The mystery bracket. What the heck is it? Just behind the spring shackle on both sides. Did this have something to do with racing? There is some evidence of a roll bar that was welded behind the drivers seat.


  1. Jim, looks like you will have to become an "old car archaeologist". I suppose those brackets could have been used to tie the car down to a trailer. Check the frame closely to see if it's bent or cracked anywhere.

  2. The mystery is solved! The brackets were from a trailer hitch installed by the previous owner. I also found trailer light wiring in the same area.
