What are these wood rails

Post by Jeff Hood » Fri Nov 15, 2019 3:39 pm

These wood rails and corners were in a bunch of stuff I aquired. It was a mix of parts from Model T, Model A, and ?? Does anybody recognize them?

I think the first picture appears to be the door striker support on touring and or roadsters. Some scale would help😊

The frame rails (if that’s what they are) look like they could be for a Roadster of some kind.If you have a T measure the distance between the front and center body to frame rail mounts ,center to center. If you have some holes that measure the same distance on your wood maybe that’s what it’s for?? Just a guess.

Model A's that had wood sub rails were; 1930 / 31, A - 400, Victoria, & 2 door sport phaeton.
Looks like you have parts for one of those body styles !

Well, actually, many A bodies had wood side rails: Fordor Sedans, Cabriolets, Convertible Sedans, Vickys. These are not from the Fordors, nor the cabriolets, I would suspect Vicky or Convertible Sedan.
T'ake care,

They look like they may fit a Model A Vicky by the curve in the back, I don't know about a delux convertable 2dr Sd, so few of those were made.

Curious but who makes Model A wood. Is it avaliable for most A’s? I have Model T’s along with most on the T forum and getting a wood kit for T’s isn’t always easy and for some T’s getting harder to find a supplier that’s easy to get a hold of. Most of the time!
