The one on the right could be a standoff for mounting a second spare tire. I found some for my Model A. It required 3 and replaced the lug nuts.
Does it have a threaded hole in the opposite end and the same size as the threaded stud?
Mine were simply made of hexagonal stock. Those are fancier.

When did I do that?

I will check tomorrow about the threaded shaft end. No, it does not have a hole in the opposite end.

I will compare the other part with my windshield supports on my 1914 touring. Thanks for the suggestion.

James. to me the windshield brackets are for screens which mount straight up and down. The notches are set at the same height, and being brass, suit pre 1913 cars. For the 13-14 windscreens they were steel and one side was longer than the other to accommodate the slanting lower winscreen.

Hope this helps.

Looks the same as my 1912 windshield clamp

The right one looks like a limiting stop for a non Ford spindle.
