  1. Likely Canadian. This 1953 DeSoto Firedome V8 with a Canadian Lic. Plate looks like it's got your hubcap.
  2. I owned one like it and sold it on ebay. I recall it was aftermarket.
  3. Don't trash, It's needed somewhere. I was thinking British from what appears to be provision for mounting a rear number plate about that size. It's apparently not for a 1940's or 50' Mark V Jag.
  4. The Internet Archive has a IGC-4092A Autolite distributor listed in a 1944 WWII Ordnance Maintenance Manual but does not give application. (Could still be a Stude, but Military spec?) https://archive.org/details/TM9-1825B/page/n5/mode/2up/search/IGC+4902A?q=IGC+4902A The same archive also has a 1952 Autolite catalog listing many distributors & applications but no "IGC-4092A".
  5. Drain plug gasket? SOSmetal makes a zillion little hard to find auto industry products & fittings. Search didn't find part #SP-453 in their online 1100+ pg catalog http://www.sosmetal.net/e-pubs/Product Catalog/1038/#zoom=z Customer support might help.
  6. I have that Studebaker Trunk (used w/o luggage piece) if anyone is looking for it. Jim

  8. I believe patent #1,123,454 of 1/5/1915 refers to your device: https://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?Docid=1123454&idkey=NONE&homeurl=http%3A%2F%2Fpatft.uspto.gov%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fpatimg.htm
  9. The chrome latch probably has a part number on its backside; that'll tell.
  10. Thank you for replying. I'm attaching my list where the measurements are closest. Could be it. My other reference list wasn't any further help.
  11. Very Nice! I'm wondering if yours is the "Petite" or the "Grande" ? As mentioned at this site: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/triomphe-duesenberg-car-mascot-1877428057 One just sold on ebay for $650, missing its wheel. https://www.ebay.com/itm/ORIGINAL-DUESENDBERG-1930s-HOOD-ORNAMENT-CAR-RADIATOR-MASCOT-DOG-BONE-F-BAZIN-/402024025385?hash=item5d9a7fcd29%3Ag%3AfYsAAOSwzVdeD~DE&nma=true&si=mwfieYhapYbwUOrHgdV05Pm%2FU%2FY%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  12. 1920' to early 1930's sounds right. It's a Universal Fit for upright style windshield frames.......as the box says: "For Closed or Open Cars".
