Early Telescopic Shock Absorbers 1930s


Recommended Posts

1934 Terraplane and Hudson cars were the first in the industry to employ telescopic shocks on production cars. I have a very original '34 Terraplane with three original Monroe shocks (the type with a refill fitting at the bottom) but a fourth was replaced over the years. None of these leak but I would like to find a match.

Does anyone know of a source for very early telescopic shocks please??

Attaching photos of the front shocks showing the fitting. Yes, I repainted them when I had them off replacing rubber bushings.
