26 Chrysler parts bin mystery bit

Recommended Posts

Having pretty well reassembled my 1926 Chrysler jigsaw puzzle there are still a few bits that I can't find a purpose for, like this odd clamp on device with a square hole.

Maybe I just doesn't belong at all, but it looks old like the other stuff.

It's about 6" long, one of the casting has a bit broken off. 

Thanks

HI TONZ not 100% sure of application but it looks like it clamps on to bumper irons 

I have similar mountings for spot lights on my Chrysler

Well, thus another chapter unfolds.

Anyone got photos of this "Love joy" shock set up.

Or are you guys having a go at me, sounds suspiciously like a porn show.🥴

I would like to know where the name "Love joy" came from, but then again, maybe not.

The name Lovejoy came from Elmer Lovejoy of Laramie Wyoming. He designed and patented the shock and I've heard some aircraft models are still using his design. Laramie is 49 miles West of here(Cheyenne) and between here and there is the high point on I-80 West of the Mississippi at 8640'.

Thanks for the information sagefinds. I am always interested in the history.

Have attached one more picture of the clamp which is correctly installed.
