I am looking for information to confirm the correct measurements for a 1915 Dodge Brothers Touring car top bows. Assuming bow # 1 is nearest to the windshield, #2 second from the windshield, #3 third from the windshield, #4 fourth from the windshield.

Radius in inches / Inside dimension in inches
Bow #1
Bow #2
Bow #3
Bow #4


I purchased a set of 4 steam bent bows that are the below dimensions.

Radius in inches / Inside dimension in inches

Bow # ? 6” / 57”
Bow # ? 6” / 56”
Bow # ? 6” / 56”
Bow # ? 8” / 56”

I look forward to all comments and information. Thanks so much in advance!

Dale

Dale, I think you are in the ballpark. The '15 here is very close. The front two are 57 1/2 and 56, the other two are broken. The radius of the two good ones are at LEAST 6 inches. You can check it when you are here for Hershey. Have your assistant send a check for the dinner. About half of the ones paid so far have never been to Hershey, should be a good one.

Dale, The simple answer is ALL 4 bows will be the exact same measurements between the bow legs or they will NOT lay down into the saddles. To ascertain that measurement measure the distance from the center of the brackets on each side of the body where the irons are mounted and swivel from. Bear in mind that dimension will be also in the CENTER of those bow legs NOT the inside dimension between the legs! Those measurements in '15 are different from post '19 and can vary slightly so check your car.
