Maybe the chain was a farmer fix back in the day. Next time we hike the trail I'll check it out a bit closer.
I doubt that stamped cover was a farmer fix.The picture I posted is of a 1925. I didn't try to match exactly.
I think the answer is going to found by that window mechanism and the shape of the handle and escutcheon.

Plus it made a worthless car a valuable tool.

Check out the radius in the rear window.. the one in the forest had windows that were square like the 1920 / 1921.

1923 Buick ----------------- Forest Find ------------------ 1920 Buick

What Is It? Found This Old Four Door In The Forest Today

Stumbled upon this piece of vintage americana while hiking in the national forest today near Leadville Colorado.

Back half of a 4 door car, 20's or 30's era. Not a Ford or a Chevy. Whatever it was, it was big. Much wider than my Model A Tudor.

Any idea what this is?

The window crank gearbox had a chain, like a bicycle chain, hanging from it.
