has a hinged door that fits opening. may lay down I have it standing up.
Hello Mr. Jim, I`m not scared to say I don`t know but`- could it be a Turtle Deck ( Trunk Compartment) for an unidentified Car of the 1920s- similar to the T Model Ford Roadster- but another make ? The rolled bead around the base and the fold up door lend itself to that-- possibly...
Small storage for Golf Clubs or spare tire...
Is the inside reinforced with a wooden framework of any kind?
Interesting Find- I`d like to hear other view points. Good Luck & God Bless,---Charlie
yes has wooden braces. check hundreds of old car photos couldn't find anything. no writing just 302 stamped into the wood
Is there a handle on the lid? May be a part number or maker there...--Charlie
May be hard to find a maker without much research- but I think that`s what this is... definitely " Roadster Model" of whatever make...
let me find the lid and I will get back next couple days. thank you
Neat piece if we can figure it out- valuable to someone doing a restoration on this model. Looks to be in pretty good shape. Styling could go even further back into the late teens...say to 1925---A smaller make of car... Good Luck and you`re welcome----Charlie
Any chance that is simply a fireplace cover rather than an auto part?
I wouldn't think so. it has wood in it.
That's exactly what i was thinking - Well not exactly. I just know that it looks very much like items our Great Uncle had in his THREE garages - LOL
He collected antique Ford automobiles. Mostly from the 1930's.
my father had mostly all old fords thats why I always thought it was from an early ford.
also has black, what looks to me, automotive paint inside
It would be like this, right?
