  16. Perry, Email me at XXXspringspeeddemon@gmail.comXXX (drop the X's) I have the answers to your questions, but can't post photos here.
  17. Do you think that there were a lot of manufacturers with external contracting hydraulic brakes? I don’t do computers too much, and have no idea how to post a photo.
  18. I have a. chassis with #5 Buffalo wire wheels and external contracting hydraulic brakes. We think it is late 20’s or 30’s. Thank You
