    Skip, give me to Monday. SI is checking their warehouse for jacks. The '64 Canadian cars (the Commander) are listed but the US cars are not. We'll see.

      Universal Tool & Stamping, Co. (a.k.a. UNI)
      Walker Mfg.
      Auto Specialties Mfg. Co. (a.k.a. AUSCO)


      Each Jack manufacturer had its own design "rack" and therefore had its own design base.

        Here's a photo some kind soul here sent me (sorry but I can't remember who) of a real Avanti jack.[ATTACH=CONFIG]20008[/ATTACH]
        Thanks for the pic - it looks just like the one in my Avanti...it also looks just like the one that was in my 1963 Corvair right down to the folding handle. The jack in my Avanti had no folding handle so I used a spare one from my old (and gone) Corvair. When the warmer weather apears, I will see if a mfg. name is on the base of the jack...best, Bob

            If it turns out that they are the same could you let me know?
            You'll be a hero to a few Avanti owners!

            I'm guessing that there are more Corvair jacks out there...and probably cheaper than the "exotic" Avanti jacks.

              Sure. I've had them for years, so I don't expect them to change much in the next few days.

                    I remember hearing once that the first jacks for cars would go under the axle/frame. When cars started to get lower and wheel wells smaller, the bumper jack was needed to raise the car high enough to get the wheel/tire out.

                    Any truth to this? I have always had the mindset that the bumper jack was only to be used when nothing else was available - in an emergency...

                                Wow! It amazes me at what little topics will sometimes strike a cord and cause a stir here on the forum. I didn't expect this one to go into two pages of of posts, but here we are. My cars somehow survived with their jacks in place. What I like about the one in my '48 is the big art deco wing nut that holds the jack in place. Forgive me if I've missed it, but if there has not been a Turning Wheels article on jacks, this thread should indicate one would be appreciated.

                                We've had presentations on horn buttons, steering wheels, and hub caps. Why not jacks? Is there a "jack" collector specialist in our midst?
