Does any one have a picture of a 1953 bumper jack?

Ok thank you. I need one for a 53. I just bought one that was in a 53 but does not look like that.

In the same book that OD posted a picture from there is also a reference to a ‘Senior Car’ bumper jack part number 446871, versus the ‘Junior Car’ jack part number 433143. Although the part numbers may be for the entire jack box and contents, not the jack alone. Perhaps OD can post a picture of the ‘Senior’ jack.

I’m only working from photographs, but the ‘Senior’ jack post appears to be made from square tubing, with the ratchet teeth along the face that would be facing the operator. The ‘Junior’ jack post is a ‘Vee’ shape, with the ratchet teeth along the inside bend of the ‘Vee’.

Neither the ‘Senior’ or ‘Junior’ jacks for this time period had the distinctive ‘pin’ that would fit into a hole along the bottom edge of the bumper. Repairbybruce you’ll have to pin-down what model car you have to determine which of the two jack designs would be appropriate for your car. By the way, the consensus of the forum members is while having the correct jack for the car is an admiral goal, the use of same is not. Most of use consider the OEM bumper jack something to look at, but not use. Back in the day, before we knew any better, those were the only jacks that would be carried in the trunks, hence the only one available when you got a flat tire.

I’m not sure of the availability of the reproduction cardboard boxes that the jack came in.

Hum that interesting. My 53 is a senior car and the car I pulled the jack from was also a senior car. I'm new to this site and have not figured out yet how to post a picture of the jack I have. I do agree with the use of the jack. We are all about keeping the car original and the bigger purpose is for car shows.
