1931 Chrysler CD8 Side-mount straps

Recommended Posts

When I got a pair of 1931 Chrysler CD8 sidemount brackets, there was only a single leather strap with the pair. Seems about right size and vintage, but is 7/8" wide versus slots in bracket which are 1&1/4" wide. Before getting 4 new ones made, I am wondering if anyone has an original they can measure for me? Thanks.

Those are the ones I have on all my cars and the only size I have ever seen.

Gunsmoke,

I polished up my old buckles and had a set made that were 1" wide.

Now I have to try 3-4 times to locate the wheel so the straps fit properly between the spokes.

The slots in the bracket allow you to shift the straps a bit to accommodate the spoke positions.

Thanks to both of you esteemed gentlemen, I'm going to trial fit it on a wheel and confirm length is good and then get some made. Cheers
