Drag you go for it. The correct answer is ALL three used the same body design which would make it a "Treefer"
|Yesterday 04:32 PM|
The two cars I was thinking about was:
What I found online was Hupmobile acquired the dies from Cord and later Graham made an agreement with Hupmobile to manufacture the bodies for them and Graham had permission from Hupmobile to use so many of them for their cars as well.
So who gets the floor?

Graham-Paige building Hupmobile Skylark using Cord Body dies. G-P also held the rights to use the Cord dies to build the Graham-Paige Hollywood.

|harposrepair||Graham produced these bodies for the second one with the agreement to be able to use this body design for their own cars as well.|

The second one I have seen wasn't a Graham.

Some of you may have already known this cause I only found out about this a few years ago and you guys have been working on old cars a lot longer than I have, but here goes.
I'm thinking of two cars in the late 30's to early 40's range. The first one of is more known than the second, but they share the same body except for the front and maybe the chassis.
The second one I've seen. The owner said he did a lot of research on his and found this out.

Harposrepair said he had a good question. If he is still folowing the thread this would be a good place to let him jump in and ask one.
If he doesn't in the next little while, someone jump in for me.

John actually had it correct until he decided against his first thought. It is indeed as towbar. A 1930's Tow Pilot to be exact. Invented and patented by Cletus A. Kline and manufactured in Caro, MI. You can see how it pivots in the below picture.
If you had to use this piece of equipment today you'd have to punch a couple of holes first.
