**NOTE** from an eBay correspondent: Hello; your bumper is one of several dozen+ brands of aftermarket accessory "fits all" bumpers that were made during early 1920's before auto makers decided to make cars with bumpers. I have a few acc. bumper catalogs, several different bumpers now & have had ALOT of bumpers in last 49 years of old car parts swaping and I have Never heard of a Eaton Cox so I think it is very odd and someone who needs it will be happy. I have several 1921-34 Lincolns & full set of orig. illustrated parts books & I can say for 100% sure it is not Lincoln _I hope this helps _Thanks. Good afternoon, friends - Can you assist me in identifying the vehicle and function of this bumper? Marked: "Eaton Bumpers, formerly Cox Bumpers/The Eaton Axle & Spring Co. Cleveland U.S.A./Covered by US Patents" Eaton Axle & Spring Co. (Cleveland, Ohio axle manufacturer) purchased Cox (Albany, NY bumper manufacturer) in 1923 - name changed to Eaton Manufacturing Co in 1932 - so we know the time range of this item, 1923 to 1932. Doesn't look like any Ford bumpers of the period that we can see - a truck, perhaps? A spring? I see patents from Cox for "Spring buffers" by Cox.. but just don't see where a device of this kind fits on the vehicle. Spring buffer or bumper; United States Patent 1470960 - (some kind of leaf spring; ) and Automobile Buffer 1,521,757 - (the classic Ford bumper) <O:pHere's a link to our online photos with a number of pictures of the item, and an excellent magnifier: </O:phttps://picasaweb.google.com/mastertonh18/19231932AutomobileBumper?authuser=0&feat=directlink</O:p> <O:p</O:p Thank you!
