Default Are these Lincoln brakes?

These brakes came from a pile of early Ford parts and I can't place them. Can you? Please let me know. Thank you.

They are not air brakes. Look for a p/n.

All the Lincoln backing plates I've had any experience with didn't have but four mounting holes. Could they be F100?

Do they even have a Ford oval stamped. They could be GM, Chrysler, etc. if not.

Those extra holes appear to have been drilled afterward. They look to be two different sizes.

The backing plates do not look like '40, '41, or '42-'48 Lincoln brakes, and they do not look like F-1/F-100, or F-2/F-250 brakes either.

Not lincoln. They are rear brakes because they have E-Brake holes in them. I'm guessing F250 if they are 12" in diameter. F150 if they are 11" diameter

As Philip Swanson has said, they could be off any brand of vehicle. They are definitely Bendix style, what dia are they?
As stated by others, not Lincoln. I can also attest they are not Auburn. Nor are they Dodge/International.

Just as an FYI, These are authentic Lincoln rear brakes.

I've been searching through other car makers and bendix backing plates trying to match up those tear drop shapes where the brake shoe alignment pins would go through. I don't see a match...

Waiting for the drum roll? Swanson was on the track. '39-'48 Zephyr rears: 44481-R and 44481-L next to the Bendix logo. Good Luck: Fred A
