Believe those scissor action shocks are the W-X brand. On the market about 1915, but rarely seen on T's today, Hasslers being the preferred spring shock.

I can't imagine how quickly the holes in the arms wore on the pins through the perch/spring eye.

The best shocks are no shocks at all. For our roads today, a stock Ford is fine.

Yeah Larry S, I do agree. However, some of them are so interesting. On the third hand, a few ideas are so bad that they belong in a display, and not on a driven car!
These are really neat! But I do not think I would try to use them.
