Identify mystery hub spanner / wrench SPA







Can anyone identify the marque belonging to this hub wrench marked only S-P.A

I have marked the openings in inches, but in metric they would be 60mm x 33mm.
Any ideas are welcomed.

Bugatti Steering Box?

Bugatti Steering Box?Took this steering box out of a type 37 Bugatti when we found a correct t-37 steering box.
  This box is a mystery and we'd like to know what it came from. Clearly French to my way of thinking. Note annular copper contact strip and six copper studs in fixed bolt on end cover that bolts to this end. 

Any thoughts?  Keith

Angelo van de Rijt: "We found this car last week, I think it was parked many years ago in the back of an abandoned bodyshop. Looks like some kind of big renault but I'm not sure, I couldn't find any badge on the car. I'm not sure that the rear body belongs to the same car."

prewar French car widows

Hi, my house was built on a site that used to be a garage. In the 'garden' as well as 3 car roofs which apparently were cut off under German orders, I have found about 10 windows similar tothis photo. they are about 7mm thick.

would it be possible to identify the type of car they come from, and would they be on any use to anyone?

Andrew White


editor:  7 mm seems quite thick ; as if from armoured cars..?
