If it were larger in diameter it would look like the pressure plate in my old Harley Panhead ,so I am going to guess cluch pressure plate /spring pack for a Cushman,,WAG,

Hey! Where's all you engine and transmission men? What the heck is this? Surely ( I know, don't call me Shirley) one of you knows what this is!

Pretty goofy looking valve spring if you ask me. Something as compicated as that would have to fit a engine like this.

Go for it Joe!

Wow that's a wild engine...

Mine probably isn't the best question, but here goes...

This is a Chevrolet factory authorized dealer accessory turn signal kit for a '49-52. There is something about this system that is unusual compared to the universal turn signal switches of the day. What is unusual about this add-on turn signal system?

Don't think ANY of 'em had 4-ways in those days and pretty much all cars were 6 V. I do remember the self-cancelling part on my dad's '49 Chev - it had a little rubber wheel that contacted the back of the steering wheel hub

That car was used in the movie Corvette Summer starring Mark Hamill and Annie Potts. Its the story of a young man searching for a stolen high school class project, a tricked out Corvette. He spends his summer looking for it. While this movie was not nominated for a Academy Award it's full of hilarity and high jinks. In the movie Ken ( Mark Hamill) says his memorable "catch line" "Far Out!"Who could ever forget that scene Annie Potts after eating six Burrito Grande's, passes gas and her underwear blows up like a balloon! Great watching!

I give it a three thumbs up.

BB

Go on, ask. How the heck did he know? I know you want to. Go on ask.

Oh yea, it was built by Dick Korkes of Korky's Kustoms.

I have not heard of korkes custom ,George Barris built the original one , I just assumed he built the second one also.the first car was RED and while it was at I belive MGM studio during the filming it was stolen,so the had to build the second car GOLD to finish the film,they later recovered salvage of the original, that goes along with the movie , I will try to post picture as all I can post now are file photos ,a storm hit my cop machine /fax answering machine and printer,and a pretty bad one is moving in now.
