NOS Model T Ford Bumper Speedster Depot Hack Race Car Overhead Valve Ruckstell

This listing is for what may be unique in all of the world today. This is a NOS (new old stock) bumper for a smaller car in the teens or twenties. It was made from hardwood by someone named Hawdos who lived in Corning New York sometime between 90 and 100 years ago. The first photo shows this bumper in front of my 1914 Model T Ford and hanging from the overhead door using two pieces of small wire.

Please notice how well this wood bumper matches the cherry wood plywood dash on this early Model T Ford. This car was modified in 1936 by using Goodyear's first pneumatic tractor tires on all four corners. These fat and tall tires on this car were tall enough to let this car plow through loose snow drifts without becoming high centered on the snow. These tires are wide enough to help this light weight car float over the harder or packed snow drifts.

This bumper assembly measures 62 wide by 4-5/8 high not counting the steel clamps. Each piece of wood measures 1-11/16" high by 1-1/16" deep. I don't have any mounting hardware for this bumper so that will have to be fabricated from scratch. Perhaps one could use this bumper with the stock Ford mounting brackets or even some mounting brackets supplied with another after market bumper. I may be adding more information soon.
