Hello I am looking for a trunk rack for my 26 sedan. I am near San Francisco.

Something along this type is what you will probably need. Looks fabricated. You rarely see a trunk rack on a DB of your type.

If it is a trunk rack you need I have one that reportedly came from a Studebaker.

Reply here if you want me to take a picture.

Some guy wandered into my swap meet space and identified it and I think I wrote the application on the tag that is on it.

Will sell quite reasonably if you can make it work,

Frame measures 45” on the inside.

I hope I could make it work.

That looks to be mostly home made to me. The cross bars are just angle iron and the strips are just flats. The tire carrier and the ends might be correct.

Could be...

To the OP

I don't know much about the authenticity on passenger car parts. Was just passing along the info to see if it helped.

Here is a photo of the trunk rack I have. It is factory made and has the makers tag on the right side. I should have taken a photo of the tag. The rack is in Fremont close to you. 

 I am not sure how the original bumper might fit along with the rack.

What I find interesting is that the spare tire carrier is on these racks. Mine and other sedans and tourings have a threaded rod on the back where the spare carrier screws on to.

This is the trunk that came with the car. It does not look oe. Since you can not fit the spare someone put a cutout on the drivers front fender for a spare to sit in the well. And they drilled a hole in the cowl to mount the spare.

The spare is different because my matching one was stolen of the car.

Can you post a pic or the name of the manufacturer of the rack ? Just trying to learn and make notes for future

Sorry to have dropped the ball.

It will be a couple of more days until I get over there again but will do.

That is the same style of rack as on my 1930 Dodge Brothers Eight. Bolts to the end of the chassis. Mine has different mounts on the rear fuel tank cover pan.

For twenty bucks a guy could make some mounts.

I guess I could box it up but would rather just have it picked up.
