Auto Trunk

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what year and make of a car this might be to ?  I sanded  some of the black paint of and under that there is a sorta greenish  blue color.

Thanks in advance.

Mid 1920’s. It’s a low end trunk without much value. Probably more valuable as a man cave item.

I'd agree 20's to maybe early 30's - probably aftermarket.  Curved back is for sedan - coupes/roadsters usually have straight back.

 When I was "restoring" my 31 Essex, I bought a trunk like the one pictured above. When asked by my workers what I was going to do with it, I said I was going to put it on the back of my Essex.

 They asked in disbelief, "your are going to put in on the back of a car? That's stupid"

 I said TRUNK? doesn't your car have a trunk? where do you think the name came from?
