My guess would be British, most American manufacturers had standardized to left hand steer by 1920. The front axle spring arrangement may be a helpful clue.

Unless it is a two speed rear, it might be something like a Cotta transmission c. WW1 that mounted right to the differential (Linn briefly used a 3 speed Cotta, but under heavy loads it would jump out of gear and free wheel down steep grades, not good).

Hello, early CHEV had a front end set up like your chassis, I'am not shure how the diff. was set up on a chev. but STUDEBAKER had a trans.-axle with standard 3 speed "H" pattern , they use only two rods to connect the gear shift ,just like yours ,
i would think early chev. !

I think what you've got is from a mid teens Overland car.

Ernest Portner in Rome, NY has a c. 1923? Chevy front axle, doesn't look the same as this? Someone has been listing a pair of early Chevy wheels in the local pennysaver for $100 but I don't need to build a "vintage" trailer that bad.

It may just be an old two speed rear end.

Rear springs have ten leaves in each spring and are mounted upside down as compared to normal. Distance from front to rear axle 110 inches. Some of part numbers on frame are left front spring clamp E4547 with a Y in a diamond.Right E4549. Front springs have 8 leaves.Brakes have part number 20891 and 20890 with a diamond and a B in it. Left axle is 17 1/2" and right is 25 1/2". As in pix there is a hump above differential in frame. Any ideas? Diamond T?

Molinegb,
Try the Antique Automobile Club of America. They have a "What is it?" forum. I've always been able to get frames, axles, etc... identified on their site. Here is a link.

Hope it helps.

Frame is not a truck. It is a frame from Saxton Six car from mid teens. Front axle has been reversed. Thanks for the input.
