  • Another "What's This" item.

    Here's something that came with some OLD dealer stock. It's NOT the wife's old fishnet stockings! It's not a Chinese finger trap either! It's metal, roughly 6 feet long and maybe 5 inches wide.

    No specific vehicle application sought here. Just guess what it is.



    Miscreant at large.

    A fuel filter perhaps, running from the filler pipe to the insides of the tank?

          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                  I thought it slipped over the tailpipe to keep the loose rust from falling on the road; DEP required in California.[}]

                        Looks like a parking brake cable.

                          Indeed it is a Parking brake cable, but what does it fit?

                            I don't have a clue Matthew as I don't and likely never will have a car.
