50-53 chassis identification - please help!

Recommended Posts

A friend has two bare frames he wants to build into drivers. Both have tubular shock mounts which puts them @ 1950 or newer. The difference I'm seeing is in how the levers which operate the e-brake cables are mounted to the cross shaft. One has small teeth allowing the levers to be placed in several positions a few degrees from each other. The other one which was just purchased as a 1953 chassis has two flats which means the levers can be placed in only one position that will work (the other position would put the levers straight up which wouldn't work).

Does anyone know when this change took place so I can more closely identify the year of the other chassis which uses the little teeth on the cross shaft? Thank you.
